"Baby Girl Book and Box"

As promised from yesterday blog entry - the baby book that fits nicely inside of the beverage box. I did have to cut the front piece that seperates the two spots so I could get both the book and the rattle in the spot.

I used Pink Stitchery paper from the Homespun Chic Collection on the covers of my book. I took a white doily and sprayed it with glimmer mist, glue it to the front and cut it to fit the front cover. I used a rub on from Imaginisce "From the Heart" on white paper to go behind the Homespun Chic Layered Frames. Glue your frame to the front of your book (make sure that it glued really, really well). Once it is secured I used Glossy Accent to fill the center of the frame. I allowed mine to dry over night. It will create a glass look. I add small flowers and gemstones from Recollections once I knew that it was dry.

The inside pages are the Homespun Chic Collection Recipe Cards. I used the K&Company Suzy Ultman - Lion Steps for my months on the pages of my book. I used Homespun Chic papers and cardstock for my mats, stickers from Karen Foster Smile & Giggles Stickers, Prima flowers, American Traditions Stickers, Recollection flowers, twine, buttons, gemstones, lace, and ribbon to embellish my pages with.

After my inside pages were completed. I put my book together and added a metal tag from Flair Designs to hang off the jump rings, make sure to tie some pretty ribbons on your jump rings.
