This Want2Scrap Polkadot Booklet Album is adorable to boot! I got it out thinking that it would probably take me forever to get it finished, but I was done in just a few hours. I couldn’t put it down! When I started, I wasn’t quite sure what I was going to make it into. Ideas ranged from a Valentine’s Day book for my husband of things I love about him, a note pad for my daughter to draw in, and finally settled on a princess book. Wanna know the great news? She LOVES it! She’s always asking me, “Mom, where’s my new princess book?” When I get it out for her she oo’s and aw’s at all of the pictures of “Princess Claire”. Too bad I can’t wait a single day to give presents or else I would have given it to her for Valentine’s Day. Sigh…maybe next time.
I knew exactly which pictures I was using, which made it easier. I took Claire on a “Princess Week” outing two years ago (which I would recommend to anyone with a daughter), where we chose a character and lived a day in her life. So, to get started on your book, all you have to do is gather your pictures, your paper, and the embellishments you’d like to use. Then, just cut and paste! So easy and fun.
Without further adieu: The Princess Book
Since I didn’t want to cut out little individual holes for the cover and I didn’t have any spray paint, I used a stamp pad. It worked better than I expected actually! I chose a light pink and just blotted the ink pad all over the chipboard until it covered it like I wanted it to. MUCH faster than cutting holes!
With my chipboard embellishments I sort of did the same thing that I did with the cover. This time, however, I used acrylic paint to get them white and then I used a stamp pad for the color. As for the pages, just cut out a 5×7 piece of paper, trace the holes and cut them out, glue, and trim the edges. Super easy! I used A LOT of Want2Scrap embellishments and I think it makes ALL the difference!
This really is too fun to make! I can’t wait to make another album and I hope you enjoy it as much as I did!
