Hi everyone! For my project today I want to share a gift idea with you. What hostess at Thanksgiving dinner or a Christmas party wouldn't want to receive a beautiful handmade gift like this memory album?
Family and friends would also love one! All you need is a 4x6 Snap album, some Simple Vintage Christmas paper and embellishments, and some cream card stock.
I used card stock to add six 4.25"x7" scrapbook pages in between the plastic photo sleeves. I didn't add photos to the album since this will be a gift and the recipient will add their own pictures.
I used pattern paper from the 6x8 paper pad and lots of cards from the Simple Vintage Sn@p Card set.
On the cover of the album, and on the page above, I included chipboard frames from the layered frame set. I LOVE these! The one for the cover was cut down so that I could just use the lower left corner of the frame ... I love the dimension the chipboard added to the cover. For the frame above, I added pattern paper to the back of the frame and punched holes for the binder.
The die cuts shown above are from the Bits & Pieces pack, and the stickers throughout the album are from the 12x12 Combo sheet, chipboard, and 4x6 sticker set.
I hope I've inspired you to create a handmade gift this year!
Update: This kit has sold out but I've added the links for the Instructions and the products used below. My instructions are simple, step-by-step and include measurements and full color photos of each page. Happy scrappin'!
