Cover up

scrapbook album cover

It’s the 22nd…which means it is getting close to the 25th…which means soon we will be snapping everything in sight again! As promised, I wanted to make sure we took a minute to look through the different covers that have been posted in case you’re still stuck with what to put on the front of your book.

My cover is still looking pretty plain, and I am okay with that because I think it will come together over the year and be just another little reminder to me to keep the project going. I used two square punches (I have this one which has two squares in one punch, and I’ve had for approximately six and a half thousand years and all is still well) to punch twelve large squares of patterned paper and twelve smaller squares from photos. Except I can’t punch the twelve smaller squares yet, because I want one for each month. So right now there is just one little photo square from April. But next week there will be one from May. And onward we go. The buttons aren’t actually attached yet. Once the photos are all in place, I’m going to add the buttons but I wanted them to overlap the photos so they will have to wait. Which also means I reserve the right to change my mind about the buttons at any time over the next year! But for now, I am thinking pink and green buttons. There’s a bit of pearl white paint on there two, but that’s pretty much it. I’ve left the big window empty for right now. I will eventually put something there…possibly something similar to the hand photo but since this is going to last all year, clearly I don’t want to commit this early in the game.

There are some fabulous covers out there to share with you. Have a look…

    Gosh, My 25th is going to be a funny day – my kids are heading off on holiday with their grandparents, so I will be waving them goodbye and then spending the rest of the day child-free which is fairly unusual!

  5. Julie Thornton Says:

    Great idea for the cover Shimelle. I havn’t done mine yet so am hoping to be inspired at some point on the journey. Looking forward to this months although it may be a bit boring as nothing planned yet. May end up taking shots of the hoover!

    Very beautiful collection of cards you like to put here. I really love such crafting collection and at the same time i know this one is very difficult to do. A lot of ideas you like to discussed here. Any how, I want to get assignment writing service and at the same time its my sound fine effort. Thanks for it.
