Shhhh Vintage Door Hanger for baby

This is my favorite time of year.  The flowers are blooming and birthday season has sprung (in my family we have myself, my Aunt, my husband, three of our 6 kids and many more people - whew!)!  I love when babies are born in Spring as creating baby projects, like this Vintage Door Hanger, inspires me to use sweet lambs, bunnies and more.  Say 'Hello' to a newborn while you don't have to say 'Good-Bye' to your favorite stamps and accessories!  *Grab YOUR Fun Last Chance Items and with FREE SHIPPING (April 21-25).  Celebrate all the new life with me, create a pretty door hanger as a great gift (or to decorate your own home)!

OK so I have a stack of these backs from my Designer Series Papers.  This is the cardboard/chipboard that is in the back of the paper.  I have a handy stack that I use for various reasons - some thicker than others, but all thicker than our card stock.
 
Cutting this 12" piece into 4" lengths with my Rotary Stampin' Trimmer (#126889 cutter / 129407 rotary).
 
This piece is a thicker heavy chipboard.  Use the Circles Framelits to punch this door knob hole.  Due to it's being extra thick, I had to flip it over and follow the impression from the front to cut from the back - so it took two times through my Big Shot.
I adore this vintage *Etcetera Designer Series Paper.  With a beautiful collection that is fun to mix up patterns, you can create a variety of beautiful images.  Adhere to the Chipboard with the broad tip on the Multipurpose Liquid adhesive.
Apply this beautiful *Victoria Crochet Trim and *Ruffled Baked Brown Sugar Trim with the Sticky Strip adhesive.
 
Stamping this vintage lamb from the *Storybook Friends stamp set with the Baked Brown Sugar ink for a Spring accent.  I even 'signed' this project with my Say It Your Way stamp... it's a fun addition that, like an artist, is a signature.
Using the *Etcetra paper to create this cool rose with the Spiral Flower Die from the Occasions Mini.  Adhere it with your Hot Glue and apply the adhesive backed *Large Pearl Jewels for an elegant accent in the center of this mixed media rose.
Using the *Typeset Alphabet Dies to create what ever you want said.  Here the Champagne Glimmer paper is a beautiful way to say 'Shhhhh'.
Option... Here are two ways to use this stunning vintage *Etcetera Designer Series Paper.  Which do YOU prefer?? Leave me a comment and let me know.
 
I'm so excited for my girlfriend Callie who has been blessed with a wonderful pregnancy and is delivering her baby girl tomorrow.  My other girlfriend Susan is expecting her first granddaughter and I couldn't resist creating these to celebrate the babies!!
The same packet of paper, this *Etcetera has a wonderful collection of beautiful patterns that are fun to mix and match. 
 
Applying the adhesive backed *Large Pearl Jewels about this Vintage Door Hanger is a subtle but pretty elegant accent.
 
What a fun way to decorate your home... and with our large variety of papers, you can have fun personalizing door hangers for holidays or personal style.

 As a mom of six, one who regularly receives visitors of my friends, neighbors and delivery people... having a door knocker like this is a great way to ask for some quiet.  (As in, don't ring my door bell, getting my older kids and dog all excited for the door, lol... let that baby sleep!!)  Say 'Hello' to those new babies in your life... and don't say 'Good-Bye' to these beautiful and timeless tools, stamps, ribbons and papers... they are priceless (but will go fast - grab YOURS while there is FREE Shipping and take my Spring into Cards class for FREE).

What Others are SAYING about Gettin' Crafty Stampin'...

Jamie is so passionate and creative about making cards - and wants everyone else to join her in the fun! She is so encouraging and positive in her attitude, helping me along when I get frustrated - and then rejoicing with me at the finished product! I love going to her classes to get new ideas, learn techniques, and have loads of fun in the process. ~ Christine C.

Jamie has wicked awesome classes! If you don’t like a particular stamp or paper/ink color Jamie wants you to change it to suit your style! I did my sister-in-law’s entire bridal shower from invitations/thank you cards, party favors to decorations, it was quaint and whimsical! Everyone ooh’d and ahh’d! I’ve had lots of special requests for classes and Jamie delivers; she always has tasty treats and flavored coffees too ~Ashley W.

I have been attending Jamie's classes for over a year. Her ideas for cards are fresh and fun. She always tries to have several different styles of cards available, so everyone gets to make cards that fit their personal style. The techniques she shows each class can be used in many different applications. She is very patient teacher when instructing class members on how to use the Stampin Up products. ~ Carol D.

If I looked up the word sparkle in the dictionary, I would find Jamie Albanese picture there. I have had the sweet blessing of knowing Jamie and her family for over 5 years now. Every time I am with her I feel loved and inspired. When I am in one of her classes I feel my creative juices flow, as she encourages me to go outside my comfort zone. Jamie helped our girl scout troop make cards for a soldier who needed some encouragement!!! For any of you who have not been in one of Jamie's classes, please don't let another day slip by. She is a beautiful friend and she will become yours too. ~ Blessings, Karen:-)

Jamie has a great eye for style and flair, and it shows in her work. Yet she can pick up on your own individual style and makes great recommendations. I love that she is always flexible for last-minute decision maker mommies like me! So much fun to host craft events with your friends and family - that personal touch always means so much. ~ Adonna
