Birthday Book #1

**Warning, Picture Heavy Post*

This year for Christmas my goal is to make several of our gifts myself.

Each year my DH's family does a theives' Christmas and I decided to make a birthday book to exchange.

I used the Kraft Binder from PTI as the base and the Birthday Calendar pages.

Here is the front cover of the book (sorry, I couldn't get the whole thing in the picture)

I kept the pages really simple and used coordinating colors from the patterned paper on the front. 

I took this opportunity to make versions of some of the cards I've loved online. I pulled inspiration from Nichol Heady, Dawn McVey, Lise Johnson, Niki Estes, Debbie Olsen, Betsy Veldman, and Erin Lincoln

I'll be back tomorrow with book two!

Thanks for stopping by!
