Beautiful Moments by Carta Bella Paper




















{Reported by Ashley Harris}




I don't know about you, but I was pretty darn excited when Echo Park Paper announced a sister company named Carta Bella Paper.  I mean Echo Park Paper has to really try hard to create something I  DON'T like.  All I could think was, "This is going to be GREAT!!"   Their first collection, Beautiful Moments, has a soft floral motif and has a good mix of colors to it.  It veers mainly to the feminine side of things.   So let's get to it.


What I liked:
-The paper has a really nice texture and weight to it.
-The colors are pretty and soft.
-I found that the stickers were of thinner material than your normal cardstock stickers.  I liked this because my stickers weren't coming of the sheet before I even used them.  HUGE bonus!!

What I didn't like:
Nothing.  For their first collection, they did great!



What I made:
4x6 Card
 Supplies:  Cardstock: Bazzill Basics Wheat; Pearls: Kaisercraft; Lace: Misc; Clear Stamp: Avocado Arts; Dye Ink: Close To My Heart Chocolate; All other supplies Carta Bella Beautiful Moments Collection

I am not usually interested in florals, but the colors in this collection really call to me. Plus your cards are really inspiring. I think I will take a closer look.
