Bring on the Crate Paper!

Today at Practical Scrappers we are featuring my favorite manufacturer, Crate Paper. I became a huge fan when I first saw their "Snow Day" Collection in an LSS in November and couldn't believe I'd never heard of them before (small town, not a lot of choice). I picked it up, created a cute little snow globe card with it, and submitted it for their Customer Appreciation Week. Well, some how I managed to win a huge prize package that had like 12 different lines in it (the box weighed 16 pounds) and I haven't stopped creating with Crate Paper yet (and I won't be after seeing the fall preview of their three new lines, Farmhouse, Random, and Peppermint).

In the meantime, here's what I did with my Little Sprout Collection for a very dear friend of mine, who's baby shower I just went to over the 4th. She's due in September, but shooting for August:) She's promised me that she's not changing his name either (otherwise she get to send the frame back me to fix). I've got lots of pictures of this one to try and share the hole thing...

Altered Frame

Mini Album I'm calling a Milestone album. This is 6 altered 5x7 card envelopes put together. I created tabbed cards to pull out for each baby milestone plus a journaling card for each month.
