1  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Discussion and Questions / Baby Book -- with an edge on: February 05, 2006 07:11:55 AM

Hey craftsters...I'm in the need for some creative mojo.

My brother and sister-in-law are having their first baby towards the beginning of April. We know that they'll be having a girl, and the her name will be Savannah Alexandra. I've been asked to make a "baby book" to present to them at her baby shower the first weekend in March. I live out of state, so have to have it mailed by the last week in February.

Now, Rachelle (my S-I-L) is a "hip mamma" type. She has a witty, if dry sense of humor, and while she loves being at home and in charge of the domestic sphere, her style has a delicious tongue in cheek "edge" to it -- like Mrs. Cleaver meets Melissa Etheridge! Wink Anyway, I think her baby book should be the same, and I'm looking for some inspiration.

I've started trolling for fun quotes and page headings, but haven't come up with a suitable format. I thought about altering a baby's board book, but am not sure that's the look I want either. I usually make my own journals, know about all the acid-free rules, and know that I want to include stamp carvings and faux postage. Other than that, I don't have a clue. What would you do to create a baby book that will turn heads?

Thanks for your help!

Blue skies,
-K

Just a couple of pics showing off some of my recent work. Enjoy, and feel free to comment as you like....

Oh -- don't laugh at my "varied" backgrounds and Photoshop playing.  Embarrassed These were taken before my proper
displays came, and I was also experimenting with a new camera. Everything else is fair game for feedback.
