hi, back with a new journal for the "Momma To- Be" that i have listed in my etsy shop today:
"mother to-be" cover
this journal cover was created from a 1917 storybook "A Child's Garden of Verses" by Robert Lewis Stevenson and measures 6.25" X 9.25" with 50+ pages which include a combination of vellum, lined writing, sketch, linen, and watercolor papers, on which you may journal, sketch, draw, paint, and glue. there is a trinket cluster attached to the o-wire which has 3 little charms attached: a fairy, a treble clef and a moon/star.
an original page attached to the front
divider 1- book plate page for your name and date
the papers i used are from prima's double-sided card-stock "pixie glen" collection. so very cute, with soft baby blues, pinks, greens and yellows. there is a bottom pocket with a vintage baby shower card and a vintage lace pocket attached to the front.there is also vintage seam binding sewn with a vintage button. the name plate is a vintage postcard image.
backside of divider 1
there are 2 bottom pockets here trimmed in vintage lace, seam binding with little pearl beads and cotton thread. tucked into the pockets are 4 appointment cards to carry with you to the doctors office so that you can record the date, your weight, fetal heartbeat and any questions that you may have and a group of 5 pages of lined paper(front and back) held together with a little "duck" hat pin. the facing page after each divider is a vellum page. each divider page is a full page pocket with a top opening, i have clipped a circle in some of the dividers as seen here, other openings are just along the top edge.
with 1 bottom pocket and 5 appointment cards tucked in over the top of a larger double-sided tag with a vintage storybook page showing on the front and backside. there is a little treble clef clip that holds 3 little journaling cards held together with a tiny gold brad. each page in this journal is hand inked and stamped.
backside of divider 2
2 side pockets sewn to the page with vintage seam binding and a velvet page tab.
this circa 1930's bingo card holds 2 tags the front tag is for a list of chosen girl names...
and the back, a tag that will hold chosen boy names.
has 4 little pockets holding 4 more appointment cards. the front of the bottom pocket has some paper lace with a journaling tag attached to create a pocket which holds another tiny vintage baby shower card.
backside of divider 3
with a bottom pocket and more appointment cards and a little flower cutout attached to the front to create another pocket with a vintage baby gift card slipped in. there is a little metal bird brad attached to the center bottom of this page.
tucked betwen the sketch papers is a vellum envelope with a vintage seambinding closure, which is attached to the o-wire with little metal rings.
there are 3 pockets on this last divider page with a flower cutout forming a small pocket on the front of the very bottom pocket with a printed vintage announcement card slipped into it so you can record your new babys' information. the top has a curled back edge opening with a little bow to resemble a baby night gown.
backside of divider 4
with 3 little handmade coin envelopes to hold any little treasure you might have, a lock of hair or baby bracelet perhaps?
