Bundle of Joy Boy Freebie: Guest Book

Hello!  We've been home since late morning Sunday and are getting adjusted to having a little newborn in the house again!  I had a C-section last Friday and the surgery went a lot smoother than last time, my nerves didn't get the best of me and I was able to stay alert for the whole procedure.  Recovery at home is moving along and thankfully I have my mom out to help us.  I'll be taking some time off from blogging, although I will pop in and share some pictures of our newest family member by the end of the week.

So many of my readers have been supporting me throughout this whole pregnancy I wanted to think of a way to say thank you.  I made a traditional paper version of this project, that I'll share pictures of soon, and wish I could hand make something for everyone!  Since that just isn't possible, I've created this digi version of my project and to celebrate our new son's birth, Louise the designer at Adorible Digital Designs has agreed let me share a cute guest book I made using  kit Bundle of Joy Boy

The full post and links to the templates are on Louise's site, but here's a sneak peek! It's a set of templates to make a Baby Guest Book!  The idea is to have the filler pages printed out ahead of time, and then as each family member or friend meets the baby for the first time, you have each one fill out a page.  Afterward, you can add a picture of them together over the space provided.

It's an easy peasy way to do something special for baby's arrival and create a special keepsake for your little one that incorporates your family's and friend's handwriting as well as thoughts and memories. Above is the title page and below is an introduction page for you to put at the beginning of your book.  Just add your photo and details before printing out.

This is just a starting point, be sure to pick up Bundle of Joy Boy so you can create more pages to add to your guest book!  Page templates are sized to fit an 8X8 scrapbook, a standard scrapbook size in the US and the reason I love a hybrid version is because you can print out as many as you need and everything will always coordinate.  No worrying about having to scramble and make extra pages and running out of supplies.  For printing tips, see my previous guest post at Adori Graphics.

Preview Filler Pages
Here's a preview of the filler pages for the photo and message.  Each side is a separate file, but I've shown them together so you'll get a better idea of how your book will look when it's open.

If you haven't already, don't forget to check out the Bundle of Joy Mini Book Freebie, I made for the kit release. It's still available for download on my release post and coordinates perfectly with the Baby Guest Book.
