Simple Stories Baby Mini Chipboard Album

This is a Chipboard Mini Baby Book that I made for a co-worker's new baby grand daughter.  I used Simple Stories Baby Steps Collection, along with coordinating Bazzill Cardstock.  The edges are inked with Ranger Distress Stains Victorian Velvet - I just LOVE using it to distress the edges of chipboard books!
All Products were purchased at Scrap-a-Doodle Doo!

I hope you enjoy looking and it inspires you to take time for you and just CREATE!!  It is such a WONDERFUL release and stress reliever!

I made lots of photo mats and used Helmar ZapDots to make some of the paper embellishments 3-D - and also to create pockets to hold tags.

Front Cover I really like how this book came out - even though it has been 17 years since I had a BABY!

I also added some pearl swirls on the letters to BLING them up a bit! 

On the left page - I used one of the clear elements in the collection to form a pocket with a tag to record the baby's birth weight, etc. This was raised by using Helmar's Clear Liquid ScrapDots

All of the papers in the collection, along with the sticker embellishments really go so well together!

On the left page, I used baby powder on the back of the sticker banner that hangs over the pink photo mat - leaving sticky on just the edges of the banner.

I LOVE these pages - there is even a quote from Winnie the Pooh! -
 "Sometimes the smallest things take up the most room in your heart.”

Another pocket with 3 tags on the left and a cute Little Sprout on the right!

Pockets on both pages - the  one on the right has months 7 - 12 each page with an eyelet and strung together - to record Baby's wt, length, etc , and any notes!

Lots more Pockets and Tags - I love the colors - don't you!!

The back page is just perfect - I love the swirls and the beautiful BABY font!

Well - thanks for looking!  I hope you enjoyed peeking as much as the new Grandma liked it!
