Baby Book

This is my first `bind it all` book and I am really pleased with it. One of my Mum`s friends has just had a little girl so I thought I would send a small gift to welcome her into the world. I can`t believe how easy it was to make.

I used chipboard for the front and back covers to give it alittle more stability and then used back to back card stock for the inner pages. Unfortunately you can`t see very easily the name and date of birth around the pram. I can assure you that its far easier in `the flesh` so to speak.

I cut the letters and numbers out using my Squeeze tool and my Nestabilites to mat some of the photograph areas. Here are one or two of the inner pages. The stickers are from K & Co., really cute. I love these giraffs, they are stamped from the `Just so Hippy set` and Accecessories by Melanie Muenchinger. There are so many different stamps in the sets and all very cute. You can buy these sets from Gina K.


Card Stock: Bazzil Textured
Paper: Imaginisce Baby Powder - Rosy Cheeks, Baby`s Breath, Cutie Patootie.
Ink: Lamp Black, Pink Markers
Accessories: Ribbon, Nestabilities, Squeeze Tool, Stickers from K & Co., Punch, Buttons.

Thank you for looking, have a great day.

Gosh its cold today we have snow on the ground and I think its here to stay. Looking at the weather forecast at least for the next week or two and temperatures in the minus. I shovelled the drive this was freezing, literally !!

At last I have a minute to myself. Today is my daughter`s birthday party so its been a mad dash to get everything organised. They are quite happy at the moment watching a movie before the food is served.
Here is another of my Christmas cards. I used the burnished velvet technique on this card to create the snowmen disks. I realise that it isn`t really in the christmas colours but I when I made this card I had just aquired the chocolate satin ribon and was desperate to use it !!


Card Stock; Bazzil bling
Accessories; Cuttlebug alphabet, corner punch, glitter, snowman punch, chocolate satin ribbon.

Thank you for looking, take care.

My early New Years Resolution is to keep an up to date blog. Not sure what I am going to write today but at least its a post to get into the swing of things. Busy day at work and have not had a chance to make any new cards.

Last night was our Stampin Up christmas party. It was great fun to meet the ladies and what alot of fantastic ideas. I have afew I am going to try. The Secret Santa gifts were great. I actually ended up with a set of coasters made from tiles and stamped with the Voila set which is on my wish list to get.

Here is a card I made awhile ago. I love my Whipper Snapper stamps !
