Baby Boy Album - Graphic 45 by Kristy Stevens

Hello again my lovelies!

This week I want to share with you a project I have made for a family member who found out on Tuesday she was having a baby boy, well as we are a family of a lot of girls I very excitedly rushed to my craft room and came up with the below little beauty in blue.

My inspiration came from the Graphic 45 Mother goose paper called Little Boy Blue,
 This paper has a bunch of nursery rhymes and journaling spots which I bound together with some cardstock to create an album.

I used a piece of plain cardstock 11 1/2 inches by 7 1/2 inches to wrap my chipboard which was cut at 6 1/2 by 4 1/2 inches with a 1 inch piece in between which I had punched with my Bind it all.

I then layered another piece of cardstock inked with Tim Holtz Tea Dye and pierced out the holes for my Binding.

To make my background I have used my blending tool loaded with Chipped Sapphire Distress ink along with my Prima Stars Elements Stencil, and I just love how it turned out.

So here I have taken some of the Twinkle Little Star paper and run it through with the Tim Holtz Baroque die, and double distressed with ink.
Then using some of the the left overs I punched both sides with the Martha Stewart Doily Lace punch and added a Pearl String for some interest.

These images were fussy cut from the Nursery Rhymes paper which is just gorgeous and I have layered these up on popdots

Next I added some pennants cut from the paperline and used a rub on from Craft Creations along with some  DCWV chipboard letters to make my title.
To make the rub on blue I just went in with my Distress marker with no hassles.

The last thing I did was add my flower arrangement, I have used a bunch of goodies here including lots of Prima flowers, Buttons from Scotties and I have also fussy cut a lot of the flowers from the paper line too.

Well that's it for this week and the outside of my album, Please come back and visit us next Friday and I will show you what I have done with the inside.

Till then I hope you all have a crafty weekend.

  1. I love this cover Kristy looking forward to seeing the insides :) awesome tfs Tasha

  2. Hello Kristy
    It looks wonderful, no doubt that G45 is the paper to fussy -cut, all the elements you have added look gorgeous and make for a beautiful Album Cover for this little one when he arrives.
    It has wonderful dimension and interest, and like Tasha I am eager to see how you create the pages.

  3. Ha my future Grandsons Album. Im also interested to see what you'll produce next. Won't it be strange making things for a boy. Ah well suppose I'll just have to buy you more art supplies in blue from now on...
    Your biggest fan.....D
