Purse Album

I found the chipboard album at Michael's in the $1.00 bin...and thought of my sister who has a purse addiction (Gotta luv her) anyway...she is gonna be a grandma soon, so I made this for her. My idea is to take sepia toned pictures of the new baby girl to add to these pages. Since it stands alone, you can use it almost like a frame.

Every page is different (I didn't photograph all of them) On some I left more space for the photo. I plan to personalize it for her before giving it to her. let's hope she doesn't look here & ruin the surprise!

Now that I made one of these, I think I'm hooked! And I want one to keep for myself!
This one was made using papers for K&Co. I also used some ribbon flowers I bought pre made in a pkg at JoAnn's Fabric's. I used nestabilites & some punches & a lot of ribbons.

  1. Absolutely darling! I'll have to look for this at my Michaels! Was it with the "Fun Finds" kids' stuff or the regular $1 stuff? Thanks for sharing your wonderful idea!

  2. Oooh! I'm going to M's today to pick up a few things, I'll have to look for this. I didn't see this particular shape but I'll definitely dig around for it!
