Frosted Design Journal Tags Challenge

Oh baby!! 
Yup- this cute little baby book took me quite a while, not to mention loads of cuts with the cricut. 
This week at Frosted Desgins, the challenge is to use tags. 
Many of the DT members are using products from our sponsor this week,


If you have not discovered these products yet, you are in for a surprise. They are awesome and make the greatest little albums, keepsakes, and more. Not to mention, they are very reasonably priced. 

Now let me show you the finished book page by page.

Page one- cover is acrylic for protection

I made this little book thinking of all the first things that happen during a baby's first year that a Mom and Dad might want to record and take pictures of .
First off most of the cuts came from either Baby Steps, New Arrival or Storks' Delivery Cartridges.

The stork once and then re-cut it again by flipping it so when I attached it to the acrylic cover, I had one on the inside cover too, mainly to cover up the adhesive for the first one. But in the end it looks like the stork is flying over the carriage when the book is closed.
The banners are from Just a note cartridge and Stork and Carriage are from New Arrival. The Letters on the tabs are from CM Stork's Delivery

Pages 2-3
On these pages, you will see my little tag with a sentiment from My Pink Stamper.
The crawling boy, duck pin, and  Big Boy title all from Baby Steps
Train is from New Arrival and the frame is from Lacy Labels
Rattle is from CM Stork's Delivery

Pages 4-5
Now it is bath time. Baby in tub, wobble toy is from Baby Steps
Giraffe is from Cm Stork's Delivery
Large yellow duck and Bath time Title is from New Arrival
Tag is from CM tag punch

Pages 6-7

These next page a are busy just like a busy little boy that has started to walk and play with his toys.
Tag is from CM tag punch

Airplane and car are from B is for Boy

Little boy with balloon is from Baby Steps
The clothes line and clothes are Karen Foster Stickers
Page 8 or back page

The back page I wanted to keep simple since it is the back and did not want anything to bulky back here in case it might get damaged when handled. So I made a basic pocket for a to slip in a mini record sheet into it. The record sheet can be a listing of dates for first steps, first tooth, first haircut, etc.

The little Man title is from CM Stork's Delivery

Most of the stripe and pattern paper is from a Baby Stack that I picked up a few years ago on clearance called Marcella by K and Company

I hope you enjoyed this little project and take the time to head over to My Monster Creations to see what other things she has.

Also, don't forget to check out the other DT projects as well at Frosted Designs and then link up your project. I would love to see what you do.

I am also posting this over at  Scrappin with Cricut - no cards or layouts challenge.
