Sweet Baby Girl Book

As promised, here is the baby book I did for a girl. The paper is from K & Co. Itsy Bitsy Stack. It measures 8 1/2 x 8 1/2 and makes a nice sized book. The thickness of the book was larger than I expected and I used 2" cable rings (made by 7 Gypsies Co.)

The cover was made using Martha Stewart Punch Around the Page Daisy punch set. I did the largest one 8 1/2" x 8 1/2"..the next one was cut 6 3/4" x 6 3/4" and the title mat was cut at 5" square and just punched the corners. Title was cut using All Mixed Up cartridge and my Gypsy, cut on the Cricut.

Sugar and Spice title was cut using the Gazelle. One tag has printed a place for baby stats (birthdate, weight, length, etc)

I used ribbons, borders and corners to make the photo insertion simpler for the person using the book. And I like the look it gives the pages.

The title for this page was also cut using the Gazelle. Its a photo mat that has a pocket with a tag for another photo and journalling. LOTS of room for all sorts of whatever can be added!

I used the same Martha Stewart border punch on this page too...but using two strips of cardstock to form a pocket to hold the tags.

I love the papers of this stack. So many different colors and prints and yet they are all coordinated (which is something I have trouble using an entire stack is great because I know it all "goes together!" I enjoyed using border punches throughout the book!

One of my favorite border punches and the way I used it, it looks like it is punched all the way around the page. Its EK Success slim line punch Scrolls. I also made the photo corners for this page (see my blog post for March 24 for the tutorial)

I used the Basic Grey magnets to hold this folder closed. I LOVE those magnets. The Bling butterfly is from Recollections brand from Michael's.

This is the above folder, but shown open.

I'm gearing up for a new batch of mini books. AND I would like to add that I have been selected as a Design Team member for the Cricut Mini Books blog. I'm a bit nervous, but excited about being a part of this new blog. I've got several ideas whirring around in my brain!

Thanks for stopping by. Have a great weekend.
