Go Duckies!!!!

Welcome to:

Go Ducks!

I am chronically late with baby gifts--I know it is so bad... My goal is to acknowledge the new baby before they graduate from college LOL! I am somewhat proud that this is a baby gift for a little baby boy just a few months old!!!

I found this mini album on Pinterest and the video on You Tube. Very fun!!! I did use SU! cardstock and I think it is too heavy for this mini-or I need to adjust the gussets to be a wee bit wider.  I would suggest maybe Bazzil cardstock as the perfect weight to use.   Because my cardstock was thicker, I had to use ribbon to close this little mini album, otherwise I would have used magnet closures. Each pocket has a square photo mat that pulls out.

I actually envision this mini as an  Oregon Duck "Gwamma" brag book-imagine that!?!  I stamped the Duck In Tow stamp several times and used the complete image on the front, and then cut single duckies to add inside.

I cut the letters and little feet with my Silhouette.  The designer paper is Teresa Collins Chic Bebe Boy.

I hope you enjoyed this little duckie project!

Please take a few minutes and check out the Great Impressions Stamps Blog and join our polka dot and pastel challenge-you could be a winner!

See you next week!

This is sooo cute Sue ... what a wonderful addition to a baby gift package. My neighbour is expecting her first baby so I will be making one of these for her. Thanks so much for sharing your idea and for producing such a good tutorial.

Wooo! Sue, Thank you so much! You have come through with the perfect project. My 2nd Grandson will be announcing himself in the 1st 2 weeks of May and I have been racking my brain for a project to use the baby dies that I won from a blogger. This gives me lots of space to play with. Thank you darlin sweet friend. Hugs Lori
