Jenn, I too scrapped even though we couldn't scrap together tonight!

Well, we were suppose to get together tonight but with the snow and all we couldn't make it. =( From the looks of things that didn't stop Jenn and I from Scrappin' anyway! I have a baby shower for a distant cousin of mine coming up on Sunday so I made this accordion book for the mom to be. I am also making her a New Mother Survival Pail. I will post that tomorrow when I finish it.
So, for this project I used the Creative Imaginations BE Naked Accordion Album and dressed it up with some fabulous Brenda Walton papers. A long time ago I bought the Brenda Walton Scrap Pad to go. The Dollhouse collection. It is so pretty and comes with great stickers and they sell chipboard letters that match it as well as chipboard dies and all kinds of other goodies. I used all the scraps I had left from it to make this book. The few that aren't Brenda Walton on here are so blah, The pink paper with the colored circles with the baby die at the top is not one of my fav. papers but what am I going to do I already glued the bad boy on there. It is three bugs in a rug. The princess crown paper is also three bugs in a rug. The front side came out way better than the back side.

If you click on the picture, which you may already know it will make the picture bigger so you can get a better view. I had to leave room for a wallet size picture so I was limited decorating the area because most would be covered with a pic or two. This was fun cause I got to use a lot of my old stash for this. Like all the dies I had and added a little Martha Stewart bling to it. Jolee's & Sandylion Essentials 3d stickers are always fun for gift projects too! The duck is from a sticker pack I got at Target many, many moons ago. I forget who makes it. I think it is Generic. But they are 3d and are raised with foam dots. They come like that! WOOT WOOT! Bath time is part of the accordion book.
The accordion books come with it's own storage case. I decorated that with the matching papers and added ribbon to the rim that reads Sweet Baby Girl.

The back of the album is the polka dot paper. The front of the album is the cool paisley paper. I also added the same Sweet Baby Girl pink ribbon to the front of the rim of the box. I took my cricut and added SWEET BABY GIRL as the title of the box and inked it with white. I added a lil bling to the "I" in girl. I added foam squares to the back of the baby die cut and called it a day!

Woola, this is how I kept busy during the snow storm! It was fun, but would of been much better if you gals could of joined me! Till tomorrow. Signing off for now. Nicole ((((HUGS))))))

SOOOO AWESOME! I have the dollhouse scrap pad, too! Haven't used it all too much yet. I love the stickers and things that came in that pad, so great. And I also love the chipboard things too.

The mom-to-be will love this album you created for her!

What's so funny? said...

I meant to comment earlier! Woot! This came out awesome. And we're alike in that we pull out all the stops. I don't care if I mix 'n match Walton with Target finds or Heidi Swapp. Whatever gets the job done, girl. This came out great and it all coordinates so nicely. I love all the detail. Your friend will too! Wish I could have been there!
