Baby's First Year Book....

I've been wanting to share with
 the you the baby book I made for my new
Great Niece Isabella.
It's a Baby's First Twelve month book.
I have lots of photos to share with you.
 
Lets start with the cover...


I printed out her name and the title on vellum paper.A few rhinestones added some bling.


Lots of pretty pink ribbons were tied to the binder rings.


Here's the inside cover and the first month.
I used one of the packages of scrapbooking papers from JoAnns. 
There were lots of paper with glitter on the paper.


A growth chart to keep a record of the baby's monthly changes.
I made the chart up myself. 

Want  a copy?

I'll tell you at the end of this post how to get it.


More BLING!



Some texture was added
 by wrapping a pretty yarn around the
 "Baby's Schedule Chart".


This was a paper I found at a store.
I needed quite a few of these and they didn't have enough.

I just made copies for the additional ones I needed.
I embellished it by adding a sticker that said "Baby" and sewing a Zig Zag stitch around the edge with my sewing machine.




Month one...


Month Two and Three...
I added a smaller page for jourling each month.



Each month has a number for the month. 
 I printed the number out on colored scrapbooking paper.
I then  cut it out with a punch and glued it to a white disk with a silver ring around it. 
 I found these at the office supply store.

Want a copy of the numbers?
Read on.....


I love using silk flowers. 

Here's a way to save money...

Go  to Michaels and purchase a bush of flowers
and use them individually. 
 It's much less expensive than going to the scrapbooking store.


Month four and five...



Don't you just love gerber daiseys?


Month Six...
I love adding pockets to the pages.
It's a great way to store special baby items and photos.


Month Seven...


Pretty Buttons and rhinestones embellish the page.



More pages I copied and added to the book
 to allow for recording special memories.



Stop by later this week to see the rest of the book, 
 months eight through twelve.

Now if you want a copy of numbers, sayings, cover words and growth chart here's how you can get one.

I love your photo albums, Sherry, and this one is just as wonderful! Love all the bling and the long narrow pages you added {the Once Upon a Time and journaling ones}. You put so much into it with the pockets and the additions of the growth chart and tags in pockets. Just beautiful!

What a beautiful book you have made. You are very talented and creative! I am actually making a book for my newborn niece. She is 1week old today. She lives 13 hours away and I won't get to see her until she is a month old. I want to make a scrapbook for her with a picture from each day of her forst month. I figured it would be her "first 30 days" book. Do you think this is a good idea? My sister sends me several pictures every single day and I have folders on my computer for each day. I would love a copy of your numbers ( I guess I would need up to 30) and also the bible verse you have on the other baby book! Thank you so much and I can't wait to hear from you. My email is lindy.roberts@insightbb.com
