Salute VMI

A friend has a son at VMI so I made a word book for her. I changed my style a bit to accommodate a more non kiddie theme. I added a transparency window and did a transfer technique to transfer the lettering. The book  has two sets of pockets for tags and journalingand beautiful complementary paper. Enjoy.

Introducing wordbook “Sebastian”

In early summer I decided to make a wordbook for a friend for her new baby. I researched the meaning of the name, the different spellings and she picked her color theme. Then all I had to do was pull it all together. Because I try to make each wordbook unique even though I keep some components, I’m always happily surprised at what I come up with. Sometimes I have to scrap an idea or let a page “marinate” for a while creatively. Enjoy!

Wordbook Mini Album Danica is Here!

I recently got a request from a friend to make a wordbook for a baby shower gift. Boy was I happy to oblige since making them is my new passion! There are six steps I take to accomplish the making of one of these cute creations:

  1. Word, theme, color scheme, size
  2. Format letter layout on software program
  3. Pick the designer papers and cut the chipboard pages to size
  4. Use paper die cut machine to cut out name letters
  5. Trace letters onto chipboard
  6. Cut off excess chipboard, glue paper down

Word. It’s A Wordbook!

I had no idea what chipboard, a word book, a shape book or a mini album was before I started this. You betcha I know now. The adventure continues!
