Here’s a project I did recently that was shown on Practical Scrappers yesterday.
My aunt asked me to make her this special little scrapbook. She had written this little poem book type thing for my cousin (her nephew) for his 18th birthday. He passed away unexpectedly a year later and she received this back from his mother as a keepsake. She laminated it and has been carrying it around in her wallet ever since, but she wanted something more substantial so she asked me to do something with it.
I used a 7Gypsies chipboard tag album that looked like this before I started:
And I decorated with paper she picked out and then just prettied up the front. Here’s the after:
This is what she was carrying around:
I actually scanned all the little pages and printed them out onto white cardstock so she could keep the originals. I covered every page (tag) in the album with black cardstock and just adhered my little pages in order to each one.
It’s a cute little poem, so I thought I would share the inner pages with you here. If you can’t see them well enough, just click on each photo and give it a second to adjust and it will be just the right size.
My aunt was so thrilled with this, and I was so happy to be able to give her a special keepsake of one of her nephews.
