Baby Book

Hi Everyone, today for my DT post I am sharing with you a decorated cover for a Baby Book using one of Cheery Lynn Designs fab new Memory Book dies. There are many different designs and Mike Dywan has kindly made a video to explain how you make these which you can view HERE.

I decided I wanted a semi hardback cover to my book so initially glued a sheet of paper to a lightweight GreyBoard and then die cut my spine and cover. 

Next I die cut out single sheets of paper and glued to the inside of my front and back covers. The three layers together would have been too much for the die cutting machine to cut but took the two together with ease.

I rubbed ink around the edges of my die cuts before gluing together to form my book. I cut out the spine once again in white card and stamped the name Kirsty into the hearts and re- inserted them into the spine.

My flowers I pressed a little ink onto the White Cardstock and then sprayed with a little water. I squeezed each petal into the finished shape shown and dried with my heatgun then added a fancy pearl button to the centre.

My image was coloured with Copics and I added a little ink to the frame whilst my die was in place to leave a white border around it.

A view of the inside with blank white pages.

My Pennant die I cut out in patterned and white cardstock. I used the waste part of the White die cut to mount onto my flags for a double layer and used the little Hearts that had come out the border edge strip of my book, finishing off by stamping on the word Baby.

Thanks for stopping by today.
