I love having a digital camera! But, one thing I've noticed is that I never print out photos like I used to do with my film camera. Sure, I scrap, but I usually just do my favorite pictures. Making mini-albums is so labor intensive for me, so I rarely do them. Recently, I made a promise to myself that I would print more photos so my family could enjoy them. But what to do with them? I decided to start making some mini photo albums. This one was so quick and easy!!!!
First, I bought one of those inexpensive albums at the store. I cut a slit in the cover and pulled out the paper that served as the decoration on the cover. Then, I put in my own paper. I added a tag, some stickers, and VOILA, the cover of my little photo album was transformed!
Next, I pulled out some 7 Gypsies tags. I attached a Making Memories clip to each of them and journaled all about our adventure.
Finally, I tucked the tags into the pages of the book.
My goal is to make lots of simple little albums like this one. It didn't take much time, but really made a fun keepsake. I hope to find a basket to display in my living room and keep the albums in there.
Thanks for stopping by and having a peek,
