Shop 'Til You "Drop"



Welcome to the mid-March My Favorite Things blog hop. You're right on track if you hopped here via Jody. If not, take a few minutes to get caught up, starting with Kim. You won't want to miss one bit of today's cuteness! :)

Today, we're featuring this month's VIP Package, which includes Baby Bump (a set from April's upcoming release) and a very cool assortment of related products (ribbon, diaper pins, notecards, and even a free companion sentiment set). The VIP Package is available for one day only - today! After that, the sets go back into hiding until April's release.

So, check out this awesome Baby Bump image. Our signature "Who's That Girl" is preggers - how fun is that?! And the sentiments are just as fun. I especially love "Shop 'til you 'Drop,'" so I decided to put together a quick tri-fold gift card holder using this tutorial from Splitcoast.

On the front, I paper pieced most of the stamped image and used Copics to color the rest (skin, pants, boots). The bags are pieced with Kraft, and I gave them "real" rope handles using some twine.

When you open the first fold, you see the "Shop 'til you 'drop'" sentiment.



Open the second fold to find a small envelope that holds the gift card, with some space below for a personal note.



Your next stop on the hop is a real treat - our April guest designer Kerry J! She's amazing!

Thanks for visiting!
