Well, the Polar Express Blog Train and Christmas Present Hunt were a huge success! I hope you all were able to get all the goodies offered by me and my fellow designers at Digitals. But, if you didn't, most of the kits are available in the store now. Of course, while the blog train was chugging along, so was I! I added a new Do-It-Yourself album to my store! This one coordinates with my Heritage Collection: Timeless Romance page kit and Add-On and is perfect for engagements, weddings, anniversaries and Valentine's Day.
IDEA: You attended a wedding a year ago and now the happy couple is celebrating it's first anniversary. Since "paper" is the traditional gift, why not make a cute hybrid album using this kit and photos of the couple in various stages of the relationship: dating, engagement, wedding, etc. Use pretty ribbons instead of the locking rings to tie the pages together! And don't forget the journaling! Remember to put the dates of the photos at the very least.
These albums are small enough to display on a coffee or end table. They will even fit on those small, hinged stands that you can purchase at any craft store, Target or Wal-Mart. It is a one-of-a-kind gift that will be so appreciated and will last a lifetime!
Here are some pages that my friend Vicky Day did with this kit:
The kit includes 28 pre-shaped backgrounds and 70 assorted elements all sized to fit these pages. Additional resizing may be needed according to your layout. By popular request, I have even included a bonus quick page to get you started! How cool is that?
