Vintage Chipboard Baby Shower Guest Book

I just can't thrown scraps away...paper, left over ribbon, stickers, embellies...anything. I have a hard time throwing anything away. There is soup every week in my house. LOL :) That's another post in my other blog. :)

anyway, I used some of my left over Acid Free white cardstock and some gorgeous vintage papers and created this soooo cute book. At first, my idea was to provide a place for a new Mom to write down things about her Baby Girl.

How many of you that have children can remember when they began teething, when did they first smiled, or said Ma-ma? I always ask Grandmothers what did they do in certain situations when their children were little, or how did they children behave or what happened when... and they can't remember. So, the idea was to provide a cute little notebook that the Mom could write down those special little things that happen, and because the papers are Acid Free if she wanted to she could turn it into a Scrapbook and add photos. The book is perfect for wallet size pictures.

But then again, it could also be used as a sign in Guest book at a Baby shower. All your friends and ladies could write their advice and blessings down during the event.

The book measures 3.5" x 6.5". The actual white pages measure 2.5"x 5.5". I have added layers of embellishments, ruffles, stitching and stamping. Each page has been hand stamped and makes a gorgeous one of a kind vintage style keepsake. Both front and back covers are made of chipboard for a sturdy finish.

Here are the photos.

Here are some more photos of how the book is held together and the stamping on the pages.

The book is for sale in my Etsy shop. Enjoy and God bless, :)
