Today I completed a scrapbook! This is a major accomplishment for me as most of my scrapbooks are only half finished.
Using SU's 6"X6" black (faux) leather album, I created a special scrapbook of all of the Christmas cards and photos our family received this year.

The above photo is one of the inside layouts. All the pictures I used were from Christmas cards. I then cut out the signatures or the printed names from the cards to include.

I've decided that this will be my tradition every January -- to take the Christmas cards and photos and scrap them. My husband thinks it's a great idea, but we'll see if I actually do this in 2009!

Supplies: album, Simply Scrappin' kit (retired X-mas 2007), black cardstock

This is another scrapbook I (almost) finished (just have to do the journaling):
I can't believe what can be made from just a few paper bags and some odds & ends supplies! I had fun making this, and my daughter *loves* to sit and "read" it. (She's five now.)

Supplies: 3 paper bags; assorted SU ribbon; rhinestone brad; lg & sm oval punches; prima flower; scallop punch; DS paper; Pretty in Pink & Regal Rose cardstock; tab punch; broken pencil & rubberband (for holding book together); Hugs & Wishes stamp set; basic black ink.
