CC134 and Baby Letters….

First off, the Color Combo for today is CC134. You can view more info about it <here>. The colors are Blue Bayou, River Rock and Chocolate Chip. I didn’t have a chance to get a sample made, but you can find a link to one in the SCS thread. Have fun with it! I hope to make one today, but I am meeting up with Julie, Sharon and Jen so we’ll see.

But I did get the letters done for Caroline (the girl half of the twins my SIL is expecting – ANY DAY NOW!!). So I’ll show you those! I had a terrible time getting them all in one shot cause it was a lot of letters! I’ll show you the whole name and then I’ll tell you what I used!

There’s the whole name. I used the white monogram letters from Michael’s. The paper is all Fancy Pants Sweet Pea line. I traced the letters on the paper and cut them out – slightly undercut. Then mod podged the paper on to the letters and after it dried I sanded the edges a little. Next I sprayed them with the Plaid Acrylic Sealant in matte. That’s it! I did embellish two of the letters, but I wanted to leave them pretty plain. Two reasons for that – 1. I figured with several letters in several patterns, embellishments might be a little much; 2. I never know what to embellish ‘boy’ letters with and I didn’t want Samuel’s to be nekkid in comparison.

Here’s a little more up close pic…for the first half of the letters, I just layered several primas on the A and topped it with a pink rhinestone.

For the second half, I tied some ribbons on the N….

I think they turned out pretty cute!  I’ll show you his letters as soon as I finish them.  Seriously though, I am going to need a separate suitcase just to take all this stuff out there when these babies are born!

  • These letters turned out adorable Emily! 🙂 I would love to do something like this for my boys room.

  • Mary Anne

    I know this is a wee bit after the fact, but I had to tell you I made your dip recipe and it was sooooooooooo yum! I’m in PA and could not find the Ro-Tel by name but I did find diced Tomatos with mild chilis and it worked out so well. Please feel free to share any of you other tasty quick tid bits! Have my daughter making it for poker night this week… I know she will love it!

    Thanks so much

    These are super cute! I love them. I’m actually doing some up for my sister who is about to give birth any one of these days. I can’t wait to give them to her. Thanks for sharing all the fabulous stuff you do!

  • Carolyn Baker

    I love the letters! Definitely a wonderful gift. I may have to invest in some of those letters for my sons.

    I hate to ask a dumb question, but what are the actual LETTERS made from? It looks like they are thicker than chipboard, but I cannot tell what they are made of. I would love to do something like this, looks GREAT! Will these hang on a wall, in a frame, or sit on a shelf?

  • Hi! These turned out great. When you said that you sanded the edges, what did you mean by that? And what did you use? I am brand new to do any kinds of crafts but I took this project on using your instructions. Thanks so much.
