Shabby Chic Baptism Keepsake With Vintage Baby

Hello Maja Fans! Welcome to the blog today 🙂

It’s Maja here to share a girly Baptism keepsake in the shabby chic style. I used our latest release, the Vintage Baby collection, to make it:

mdbapgI used the form of a faux book card – can you believe I’ve never used that form before? 🙂 But I like to make keepsakes of special moments look special too, so I decided to give it a try. I combined large sheets with the small pad designs – here I fussy-cut the baby girl page for the front panel:

mdbapg1I mounted the chipboard sentiment on a die-cut doily matted with a piece of cheesecloth for a more shabby look. I also added a pearl brad and beautiful guipure lace to tie the “book”:

mdbapg2And when you untie it…

mdbapg7…it opens up to reveal a dimensional inside with some space to write in your wishes:

mdbapg3To make the writing more comfortable, I decided to make a little pocket with an insert – which then may serve as a store place for a CD with the celebration photos 🙂

mdbapg4In the faux-book section I arranged a little scene, with the baby girl image coloured with Distress inks and the stamp with the christening formula: I baptize you in the name of the Father..:

mdbapg5To create this lovely frame, I cut some decorative lace inot pieces and arranged them around the opening:


Maja Design papers: Vintage Baby large sheets: Cherish bs, Our little miracle, Precious, Precious bs, small pad sheets. Other: die: Cheery Lynn Designs, Magnolia; stamps: Magnolia, Lemonade; flowers: the ScrapBerry’s; chipboard: Scrapiniec; glitter: Ranger; lace and ribbon: my stash.

I hope you have a wonderful day 🙂
