A Year in Review - Baby Books

Happy Monday to all!

It's been quite a while since I posted something on my blog.  I was very busy decorating, planning and hosting dinners for Thanksgiving and Christmas.  Then my husband and I took a two week trip to Hawaii for our 30th Anniversary in November and we also spent a week at my daughters after Christmas.  I didn't have time to finish any projects until now.

I used a Paper Phenomenon kit called "A Year in Review-Baby".  I made this for my brother and his wife who recently welcomed a beautiful baby girl to their family in January.  The papers are from a Kaisercraft paper line called "Bundle of Joy - Girl", and I used lots of chipboard and Bazzill cardstock "Cream Puff".  I really love how it turned out!  It consists of three blocks sitting on top of a drawer.  Inside each block is a pull out cube containing two double album holders, which then contain a total of 4 mini albums.  All together the three cubes hold 12 mini albums, one for each month of the baby's first year.  The albums are pretty tiny but they are meant to just hold a few photos so you can go back and see just how the baby changed each week or so.  There is a good sized drawer under the cubes which will be great for holding little mementos like hospital bracelets, hair bows, maybe a curl from baby's first haircut, that kind of stuff.

I so love this was so fun to make!

Here it is...I put little "Lily's" name on the top of the first cube.

Back side showing the cubes pulled out
Cube pulled out - 2 sections which holds a total of 4 mini albums
Here is one of the two sections removed from the cube
This is that same section now opened - it holds two of the mini albums one on each side

These are the two mini albums
This is one of the mini albums opened - it has three pages and a pocket at the edge of each page
that can be used for more photos or maybe a card
Lily's name at the top of the first cube!  I love the little lamb sticker too!

Thanks for stopping by...
