Cindy's Mini Baby Book

I created this mini album for my niece Cindy and her new baby due, Nov 2010.  I am proud to report that all supplies I had on hand, with one exception the rings.  Which is a long story, but surfice to say I now have 97 additional rings on hand, so I doubt that will ever be a problem again.  The album came together in a weekend, I kept it simple.

The details...The covers are raw chip board, cut to 6 x 6.5, punched, and painted in pink.  The paper background is white, embosed and rubbed with CTMH Baby Pink Ink,   Three ribbons along the side, with a highchair charm added.  One dollie, inked in the center, with pearls added, and a crochet flower.  The bunny is from K&Co. sticker set.

The inside pages I used various Sizzix die cuts, a few K&Co. stickers and the labels were printed using  doodle bats.   I used my LuminArte paints to get some shimmer on my flower die cuts.  And some Distress Stickles for the lions mane.  Under some of the photo mats I have a pull out sheet that mom and dad can add journaling.

The two strollers I created by using a 2" round scallop punch, cutting that in half and decorating, the wheels are 5/8" punch with brads.

I'm quite pleased with the finished book, I hope Cindy enjoys filling it up with photos.


  1. Now when you say "I kept it simple" I hope that was a sarcastic statement cause that looks pretty intricate. Ans whats all this about 97 rings... really.

  2. Oh this is beautiful. I bet your niece was thrilled to receive this. All the ribbon and doily are wonderfully sweet and girly. Just perfect.
