Roommate Gift

Now that the Close To My Heart Convention start date has passed and Laura has received this, I can finally post it on my blog.
I wanted to create something for her that I thought she could use to record her Disney memories but at the same time, if she chose to use it for another purpose, she could do that, too.
I went back to an old 4x4 album that Close To My Heart used to carry and used that - it was the perfect size and allowed me to use a variety of papers but still keep mainly to her favourite colour of blue. I incorporated a fair number of flip flaps along the way and gave her lots of opportunities for journaling but she could also add photos in those places as well. The last pages have also been hole punched so if she wants, she can join the album into a circle or if not, it can sit in a long line - her choice.
It is finished on both sides and I purposely did all the stamping in pigment inks so the ink will not fade if it is on display in a room.



I also did a set of 8 creating cards for her and decorated a box in which to place them. They are for various occasions and I hope that she finds them useful. I didn't post those here.

Thanks for being my roomie, Laura! I trust we will both have an amazing time :)

  1. What a beautiful gift for someone and with so much flexibility, she must have enjoyed receiving these and I'm sure you have her seriously thinking on how she will use these pages.
