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.
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!
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:
- Word, theme, color scheme, size
- Format letter layout on software program
- Pick the designer papers and cut the chipboard pages to size
- Use paper die cut machine to cut out name letters
- Trace letters onto chipboard
- Cut off excess chipboard, glue paper down
Enjoy the slide:
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!
