Hello there, Maja Fans!
I’m so happy you’ve visited the blog today 🙂 I have a sweet welcome baby boy set I made using our beautiful Vintage Baby collection, combining the 12×12 papers and the small pad. The set consists of a photo frame and a matching card.
I selected some blue and beige designs from the collection to fit a boy frame:
I trimmed the papers and layered them and then fixed to a piece of cardboard. I cut out label shapes and made them into tags, I also die-cut sweet stars and decorated the top star with a button:
I made a pocket to fit a 9×13 cm photo by choosing one of the journaling cards, cutting out the central bracket label and matting it with a trimmed piece of paper, mounted on flat 3D dots so that the photo slides in more easily:
I love it when signature strips offer some additional designs you can use to decorate your projects! Here I cut off a piece to add to my “star-flag” 🙂
One of the signature strips from large sheets is included in the designs of the small pad 🙂 I used it under the photo pocket:
I also made a custom topper by sticking a round epoxy upon a postamp image of a baby and then cut it out. I matted the sticker with another circle and mounted upon a kraft die-cut star:
Then, using some left-over scraps and similar elements, I made a congratulation card:
And finally I put the photo frame into a shadow-box frame and the set is ready to be presented – as soon as the little prince decides to arrive 🙂
I really like the way the set turned out – and I’m really proud of myself as I managed not to use even a single flower! 😀

It’s adorable. All I can say is we welcomed our Little Prince..my first grandson.. 2 weeks ago and I just love the idea of the Little Prince theme.. that is what we used for the Baby Shower.. So precious.. Love your inspiration. If only I could get the papers locally. It’s hard to find them in the US.
