Bloggers Challenge - Labor Day Onesie mini scrapbook



This week's challenge is fittingly in honor of Labor Day. I have been dying to use this Onesie die that I got to make a mini scrapbook, so this was the perfect opportunity.

I used the white cardboard that comes in the back of designer papers for the front and back covers, to make it a little sturdier. Just used a glue stick to attach cardstock to both sides of each cover, then covered the fronts with the gingham paper.

The inside pages are just cardstock, with the gingham paper overlay. I cut the arms out, so the pink sleeves would show through and it wouldn't be so boring.

Bind it at the bottom, add some ribbon, and you're ready to put a few pictures in for a new Mom!

Stamps: So Many Scallops

Cardstock: Pretty in Pink, pink gingham paper

Ink: Pretty in Pink Craft ink (showed up better than Classic)

Other: Scallop and 1 3/8" circle punches, Bind-it-All, white coils, White and Pink grosgrain ribbon, white gel pen, glue stick
