We had our design team h
ere at OMC put together the project for the Let's Kit Together Baby Girl pack to show you just how cute these projects can be!

First we have some precious layouts!

And how about a card for that upcoming baby shower?

Of course if you are having a baby shower you're going to need invitations...

And then how about a door hanger for when baby is sleeping?


And last but not least, an adorable baby booklet to keep all those memories close at hand!

There are so many possibilities with these kits! You can follow the instructions or create your own projects. Each Let's Kit Together pack comes with instructions for multiple projects so you'll never run out of cute ideas. Better yet, you can reuse the instructions with other paper pack and embellishments!

Use the acid-free craft tape along the bottom of diagonal section and glue together. Ink edges with matching color.
4. Trim a 1" or 1½" piece of contrasting paper for the belly-band. Fold around entire card with the ends matching in the middle on the top with a 1" overlap.

Melissa said...

"I received my degree 2 weeks ago at the age of 45. I did it while raising a family and going back full time after being laid off from a part time job. While doing this I was on the deans list every semester and was a member of Phi Thetta Kappa. I am now a very proud mom who has a college degree. While going back this last year my youngest daughter has been struggling in high school. She finally managed to bring all her grades up and as I was telling her I was proud of her she said "mom I'm proud of you too!" We did a high 5 to each other."

Congrats Melissa! Please send your shipping information to to claim your prize.

Fancy Pants : Lilac House

Lifestyle Crafts : Fresh Start Cutting Dies- Bloom
Clearsnap : Colorbox Classic Pigment Ink-Boysenberry
Tulle - Brown
Bazzill Basics : Jewels - Clear


1. Cut Lilac House patterned paper 9 ¾”x 5 ¾”. 
2. With Footlights Punch, punch lilac patterned paper 5 ¾”x2”. Adhere ½” from the bottom. 
3. With Footlights Punch, punch white paper 5 ¾”x 5”. Adhere just above the lilac paper, leaving a thin strip of patterned paper showing at the top.  
4. Ink the edges with Boysenberry ink pad. 
5. Die cut 8 white small flowers, but layer one on top of the other to create four flowers. Apply a small jewel in the center of each flower and adhere to the bottom of the scalloped white paper.

Tip: With thin paper, the die cut can cut through 3 sheets at a time.

6. Cut out “Wish” from paper pack and ink the edges with Boysenberry ink pad. Apply the purple border rub on to the bottom of the sentiment. Adhere to left side of page.


7. On right side of card, apply the blue border rub on.  
8. Adhere a line of jewels to the left of the sentiment and on both sides of the blue rub on.  
9. Finish with brown tulle tied in a bow at the top of the card.


Supplies Used:

Fancy Pants: Lilac House
Bazzill Basics : 12”x24” Cardstock
Spellbinders : Nestabilities - Wonky Rectangle
Imaginisce : I-top brad
Tattered Angels : Glimmer Mist - Pearl
Lifestyle Crafts : Fresh Start Cutting Dies- Bloom

3. Die cut several layers of the Lifestyle Crafts flower cutting die with white paper. This flower has 6 layers of petals.

Tip: The petals curl upward because I sprayed them on both sides with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist color Pearl. This gave them the flexibility to curl on their own. You can also shape them how you want with a pencil or your fingers.  

4. With I-top, create a 16mm brad using coordinating lilac paper. Punch a hole with Tim Holtz Retractable Craft Pick through the center of each flower and stick the brad through the center.  
5. Adhere the flower to the center of the box, slightly over the rectangles.

Supplies Used:

Rangers Ink : Jenni Bowlin Acrylic Paint Dabbers - Fountain Pen and coordinating color  
Oh My Vinyl : Metallic Silver, Black and Transfer Tape
Kanban Crafts : Duo Mirror Reflective - Copper/Black
Cricut : Happy Graduation, Songbird, and Base Camp Cartridges
7Gypsies : Display Trim: Loops and Hooks - Antique Silver
Graduate’s Tassel


1. Remove the glass from the frame.
2. Paint the frame with Ranger Ink paint dabbers and let dry. Paint the entire frame black, or paint the sides the color of the graduate’s tassel or school colors.

Tip: Ranger Ink Paint Dabbers dry super fast and are quick and easy to apply.


3. With Cricut machine, cut out the following:
Words to Cut
 Size in Inches
Blade Depth
Happy Graduation
Metallic Silver Vinyl
"Happy Graduation"
3 1/2
Metallic Silver Vinyl
"Class Of"
1 1/2
Base Camp
Metallic Silver Vinyl
"2011" Shadow
1 3/4
Base Camp
Black Vinyl
1 3/4
Happy Graduation
Kanban Reflective Paper- Black
Graduation  Cap
3 1/2

4. With “Happy Graduation” cut off the “Happy” so you are left with “Graduation.” Do not forget to cut off the dot to the “i.” 
5. Using transfer tape, apply the vinyl to the frame. Start with “2011,” laying one number down at a time. Then stick “Graduation” down at the bottom, bringing it close to, but not touching the “1”. Lastly, apply “Class Of.” Since these letters are not welded together, apply each one separately, but overlap them slightly so they are close together and they look welded. 
6. Ink the white edges of the graduation cap black and adhere to the top left corner of the frame. 
7. Adhere one antique silver 7 Gypsies hook onto the graduation cap and tie the graduate’s tassel on. 
8. Insert the glass and graduate’s picture in the frame for a perfect graduation gift!

Happy crafting!
