The Baby Ensemble


Sigh. There's just something about tricycles that make me think of babies, and makes me smile so. I instantly fell in love with the nostalgic tricycle image from The Whole Cycle and the combination of the two sentiments within Chatterbox are a perfect match. Whimsical dots from For the Love of Dots (a previous release from Practicing Creativity Designs) were added to both elements for dimension, and the color scheme reinforces my take on nostagia-the ensemble takes on an aged, vintage vibe. I think it would be most fun to use pink or blue tissue to specify the gender.


The Whole Cycle and Chatterbox will be available tonight at midnight (August 5th) along with some fabulous fabric tapes that Courtney now carries at Practicing Creativity Designs! Thank you for taking this journey with me as I help to release these two fabulous sets, I hope you've had fun. Please take a minute to check out the blogs of Dana, Paulina and Courtney for more creative ideas using the new releases!

  3. Your tag just blew me away Karen. I love the soft, gentle feel it has, like a vintage baby book with those round-faced cherubs, you know? The addition of the metal is awesome!

  11. Great coloring job, love the dots too. What a great little tag- so nice that it's not over flowing w/ pink or blue! (even if you used pink or blue tissue, I like that the tag is neutral).
