But I figured out a simple cover design for my 30 Days of Thankful album, using the Martha Stewart labels from Staples. I printed the text from my computer, thanks to the handy Microsoft Word templates Avery provides online. For some reason, the gold labels wouldn't feed into my printer so I used rub-on letters and stamped some arrows. (Click for larger images.)

The inside front cover has a cute phrase from the Silhouette Online Store, "a thankful heart is a happy heart." I cut it using my favorite glittery paper, the American Crafts POW line. This color is a muted gold called Caramel, the same color I used for the numbers on each page.
This week I also went back and stamped the days of the week on each page. I have 3 (!) sets of days of the week stamps, so I figured I should actually use them. I keep buying them with the intention of using them for Project Life, but I never seem to pull them out when I'm working on my pages. Sigh. I am a hoarder, plain and simple.
|Yes, those are two different babies in the photos. |
This page is about my love for the baby wrap/sling/carrier.
|Not sure how many pages I can get away with re: my love for crafting.|
I do like the way the stamping looks, and how the pages are still pretty simple, allowing the photos and patterned paper to shine. So I'll probably leave them as is, and just bind the album once all the pages are complete.
What do you think?
