Good morning!! This is the handmade portion of my baby shower gift!! I can't just give store bought stuff!!! That wouldn't be right!! haha!!! This is a 6x6 post bound brag book. I used the "Special Delivery Girl" Simply Scrappin' Kit--boy, are these easy to work with!!! I really love the colors in this one: Apricot Appeal, Groovy Guava, River Rock & Sahara Sand. Looks so sweet and old-fashioned!
Here's the front cover. I used one long strip of Groovy Guava ribbon, then tied on many, many scraps of the other matching ribbons. This was my friend, Pami's idea--love it!! The letters are adhesive die-cuts, but I went ahead and put them through my xyron, just to make sure. Still not sure how long it will last--we'll have to see!
Pages 2 & 3. The left side has a tag where she can add all the important data!!
Pages 4 & 5
Pages 6 & 7. These are very simple pages, but I thought they would look so cute with a black & white photo!!
Pages 8 & 9
This is the only stamping throughout the entire book!! I used the "happy" from Fundamental Phrases! The hardware is from the aged copper hardware.
Pages 10 & 11.
I tried to leave some room for journaling all those emotions you go through as a brand new mommy!
Pages 12 & 13.
I know the right hand page is VERY plain. BUT, I'm going to give the new mom the extra adhesive die-cutes from the kit--she can add some flowers after she puts the pictures in!
Pages 14 & 15
Pages 16 & 17.
These were supposed to be mirror-images of each other, but I put the ribbon on wrong!! I still like the eay it turned out! She can journal in all the blank space!!
Pages 18 & 19
I think these are my favorite pages!! Again, the left page is for journaling. I just love the flowers on the left side--so cheery!!
Last but not least!! I've always liked this nursery rhyme, so thought it would be a cute ending to the book. And, if the new mom doesn't want it, she can always put a picture over it!! :-)
Have a great day!!!
