 All the projects I made with the Sweet baby collection

There is a mini album inside the stroller.
Alittle teddy bear sitting on the side and a rattle and pacifier hanging over .

decorated the hood with strips of laces and it can be folded down.
Umbrella made from cheese cloth , seam binding and laces.

On the handle there is hanging a freshen up baby bag with diapers and so inside.

Made the cover of the album as a bed with pillow and duvet.
The baby tag can be taken out.

All the pages are decorated with laces from Wild Orchid Crafts except for one

Inside the 1. page
Cut out the outside border from a 12 x 12 paper and used it for pockets.
All the fussy cut outs are covered with Claudine Hellmuth multi matte to mahe them more durable. with some acetate tags from Sizzix. Used white paint dabber around the tags so they show more up.

On the right side there is a fold out page with a pop out stork from Cottage cuts.
Show how to make it in the video.

3. page
Fussy cut out the stork and it is a holder for a tag. On the other side there is a banner made from Lala Land die and the letters are cut out from a Martha Stewart die.

Flap opens up ans some more place for photos and journaling.

Door and window die from Joy Crafts leafs from a Cheery Lynn die.Label punch from Stamping up

There is foil tape on the back so they are easy to form.

children's wear cut outs make a great banner. Cottage cuts die.
The stroller is from Memory box.

Also a flip up on this page.
Frame from Memory box.

 On the back side of the album is place for a large photo


I started with a 8 inch round circle and drew the stroller from the shape.


Cut the pieces out 2 times and glued together. Used 1 mm. chipboard.
The bottom piece is 3 2/2 x 5 1/2.
The  front and the back pieces are 3 1/2 x the measurements on the sides

Used flourish dies from Sizzix and Tim Holtz gears. Cut off thee outside so they get a round shape and offset them. Glued 4 chipboard 1mm together on all pieces.

Use the dies you have to make suspension and handles

For the top I cut 4 - 1/4 inch 1mm. chipboard strips.

Bend them a bit larger for each.
The smallest is bend at 4 - 3 5/8 and cut at 11 5/8
Go a bit larger for each strip.

You can also just attach them together like the picture and make a round shape.

Poke a hole through all 4 and attach to the stroller
Now it is ready to decorate with paper and laces before attach the wheels and flourish  :-)

Measurement for the mini album.
1. page 7 1/2 x 3 1/4
go down 1/2 inc for each page. Smallest 5 inch. All the pages are 3 1/4 wide
Attach with hinges cut 1 1/2  and score at 1/2 and 1
I backed the hinges with strips cut out of Tyvek envelope and glued them together with Xyron sticker maker.
To attach the hinges to the pages Use some stong glue. I like to use Score tape..

Now the album is ready to be decorated .
Hope this is inspiring and helpful :-)
