Baby Book Ideas (Crate Paper)

Hi Everyone


I first showed this book last year, but instead of sending it to my sister to complete - I filled it in for her -  knowing only too well that time can be pretty short when you have a new baby in the house!


Sorry I can't show you any detailed pictures of the inside - but I hope you understand it's not my baby to share!



I used a Maya Road 5x7 tabbed book as a base and the Crate Paper Little Sprout and Lillian Collections to decorate. I have used Cosmo Cricket's Tiny Type Number Stickers for the tabs - and I have to say they are the first transparent stickers I have used which virtually disappear on the paper - FABULOUS!


These collections are a couple of years old and I picked them us super cheap - but the patterns are timeless and absolutely gorgeous.

Please email me with any questions or comments.

    1. Thank you so much for your feedback Barb - it is very much appreciated. I wish I could show more pics of the inside but again, not really fair as it's not my baby!

  3. Absolutely beautiful! I love classic Crate Paper and you really made the paper work for you- will you look at that doodled chevron?? SO AWESOME!!! The finish on this is wonderful as well- how do you get such a close adhesion to the board? It looks manufactured!!! I just started to follow by email- I don't bother going to my blog reader anymore since I tend to spend hours perusing- this way I can catch your updates when I'm not distracted! I hope everything works out with the blog turn over- you are doing fantastically!

    1. Hi Michelle - thanks for your feedback. I used my usual solvent based glue (think uhu or zip-dry or Helmar 450) got it right to the edge and cleaned up any spill with an adhesive eraser and then used fine grit sandpaper for a clean look finish.

      I have started to do the same - I have had a lot of people sign up to email following since I added that widget! It's great for non-blogging people to follow easily too!

  4. Hi! The RSS feed I use to follow your posts transferred fine. I wouldn't have known there was a change based on that alone. Dora :)

    1. Thank you so much for your feedback Dani - it is very much appreciated. It was a fun project and it's so great to give a handmade gift for the Mum - babies always get the gifts after Mum has done all the work LOL

  7. Darling album! The little details make it so perfect. Now I want to make one but have no babies in my future...that I know about, anyway! I get blog updates through an RSS feed and it came through perfectly. I enjoy your blog and your projects. I really want to shamelessly copy everything...instead, I just shamelessly adapt! Keep up the great work!

  10. Love your cover! That's very thoughtful of you not to share a baby that's not yours! I was going to make a gift album for a friend who's having her fourth baby, but I think I will offer to do the scrapping, too, since you are so right that it's hard to find the time to even put the pictures in, etc. when there's little ones around (and in my friend's case older ones to look after, too!) TFS!

  14. Your blog post appeared as per normal on my blogger dashboard thingo. I didn't notice anything different! (Maybe that just means I'm not very observent!)

    Lovely project and I'm sure it'll be treasured! :)

  15. Great idea! New mommies are always so involved in the doing of life that memory-keeping does fall by the wayside. And being as close as a sister you can have all the info she shares. Very cool!
