STAMPIN’ PRETTY BABY ADVICE . . .  JULEE:  Occasionally trade Pampers for pampering.  You’ll need a breather (massage, pedicure, uninterrupted time to play with paper) from those adorable, unpredictable, feisty kiddos.


  • Each strip of Twitterpated Designer Series Paper (Occasions Mini Catalog) is cut to 1″ x 4″ and layered on a 5 1/2″ X 4 1/4″ Very Vanilla card base.
  • I had a little fun modifying the interior sentiment (Sweetly Said) for twins.
  • Stampin up baby card mojo monday punch occasions mini catalog blog hop I used the Stampin’ Up! Adorning Accents Edgelits Dies and coordinating Embossing Folder to crop and kick up the envelope flap.  I’ll share a 1 Minute to WOW! Video Tutorial demonstrating how to do this tomorrow!
