Family Chipboard Album

Today is Wednesday & today I am sharing an album I made :

The album is made with Chip board  & rings for binder. 

  • chipboard or heavy material for book
  • Cut 6 squares ( 6 X 6 )
  • punch 2 wholes in each page
  •  ( 2 ) Binder rings to hold together.


I am using a paper pack from Authentique  Paper : Grace & Strength . Love the chicken,cows and farm prints -with great family stickers . Done in warm reds,blues and gold. Perfect for a family album. 





Perfect paper to show case family recipes & pictures. I layered the paper to cover the front cover & used a large sticker for the cover. Through out the pages I made use of this paper pack that highlight family ,farm and more. 



Here’s a great family favorite to try –   Highlighted with stickers from the paper pack.
