Creations by AR - February Release DT Blog Hop - Baby Bag, Horse and Cradle

I'm excited to be participating in the Creations by AR February Design Team Baby Love Blog Hop - Adela has given us 3 wonderful baby templates this month - a cradle (one with slatted sides and one with solid sides, I used the slatted version today), a sweet rocking horse card and a delightful baby gift bag.  Here's a quick peek at all of them together.
And here they are individually close up.  After cutting all the cradle pieces out of pink cardstock with my Silhouette Cameo - I white embossed each piece with a wood grain stamp from Waltzingmouse .  I decorated the sides with some cute dimensional stickers from Jolee's Boutique.
Here's the other side
and here you can see the sweet heart cut out on the end pieces.  I embossed the heart pieces and used them on my horse and bag - see if you can spot them!
Here's a close up of the Rockin' Horse Card.  I used the same technique -  white embossing each piece with the woodgrain background stamp.
I layered the heart (from the cradle) onto the saddle - you almost can't see it in the picture!
And here is the wonderful Dress Up Baby Bag - I used more of the Jolee Dimensional stickers across the bodice of the dress - front and back.  I sponged all the edges with Ranger Distress Victorian Lace ink to give a little depth to the pieces. And see where I used another white embossed heart?!
Here's the other side:
And once again - here's the full group!
Here are the links to the templates in the Creations by AR shop.

Julia, your idea of using the hearts from the cradle and challenging us to find them is great. Adds a little punch to what is already a super hop. Thanks.
