Becky's Sweet Creations Boy/Girl Blog Hop - Day 2

Welcome to Day 2 of Becky's Sweet Creations 2 Day Boy/Girl Blog Hop! This weekend we're going to be sharing with you a variety of boy and girl-themed projects that our design team has created. This is our first hop as a design team, and we're so excited to have you with us. Thanks so much for joining us! :)

If you came from Becky's blog then you're in the right place! If you're new to the hop and would like to start at the beginning, you can also visit Becky's blog since hers is the first in the lineup. :)

Here's the complete lineup in case you get lost along the way: 

Ashley @ Made Especially For You     <---------- You are here

Lisa @ Lisa's Creative Niche

Laura @ Laura's Crafts and More 

Since yesterday's project was girl-themed, today's is boy-themed! I created another pop-up card to share with you, and I'm definitely a lot more pleased with this one than the one I posted yesterday! I hope you like it, too. :) I'll be honest and say that I didn't completely come up with the idea for this card, but I did tweak the original design to make it more of my own. 

This is a close-up of the card, I just love it! If I had the time I would've made a girl version to go along with it, but unfortunately time just didn't allow for it this week. The posts to the laundry line are the pop-ups in this card. The grass, posts and baby clothes were all templates that I found, but the flowers are handmade and I did the embossing and glittering on the grass myself. 

Here's a "long distance" shot of the card. 

What fun would a blog hop be without blog candy?! :) I had so much fun searching through my stash 
looking for boy/girl-themed goodies to giveaway. Luckily I found more than I thought I would! :)

- 12 sheets of 6x6 "boy" themed patterned paper
- Assorted brads in pastel colors
- 'baby' glittered chipboard letters in blue and pink
- Assorted punches
- Assorted chipboard embellishments in pastel colors (perfect for both cards and scrapbooking!)

Here's what you have to do to enter:

1.) Become a follower (if you aren't already)
2.) Comment on a post on either day of the hop (you'll be entered a second time if you comment both days)
