Week 2: Tina Gilliland

Today Tina mixes it up: "Sporty Accessories" and "Wee Tees"

This card is actually a birth announcement, the front has a very clean and simple design with the onesie, a nice little baseball background and "It's a boy" from "Just So Sporty". I love the summery, patriotic colors and elements she used (my older son has a July 1 birthday, so we've had quote a few red, white and blue parties here!) ;) Cardstock and ribbon from the Stamp TV kit "Eclectic Summer", DP is the free "Stars and Stripes" digital paper.
Now look inside!

Don't you LOVE that bat design for each line item?? (and it keeps your handwriting straight LOL!) The lbs and ounces, my mommy and Daddy and world's cutest are all from "Wee Tees", the meagphone is such a fun way to way to make this very important announcement at the top!
You could easily adapt this design using the club or hockey stick, as well as making this into a party invitation instead (all the words you need for your invite details can be found in "Jumping for Joy". Hope this inspires, I know it did me! (off to make some invitations, the birthday's just a few weeks away!! ;)
Tina has another sample for us today, let's go see! :)
PS Would you like to guest design for me one day? I spend a lot of time browsing the gallery at Stamp TV for my next designers, uploading your creations there with my stamps will definitely show me your point of view and interest! ;)
