Caressa's Boardbook for Grace

My daughter-in-law has a friend who just had a beautiful daughter, so she made this book for her. Caressa did most of the work - I just "taught" her how to use the Cricut and put together the paper piecings. I think she did a great job. I don't have SCAL and the deep-cut blades/housing to cut the books with the letters welded to them, so we just cut the letters and adhered them to the far right side of the page. We mainly used Storybook, New Arrival, and Winnie the Pooh carts for the book. Also, the paper we used is from the Nana's Nursery Baby Girl DCWV stack from Hobby Lobby. Caressa thinks the Zutter Bind-It-All tool/machine is awesome! It really does make the books look more professional/neater - in my opinion.

The font is just perfect - don't you think so?

That litte Pooh peeking over the edge is so cute!

When we first began piecing the Eeore, I thought it would never look like it should. However, as you can see, it turned out just right. It just takes a little patience and manipulating of the pieces - as well as constantly looking at the pic in the book that comes with the cart.

The addition of the clear/glittery bubbles is adorable!

Little Piglet is just amazing! It is on the page opposite the bath tub - hence - the umbrella.

Tigger was another piece that took some patience and use of the book. He is the most precious addition to the book! He is so fun!

Don't you just love him!

This back page is for a little family history if the mother chooses to use it in that manner.

What do you think of Caressa's first attempt at boardbooks and using the Cricut?!?

Check back soon for more boardbooks, cards, and an altered project.
