Baby Boy Shower Bitty Book

A special gift for a Baby Boy Shower: this retired Stampin-Up Bitty Books are a snap to decorate but serves a great purpose for 3" x 3" snapshots. Album is painted with white acrylic paint.  Solid papers used are from Recollections. Decorative Paper is from Simple Stories Color Vibe 6x6 Paper Pack.  Finished Album case size is 5" x 4-1/4" x 1-3/8".  The original project is chipboard which was painted with white paint.  Inside album is 4-4/8" x 3-3/4" x 1". A small white shopping bag will hold the finished album.

Front Box Cover:

Double matted album cover and album.  Center of album cover is using White cut using the Silhoutte Nested Shape cut file.  Add texture to the Grey card stock by using the Cuttlebug Swiss Dots Embossing Folder.  Then shape is popped with foam tape.

Small baby onesies are cut using the Silhouette Baby Banner file (without the string across the top) - add foam squares to them.

Name is cut using the Silhouette. Making the white card stock shadow was a snap with the Silhouette.
Spine: 1/8" wide red satin ribbon is wrapped, single knotted with themed sport charms. These sport charms can be found at a local craft store. To secure the knots and charms from coming loose, use mini glue dots n tuck knot inside the bead.
Album Cover:

Double mats same as the album cover used for the outside of the album cover.   Two die cut baby pins on the bottom right corner.

 Album inside cover: a touch of 1/8" wide red card stock peeks out of the pocket.  Grey card stock uses the Cuttlebug Swiss Dots Embossing Folder.Pages have red, black, and white card stock mats.

 Inside page 1: a small copy of the invitation.
 Thank you for stopping by today. Have a crafty day.
