Girlie Mini Onsie Album

My sister asked me to created a onsie album for her to give to a girlfriend that's due within the next couple of weeks and this is what I came up with.  Now before I get started on filling you in on all the deets I have to give credit to IslandV over at Scrap Innovations because she enabled me to create my first one and a couple of the pages I used in this one I scraplifted from her.  So if you haven't checked her blog out before you really should......

Once again I used my Sizzix onsie die for the pages.  Don't have Sizzix?  No problem....if you have the New Arrival cartridge that is.  Just use the onsie cut from New Arrival cut at 5.5 inches and you'll have the onsie base for all your pages.  Be sure to cut your pages from chipboard to give the album a sturdy base.

I also used A Child's Year, New Arrival, Baby Steps, and Accent Essentials for my other cuts.

For the first pages pictured I used Accent Essentials for the scalloped oval  -originally a circle that I skewed in Design Studio and cut at 3.5 x 2.5 inches. 

From Baby Steps I cut the bear at 2" and the baby's head (from the baby in the bathtub) at 1.5".  I cut two of the baby's head, flipping the second one and hiding all the facial features for the backside of the baby's head.  I then cut a piece of paper 3 x 2.5", used my corner rounding punch and ran it through my printer for the verbiage.  The blanket was made using a piece of double sided paper cut at 6.5 x 3" folded in half from the long side.  I then cut a slit from the top down on the front side, folded the edges back and glued along the side edges only. 

For the baby crib page I used Baby Steps and cut the crib at 2.5".  The mat I used was cut at 3 x 2.75".  I then glued the mat down and then adhered the crib on top of the mat gluing along the bottom and side edges only so that a picture could be slipped in.  (Next time I create this page I will pop dot it some for easier access though)

For the next set of pages I made the following cuts:

New Arrival - Stork, Baby, Bottles and Moon cuts all at 1.5"

Baby Steps - Little Girl cut at 1.5", words baby steps, highchair, food jars all cut at 2"

A Child's year for the mom holding a baby cut at 3"

Accent Essentials for the other mats cut at 3 x 2.5"

The Giraffe and baby bib are stickers that I found in my stash.






To put it all together I added 3/16" or 4.7mm eyelets and used 1" loose leaf binder rings.
