Baby Book

A woman in my office is having a baby girl in April, and we are giving her a baby shower next week. The office staff is giving her a gift card, but I wanted to give her something special. I had made a similar book for my daughter-in-law a couple of years ago. She was having a little boy, so I had to change several things for this book -- mainly the color scheme!

I love this quilt-like paper that I used for the cover.

I googled "verses for cards" to get many of the quotes I used throughout the book. Unfortunately, the site I had used the first time, Stampers Versalog, seems to have shut down. Fortunately, I had this cute little bit of advice in my computer.

Here are four more pages from the book. In total, there are 16 sides with various poems and stamped images -- including one page on which she can insert a photo of her Abby Rose.

Many of the pages had patterned paper from a wonderful DCWV pad called Nana's Nursery. The page on the left uses paper from that mat stack. Most of the stamps were from a Fiskars clear stamp set, along with several other stamps I had gotten at a garage sale -- the names of which I have no idea. The main colors were Stampin' Up's Pretty in Pink and Certainly Celery.
