My husband has been wanting me to make little scrapbooks of some pictures we had from an afternoon we spent with his family. The task seemed somewhat daunting, but really I just needed a little inspiration.
I ended up making a little mini-album for his dad and his brother (don't tell - I haven't given them away yet!) I tried to use a basic concept for the albums so that it would focus on the pictures and be quick to put together and it worked!
I used the Manchester designer paper that is now retired. It works for men and I made it without using ANY ribbon (quite an accomplishment for me!)
I had this idea because I had some envelopes that I purchased that didn't work with the A2 card size. I hate to waste things like that, so I decided to use them to make an album. I just followed someone else's idea and adhered the flaps to the envelope above it.
