so here is a new journal made from - what ? graphic 45 card-stock of course! lol. it's a baby journal for your little girls' first year. well you can use it anyway you like, that is just what i had in mind when i created it. i will be listing it on my etsy today when i have finished here. the little card-stock images are from"heartwarming vintage" collection from crafty secrets. jess and i picked them up when we went to the "ckc" in seattle. i love their goods!
this 4.5" X 6.75" "petit bebe" journal has 50+ pages which include a combination of vellum, lined writing, drawing, linen, and card-stock papers, on which you may journal, sketch, draw, paint, and glue.
the covers were created from a 1949 "merchant of venice" book which I
have altered with papers and a "heartwarming" image of a momma and
the inside cover has a vintage baby card used as a pocket with a printed
vintage postcard baby announcement tucked in. and the name/date card
is an actual vintage announcement card.
back of name/date page
a vintage baby card attached as a pocket to the pocket. Each section
after each divider is followed by a sheet of baby pink vellum.
the correspondence page
2 smaller pockets one above the other on this divider will hold smaller
items. i have slipped a couple of little tags from "heartwarming" under a
back of correspondence page
with the front of the baby card from the inside cover forming a pocket on
the front of 2 other pockets.
this is a full page pocket, with 2 pockets on the front and wide silk
ribbon sewn to the edge of this divider.
