Thanks Dani! - aka cutest little baby book
If you haven't checked out Stamping Dani you do not know what you are missing!!! She has the best ideas and incredible tutorials to go with them. Well this is another CASE...although not as good as hers.
This is an imitation Bazzil MonoMini Album...if you are curious she has templates and everything! I just thought this would make the cutest...and I mean cute, little baby book for a new mother to record her thoughts on the baby.
So this is a long strip of paper 2.75" X 11" folded in half then folded inside itself...leaving a half inch channel. This does not make an exact square but it is close enough. I cuttlebugged the outside with Divine Swirls (sigh...don't make my mistake, cuttle after you fold not before or else the panels don't lie flat!). Punch holes on each side to thread the ribbon through. I stamped the main image in Palette Noir...that adorable little bundle is from TAC Special Delivery...and mounted it on a pale yellow scalloped square (mega size).
The inside is 3 sheets white cardstock 2.5" X" 5", use a really good punch (like you use to set eyelets) and punch through all the layers (including the green). I stamped the outside edge of each page with a stamp from TAC Paisley Rocks. I used Palette Viridian Leaf, but stamped off a few times to make it really faint.
That's about it! But seriously check out Dani's instructions they are fabulous.
Also I just hit a milestone...I'm 225th on the top 50 list...so coming up is Blog Candy to celebrate! Any ideas what I should do? This is my first one!! Chime in everyone.
