Zutter Baby Blog Hop

One of the Zutter Design Team members, Sophie, had a baby so we are celebrating with a Blog Hop. All the details can be found on the Bind-It-All Blog .



I love to read and my kids love to read too so for my project I wanted to make a little mini album of favorite children's books. To make it more special for Sophie I asked all the design team members what their favorite children's book were when they were growing up and added them in too.

For the covers I used the acrylic cover in 8x8 and cut it in half so I would have 2 8x4 pieces for the front and back.

The binding is the brown 3/4" owires which is one of my favorites and I use it quite often.


Leave a comment on my blog about your favorite children's book and I will pick a winner to receieve one package EACH of baby blue and baby pink 3/4" owire and a selection of Cover-Alls.




Here's a list of all the blogs and more chances to win!

Eileen Bergen said...

I know I'm too late for the contest, but just want to let you know how much I love your little album.

My favorite early childhood book was "Dr. Dan the Bandage Man". I loved it because it came with a bunch of bandages attached inside. How weird is that? lol.
