To Emri Grace, with Love


Hello and WELCOME to the Team KNK designers blog! I’m so thankful that you’re here! You are so very special!

Today’s project is a memories of ‘love’ book for the parents of a new baby girl.  The title of the book is, “To Emri Grace, with love.”The parents will place a photo of their little one inside the front  picture frame plus write little ‘love notes’ to their precious Emri Grace for her to cherish for years to come. It can be a journal entry of –‘precious one, your smile made my heart sing today’–or–‘You are so strong–you stood on your own today!’………making sure to date each entry.

Primary materials  used:

KNK Zing

Make the Cut Software

KNK Zing thick cut blade


spiral notebook (this one is considered to be 5X7)

card stock and cereal box

various ribbon scraps


Xyron Sticker Maker machine

We r Memory Keepers Big bite



straight pin


Today’s project may appear to be more on the advanced side of the spectrum, but with all sincerity, that’s what crafting with the over the top Zing is all about!  Your projects are sure to have the look as if you are a professional.

This is the first time I’ve used my awesome Zing to cut cereal box—can you say ‘one pass’??  I am definitely impressed!!

Thank you for dropping by, we’d love to hear from you plus see what our posts have inspired you to create! Until next time:  HUGE {{{HUGS}}} and be blessed

~Beyond Measure


PS~  Make sure to place a little scrap of paper/card stock in between the ‘frame backing’ and the bottom layer of cereal box so that it leaves an opening to slide your photo inside:)

About bartlettpair

Born and raised in Texas to two really awesome parents, the Lord decided it was time for my immediate family and I to "head 'em up and move 'em out!" to beautiful Wyoming. ~ Oh give me a home---where the buffalo roam---and the deer and the antelope play! That was almost 12 years ago. My studmuffin sweetheart and I have been married for 23 uber awesome years:) Our over the top son is 22 and our amazing daughter is 19. I so enjoy creating of all sorts---but over the past few years, I've developed such a love/passion/heart for creating (paper/metal/vinyl crafting --primarily cards) to bless others.

 To the glory of our Lord Jesus, I am so very thankful, humbled, and honored to say that I am blessed Beyond Measure and I want that for you, too.

  1. Delightful! I’ve always had a fondness for shabby chic – but, alas, I do not have skills like yours though. I’m better at the just plain vintage. I love your album!

  2. Beautiful project. Looking forward to having time to watch the video. They are always so great. TFS.

  3. Love it! Love it! Love it! It’s so sweet and girly! Thanks for showing us!

  4. So beautiful! I don’t have a Zing yet, but you are inspiring me to try cutting ceareal boxes to make a project like this.
    Thank you.

  5. Stunning! I always admire shabby chic creations, but for some reason my mind’s creativity stops short of being a natural at creating anything shabby chic. You did a great job. I’m sure it will be treasured.

  6. Beautiful! I haven’t tried cereal boxes yet on my Zing, but I hope to in the near future. Thanks for sharing.

  7. This is very beautiful and I have a niece that just had a baby and she named her Emri Grace – I have a feeling in my heart that you made this for her.
