A sweet girl is six - project co-ordination love!

My delightful niece turned six last week and as I have been committed to trying in recent times, I included a handmade component with her gift.

Enter MDS (what else?!) and my trusty iron on transfer paper and with a colour palette dictated by the Fresh Prints Designer Series Paper on the co-ordinating card, plus an adorable image from the My Digital Studio Nursery Alphabet Images Stamp Brush Setand I had a super sweet custom made t-shirt to tuck in with her gift...

The addition of the sweet six year old adds up to almost too much cuteness...

For the card, I pretty much busted out a bit of everything from the current Occasions Catalogue...

My favourite thing about Stampin' Up! is - and has always been - the co-ordination of colours across their product offering.  

Matching colours in cardstock, ink and embellishments?!

Yes please!

Goodbye rocket science, hello effortless project co-ordination.

Your turn - what's your favourite thing?!
