Non Traditional Baby Gift Tag

Have been looking for a baby set for years.  I'm just not a fan of rattles and bottles, etc.  Finally, I found an Avery Elle set -- Storybook -- that I really love.  It can be used for more than babies, which was essential to make the purchase worthy, and is just darling. 

Paired with with Lawn Fawn's Harold's ABCs.  Such a great alphabet set.  Love being able to personalize the gift tag.  

Colored the tag with Copics and paper pieced the duck, which hangs off the tag just a bit.  Stickles on the butterflies. 

MOOD WHEN DONE = Delighted


  1. super sweet! Thanks for the inspiration as I've had that AE set and haven't inked it up!

  2. I always love to read that last part of your post... ;)
    Love your personalised tag!

  3. Adorable! Love your coloring, Joan. Inspires me to practice more.... :)

  4. I really, REALLY hope this isn't a double comment. My stupid computer is testing my patience!!

    I'm not one for baby bottles and rattles either. I like the idea of a story book stamp set!! Besides, how can one go wrong with a story book?!!

    I have been on a hiatus from blogs lately. I just wanted to let you know I enjoyed visiting and catching up!!

  5. This is just darling. I am so glad that I bought this story book set, and thankful for your beautiful inspiration to ink it up already. Great touch to have the duck just a tad over the edge of the paper. I also like that you used bold colors--also non-traditional for a baby, and really works well.

    1. thanks. I love bold colors for baby gifts.

  6. What a sweet tag. I love the story-book theme rather than the rattles and bows! I especially like the name in that cute font.

  7. Very cute for a baby gift tag or card! The versatility is great, considering your preferences and working with limited supplies. Plus, it's just darn adorable!

  8. I think it is adorable! I do get tired of all the soft pastels for babies, they like bright colors too!
