I made this 6"x12" Zoo album for Lily's 4th birthday using Teresa Collins scalloped covers (they were white, so I painted them a nice jungle green) and used the bind-it-all. Teresa has thoughtfully included 6"x12" page protectors to her line which makes creating albums for little ones with oft-sticky fingers much more practical.
This is the cover. I'll post a few of the pages.

P.S I would REALLY love the pitcher for my collection but here's where the depression sets in...they cost over $500 IF you can find one. Hahah...pretty though, isn't it?

First, let me just say I am a HUGE fan of the incredibly talented and creative Mel McCarthy of http:melstampz.blogspot.com. She generously posts free templates, detailed tutorials and witty commentary on her blog. When I saw the adorable baby card she created using a Squigglefly digi-stamp (available at http://www.squigglefly.com/shop/baby-bathing), I knew I had to give it a try. Mel probably could single handedly keep the embossing powder, gesso and embroidery floss industries in business. Do yourself a favor and check out her blog!
I used Prismacolor pencils rather than Copic markers and did the inket embossing technique on vellum, but I'm pretty happy with the result. The card is on its way in the mail today with a gift for a family member in Texas. Sure would love to be at the shower when she opens it. Thanks to Mel for all the inspiration not to mention the detailed instructions. I had a blast making it!
