Nursery Decor with Rachel McAffee Using Summer Stories

Hello, everyone! 
Rachel here to share with you a couple sweet nursery decor projects using the Summer Stories collection. My sister recently had a beautiful baby girl and I wanted to give her some handmade decor pieces for the nursery.  I fell in love with the soft blues, grays and cotton candy pinks in this line; they also happen to match the new baby's nursery perfectly! 

The first project is a wall hang using a chipboard back board that I painted  ivory. I  layered different patterns and colors of paper from the Summer Stories collection. I attached a vintage photo of a baby and made a little banner using die cuts, buttons and twine.  Using the "flashcards" sheet of paper, I cut out the word "baby" and adhered it to the bottom of the panel using pop dots.

Here's a little pillow I made out of muslin and then embellished with a die cut and button banner.  I also stitched "xox" in the upper corner using light blue thread.  I used fabric glue to adhere the floppy blossom ribbon down the side of the pillow. 

I'm sure you're LOVING this new collection as much as I am!

 Thanks so much for stopping by and have a great day!
