Baby Boy Cover for CTMH 3 ring chipboard binder

I can only laugh at myself... I thought I had ordered the new CTMH 3 ring chipboard binder (5 1/2" x 8 1/2") from the Summer Idea Book, but yesterday when I finally got my way-so-very-delayed-been-waiting-like-forever-for-it personal order I had placed, I realized that I hadn't even ordered it. LOL (((blush)))

I made this for the front cover of the little ablum in anticipation of having the binder to attach it to and well, I guess it has to wait a little bit longer. I wanted to work on the inside pages, too, so I guess I have to see if I can find out the dimensions for the inside. If I keep screwing up, I will have everything completed and it should make for a quick project to put together when it does arrive, though! ;)

I got my inspiration for this from a card in the May/June 2009 issue of Paper Crafts, where she used felt and stitched square pieces of patterned papers onto it. Adorable! It gives it a real quilted feel. In case you can't read the words on the MyStickease, it says: A baby is teddy bears, rattles, and pins, meals at midnight, giggles and grins. It's easy to read in person, but didn't photograph very well.

A good friend of mine is expecting in August and she recently found out that she's having a boy. (NO PEEKING - YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE!!! lol) So when I do get this project done, I'm planning on giving this to her as a gift for her baby shower.

Oh, so much (I want) to do and never enough time! I swear that's my biggest complaint in life! :)

What I used (all CTMH unless otherwise noted):
Snips & Snails Level 2 and MyStickease (retired)
White Daisy Ricrac
Sweet Leaf, Heavenly Blue and Buttercup buttons
Magnolia White Acrylic Paint
Create-A-Shade Paint
Heavenly Blue re-inker
Paint brush
DE heart from Dazzling Die-Cuts
Chipboard Wings (Tim Holz)
White felt (Walmart)
Sewing machine (Kenmore)
Pinking shears (other)

So darling! Dimensions for the 4 x 6 album:

Front and Back Covers: 8.5" x 5.5"
Spine: approx. 1"
Tabbed Dividers (there are 5): 7.5" x 5" (without tab). Tab is another 1/2"

There are no page protectors but you could either use our 6 photo pages cut up or the new flip flaps. HTH! Let me know if you need more info.

Oh, Karen, thank you so much! This is perfect! And I like the idea of making my own page protectors... hmmm, you've really got me thinking... :D
