Name frame...twins


Ok so as you read a few weeks ago when you saw Jordan's name frame we had a little baby boom. All of these births were super exciting and joyful times. I was so happy for my cousins as they each welcomed new babies into their lives. I was doubly excited for the last announcment and she was having TWINS now we always joked about having twins in my family as my aunt who is a geneoligist told us how twins showed up here and there in the family but none of us ever had any...until now. A perfect set - one boy and one girl. They are just the sweetest little babies. When I got to hold both of them together it made me thankful that I only had one at a time.

I was really trying to think of what paper I could use for twins who share a room for my cousin who has always been a tom boy. Do I want them to match do I want them separate...I dicided to coordinate using a paper pack that is fun for kids and can be for a boy or a girl. Animal Cookies! Many years ago I entered the wrong code and ended up with a second set of this paper. I thought about getting rid of it but figured I would just keep it. Well I am SO glad I did cause it is just perfect for this project. See it isn't so bad to hoard your supplies for that some day...some day happened to me!

Here they are together



 
I wanted to make them coordinate but not be the same. I used a few different papers and My Stickease for each frame. First up the little boy frame.




 


 
Next up the little girls frame. I added a banner to this one. I just love to use banners. I hope this trend sticks around next year.



Here they are all finished together. She loved them. I loved them. I cannot wait to make more of them! Such a great fun gift that can be personalized. My daughter who is getting married later this year informed me that I will need to make her some when she decides to start having babies.

You can see the other name frames here Jordan, Eli, Maizie.

Name Frame: Eli

Time for another name from. Last week you saw Jordan and you can see my original one Maizie. This one is for my cousins little grandson Eli he had a short name so I had to get a little creative on how I wanted to do it.
 
Funny sidenote. As I was trying to decide how and what to do and what paper I wanted to use. I accidently sent the message to my cousin instead of my friend! Ack...I told her to disregard as that was for a suprise...lucky for me she still had no clue. Now I try and double check who I am sending stuff too.
 
This superhero paper was my favorite paper pack for a while just because it was so different. I don't even have boys but I knew I had to have it! I never did make a scrapbook page with it. I made several cards and a really cool wreath for the 4th of July. I was digging and digging and digging some more and found a sampler pack. I was so happy because I thought it would just be perfect for little Eli.

I made another Name Frame: Jordan

We had a slight baby boom in the family this year. I have a lot of cousins and three of them who happen to be sisters all had babies appear in their life over the past year or so. I decided to make some name frames for them. I will do three separate posts and will start out with the oldest and work my way through them.

I just adore these name frames and made one a while back for my daughter.

Jordan is the oldest of the babies I decided to go with a space theme for him. I had a super cute paper pack from way back when called Stardust. I also had the coordinating My Stickease and little embellishment that had a rubber feel to them. I also added some bling.
