To play up the travel theme of the Atlas collection, I made the album look like a suitcase. I picked up these Tim Holtz metal buckles and used patterned paper to create the straps.
The pages are made out of envelopes, glued together to create an accordion-style album.
Each kiddo has a page spread, with their photo on one side and their name and journaling on the other. Inside each envelope pocket is a tag that they wrote a message on.
I think I might have to scrapbook this photo on a layout:
I wonder if he will ever smile for me without those squinty eyes?
This could also be a great format for a travel mini album. The envelopes would hold the memorabilia from your trip easily.
Be sure to visit the Pink Paislee blog today for more details on the album and the materials I used to create it. If you're celebrating, enjoy your Father's Day this weekend! Tessa
