Argh! I have so many projects going right now! I have decided that I'm not a very good multi-task-scrapbooker. Projects 3, 4, & 5 in "the works". My Christmas album has been kinda pushed out of the way right now. I'm really getting into these Christmas gifts. I love the idea of homemade gifts for everyone. I know that if I put it off for later it won't happen. So...I'm plugging away at this class. I should have a couple more projects to show you in the next few days. Keep your fingers crossed!!!
Anyway....off my little soapbox and on to this project....
This was a fun, quick, easy gift. I purchased a nice leather album for 4x6 photos (with my 50% off coupon at Michaels!). I'm giving this to someone that doesn't scrapbook. They can just slip their photos right in the album and have them ready to take anywhere. But--I couldn't just leave it at that! To jazz it up and make it more personal I added a few touches. To the cover I added a few rub-ons. On the inside I created a front and back cover for the album. Each one mirrors eachother with a different quote. I've decided not to put pictures in it--they can add their own.
I'm really excited to give this gift. Obviously this will go to a family member, but I'm not telling whoooo!!!!
