Heart Shaped Baby Book (part 1)

For the cover I used New Arrival and cut the baby at 2" and the stork at 3". I cut the baby sling, stork, and hat twice. I inked the edges and then used pop-dots to attach the duplicate cuts. It adds a bit of dimension to the front cover. And of course, there is lots of ribbon on the binding rings.

This is the invitation on page 37 from Wild Card. It's cut at 4". I glued a length of ribbon to the back and then tied the extra into a bow to keep it closed. It is such a perfect bow that I hated to untie it! The inside is white so the mom-to-be can add a photo or use it for journaling.

This is also from Wild Card. It is the doily card cut at 3.5 inches."Bath Time" is from New Arrival and cut at 2". I used my gel pen to color in the bubbles and then added a jewel as the dot the "i."

The photo mat is cut at 3.5"x3.5". I stamped the sentiment and added some cute buttons.

This is pretty much the same as the facing page.

This photo mat is cut at 4"x3.5". "Little One" is from New Arrival and cut at 1" with a jewel used to dot the "i".

This photo mat is also cut at 4"x3.5" with a cluster of jewels on the border for some added sparkle.

OK, for some reason, it's not letting me post the rest of my pictures, so I'm going to have to do it in another post. Grrrrr!
