A Baby Shower Book

Good afternoon, everyone!  It has been a very nice day here in Maine. The sun is shining and the temperature is 74 degrees outside in the sun.  
Well, I have been taking pictures of a baby shower book I made for a friend.  I would like to share the pics with you.

This is the cover of the 11in. x 11in. hand made book.  If you enlarge the picture you can see the pink, half pearls on the first letter of each word. 
This is the book opened.  Notice the "Hello Kitty" in the left top corner.   She is out in the rain. I used the Hello Kitty Greeting Cricut cartridge to cut her out and the Pooh Font Set Cricut cartridge to cut out the words.  I used the Cricut Gypsy to weld the words together. More about the papers, card stock, and embellishments later.

On the bottom left corner you will find a box with files inside.  Those files are filled with computer generated forms; for the Guest to sign and to leave a comment to the mother-to-be, a list for all the gifts she receives, and the list of games played at the baby shower.

This is the accordion photo album for all those wonderful baby shower pictures that will be taken during the festivities.  

This is the envelope photo album where all those pictures of Mommy-to-be will be.  These photos will tell the story of Mommy as she goes through each month while waiting for sweet baby to arrive.  As the album is opened you can see on the left and right sides there is room for pictures also.

 Each envelope holds a tabbed photo mat embellished with a button indicating what month she is at during her pregnancy. There is room for photos on the front and back of each file.

This was a large project.  I really enjoyed making this.  This book may have come from multiple ideas I have seen on many different blogs or sites, but this design is totally my own. 

The papers, card stock, and embellishments I used to create this book are from my personal, non Stampin' Up products. 

Thank you for stopping by.  I hope you enjoyed what you see here.
Have a great day!

National Scrapbooking Month is here!

Hello again.  Yes it is me.  I woke up at 8:00 this morning and could not go back to sleep, in spite of the time that I had actually gone to sleep.  I believe the clock said around 4:00 am  when I last looked before finally falling asleep.  So I am running on fumes today.  Those of you who know me understand how I need at least 8 hours of sleep to function at my best.  I predict a nap later today.
Now, while I seem to be alert, I will attempt to add a link to my blog.  I am still not computer savy so here goes nothing.
Oh first I want to say, welcome to National Scrapbooking Month.
Now with that said I shall attempt a feet I can't remember how to do (lol). 

I was looking to add the image.  so let me see if this works.
Nope didn't work.  Ok, still working on it. 

Ok, still having trouble so I will add my link to my Website.

 I have been playing with my blog and I just realized how late it is. Or should I say how early it was.  I am trying to make improvements to my blog, but I'm afraid it is a slow process for me.  I just have a hard time catching on I guess.  Well I wanted to post something to see just how it looks so far. 

Here are some little note pad I covered using Stampin' Up card stock and some 3x5 unlined tablets.  These make nice gifts to give to that person who love to make lists. They are kept closed with the ribbon. Thanks for stopping by.

Have you made a memory today?
