Days 12, and 13 of my 30 day challenge.
Sorry! I'm running behind on my blog posts. But I have been in my craft room creating! I'm a little hooked on these word albums. There are so many possibilities! Personal names, sports, teams, cities, events! What a lot of fun. The first two I did were at the requests of others. I did the grandma album first, then had a request for a name. The name album came out so adorable. I used papers from DCWV Nina's kids and Kidlet collections. Then I wanted to do one for myself and actually add embellishments. So I picked my granddaughter Cora and made my own album.
This was requested
This one I did for myself!
So much fun to add pictures and stickers!
I have seen some really tricked out albums on Pinterest and google. I'm not that creative! A simple word with adorable paper and a few stickers and I'll call it good!
Both of these were made by cutting each page two times. One cut facing correctly and the other a mirror image. I then glued the two pages together. That takes skill! Lining up the edges before the clue dries is a little tricky! I used a plastic scraper I keep on my craft counter to spread the sheets together as flat as I can. Otherwise you can kind of see the glue stripes. I also put a paper towel over the letters while I did my flattening, so I didn't damage the letters.
I have a few crafting tools that I don't get out very often. The Cinch is one. I can see myselft using it more often now that I have the hang of making word albums.
You could make some really cute holiday gifts too. I can see them being used as recipes books, using the word recipes or cookies, or breads, and then having a different recipe on each page. Or using numbers to create cute little year books highlighting some very important moments. The possibilities are truly endless!
Thanks again for stopping by!
