Baby Nursery Decor with Traci

Hi Lori fans!
It’s Traci and I’m excited to be back on Lori’s blog to share a fun project with you!  This week I was scrolling through all of Lori’s wonderful designs and I came upon her adorable sleeping owl with the phrase “Naps Fix Everything”.  I smiled…and although I immediately thought how nice it would be to go take a nap, my creative brain decided this would make a cute door hanging for a baby’s nursery or to hang on the outside of a front door so that all of those well-meaning delivery folks wouldn’t ring the doorbell.   Now most of you know that I am way past the baby stage….my boys are 23 and 20….but I decided to create this as a little gift for a friend.

First I created the frame using Lori’s 3d Double bracket-shaped frame.  When you see the file, it may seem a bit intimidating…but don’t worry!!  It’s easy to put together once you have the shapes cut out.  Lori was even sweet enough to provide us with a You-Tube video for assembly.  You can find the video here!
For the rest of the project, I did several things.  I created a rectangular white base background and did a print & cut for the “Sshhh…Naps Fix Everything”.  Then I loaded another piece of white cardstock into my CAMEO, filled the owl and branch pieces with some of Lori’s digital papers, and did print & cut for those.  Once they were cut, I assembled the pieces with a few pop dots and added them to my base rectangle.  If you have never tried digital papers for print & cuts, I would encourage you to try them out!   It will save you from cutting up all of your cute scrapbook paper, and Lori has wonderful designs here.
So for all the moms out there who hope the delivery person doesn’t ring the doorbell, and for everyone else who knows someone who has had a baby, I hope I’ve inspired you to create a cute gift!  Happy crafting!!

It’s Lorrie here and I am excited to pick the theme for this week’s link up party.  We absolutely love seeing what everyone creates with Lori Whitlock files and really appreciate you linking up here on the blog so that others can be inspired by your creativity as well.
I don’t know about you, but summer brings lots of birthday celebrations in my family!  Birthday celebrations calls for birthday cards and fun little gifts.   I thought a Birthday Theme would be perfect for the link up challenge!  Link up your birthday cards, gift boxes, banners or any birthday celebration project using one of Lori’s SVG files from her blog or one of Lori’s Silhouette files from the Silhouette online store.  You could be the winner of a $15.00 gift card for a shopping spree at LoriWhitlock.com!!
For my project, I used Lori’s Hot Air Balloon Box and Balloon Card.  I thought it would be fun to cut them out of clear acetate to add a little something unexpected.
I love that you can see the crazy stuffing inside the box.  It just screams “HAPPY”.  I cut the acetate with the Silhouette!  I used overhead transparency and set the blade at 6, speed at 3 and pressure at 25.  It worked perfectly!
I made a matching flat balloon silhouette on the inside of the card so there is room to write your greeting. It’s fun to try different papers, patterns and even clear acetate when making projects. I can’t wait to see your Birthday creations!  Be sure and link them up for a chance to win!!
