In celebration of Sage's arrival, the Zutter Zisters are having a Bouncing Baby Blog Hop!!
For this special occasion the Zisters each created a special Baby related item....I can't wait to see their creations!!!
I had tons of fun with my project....remember when the internet was a new thing and AOL used to bombard us with disks.....well I was able to get my hands on one of those metal boxes and used it to create a "Baby's First" case and book....
DreamKuts (I love this for creating pages in minis!!)
Graphic 45 Baby to Bride paper
Claudine Hellmuth's Studio Gesso & Multi Medium
Kaiser Flowers and Pearls
and I can't forget the AMAZING DISTRESS IT ALL!!!
I began by painting the box with Gesso, then mixed paints together to get the color I wanted.
I cut out a piece of paper to fit the cover and the letters BABY from the G45 paper and Distressed them and adhered them to the cover with Claudine's Multi Medium.
I then created a flower to accent the cover. It consist of a hand cut fabric flower, a 2 7/8" scallop circle and a 2 1/4" scallop circle, a "Floriano"flower (McGill punch) and some Kaiser flowers.
I used a template I had and cut a flower out of fabric as the background. I then took the (2) scalloped circles and cut into them to create petals, and man handled them for depth. I bent the petals on the "Floriano" for even more depth, adhered them all together and accented them with Distress Stickles...an added bonus.....I took (3) Kaiser flowers, folded them in the center and adhered them to the center of my flower to create this "cluster" look. Accented it the flower with ribbon and adhered it to the cover!!
To create the inside mini, I used my DreamKut Machine....which cut flawless pages....all the same size...OH THE JOY!!! Ran the pages....a group at a time, through the Distress It All....bound them with my Bind it All....and there you have it....a cute little book to place her "FIRST" pictures in....
To check out the other Zister project....here is a list to their blogs....and don't forget to stop by the Bind it All Blog..........
