OH YES I DID!! I completed our Beach 2013 Vacation scrapbook before we even left the beach this year!! I had so many art supplies with me that it'd have been a travesty to wait a whole year like I did last year to get er done. Sooooo... with about 12 pieces of chipboard, including one for the front cover and one for the rear cover... I made this...
Any pages you see that are painted a coppery color are chipboard. All other pages are simply cardstock from your basic ol scrapbook supply store. aka, Hobby Lobby or Michael's.
I used ONLY a roll of gaffer tape to secure all the pages. I'd add a page at a time with the tape. When I got them all put together, I'd find another couple of photos (taken later in the week), which I wanted to include, so I'd just adhere them in with another strip of gaffer or bookbinding tape.
I think I just uploaded 125 photos for this blog so instead of "talking", I think I'll just bow on out and let you look!
It starts right here with this selfie portrait that the girls and I took when we stopped in Hattiesburg, MS, on the way down, all by ourselves. It was the beginning of our roadtrip and a wonderful vacation. I'll see ya at the end of the book. Enjoy!
And there you have it. Completed Beach book. Now understand that in years past, I would've totally stressed that this book does not contain any of our family photos (you know all dressed in white and khaki), but, I knew that we'd be doing that on our last day there, and finishing the book was my priority!
I can always tape one in or make a book with only those pics in it or add one to the back cover. More than likely, I'll just blow a couple up for canvases in the house and condo and call it a day.
I am about ready to teach a little scrapbooking class. How many would be interested if I did so. I need to order the supplies, and don't want to over buy! If you think you might want a little do along tutorial, let me know in the comments. OH... and for those of you who want jewelry, I am ON IT! Y'all can thank Nena Beth for buying ALL the silver cross earrings that I inboxed some of you about after your inquiry. But, I am making some more. so, just hang on...it's coming. I just need about 10 more hours every day!
