Days 12, and 13 of my 30 day challenge.

Sorry!  I'm running behind on my blog posts.  But I have been in my craft room creating!  I'm a little hooked on these word albums.  There are so many possibilities!  Personal names, sports, teams, cities, events!  What a lot of fun.  The first two I did were at the requests of others.  I did the grandma album first, then had a request for a name.  The name album came out so adorable.  I used papers from DCWV Nina's kids and Kidlet collections.  Then I wanted to do one for myself and actually add embellishments.  So I picked my granddaughter Cora and made my own album.
This was requested

This one I did for myself!
So much fun to add pictures and stickers!

I have seen some really tricked out albums on Pinterest and google.  I'm not that creative!  A simple word with adorable paper and a few stickers and I'll call it good!  

Both of these were made by cutting each page two times.  One cut facing correctly and the other a mirror image.  I then glued the two pages together.  That takes skill! Lining up the edges before the clue dries is a little tricky! I used a plastic scraper I keep on my craft counter to spread the sheets together as flat as I can.  Otherwise you can kind of see the glue stripes.  I also put a paper towel over the letters while I did my flattening, so I didn't damage the letters.  

I have a few crafting tools that I don't get out very often.  The Cinch is one.  I can see myselft using it more often now that I have the hang of making word albums.  

You could make some really cute holiday gifts too.  I can see them being used as recipes books, using the word recipes or cookies, or breads, and then having a different recipe on each page.  Or using numbers to create cute little year books highlighting some very important moments.  The possibilities are truly endless!

Thanks again for stopping by!
