Wrapping Up Project 100 {Baby Cards and Crafts}

I started PROJECT 100 back in January as a personal challenge to use up my "stash" by creating 100 different projects before buying any more paper, buttons, stickers, etc.  In retrospect, I made a couple of exceptions to the rules.  When Scrapbook Steals had Silhouette accessories available, I bought the starter kit for fabric (along with all the fabric paint) and rhinestones.  I've purchased some random stamps and stickers (like two $3 stamps and five packs of $1.50 thickers) from TJ Maxx and Marshalls.  But for the most part, I've stuck to the original rules of only buying supplies as needed for specific projects or Vanlikethecar Design orders.  I would give myself a B+ for following the rules. 

It took me almost four months but I am now exceedingly proud to announce that I have successfully completed PROJECT 100!!!!  As of the last blog post, I had five projects left in my countdown.  So here they are (plus one) - all super cute ideas for the little baby in your life.

1.  Baby Bib Cards.  Addie B Designs released three new bibs for their summer collection.  (Make sure to check out their Facebook page for super cute bibs, booties, hair accessories, and everything else adorable and monogrammed for baby!) 

So, new baby bibs means new baby bib cards!  Here are the cards (4) I created inspired by Addie B's adorable bibs.

Supplies:  Patterned Paper (My Mind's Eye); Cardstock (American Crafts); Stamps (Lawn Fawn, Unity Stamps); Brads (Oriental Trading Company); Digital Files (Lettering Delights); Other (Silhouette Cameo, Tim Hotlz Distress Ink, American Crafts Zing Embossing Powder, Versamark Ink, Memento Black Ink).

2.  Painted Baby Onesie.  To go along with this adorable bib I ordered from Addie B Designs...

...I made this hand painted onesie featuring a design from the new Lawn Fawn Critters Ever After collection, my Silhouette Cameo and Silhouette fabric vinyl. 

3.  Button Monogram.  Here is a button monogram I made for a client.  I seriously need to make one for Charlotte - so cute!!

Here is a link to the blog post with another button monogram I made a few weeks back.  And if you want to make one yourself, here is a link to the tutorial by the oh so fabulous Jana Paddington on the Scrapbook Steals blog.

So, we have a total of 6 project (4 cards, 1 onesie, and 1 monogram) bringing our grand total to 101 PROJECTS!!!!  

Thanks so much for following along and encouraging me to craft my way through this goal.  I'll probably restart a similar challenge once we get settled back in California for the next few months.  I still have way too much paper.  :)

As always, thanks for stopping by!!

    I love those bib cards...may I ask what cut you used?

    1. Misty, I used the bib silhouette cut from Lettering Delights ( Mirror image above, move, then weld. You're been rocking your silhouette lately, btw. :)

  5. Baby bibs and bib cards? I think this will make a very great impressions on people, especially on a baby shower. They look cute. Great Job!
