A Proud Grandma's Photo Album

While attending physical therapy (it's almost over), I met some wonderful people. One lady is someone that I knew slightly back in my sewing days.....when I used to make my twin daughter's clothing. Anyway, Margaret and I reconnected and she asked if I was still sewing (only sometimes). So, of course I explained that I am now passionate about rubber stamp art.....but she didn't quite get what that was. Well, long story short, she ended up ordering a number of card sets from me. THIS was my thank you gift from me to her.
I've been wanting to try making one of these fun little scrapbooks for a long time, and making one for Margaret was the perfect time to try. Now, the ones I've seen online were in tins, but since SU now sells these plastic cases (they are what our new clear-mount sets come in), I needed to see if they would work....they work perfectly!

The first photo shows the case.....but you probably don't recognize the DSP. To be honest, I no longer know the has long been retired from the SU line. I don't have much of this paper left (guess it's long overdue that I use it up, huh?!!), and it was just perfect for this project. The cover was really simple and also features retired mini brads in Barely Banana; the saying was computer generated. Those cute little elephants were created with a Martha Stewart punch.
Contained inside was the booklet itself (2nd photo). Coordinating DSP (from the same collection) was used. The inside of the scrapbook contains clear envelopes....they are the perfect size for photos! You can see the tutorial on making it here. It really is easy....and quick, too!
Margaret loved it and now she has a great way to show off photos of her grandson...and protect them in her purse. She is, after all, a very proud Grandma!
