I am sooo excited! I was actually able to sit and work on this album. It is sooo easy to do that it is scary. I have not been able to put in the pictures, but I will be adding wallet size pictures, which is what fits best. I am thinking about adding some doodling around the pictures as an embellishment after I get my Sakura pens from EBB. :) (Can't wait!!)
Here are some things to consider if you intend to make this album. Because the pages are 3x3, I found that the chipboard should be cut to 3.5x3.5 instead of 4". I tried it originally with 4" and it was too big. This other measurement worked great.
The patterned paper I used to cover the chipboard measured 5x5 because I wanted to make sure that the 3x3 album pages would cover all the empty space. I also used double-sided patterned paper to create the pages. I think it adds a little something unique to it.
This is a beautiful album that can be carried around in your purse. I think it could also be used as a memory-card when giving a present to a friend. Because it is so easy to make, it will serve as a great addition to any project you make. I even think that it can be added to a LO in order to incorporate hidden long journaling.
I would love to see some of your own creations. Please take the time to create this album and share a picture. :OP I love to see what others are able to inspire me with!
