Mia's Baby Bitty Album

Made this baby album for a newborn girl. The base of this project kit is from Stampin-Up. Many years ago this chipboard album kit was available to assemble and decorate. Kits have been retired for a while.  My own stash has now whittled down to a few kits left to make for special occasions.  Packaged with a clear cello bag and tied with a baby tag (from my stash) makes it a pretty gift for the parents.
Finished album size is 5" x 4-1/8" x 1-1/4".  Darice ABC's Embossing folder used for the front shape.  Both nesting shapes were cut using images from the Silhouette on line store. Stampin-Up and Word Window Punch used for the spinner "track".
See the pacifier roll toward the left when the album box is tilted? It used by adhering two pennies along with foam squares to help it roll.

On the cover the Onesies were cut using the Silhouette, then popped with foam squares.  Name "Mia" is cut using the Silhouette computer program, then popped with foam squares.
