It's A Boy

 Hello everyone,

Thought I'd pop in and show a comissioned piece that I just finished and delivered.

It's a Baby Boy book.

It was pretty easy to make and the person who purchased it, just loved it. 

Let me share some photos of the book.

Here is the front cover


The checkered piece you see in the above pic, is attached to the 6X6 page Its a half page and it folds to the back of that page, it holds a small long tag. To the right of the binding you will see a powder blue half page. It folds to the front of that 6X6 page. It too holds a long tag.The 6X6 page also holds a pull out as well, so there is lots of room to add pics and notes.

another page

This 6X6 book also has 3X6 pages on either side of the 6X6. I make these books with 6 pages and the book has a front and back covers, just like a regular book. I added decorative binding to each page and the covers and used my Cinch to bind it with binding wires. There is plenty of room for pics and notes and other rememberences and small memorabilia. I added white ribbon to the pull outs (tags) so its easy to spot and to pull out.

The DP I used is from a 12X12 pad that I purchased last year -  I think I bought it at Stampeddler Plus near Novi Michgan, at a great craft store. They had very unique items and I also picked up a pad for girls as well. 

I love making these books and as I mentioned they are easy to make (IMHO). Of course everything is easy when you know how, LOL. (That's what a lot of my friends tell me anyway.)
