This is obviously the cover of the book. I used a simple black frame I got in the dollar bin at Micheal's a while back and added one of my favorite pictures I took of my Bug when she was only a week old.
This is a close up of the cover's details. I used some tiny pink roses, some bling flourish, a TC chipboard clock and a TC crown charm. The quote was cut out of some of the TC Baby Girl Chic paper (this whole book uses that line and a few other TC pink papers)
I used the Cinch to bind the book together and used my favorite "Marta binding" on this book. This is so nice because it lies totally flat for writing in.
I used the same photo as on the front cover for the first page, just bigger. She looks like a little angel in this picture!
This next set of pages is all about her arrival day. Bryanna will be filling in all of the stats. More TC chipboard, pink rhinestones and little black satin bows. I made the text box frame with a digital frame I purchased a while back. You will see this frame over and over again in the book. All of the text work was done in my fav program "Print Master"
The photo flips up to show 2 more of her "first" photos. I had a hard time deciding which one to use so I decided to make it flip so I wouldn't have to choose!
This is the "Visitors" page. I added a photo of all of us at the hospital getting to see her for the first time. And then a text box for Bryanna to record everyone that actually came to visit.
This is the Birth Announcement/Homecoming page. My computer crashed right after Bug was born so I do not have a photo of her actual homecoming but I figure they can put a picture of the house there. I made an envelope with my Cricut machine to hold the birth announcement.
I wanted to "hide" the announcement because it really didn't match the baby book at all with all of it's red, white & blue Union Jack stuff!
This is the "Family" page showing each member of Bugs new family holding her.
It was important to Bryanna to have this section in Bug's book too so this has the headlines and prices of things the day she was born. I left the facing page's frame empty so she could add a photo of her choice there. Notice it is that same digital frame again. I used my Cricut machine throughout the book as well for the little title cards and some of the embellishments. The buggy is from the Heritage cartridge and the title cards are from Teresa Collins' Sophisticated cartridge.
This spread is for Bugs doctor visits. I drove them to her first appointment so I was able to get this photo of the Doc examining her.
The appointment text flips us for her to record all of Bug's shots
The next few pages are of Bug's first big holidays. This one is her 1st Christmas. I used the same layout on each of the holiday pages. The framed text box has a place to write where they celebrated, who was there, what they did and Christmas even has a space for gifts received.
These holiday pages also have photo mats that flip up so there can be more than one photo of the event.
This is for her 1st Birthday. This photo is one of the photos we used on her party invitation. I made that big #1 with my Cricut machine out of 8 layers of chipboard and glitter paper so it would hold up through the shoot.
