Sneak Peeks From Our Favorite Brands

Last week I was able to go to a little trade show, right here in Salt Lake City. I have been in and around the crafting world for over a decade and this is the first time I was able to attend a show without boarding an airplane first. This was a small show and closed to the public, so I thought I would show a little of what I was able to see from some of our favorite brands. (Please excuse some of my iPhone photos)

Carta Bella Baby Mine | Monday Craft Madness #12

When I first saw Carta Bella’s Baby Mine Collections a couple of months ago at the Craft and Hobby show, I was kind of sad I didn’t have babies anymore. This is one of the best baby collections I have seen in a while. I wanted to use this collection so badly. Luckily we have many mommies in the office who offer me baby pictures on a regular basis. So today for Monday Craft Madness I made this display piece….. So today’s two  themes are:

Display & Babies

Create one or the other or both. Something you can put on display, or some favorite papercrafting display piece. Create something about a baby, for a baby or for someone with a baby. Here’s what I created:


I used a 7 Gypsies Printer’s Tray to create the display piece. All of the colors and patterns of the papers are perfect for little boys.

The 12-inch border sticker was perfect to add a little scallop border to the top of the display piece. The mix of chipboard stickers, decorative brads and cardstock stickers helped to create a fun display piece for little Zach. Check out a few more close ups:

I love to use these trays to create depth. Adding papers inside and on top of the square slots.

Yes you may see tons of pop dots under there! :)

I seriously can’t handle how cute those toes are!
