WOYWW151 and more baby books...

Now that I have a recipe for a baby book (see last Weds. post), I'm able to face all the books that need to be worked on. We are in a veritable baby boom right now, from the looks of it!

This one is for my neighbor's little bundle. Working with all this pink is joyful... *smile*

For What's on Your Workspace Wednesday (hosted weekly on Ms. Julia's blog), I'm showing you the state of my kitchen table. With a project like this, it's nice to spread out.

Once all the pieces were cut, it was easy to assemble quickly. In order to make this album less bulky than my recent creations, I dispensed with the chipboard embellishments this time. I punched my alphabet letters and then ran them through my little Xyron X machine (seen peeking out of the lower right corner.)

Two different types of ABC prompts were presented to you in my previous blog post. This time I printed the prompts in the only pink that my computer offered (I'll have to fine tune that one day). It did the trick this time.

And here is the lovely pad that makes this all possible. For a project like this, I love pads that have punch out dies that coordinate with the paper.

Check out Julia's BLOG for more fun workspaces this (and every) Wednesday.

Oh, and I almost forgot to toot my own horn.... I was published on p. 91 of the Apr/May/June issue of the Stampers Sampler. Woo hoo! Let me let you in on a little secret. If you use Unity stamps and you get published in a magazine, they reward you with $25 and a free stamp kit of up to $29 in value. Isn't that a super incentive! Check out the Unity SITE to see their cool stamps. I'm just sayin'...

Mother's Day is coming up so I should be posting a card sometime soon.....

Have a nice day!

The baby project looks great. I've usually stayed away from the books that have the punch outs but you've opened my eyes..... heee

Wow you are being productive. I really need to restart my scrapping ... Been in a real off mood for it and yet really love it when I get to it. Maybe I should challenge myself to do a page for next weeks Woyww?!
Thanks for sharing, and love the card too!
