UPDATE: This craft project was initially created for a website by the name of Kidzui, however that website no longer exists.
My kids absolutely love it when they get stickers and stamps for a job well done. What they don't like is leaving them on their t-shirts, and then the t-shirts going through the wash, or them washing away in the bath. So we made some adorable memory books to store their treasures. Head on over to Kidzui for the full instructions.
What you need:
You can purchase chipboard albums at most craft stores, this makes it so much easier to make your own custom albums, however if you want a certain size you can also buy sheets of chipboard and cut them to size.
Cut paper to fit into your album, hole punch the side, and then put your album together using the book binding rings.
Use stamps to create your album title, and then add a little decoration to it. I found these super cute mini banners that are normally used for scrapbooking, but you can make your own too.
Last year I won a lovely silhouette of Flynn from Simply Silhouettes. I wanted to give it a little makeover this year so it didn't have the date and could be used every year as part of our Halloween decor.
Here are the step-by-step instructions to create this. First off let me tell you that I purchased the embroidery hoop for 50 cents from a thrift shop last month.
Disclosure: This project has been compensated as part of a social shopper insights study for Elmer's #gluenglitter #collectivebias.

UPDATE: THIS GIVEAWAY HAS ENDED.
The WINNER drawn by Random.org is:
Here is a sneak peek at a few pages of a Scrapblog book I made for Flynn. It's going to be a Christmas gift. He absolutely loves books, and is learning how to read, so I thought what could be better than making a book for him about this past year. It's titled "Flynn in 2010".
And now I have a couple of gifts for you too. After all it is the season of giving.

Father's Day is June 20th this year ... apparently I'll be sharing my birthday with my hubby. So I just discovered. Hmmm.
Earlier this week I had the opportunity to attend a scrapbook workshop to make Father's Day scrapbook pages. I haven't scrapbooked in what feels like F.O.R.E.V.E.R so I wasn't about to pass up the opportunity to learn some new tips and put a couple of pages together.
The photographs I used were taken a couple of years ago by the amazingly talented Jaime of Classy Kids Photography. Oh how I wish she lived closer so she could take some new ones for me.
