Precious Moments House

Sneak Peak...Not complete, but wanted to post up some pics to show you I have really been doing something. The pages are not sewn together yet, and just layed together to show how it will look on the front once it's put together.

I am making this House shaped Album for DH's manager- she is going on maternity leave in a couple weeks and I wanted to make something for her. I'm not sure why I chose Precious Moments, but I did. I took coloring book pages and converted them so that I could cut them out with my cricut. I have only completed 4 pages and need a total of 11. The paper piecing is a little detailed and with a 19 month-old baby who doesn't like napping much these days, it's hard.

The little bear with his presents to the baby- The bow is from a fabric flower that I cut in half- Added Stickles for the dots.

The door is the same door from the Minnie Mouse Cartridge, just used the door from her house and added a flower and Big brad from Paper Wishes- The knob is a small brad.

More will be added to this page, I'm just not sure yet what :) I used the Fiskars Heart Edge punch for the tops of the windwos.

The rooof tiles are all cut individually, inked and layered for some depth.

This image was a coloring page that I converted and tweeked up so that I could cut it with my cricut-- I hand drew the eyes as I do on most things to make them sparkle a little more.

The baby's name will be Makayla. I am just hoping that DH got the spelling right. THis will be the first page once you open the book.

I Followed another Image and just added my own details to make it look simular.

I will post more pics as I get them done, but it's turning out to be so cute! I just have to fine a way to piece those images together without a little boy trying to lend a helpnig hand.
