Baby Girl Gift Made Easy

Well, we're winding down the November release for My Time Made Easy and I've got something pink and precious to share today. Be sure to also stop by and see Lauren, Catherine and Debbie M as they have some mojolicious eye candy for you as well.

Today I'm featuring the Carry It template which is just adorable. Many of the DT gals have already shown you how super, super cute this is as a gingerbread house - and I intend to make one myself when it's closer to the holidays BUT I wanted to put a different spin on it so I made a gift box for a baby girl.
I made this adorable little box/house to hold a little something for a sweet new baby girl. I work in a school district and have LOTS of opportunities to give just a little something to staff to welcome their new bundles of joy.  GinaK's pink paper from her spring collection made for the perfect base for my house. After I cut it and adhered the sides together I did all of my embossing with white embossing powder before I assembled it.  Here's the front of the house featuring stamps from the new Sugar and Spice set.

A look at the back of the house with the sweet family (complete with one little girl) stamped from the new Gingersnaps stamp set and the window from Sugar and Spice.

One of the sides showcasing the other window and some of the sweet candies from the Sugar and Spice set.
For the other side of the house I stamped and embossed the baby carriage and sentiments from Bringing Home Baby set.
I added the optional "roof" by cutting a piece of white SU! cardstock which I then embossed with my CB folder to make it look sort of like wood grain. I added a cut out stork (from Bringing Home Baby) arriving on the rooftop as my final accent piece then wrapped the whole box up with some ribbons and added tiny prima rose.

I didn't make a card for this gift set since I will write on the back of the tag and leave it on the teacher's desk. :-) I used the great new Trendy Tag cut file #1 (thanks Kristin!!) for this lovely little tag. I love that the layers are perfectly sized to nest - another sentiment and the hearts from Bringing Home Baby stamp set.

Stop back again tomorrow for the final showing of items for My Time Made Easy - the entire team will have ideas for you tomorrow.
