I Heart Maps

This was one of my last on the ‘to do’ list for Owen’s nursery (aka corner of our room:)

I made some cards using this same method last year and they turned out great. You really can’t go wrong with maps and hearts…

Of course, I had seen many of these on pinterest and loved the idea right from the start…I just needed an excuse to make one: enter baby. Okay, maybe that’s a bit backward…

I got this frame from Ikea (oh how I love shadowbox frames!) and my mom and J’s parents had already sent me some awesome AAA maps. Then I gathered a few other supplies: glue dots (to make the hearts stand out), 

some spare red paper, tape, a paper cutter, and my trusty heart punch (as exhibited here and here - tell me it wasn’t a good investment!).

Then I just stuck the hearts on. 

Here’s the finished product in Owen’s nursery.

Clearly this was taken before baby arrived as now the nursery is strewn with blankets, burpies and onesies…

But the hearts still look great and in a few months I’ll get those blankies off the floor:)

Classy Stamps

I’ve made no secret of the fact that I like stamps. I rarely buy ‘special’ stamps for myself (case in point: I believe our wedding thank-you notes had a polar bear stamp on them…our wedding was in February but, lets be honest, I chose the most practical stamp).

But when I saw these Pioneers of American Industrial Design stamps I could not resist. I think they’d look really cool in a shadow box frame. What do you think?
