Each spot on the tray is a perfect place to add just a touch of paper, buttons, ribbon, pins, flowers, etc.  Here are some ideas that Amber has done, feel free to add your own touches with photos, maybe a baby footprint or a lock of hair.

 Top Right:11200898_434789030026317_2559239298077717283_nThe mix and match pad gives you a wide range of papers, fabric, printed fabric and more to choose from, making it easy to create little touches such as the flower and frayed bow in this section.  Cut out pieces from the sampler or all over print and color them in with watercolor or glimmer mist paints for a great hand-painted look.  There are plenty of words, sayings and letters to say what you want to say to the little one.

Top Right:
You can stamp onto the tags and bank spaces you will find on the sampler – the combo of black and pink stamping looks great together.
Bottom Right:
Leave some of the boxes with simple little details while others you can add a bunch of flowers or a real baby pin.
So if you are expecting or know someone who is, this is the perfect inspiration to make them a handmade gift for the baby shower.  Leave one or two open for photos when the time comes and they can slip them right in.
Here is a beautiful companion gift you can give with your tray featuring Canvas Corp’s new Printed Canvas Panel.
What you will need:
The Sugar and Spice Mix and Match Pad is so versatile, while it worked great to make the tray above, it is  just perfect for this mini book.  16 different papers, fabrics and prints give you lots to choose from.
