What feels like ages ago I shared a Wedding Card Keepsake Book project here on the blog, a spin-off of my original Christmas Card Keepsake Book that I had published in Creating Keepsakes years and years ago, and you guys LOVED it. I did too, back when I was super into scrapbooking and I had all the time in the world, without babies and such. Every year I save our Christmas cards and think, next year I’ll have time to make a special album for them, and then, I don’t. I saved Hadley’s baby shower cards thinking the same thing. The thought of creating a cute album cover was daunting to me for some reason… and then it hit me: USE OUR CHRISTMAS CARDS AS THE ALBUM COVER! That was it, that was the easy, cute, and best possible thing to make the cover out of! I used the Happy Planner discs and punch to whip up these albums quickly and you can too, see exactly how I did it in the video below.
