Braves Boardbook

Well, I'm at it again! Another boardbook! I just love making these things. If you haven't tried making one, you should give it a shot. You may be like me and become hooked.

This book is for another teacher at my school. She wanted a book that would allow her sister the opportunity to showcase a few of her favorite family pics of their adventures to see the Braves in action.

Here is the front cover - designed of course by my daughter, Aymee.

This close-up of the "B" has the Braves logo stickled in red. Amyee also made the logos for me.

The front of the R has a pocket for special journaling. I also chose the "A Child's Year" cart for the ball/bat, and the "Everyday Paperdolls" for the glove. I used those two carts throughout the book.

The back of the A and front of the V provide ample space for photos. I purchased that cute baseball paper at Hobby Lobby. I have used it on the remaining pages in this book along with the red rickrack trim. As you can tell, I used the Everyday Paperdoll cart for the baseball player and the helmets (for her son). The "A's" were cut using the Plantin Schoolbook cart.

For the back of the "V", I used the EDPD cart again to cut that cute little girl (for one of her daughters). I also used it to cut the hot dog and the cola. Red stickles were used to highlight the images.

For the front of the "E", I used that cart again to cut another girl (for the other daughter). She also has a cola in one of her hands. Those paperdolls are so much fun to make. I love that cart. It is very versatile.


The back of the "E" and front of the "S" features the title, "Take me Out to the Ballgame." It was cut with the Learning Curve cart. I also used the "A Child's Year" cart for the dad/boy & dad/girl images.


The back of the "S" features the logo. It also provides space for photos/journaling.
I hope you enjoyed visiting my blog and viewing this new boardbook. Please take time to leave me a comment/suggestion.
Have a great day,
Carol :)
