Birthday Albums

I've been pretty busy stamping but you wouldn't know it by my blog posts! LOL A few of the projects I cannot show you yet...they are for the upcoming Catty Cruise. Make sure to check back here on Saturday to see the cruise projects I have been working fantastic projects by the rest of the crew.

A couple other projects that have been keeping me busy are two birthday albums I've been working on. One is complete, but the other one is still a work in progress, which needs to be finished by Saturday. Both are gifts for family who hit milestone birthdays this year. Here is the cover of the book I am still working on for my Aunt.
I used the Circle Circus set for many of the inside pages so I used some retired Haiku paper for the cover. I LOVED that paper...I sure wish they made it available in another color scheme because it coordinates so nicely with the Circle Circus set. Oh well... at least I have a little bit left in my stash. I also used some new specialty paper called The Write Stuff. The Ruby Red polka-dot paper and the scalloped die cut is from that pack. I can't wait to create some fun scrapbook pages with some of the other die cuts from that pack!

I used Long Board Chip Board for the cover and then my new toy...the Bind It All to punch the holes for the binding. The silk flower is from the Pretties Kit and the center is one of the large White Grommets. I'll share some of the inside pages when I'm all finished.

The other book I created was for my Mom to give to a close family friend. Since this one was for a guy, and I only had a couple of days to complete the whole book, it is much simpler. Here's the cover:

I didn't use very many stamps, mostly an adhesive card stock sticker set called Older & Wiser from the Paper Loft. You can see here that I used one of my favorite wheels - Rough Around the Edges, to add some texture to the cover. Here's a view of the inside:
Thanks for stopping by today!
