A Baby Photo Album to Treasure...

I've been sharing with you
 in my three previous posts the shower gifts for
Baby Isabella.
She arrived on Christmas Day
so I had to make this little bundle of joy
 a gift for her Christmas arrival.

What better than a little book to store some precious photos.
I started off with an inexpensive photo album
 that I actually purchased at the dollar store.

Check out my post HERE showing what album I used.

I made a matching gift bag to put the album in....

Lots and Lots of PINK!

Had to have some Bling.
Why not add a few rhinestones....

I purchased a JUMBO pack of rhinestones at JoAnns.  
  The package of rhinestones had all different shapes and sizes. 
It was $19.99,  but I NEVER buy anything without a coupon. 
The final price as $9.99 which was well worth it!

I used a large gold safety pin to hold the ribbon on and added another rhinestone shaped like a flower for an embellishment.
I topped that off with a pink pearl!

The scarpbooking paper I used was left over
from the "Baby's First 12 Month Book" I made. 

 I always save my scraps. 
 They are perfect for these kind of projects.

Here's the inside of the book....

I added a bible verse to the first page.  
If you became a follower and emailed me,
I sent you this printable.

Want a copy?
Follow me and send me a comment.
I'll send it right out.

The matching bag with lots of embellishments and the same verse.

I love the look of adding the daises.

This was another project  I really enjoyed doing. 
 It gave me the opportunity to use lots of girly things.

I'll be sharing this idea at the following links....

Baby's First Year Book Continued....

As promised here is the rest of the baby book I made my
Great Niece Isabella...

(If you want to see the first part of the book go HERE)

Months Eight and Nine

There's lots of room to attached some precious photos...

A pocket to store special mementos....

One of my favorite bible verses...
I know God has great things in store for baby Isabella...

Months Ten and Eleven....
I added lots of embellishments.

I've shared this tip many times with you...

Don't buy the individual silk petals in the scrapbooking department.  Just buy a bush of flowers and pull it apart. 
 You get so much more for the same amount of money.
  Then you'll always have extra for another project!

 A pretty ribbons, buttons, girly papers
 and a safety pin dress up this page...

Another wonderful saying to let Isabella know
how much she is loved by her creator.

I Love adding Tags to the pages...
I had some great yarn in my stash to add to the tag!

Why not glue a rhinestone on to an orginary safty pin?

 Last month of the year. 
Month Twelve... 

Some shred with a little bit of iridescent Bling
added to the number 12.

Would you like to have all these sayings?
 I'll tell you how you can get them all printed out and ready to use
at the end of the post.

The completed book. 
The back cover.

 A Sweet gift for Baby Isabella to treasure for years to come...
Given with love by her Aunt Sherry!

The book took me a day to make.
 I enjoyed every minute while I was making it.
Who wouldn't?

Lots of glitter, BLING and PINK Girly Things!
Now if you want a copy of numbers, sayings, cover words and growth chart here's how you can get one.

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.


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.
