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.

Every Year Will Be Different

I truly couldn’t be more exited about this card album idea. No need to add the year, our photo card says it all. My girls absolutely LOVED seeing these. The oldest was intrigued by the age difference visible in each photo, it was super cute. Now I’m looking forward to making one each and every year, and I’m excited that every year will look different!
