In the Designer's Words: "Memories are so precious! Creating an album to store them is an especially thoughtful gift. Just because it looks like it took forever doesn’t mean it actually should! This Shabby Chic Album was created using a Chipboard Album, Patterned Papers and Pre-made Embellishments to cut down on time. Foils and Flowers were used to create interest and metal accents to add to the vintage feel. Having all your supplies ready and in one place allows you to complete your project quickly! You may want to create two so it won’t be so hard to give away! The hardest part of this project is just gathering the supplies and getting started. Once you have everything, it comes together pretty quickly. You can get as detailed as you'd like! Just enjoy the process."
Scrapbooking is a creative way to look back while creating new crafting memories. While buying scrapbooks at the store might save you just a little bit of time, making your own DIY scrapbook just adds that beautiful and homemade crafting touch to your memories that really shows you care. The Shabby Chic DIY Scrapbook craft shows you how to decorate your own scrapbook ideas with a stunning and vintage look. This paper craft idea is surprisingly easy to make and sure to be a blast.
