Crate Paper has a special delivery in store for you this week! The CP designers are leading the way with their very first bundle of lil' boy and girl projects created exclusively from our two adorable baby-themed collections, Little Boy Blue & Little Bo Peep. First to show is a "sweet-as-can-be" mini album from Kaori Watanabe - finally, an opportunity to see the album in it's entirety! Be prepared, it's seriously cute!
As a brand new mom, it's not always easy to find time to sit down and take on a large sized baby album. So instead, why not opt to go the mini album route? To get started, jot down the details that matter most from those first few days/weeks and then choose corresponding photos to go with them. Another option is to focus solely on a special moment like the birth date, baby room, bringing baby home, etc.
CP Designer :: Claudia Shadler
Baby showers provide all kinds of opportunities to be creative - Claudia Shadler's taken Crate's new "Oliver" patterned paper and turned it into a box of shower favors. Each has a sweet candy treat, Lil' Boy Blue wood veneer cut-out and a soft blue pin. House them near the front entrance for all to see! Your guests won't want to miss them!
Looking to give a gift to a soon-to-be mom? Lilith Eckles crafted a door handle piece as a decorative accent to either hang up, or set on top a shelf in the baby's room. Note the new Crate Paper Lullaby Thickers she's used for the title - Crate finally has their very own thickers!! Yeah!
Yes, we've already shown these to you before, but not the actual "card images". Crate's card expert, Anabelle O'Malley, volunteered to make a series of baby cards and they're simply adorable. We just love them, especially the lil' boy chipboard duck with the with the ribbon. Such a perfect combination!
CP Designer :: Shanna Noel
Little Boy Blue isn't just for the little ones! The collection itself is extremely versatile in that not all it's patterns papers and embellishments are baby themed. Shanna Noel's demonstrates this with her latest layout, celebrating motherhood. So, even if you're not in the market for a baby collection, we still welcome you to enjoy the new releases!
And last, a Apple for my Eye layout from Michiko Kato. Sometimes, working on a traditional baby layout is the best way to sit down, take a break, and reflect upon the good times we share with our kids. Time goes by so quickly - we just have to capture and enjoy what's available to us, including our lil' ones.
Thank-you to our talented team of CP Girls for the awesome contributions today! Tomorrow, we're going to switch collections and honor the precious baby girls out there via Little Bo Peep! Do join us! Have a great Tuesday everyone!
