These Books NEVER Get Old!

Honestly... We could make these folio books over and over again! Just yesterday a lady at a crop told us that she made two and it got "old." We looked at her like she had grown two heads right before our eyes! Here are some pictures that I took of one that I just did for a friend for her to give as a gift for a baby shower.

This is the front cover. It has that vintage baby feel to it, so I wanted to make sure that I kept that throughout the book. I used a Swivel Clasp by Tim Holtz as the closure mechanism. 

This is another collection from Fancy Pants called Baby Mine.

I decorated the pull out tags very minimally because I wanted to leave the mother to be plenty of room for journaling and for mounting pictures when the time comes.

The chipboard stickers and embellishments that are included in this collection came in handy for adding a splash of extra character in corners!

Books... Books ... & More Books!

Books have been the theme around the crafting room since before Christmas! It feels like we have made a million and one of them... and loved each and every minute of it! Hopefully there will be some Copics and some card making in the near future, but for now ... it's all about making albums for friends and family and looking forward to hearing about how they are filled up!

It all started with a folio class that we took at the local craft store, The Paper Trail, with instructor Kim Baker. We fell in love with the book and have made about a dozen or so of them since. I snapped some pictures of the most recent ones we put together.

This is the front of a summer album that Michele recently finished. She is hoping to fill it up with pictures this summer when her nieces and nephews come to visit! :)

The paper is from Fancy Pants, the Beach Bum collection.

The colors are nothing less than awesome! She hasn't decorated the tags that are tucked in pockets here there and every where. She is going to wait until she has the pictures of her babies to work with. 
Hurry Up SUMMER!

The craft paper can be used for photo mounting or for journaling. 
We love the layout of this book and it is super functional and fun to make!
