House album

Last Christmas, I created several house shaped albums as gifts. Unfortunately, the lighting wasn’t very good when I took the pictures and since I gave all the albums away, I can’t take better pictures. I hope you will bear with me and take a look any ways.

I had to keep the pages simple in order to make enough albums in time for Christmas. I think they’ll look cute once the photos are adhered to the pages.

To get the house shape, I enlarged a picture of the Bare Elements Petey House Mini Book die from AccuCut's 2008 Craft Catalog & Idea Book. Then my husband cut four house shapes out of chipboard for each album. I was busy cutting all the paper and embellishments for the pages while he did the cutting :) So these albums were a joint effort and truly from both of us.

Materials used on all pages:
Bashful Blue, Real Red, Old Olive, Whisper White card stock, Summer Picnic DSP and Holiday Treasures DSP (Fall-Winter 2008 catalog
Accessories: Bashful Blue brad, 1/8” circle punch, Crop-A-Dile, Trio flower punch, scallop edge punch, 5-petal flower punch, Boho Blossoms punch, key rings from Wal-Mart, ¼” Old Olive grosgrain ribbon, 5/8” Real Red grosgrain ribbon, white gel pen, ruler, bone folder, rub-ons, glue dots, SNAIL adhesive, Sticky Strip, paper cutter, scissors, house pattern, chipboard

If you have any questions, please let me know. Have fun stampin’ and creatin’!
