Remember this post?
I finally made 2 memory books for both boys today. As you know a scrapper I am not, but an occasion booklet maker I am, and do so on occasion. :) I made this Legoland memory booklet today out of chipboard, card stock, and the Bind it All. It's filled it with pictures (just under 50) from our fun adventure to Legoland. Alec and his family loved it when we dropped it off this afternoon!
There's nothing fancy going on here, even the ribbon was a question mark, as I know these books are for boys. They will be handled often, reliving the day and anticipating our visit next year, so I just didn't want to bellie it up too much. I kept the color scheme Lego type colors; I wanted to use Lego patterned papers and I've seen them in the past, but when I went out looking in my local area, they were no where to be found. I'm sure if I would have driven farther or looked online I would have found them, but to me, it's just as effective to use bold solid colors.
The finished cover is 4.25" x 6.75" and the inside pages (all card stock pages in the colors shown on the cover) are 4.25" x 6.5" Ticket stubs and the Lego Drivers License are attached to the inside cover of the book. Cuttlebugged Reg Tag Alpha letters, a "ticket" with computer generated date details, and 2 red punched photo corners complete the cover. A final run through the Bind it All and it becomes a perfect quick memory booklet to treasure the day.
So, if you're like me and scrapping the traditional way is overwhelming, try an occasion booklet, they are fast, fun and a great way to preserve the occasion.
