Hello paper lovers, thank you for stopping by! Today I have baby girl book made with vintage style scrapbook paper. I love this paper line, Little Darlings Collection by graphic 45. I find myself always wanting to make baby girl projects. I think after years of making things for my boys, I just can't resist the "girl" paper now! Or maybe I am at just hoping for a granddaughter someday! Whichever it is girly projects for now!
At first I wanted to make a banner, but then I thought a book would probably make a more "savable" keepsake.
Below is a photo of the Jolee's fabric flower I attached with some ribbon to one of the large rings I used for the book binding.
This picture below is a close-up of the banner I made for the front cover of the book. (see I did get a banner in the project) . I made 4, one inch pinwheels with my Martha Stewart scoreboard, I inked all the edges with brown ink. I cut the letters for baby with my Cricut, using the Mini Monogram's cartridge.
Here is a peek of the inside cover and page one. I love all the sweet images. So soft and vintagey, I know that's not a word! But it should be!
Below a close-up of another tiny banner I made for page 2. Everything is glued down with a glue gun to hold it in place.
Pages 2 and 3. Plenty of spaces to put pictures of your little darling!
Below a picture of pages 4 and 5.
Pages 6 and 7 below.
Pages 7 and 8.
Lastly page 9 and the back cover. This book was so easy to put together, the paper is so pretty the pages just designed themselves.
The back cover of the book.
A couple of close-ups of the front cover. So for fun I listed and sold this book on Ebay. Many years ago I put some of my cards and scrapbook layouts on EBay and most of them sold. Sometimes I would get several bids and a few times no bids at all, which can be a blow to the creative ego, but you just create and try again, right? There are several thousand scrapbook type pieces listed on EBay so I think it is really hit or miss as far as a buyer seeing your work. But it's fun to list something and see what kind of reaction your work gets, and the creative ego has to be tough!
Thank you for stopping by, if your are a paper crafter let me know what your favorite style is. I like many different styles, I am usually inspired by the paper! Have a great day! Lori
