I was asked to be part of a school themed blog hop in the month of August. Unfortunately, I wasn't able to participate due to having surgery right before the hop. I actually had my project completed last month --- before I knew of the moved date -- so here's the School Themed Mini Album I came up with.
(You can click the pictures for a closer view)
Detail of that flashcard pullout:
One of the fun things about this album is the fact that most of the embellishments were free!
I printed them from various FREE sites around the web --- and I'll be sharing those sites with you at the end of this post.
The album was actually a chipboard album set --- given to me by a friend.
I enjoy creating albums even more when I have a whole set of matching papers already cut to size and ready to go!
I wanted my album to have a vintage feel to it, and thought the colors of these papers lent themselves to that feel. Something different than the customary primary colors.
You'll also note that nearly every page has some sort of pocket with tags and other embellishments that pull out of it.
