Baby Book Memory Book

I had my Baby Book Class this weekend...the ladies loved their books. This book is just like the Baby Girl Book, just using the Rock-A-Bye Baby Boy Simply Scrappin' Kit instead...I ended up liking the Boy book even more than the girl book...the colors are just so darn cute! The last ("I'm One") page has a pocket for journaling, and a photo can go right on top of the pocket. This is such a fun book to make...only half of a Simply Scrappin' Kit too! One of the gals that came made her book for here baby that's only a few weeks away from being born. Key Dimensions for this book: The book is 8.5" x 6". For the cover, the Tangerine Tango strip is 2 3/4" tall. The ribbon won't go through the Bind-It-All machine, so just add it after binding with some Sticky Strip. Birth Page:Tangerine is 3/4", the chicks are 2" and the Old Olive is 3/4". For months 1 &2, cut the paper into a 1 inch strip and use the Scallop Edge the thin strip and reverse to have some contrast. Months 3 &4: Tangerine Tango is 1/2" and the chicks are about 1/2" as well and the Bashful Blue is 3/4". Months 5 &6 use the self adhesive die cut strip along the bottom and add a 1" strip of the striped blue designer paper. Months 7&8: Old Olive is 1" and the Stars/Circles Designer paper is 3/4". Months 9&10: Tangerine Tango is 1 1/4" and the chicks paper is 1". Months 11&12: Stars/Circles paper is 1" and the Olive Star paper is 1/4". For the "I'm One" page: Chicks paper is about 2" x 6", the pocket is 3 1/2" x 4"...use the Scallop Edge Punch along the top, then adhere Sticky Strip to the sides and bottom only. The journaling will go on a sheet that's 4 1/4" x 2 3/4". The Old Olive strip on this page is 2" thick. I used the Jumbo Eyelets for the journaling sheet. Hope this was helpful!
