Baby Blocks

A cute DIY craft for a baby gift, decor for a baby room ... so many options.  Alice Golden made these adorable baby girl blocks.  It would be so easy to swap out the pink cards and embellishments for blue.  You can even stick with green or yellow if you don't know the gender of the baby.  

Jumbo Sticker Scrapbook Page

Our design team got a sneak peek at the JUMBO stickers and Laurie Danielle made this adorable page with the glitter, "you make me so happy" sticker.  She also added some other mambi goodies to spice it up but isn't it adorable?  I love the way she did journaling on the bottom, it blends in a little so it's not too abrasive and doesn't take your eye away from the awesome page.  

See all the new JUMBO sticker designs HERE and in stores at Michaels!  

Laurie used it on a page but there are so many more ways to use it, check back ... more to come!  Stay crafty my friends!

Welcome Home Baby Banner

Amanda Johnson made an adorable Welcome Home Baby Girl Banner.  Simply adorable to put in a little sweet baby's room!  She used two ribbon spools for the sides and connected them with mambi Baby Girl paper and used embellishments (listed below) to finish it up.  Such a sweet idea Amanda!

Baby Girl POCKET PAGES Layout

A great POCKET PAGES™ layout by our mambi design team member, Stephanie Buice.  I love how she used POCKET PAGES on a regular scrapbook layout.  She used the BABY GIRL POCKET PAGES cards and a Precious Baby soft spoken™.  Adorable page and just love the color combos!  

Here is a closer look at this great layout ...

Paper Room Decor - Letters

Ever see decorated letters in rooms?  You can do that!  It's easy!  

Loved the colors of the summer mambi paper pad and thought I would use those colors as the color theme for my nieces' room.  The bright cheery colors are perfect!

The first thing I did was pick out the papers I wanted to use for each letter.  Nicole needed 6 sheets.  I laid out the letters and made marks on the sheets leaving extra room on all sides.  I then cut on the marks making each sheet fit each letter with room to spare.  

After all the sheets are cut to roughly the size of the letters, I fed them through a Xyron machine.  (If you don't have a Xyron you can also use decoupage or even roller adhesive)  

I laid down the paper, sticky side up, and laid the letter down on the paper.  Make sure you place the good side of the letters down.  Once all the letters have been placed on top of their papers you can put them on a craft matt and use an exacto knife to go around the edges.  I keep making cuts and pulling away the excess, it makes it easier for me to see what I'm doing.  

After you get all the areas removed you can turn it over and have awesome decorated letters. 

Use sandpaper to smooth out any rough areas or snags in the paper.  Be sure to save scraps to make other things.  I'm thinking of making a paper mobile out of the scraps since I have so much left over.  

Next I added some coordinating SOFT SPOKEN™ embellishments for 3D effect.  

Hang the letters on the wall and voila!
