KBD - Monday Monthly Spotlight

Hello everyone!

Happy Monday!  Today is the first Monday of the month and I'm up for a spotlight on the Kitty Bee Designs blog.  Today I'm sharing an up-cycle project featuring the sweet Giraffe Cutie digital stamp. I had a lot of fun with this project and love the end result.

This is one of those treat bags one of my swap partners sent to me.  That is why you see the creases towards the top of the bag.  I thought it would be fun to keep the bag and maybe use it for a project.  I guess it is a little rough around the edges, but the rest of it came out the way I had hoped.  Here's a close-up.  This shot looks a lot better!  (hahaha)

I reallyl can't believe I made this!  (hahaha)  Talk about going out side the box.  I'm pretty stoked with the end result.  After printing out Giraffe cutie I colored and fussy cut her out.  I thought it would be cute to add the pink and white floss as a bow on her.  I used the same floss for the tag.  I used several dies for this section.  Here is the list: rolling rose from CC Designs, designer mini tags & mini leaves from Taylored Expressions, and the following Die-namics from MFT: mini rolled roses, chevron stripes & grosgrain texture board, and lastly from Little B: circle and scallop dies.  I also used a swiss dot embossing folder on the white circle die.  In the center of at least 3 of the roses are half pearls.  The sentiment was handwritten by me.

Hello Little One

If you would like to purchase Giraffe cutie you can pick him/her up in the Kitty Bee Designs etsy store along with a few other adorable images created by our AWEmazing owner Ruth.  I know there are a couple more giraffes I would love to pick up to make some other baby projects and with the holidays upon us there are tons of cute images to create that special project with.  If you're not in to giraffes, there are a ton of other adorable images you can choose from, including a whole bunch of new and fun animals.  Can't wait to see what you all make!!

Thanks so much for stopping by today.  I hope you enjoyed my project and will think about upcycling something to turn it in to something new.  Until next time, have a great Monday & enjoy your November days!!
