amberellison and I made this book for my sister. She's having a boy soon. We LOVE this Crate Paper Cowboy paper. I got the kit and it came with great strips of paper, cut outs, stickers, etc.
This is a covered Sarabinder. The book includes 4 cds (one for each 3 months) to hold digital pictures, a calendar for each month of the baby's first year, a page to journal checkups and stats, "look what i did this month" and "mommy's thoughts". A pocket at the end to hold miscellaneous momentos. Sarabinders sells cd pockets, folders and tabs inserts for them. I just covered the pockets for these.
Wow,, what a Great gift !!
I'd LOVE to make one of these for my friend who is excpecting her first in May.
Do you have a website that you can SHARE as to WHERE to get these sarabinders from.
Thanks in advance

I got my sarabinder and the inserts (which i just covered) from www.paperwishes.com
Their shipping was SLOW but maybe i just got them at a bad time.
OH, one hint for these...we tried to cover the spine with paper and it cracked at the seams!
Then I decided to look in to it and the website for sarabinders recommends painting with acrylic paint or using ink to do the spine.
NEXT time I will certainly do that!!!
I made my calendars in Publisher then copied in to word. Just in case you wonder that!
Thanks for the compliments. Amber did an awesome job on the cover! WE worked together on it which was great!
