PTI anniversary, day 1.

I don't usually post on Sundays, and I was even reasoning with myself that I have a lot on my creative plate - what with making all of the decor for my little sister's upcoming baby shower - so I might not be able to post much to the old blog this week.... pfffffft!

That was before I remembered it's:


And they started out their celebrations with the offer of a SWEET prize.  All you have to do is create a project inspired by one of their designer's favorite PTI creations and link it up *here.*

Being in the midst of creating all things baby girl-related, I couldn't help using Melissa's onesie card as my jumping-off point:


(and, as a bonus, her top 5 favorite PTI products).

Here's my take:


I just finished creating those fabric-wrapped-styrofoam-balls last night... perfect for a baby-shower centerpiece, don't you think?  And I love how the onesie card compliments it so well.  I might have to incorporate it all as our centerpiece...

I stamped the pink onesie base with a versamark-layer of "polka-dot basics II", and then the florals and dots from "harvest berries" over-top in fresh snow ink.

The stork is from "bundle of love," and I stamped him off to the side to make room for the grey-tissue-paper hearts.  I sewed a stack of them in place with my sewing machine, so that I could fluff them up a bit.  A pop of whimsical texture...


The sentiment, from "baby button bits," was curved to fit around the oval shape.

Hope you like it!  I guess you'll be seeing alot of PTI on the blog this week ;)

  1. Wow how awesome is this card? Way too adorable! Great idea to stamp with Polka Dot in versamark first then the Harvest Berries over with Fresh Snow. Gives a lot of depth to the pattern. Will definitely give this a try someday!

  6. You are right, our interpretations of Melissa's card are so different. I really love yours. The Harvest Berries background and how you've only used the top portion of the stork is brilliant! Now I'm drooling over yours :)

  18. K, I just browsed your blog a bit because the "You might also like..." pointed me in the direction of your ballerina party. I left a comment on your wreaths, but I suspect you may never see it... everything you did was AMAZING!!! I am planning a ballerina party for my daughter's 4th birthday in August... it will be family mainly, and likely the only kids there will be my own - but I LOVE your idea of having a real ballerina there!! Emma would *love* that, but I don't think it's really the right thing this year - I sort of wish she wanted this party when she was older, because there are so many cute ideas for a group of little girls. I love everything you shared, it was beautiful!!

    Your blog is lovely... I can't wait to spend more time browsing when I have a minute to relax with the computer!!
