I received a custom request just before Christmas through my Etsy store, Pressed Clovers, for a book to keep all the photos with Santa throughout the years. I loved this idea!! Imagine watching your child grow year by year as you continue to fill your Santa book!
The customer's pictures were all 5" x 7" so the mats needed to be just a bit larger to make the pictures stand out from the background. My books are usually 8" x 8" so I knew it would be a tight fit with little room for decoration, but I was definitely up for the challenge. And I still included space to write so she could record the date, or year, or special request from her son that year. :)
Check it out and let me know what you think!
I hope she enjoys it as much as I enjoyed making it. I love knowing one more family is keeping these cherished memories in an easy-to-access place! I can just imagine this mom giving the book to her son when he's all grown up and his new wife just loving seeing him as a child. *sigh* So sweet. :)

Just proof that I can do boy books - and really cute ones, too! This was given by one of my friends (and former co-workers) to another one of my friends/former co-workers as her daughter was having a little boy. It was totally a surprise - the book and the baby! ha ha.
This baby came 13 years after their youngest son! Since I knew the new baby would have a brother, I was sure to include a page for the older brother, too. :)

Since my sister had my niece, Macy, 6 months ago, I've been hung up on girly books. I'm just so wrapped up in this beautiful little girl!! So here are a few more pictures from girly books that I've created recently. I will post pictures of a boy book soon... I do make them. Promise! :)
I actually created the paper that is used in this picture!
I love using buttons - it gives a change from stickers and such.
Colorful buttons are so much fun!
Loved these hearts and flowers. They are super thick cardboard stickers
and really made a statement in person.
I'll be adding pictures of my mom's Christmas book that she created with last year's Christmas pictures in it, so you can see how a Pressed Clovers scrapbook looks when it's in use! And I may preview a few pics from this year's book that she hasn't seen yet. I'm giving it to her for her birthday in January.
Thanks for stopping by!

As I perused through some older pictures, I found these of the birthday book for the Birthday Princess, Lilly! Lilly was turning two and I just happened to know she celebrated with a Princess birthday theme, sooo.... I played it up. Many rhinestones later, she had the perfect book to display all her Birthday Celebrations to relive for years to come.
And I hear she lived happily ever after.
Her grandmother has already received Lilly's 3rd birthday book! I hope she enjoys it as much as this one. :)
