kitty cats' baby album . . .

g and i were talking one day and i realized that he'd never seen baby pictures of his kitties.  after all, they were born the year before he was.  i decided i wanted to make him a baby book  of his furry friends and dug out the negatives for their baby pictures and had them reprinted. 

the march antiquarian kit was the inspiration for creating (there is actually literally ONE left in stock).  this mini is made almost entirely from that kit with a few leftover bits added in from the other kits (mostly jenni's magpie release plus her new pockets, tags, stickers, and chipboard buttons). 

i scored the blue bingo card from the antiquarian kit and then reinforced the spine with washi tape.  i then layered all the vintage papers and taped some of those together with washi tape.  finally, i sewed all the papers together in the middle with a piece of cotton thread. 

it's a tiny sweet little book.  me and g love it.  the kitties like playing with all the loose strings.


  1. Aw, what a sweet idea! I love the different papers and layers in this mini, not to mention the kitty pics! This totally reminds me of "Kittens Inspired by Kittens" ( Ha! :)

  2. WOW Doris...that is SO cute. I love all the details, how you used the check and the edges, the tickets, tags and that cute little kitty so cute. Now I want a new kitty to make a kitty sb like that...ol. Maybe I could pull out baby pictures and do a baby book of my grandson. hummm...
