A (not for me) Baby Book

This is a baby book that I made for a Baby Shower that's coming up for someone in our Sunday School Class.

All the patterned paper is from K& Co, not sure of the name. I have had it for YEARS! All the cardstock is DCWV. All the jewels are from the Dollar Bin at Michael's. I need to stock up after this book!

The book is cut 8x8, covered with patterned paper and cardstock, edges painted white with acrylic paint.
The frame is a 4.25"x6.25" rectangle (George & Basic Shapes) with a flourish (Storybook) welded to the top and bottom. I cut a second flourish from patterned paper and attatched with pop-dots.

{Just ignore my husband in the background!}
The tags (5" from Tags, Bags, Boxes, & More) pull out for journaling. (Flowers from American Heritage, Brads from WeRMemory Keepers.) I had to cut the top of the florish off in order for the tags to go down behind the frame.

The file folders open out for journaling and are tied shut with some ribbon from my stash. (cut at 3" from Fabulous Finds)
 All the cuts on this page came from Storybook. The butterfly is from the border feature (cut at 2") and the scallop square is cut at 3". I used Pocket Full of Posies paper pack from DCWV for these cuts. I inked them with 2 colors of green VersaMark  ink, because, well...just because. :0)
On this page, the butterflies pull out for journaling. 
This flower is also from Storybook. It is 3" high and then squished to about 4" wide. This paper is the same paper as the butterflies from the previous page.
 These lift up for journaling underneath. I used packing tape, sticky side up, under the cut-out portion of the flower and then sprinkled glitter on it. (I saw this idea on someone's blog, but I can't remember whose!)
An assortment of photo mats cut at 4.25"x6.25". I used the Poppy (cut at 1.5") corner feature from Storybook.
