Baby Girl Bitty Book Album

Time to make another little "Bitty Book" for a baby girl. This one is for a great friend's grand daughter.  These "Bitty Books" were only available at one time through Stampin Up. Unfortunately, this product has been retired for many years. I have been saving mine to use sparingly for special occasions.  This is one of those occasions. So, of course, Pink has the be the color. I happen to also have some left over paper from the Stampin Up Rock a Bye Girl Scrapbook Collection from many years ago. Using this collection for this album was perfect.  The project required only one sheet of 12x12of the  pattern paper. Then a selection of various shades of Pink from my stash worked out great. The center of the case is cut from the invitation received in the mail using one of the Nestibility Ovals. A Sakura Crystal Gel pen is used around many of the cut images for some sparkle.
I finally get to use my Nestibilities - Yay!!!! Having SCAL and the Silhouette these days, I rarely reach for my Nestibilities but I want that embossed look along the edges.  The Oval and Scallop Oval Nestibilities were used for the album case. 
The baby banner is a cut file from the on line Silhouette Store. It is also popped up with foam squares.
Those cute little Mary Jane shoes and Diaper Pin are cut files from the Collection called Bundle of Joy and can be found here. Both are popped up with foam squares.  Note the small adhesive rhinestone on each shoe. 
I love the spine charms - Silver elastic cord is strung and knotted - Glossy Accents was used on the ends to prevent fraying.
Outside Mini Album has two diaper pins, edged with the Sakura Crystal gel Pen around it for some bling.
Inside front and back covers are using the paper along the edge.  The scalloped edge is a EK Success Punch.  Paper used is the reverse side of the heart Stampin Up Paper. The embossing folder is from Cuttlebug called Numbers Collage.
Now let's go over the card: the onesie cut file is from - resized to fit the card , then embossed with Cuttlebug Swiss Dots. The "K" is cut using SCAL. Add a 3/8" wide Organdy ribbon to the onesie neckline using a mini glue dot. A Sakura Crystal Gel pen is used around many of the cut images for some sparkle.
Card inside: a Sakura Crystal Gel pen is used around the diaper pin. Stamped message is from Hero Arts.
A nice ensemble gift for a new grandchild.............thank you for coming by to visit and a happy crafty day to you.
