Memories of Mom


Oh my, have I already had a busy week. I've started designing hybrid goodies for the Digi Chick and they have so many things to choose from. I ended up picking out this cute little album template by Kelleigh Ratzlaff. You can find it here. I also used Sugarplum Paperie's new kit Strawberry au Lait.

I decided that I wanted to bind the book, but I still wanted all the layers visible. I did this buy cutting out transparencies into 5x6 sheets and scoring the left side at 1 inch. I then made all the front pages to my book, cut them out and glued them on to the transparencies. Then I repeated with the back sides. I punched 2 holes on the side and added eyelets, ribbon and a heart jewel to the front.

BTW, if you're reading this Mom...yes I made this for you!
