Decorate To Celebrate Quest Designer...

What an honor this is for me I was asked to be a guest designer for Decorate To Celebrate. I am fairly new to blogging and this was the first time I have been asked to be a guest designer. There theme for the week is BABY BIRTHDAY OR BABY "BIRTH" DAY we can do anything we want as long as it wasn't a card or a layout. The task wasn't too hard it was just trying to pin point exactly what I wanted to do. I decided to to BABY BOY "BIRTH"DAY. I decided since I had not used my Cricut Imagine in awhile I would dust it off and put it to work. I used Nursery Rhymes cartridge for all images. Here are my creations I hope you enjoy.
I decided I would do a few things, since using  my Imagine is so easy to make multiples.

I started out with a baby announcement I made a total of five of them. I used the layer feature on the Imagine to make the tree and animals have a 3D effect ( love this feature) I cut all images at 5".

Here is a close up of the baby announcement. I love the cute little animals, and the colors.

Next I made a cute gift bag. I cut the top of the bag off and then used a Martha Stewart punch and punched the top of the bag. I cut the It's A Boy badge at 3", I used the fill page feature on the Imagine and filled my sheet with 9 of these badges. They can be used to decorate the outside of your envelope or put on the back of the announcements. I wanted to make a cute handle so took matching ribbon braided it together and attached with black sparkle brads to the bag.

Here are some close up pics of the bag and all the fun details I added.
An after thought I added a couple buttons to the badge.

I made this rosette out of some gray muslim material. Cute different round sizes, burned the edges and added a gem in the middle for some bling. The rosette is detachable, put a bobby pin on it so it can be worn by the mother. This was so much easier to make than I thought.
Made this large rosette ribbon badge with one of the 9 It's A Boy badge. I attached gray muslim material, white cardstock, coordinating ribbon and more muslim material (did a quick hand stitch and gathered in a circle) Turned out really nice if I don't say so myself.

Here are some close up pictures of the rosette ribbon badge.
Here is a side view, to show you the thickness of the project together.

I had so much fun making these projects. I am so honored to be asked by Decorate to Celebrate to be a guest designer. Don't forget to stop by their blog and enter in their fun challenges, and see all the other guest designers creations.
