Oh Baby! Oh Baby!

Congratulations to Sophie and her husband....and Welcome to Baby Sage!
Thanks to all the Baby Blog Hoppers for sharing in the joy and the fun!
I made a sweet little mini book for Sophie to add any ole fun photos of Sage.  Sophie can use this as a gift for a faraway family member or for her husband to take to work to show off.  Or for anything, really.  Who needs an excuse to scrap adorable baby photos, especially when the child is one of your own or a loved ones?!?!?

For this project, I started with 3 sets of Zutter 6X6 Chipboard Covers that I ran through my Sizzix, using the new border dies from Tim Holtz.  Pretty nifty to get the decorative edges AND make a graduated cover, all by my little self.
I used a fun fun fun paper line from Sassafras Lass called Nerdy Bird.  Doesn't the name alone make you want to smile?  That's what I hope Sophie and Sage and anyone who enjoys this album will do when they see it. And....something that I think (in my humble opinion) really  makes the album super custom is that I used BOTH Baby Pink AND Baby Blue Owire in the binding.  It's just a little thing...but I love it.  Not only makes it that much more unique but it's a great way to use bits and pieces of owire that you save (and you should be saving it for things just like this!!)  By the way, my friend Mary put together the flower combination below....I think it looks just right on this page.


Of course I made each page ready for photos and a bit of fun journaling, with little enhancements and doo-dads.  But it's really about making something special for Sage and/or the recipient of a memory album of an adorable, precious little baby girl!

Sophie and Sage, hope you enjoy it and I'm so pleased to know both of you and call you "Zisters"!!!

Wow, this is so cool!!! Loved looking through all your posts and now I'm very inspired! I didn't realize the dies would work with heavy chipboard so that is great to know, and your other ideas are fantastic (like creating a journal and attaching a bag'o'embellies!
