Today I'm highlighting Very Vintage Labels 18 along with sentiments from some older sets.
Many of you know that I am the proud grand-aunt of 6 month old Landon - he's been featured here on my blog several times since he arrived in Sept! We have had quite a snowy winter this year in Massachusetts and so Landon has acquired many winter hats! And of course we have many pics of Landon in his many winter hats!
Hence - the creation of this little coaster photo book - of Landon in his hats! Just click on each pic for a closer view!
Half Pint Heroes. The book is made from 4"x4" light weight coasters, covered in Basic Grey Archaic papers.
Free Spirit Sentiments.
Labels 18 Nestability dies yet - so I just hand cut the outside edge on this frame and cut the inside out with my exacto knife! This cute little hat was my son's when he was a baby - and now we're 'recycling' it with Landon - and can you see those cute tiny mittens on him? His Aunt Chrstie knit them for him!! She's expecting her first baby, a boy, in June so this hat may get recycled yet again! The 'cute' sentiment is from Half Pint Heroes.
Free Spirit Sentiments. I hand cut the outside of this label and used my Oval Nestabilitie to cut out the center (it fits just right!)
Another frame that I hand cut and used an oval Nestability to cut out the inside - then I used that oval for my sentiment! which is from Oven Fresh Gingerbread Joy. I just love his yummy striped pants in this pic!
Free Spirit - Sentiments.
FYI - I printed my photos on white card stock and cut around the edges with deckeled edge scissors from SU to look the way photos used to come when you had them developed (are you old enough to remember those??!) I stapled the ribbons on before adhering the patterned paper on the backs so the back of the staple wouldn't show! And, of course, adult supervision is needed if a little tyke is looking at this book as they could rip off the buttons and put them in their mouths! I punched the holes in the corners with my Cropadile and the book ring is from Staples.
I hope you enjoyed my little photo book today and that it might inspire you to create one yourself??!!
