Matchbook Album

From what I'm told...these are all the rage. I don't get it. I gave it a try and I STILL don't get it. It was super easy to make, but I guess I just prefer plain old full sized albums. LOL. In my scrapbooking group I co-own we are doing a challenge right now to create one of these little suckers so I had to give it a try. Overall I am happy with how it turned out! Maybe I'm just a little frustrated because I had to redo the pages a bit. Note to those that are going to try this....leave an inch to an inch and a half EMPTY and unembellished on the side that will be in the crease!!! LOL.

For my album I used lime and pink 'mom' themed papers I found at JoAnn's. Not sure of the brand as I didn't plan on posting it until after I was done =) LOL. The cover is pink double sided (one side is dark and one side is pale) mulberry paper. The white brads, gemstones and flowers are all from my stash. I used coordinating cardstock to create 2x3, 3x4 and 3x3 photo mats.

Here it is in all it's glory, including pictures of the inside pages I embellished.
If you would like to give a matchbook album a try I wanna see. Leave me a comment with your blog link so I can come look. Here is a super easy tutorial that my friend Leslie passed on to me. It's fool proof =). Meaning even I couldn't mess it up!!! Except that I did, but that's not the point. LOL!
