Bridal Shower Bitty Book

This project was made for a bridal shower but if she wants, it can be used for another event, too. Since I did not know the colors she has chosen for the wedding, this cherry paper from Creative Imaginations seems to be the perfect paper to use for this project. There will be twenty 3-1/4" x 3-1/4" size snapshots that can be inserted inside.

Side Album hanging pearls - simply thread the brown cord (from a local crafts tore: Beverly's) with a pearl or two and knot ends............

Bitty Book Back Cover:

These flowers are positioned on both corners custom made to match the patterned paper. The Groovy Guava flower was made using the 3rd (counting from the center) Spellbinders Lacey Circles die. The Vanilla flowers were made by using the 2nd Spellbinders Lacey Circles die. Position the flowers on the cover, then add the smaller flowers around them - adhere with Tombow glue, finish off with adhesive pearls. I love how they turned out - go to Becca Bits ( to her video posted on March 11, 2011 to see how easy it is to make them in a variety of sizes. Becca is truly a imaginative creator of everything!

The main focus of the album cover: "2011": cut by using SCAL (Sure Cuts a Lot) and my own Brushstroke Numbers cut @1" in both Groovy Guava and Chocolate Chip. The Spellbinders Lacey Circles is cut in Chocolate Chip and popped up with dimensionals.

The album inside: "Friends" is stamped using Chocolate Chip ink, punched using SU's Large Oval Punch, positioned on to the Spellbinders Fancy Tags die cut in Chocolate Chip. I love Melanie Muencginger's stamp set: "The Best Things in Life" has the single words to customize and create great messages. Purchase her stamp set at Gina K Designs (
