Well it's not Tutorial Tuesday, but we do have a mini tutorial for you today from Kirsty.

"I recently hosted a baby shower for my sister. I made this little guest book for each guest to write a message to her and her baby, and for my sister to keep as a special little memento of her baby shower. Knowing that the new baby will be a girl was extra fun, as I was able to indulge my love for all things pink!!!"

Products Used:

Bazzill Basics Paper:

1-128E Pinkini


S5-025 Labels 17 

Other Materials Used:



Step 1.
Cut your sheets of card stock into rectangles that will fit the size of your chosen die. I cut mine to suit the largest of the labels 17 die. Pre-cutting the Card made this job a little quicker and a little more economical paper-wise. I ensured that there was at least one page per guest with a few spare pages for mistakes or surprise guests!

Step 2.
Run your pages through the amazing Grand Calibur machine with your chosen die. I found that I could cut through 2 or 3 pages in one go.

Step 3.
Using a slightly sturdier card (I used some of the card that my last month's order came packed in!!) cut two cover pages.

Step 4.
Paint and glitter the edges of your covers if desired. Allow to dry.

Step 5.
Punch holes in each page. Use some jump rings to hold your album together, and decorate the front cover!

Just a quick reminder that we will be celebrating Christmas in July here at DownUnder Direct Inspirations.  The design team have been getting in the Christmas Spirit a little early this year, so from tomorrow we will have a week dedicated to Christmas projects. 

Thanks for stopping by today.
