So Sweet Baby Book with Beginnings

Hello, Friends!  It's Kathy here with a brand new project made with Authentique's Beginnings Collection.  It was love at first sight when I opened up this darling collection of tiny prints and retro images.  I pulled out my Eileen Hull Travel Journal Die from Sizzix and made this So Sweet Baby Book.


Traveler's Journals are trending right now, and what could be sweeter than a baby book made with this fun format.  The baby book measures 4.5" wide x 8.75" tall.  Each of the 3 inner signatures measures 4.25" wide x 7.75" tall.  If you're not familiar with the cover assembly, I've put together a quick Snapguide tutorial to show you how it's done.



Side tabs mark the beginning of each section of the album.


Here's a peek at the inside cover and first signature page.  The tag pocket is made with Authentique Spectrum Antique Lace paper.  I love the crisp folds I get when I use it!  I used one of the adorable Details Stickers and some banner flags cut from scratch to decorate the pocket.


This large tag is made by cutting a 4" x 6" rectangle of Bubblegum Pink Spectrum paper.  then I rounded the bottom corners, cropped the top corners with a shaped punch and added some ribbon. There's plenty of room on the back for a photo or journaling.


I like to use different sized papers in the book.  It adds variety, and a fun interactive element to the design.


Create little flip books by cutting the 6x6 bundle papers in half.  Then score in the middle and decorate the covers with Details Stickers.  

There are so many different interactive elements in this So Sweet Baby Book that I went ahead and made a YouTube video tour.  I'll show you all the features of the book, and share lots of tips and tricks that you can use in your own crafty adventures.  I hope you enjoy!




Thanks so much for letting me share this wonderful collection with you.  I hope I've shared some ideas that inspire you to get out your pretty Authentique papers, scissors and glue and get your craft on.

Cheerio,
kathy
