On My Craft Table Now

     There are a few things that I've finished this week that I'd like to show you- my new favorite project to make is a scrapbook with a cover made from an old book.
I made this for a gift for a co-worker who's moving away.

This is the first page- it's some beautiful paper from 7Gypsies.

This second page is a piece of old ledger paper.

I almost always add a paint chip to my mini albums!

This is an office envelope covered with some more of that lovely 7Gypsies paper.
I put about 16-17 pages in her album- every page is a different type of paper. I tried to include several envelopes for extra storage space. I bound the book with rings so the pages can be rearranged or more pages can be added.

This is another album I made for my neighbor as a graduation gift. She was so pleased with it!

    I would love to hear about some albums you all have made. Please leave a link in the comments to share.
     Thanks so much for stopping by and God bless.

Very nice journal! I like that you add envelopes, and use rings for rearranging.

That's awesome! What a great idea for old books, especially ones that have damaged or missing pages. I need to pin this so I remember.
