Hi, Everyone! The Carta Bella Toy Box collection not only takes me back to the days when I was younger, but also when my kids were younger. I giggled when I saw the Magic Toy Room paper because it reminded me exactly how my son’s room looked when he was a little boy.
Today I used this collection to document my son’s 12th birthday. The Toy Banner paper
was so much fun to fussy-cut and use as a decorative element across my page.
I popped the banner pieces up on foam squares to give the page some depth and then added several of the chipboard pieces and gem brads from the Decorative Brads set
for even more texture.
I even added a banner across my journaling block.
At the top of the page, I added a chipboard phrase
and then embellished it with the Decorative Brads
. The large chipboard circle accent is adhered to a red button. I love the way this looks! It’s such a fun way to frame out those chipboard circle pieces!
I did the same thing with another red button at the bottom of the page.
I love the way this one came together. The Toy Box collection
was perfect for documenting these birthday photos! I think I will use it again to scrapbook my son blowing out the candles on the cake!

Have a great day!
Keep your little one entertained with this fun activity set! I created a paper backpack with the Carta Bella Toy Box Collection filled with notepads and crayons that I think would make the perfect gift for a toddler. There is even enough room in the backpack to add a snack!
I cut the base of the backpack from the Magic Toy Room paper
with it’s darling blue plaid pattern. On the flap I added a decorative panel with the toy guns, and then created a tag to hang on the handle.
Inside, your toddler will find a pack of crayons and a few notebooks. I think it would be fun to add some fish crackers or a few chocolate chip cookies in there, too!
The back of the bag even has straps and paper buckles!
This gift is sure to make any child smile!

I cut the knight from the 4×6 Journaling Cards paper
to decorate the front of the book, along with a mini paper fan, ephemera die cuts, die cuts, stickers, and a dragon from the Enamel Shapes.
The spine is decorated, too!
Now your little prince’s trinkets will be kept safe in his new secret hiding spot. Enjoy!
