ok, so it's not a *traditional* scrapbook. (i don't really make those, except for the nieces.) i just wanted a place to put all the stuff we accumulate when we travel, record the fun we had, and maybe add some photos from the trip. so i planned AROUND the stuff i would be collecting, to make the brochures and things we tend to gather integral to the design.
and it was alllllllllll downhill from there, baby!
the naked book: measuring a standard brochure, i cut plain chipboard (the free kind you get in your 12 x 12 patterned paper order) into two 9 x 4.5" pieces to serve as front & back covers. i designed a simple page template in broderbund printshop & made a page for each day of the week, plus activities i knew i'd want to write about... (such as "the beach" "bbq" "charleston" & so forth) ...i added some blank pages, too, as well as a few transparencies cut to size--some decorated and some plain. i punched holes in the top left-hand corner of each page with my crop-o-dile, popped everything onto a staples bookring and i was ready to go!
tomorrow, if you like, i will show you some of the inside pages, and the bits i added in after our return!
