Special Delivery Shadow Box

I have always wanted to make shadow boxes for my kids from when they were born. I got the perfect chance to start with the latest challenge at Peachy Keen Stamps Challenge Blog

The challenge was to create a layout for a shadowbox, so I chose to do one for my middle son Drew. I used my Peachy Keen Stamps "Critter Faces Set A Medium" stamp set. I totally love these stamps. If any of you have the Create a Critter or Animal Kingdom Cricut cartridge, you should definitely look into getting a set. The images on the cartridges are cute already, but adding the faces just gives it even more cuteness (is that a word?)

I used the Create a Critter cartridge for all three animals and the title. I used Plantin' Schoolbook for the grass.

I added Drew's first pair of shoes! Sooooo cute - I can't believe his feet were ever that small! I even found the identification label for his hospital bassinet. Notice, they used a girl one and crossed out the word "GIRL" and wrote "BOY" - must have been a lot of boys born at that time, they ran out of boys cards.

Well, I love how this turned out, so I will be creating a similar project for each of my other two babies! Hope you like this one, thanks for stopping by!


  1. Oh my word...This is ADORABLE and couldn't be more perfect!!! It is amazing how quickly they grow. My girls just turned one this week and I can't believe how fast time has flown by. I think how you added the shoes was a perfect way to remind you how precious babies are...that and sooo TINY!
    Can't wait to see what else you create. Hope to see more of your work in the future over at Peachy Keen Stamps.
