Hi Everyone, Piradee here to share one of my latest Crate 365 spreads. This time around, I wanted to address a little something different than the usual weekly update. Lately, I've been baby "buying up a storm" as I get ready for the little one and honestly, I some how lost track of what I've bought, haven't bought and/or should have bought. LOL.
So, this spread is dedicated to all things baby! Starting with the cute little lamb that's been on my wish list for a while now and the playmat that I finally splurged on (I know that I won't need it right away, but couldn't resist how cute it is). Also, in putting together this spread, I mixed items from various collections (Party Day, Maggie Holmes and DIY Shop) and most of the embellishments are from either the DIY Shop or The Pier collections (along with a few must use items: glitter tape).
In addition, I got out my Cameo for detailing, which allowed me to create the perfect contrast (using mist) against the pattern papers that I had chosen from the various collections. For some reason, I always focus on 3-4 colors at a time - I find that's it's easy to mix and match them among the pages. Do you also focus on only a few colors at a time?
Now lately, I haven't been able to complete a project without using at least one of those polaroid chipboard frames from The Pier collection. I can't wait for the new set from the latest CHA release. These are a definite must have item and are great for layering and creating dimension. Also, for one of the cards, I opted to repeat the pattern from the first page to have some consistency among the pages (and just love that "today" pattern paper).
On the back side of the page are a few more pictures of some of the goodies that I purchased thus far (actually, there's quite a few more stuffed animals- lots more!); hubby asked me whether they were for me or the baby - uhmmmm.
And to help me keep track of things, I decided to list out some of the items that I had purchased; yeap, I have definitely gone overboard! Everything is just too cute!! Can't wait to create another spread like this next month. It's surely going to be interesting to see the difference and also, will be another great addition to break up my weekly spreads.
Thanks for stopping by - hope you have a great weekend!
