Album Designing

In the scrappy mood but not enough time to play other than a less time consuming project? Try this!

What a fun and simple thing I was easy to do to dress up a Christmas gift! Some nieces have started scrapbooking (7th grader and Freshman) and so I bought them some scrapbooking supplies for Christmas. I also bought them some albums! However, since the albums were just alike and they were going to sisters, I decided to personalize them.

As you can see from the first picture, I took a plain fabric covered scrapbook. I then used my Gypsy to design the name that I wanted to put on the book. I cut this design on my Cricut out of vinyl. I have discovered that using the transfer tape to transfer the vinyl to the project makes it MUCH easier!

The second pic shows the finished album. I added the name in brown vinyl and then added the smaller butterfly to the top corner of the photo slot.

Hubby has asked me to cut something out of vinyl to put on the front of oldest son's new drum set! I am also going to cut the triplets names out of vinyl to put on their Leapster Explorers so they know whose is whose! So many things that you can use the vinyl for!

What other ideas do you have or have you used vinyl for? Please share with me! I am always looking for new ways to play with vinyl!

God Bless, Heather
