May CCDT Blog Hop: Rock-A-Bye! + Giveaway

Hello Friends!

Welcome to the May CCDT Blog hop! This month's theme is Rock-A-Bye!


I have been wanting to do a 3D rocking crib for awhile now, and what a great opportunity for the month of May.

The crib does rock if you have equal weight balance but because I was filling with various items in the crib, I cut the bottom off to make it straight and to hold more goodies inside.

This was created for a gal at work who loves my work, and one of my best customers who continuous to buy cards from me. 

The 3D crib holds this cute baby bottle card, and a mini scrapbook of the word "BABY" below.

I created another use of this 3D crib with our Succulent Framelits Dies (142757) and the Detailed Dragonfly Thinlits Dies (142749) for my own purposes.

The succulent flowers were die cut in various shades of card stocks and shade each of them differently.

I want to show you a different look, especially for those who does not have upcoming babies, why not give a gift to a gardener?

The crib can hold many packages of seeds or use the crib as a succulent bed for household display.


The bed is propped with a Styrofoam block and covered with Spanish Moss purchased at Michael's Craft Store.

Then I die cut all the different layers of flowers and arranged them. I also added a succulent umbrella to the crib with the dragonfly on top. 

ACT NOW ... enter a comment below and a chance to win this file (3D Rocking Crib, Baby Bottle Card and the BABY mini album) upon my return from Cuba. Yes, as you are reading this post, I am in Cuba for another week. A winner will be announced on May 15.
