so continuing on our baby high (i promise we’ll get back to weddings soon!) i wanted to share with you this amazing find!!!
my dear friend & fellow recent mommy melody with sweet and saucy shop introduced me to this fabulous collection of modern baby books. now i will admit, when melody said “have you gotten your baby book yet?” i made an “ew” face and thought “no way, they are much to cheesy for me!”. then she showed me her book from ruby love. WOW, i was instantly impressed by how fresh and modern it was. everything from the chic, grey, patterned fabric, to the super cute page details, even the colorful milestone stickers. i knew then that i NEEDED one too!!
so i contacted ruby love, and julie created an amazing aqua blue, with grey and orange interior book for baby james. it matches the nursery completely, and i don’t feel like i have lost my sense of personal style with those outdated babybooks that you find at michael’s. bleh!!! i even told julie that my book is so beautiful that i am afraid to even write in it and mess it up. good thing she sells replacement pages in case i do…because i’m a perfectionist like that!!
here is a bit more information about ruby love from julie…
- what inspired you to start your baby book collection?
i’ve been a graphic designer for over ten years and when my son was born almost 5 years ago, i searched for a cute, modern baby book. sadly, all I found were cheesy, ugly, tacky books that had very little relevant info for moms of today! so… with the encouragement of my husband, i designed my own and the ruby love baby book came to be!
- how many various fabric options do people have?
we have over 150 different album cover fabrics to choose from. we have solid colors, floral, paisley, mod circle and geometric, stripes, dots, organic cottons, damask, chevron, novelty prints, and even animal prints… each book is handmade and there is a fabric for everyone!
- what is your most popular design?
our most popular album is our dwell studio blue animals print. it’s a dwell studio print, so it’s beautiful and trendy but the animals keep it classic!
- what turnaround should people expect when ordering?
if you see an album on our website or in our etsy shop we have it in stock and ready to ship! so you can expect to have your baby book in hand within a week or two (depending on where you live!)
all i know is i have now found my gift of choice for my girlfriend’s future baby showers!
