Here is another craft I did a while ago. These little pockets are made out of regular envelopes. You close the flap and cut the envelope in half, cut the open corners and fold it back. Then you add patterned paper and flower embellishments. Easy!
Then I took my Zutter Bind It All and bound them into a little book with photos of my grandson....I'm a very, very young grandmother...really I am! ;)
I did the chipboard letters with a special embossing technique created by Marion from A Piece of Craft. I really like the effect which I think looks very masculine. If you double click on the picture, it should enlarge it a bit so that you can see it.
I made my mother and mother-in-law each a mini album last Christmas of all their grandchildren. One of the things I worked into each page was the meaning of their names, and in their baby page I included the date they were born. It was a big hit!!
Since then, another one of my sons married, and the other son and daughter-in-law had a son. So why am I telling you this? Well, I'll be doing up a couple of 8X8 pages for each of them very soon and hope to post them here.
