abc chipboard book

Here is a book I made out of the On Board Bitty Book and chipboard Letters from Stampin'Up. I covered the book with Designer Series paper and sanded the edges of the book to take off the excess paper. Gives a clean finished edge. I used Craft ink to dye the "a" and "c" letters. The "B" I also covered with paper...except the inside peices I also used Craft ink on.

The book comes with page protectors and I wheeled Whisper White CS with "My ABC's" wheel and wrote in the letters. Yes, wrote in the letters! The ABC Alphabet by SU fits perfect on the wheel lines, but I don't have that set! Hard to believe! If anyone would like to help me in reminding my husband that I DO need more stamps, I can surely give you his e-mail address! hehe. I made this so Bailey could use a dry erase marker to practice writing her letters (the page protectors make it possible to wipe off and write over and over again.) But alas, I haven't put all the pages into the book yet and she is getting so good at writing even without this cute book, I might just have to be selfish and keep it all to myself!

Here is the back of the book. For the Images that cordinate with the letters, I stamped and colored then punched out with the 3/4" circle punch. I used the word window punch, folded in half and then adhered the circles on either side of the page.
