Snapshots Album

A while ago, I found that I had a lot of extra wallet size pics. Since some were scrapped I wasn't sure exactly what to do with them all.
At the time I still wasn't sure I was getting a 365 kit so I had ordered an American Crafts 3 ring binder & had plans to make my own 365 kit just in case. Luckily I hadn't gotten far on the 365 album when Laura told me that mine was on it's way. So now I had an extra album hanging around.

Not sure when the idea hit me exactly but I had one of those "A-HA!" moments.

I did a little online purchase, when that came in I collected all my wallet pics, made some journaling cards & put it all together & voila! Here is my solution to all the extra wallet pics! This will sit in the family room & people can flip through it & read what they're about on the back.

Couldn't resist doing the cover like Nichol's. So easy & fun & I get to use up some stash!!

It's kinda hard to see the pages but you might be able to click on them to back them bigger. I used these for the page protectors.
This is what the journaling cards look like. Just used various colors of cardstock I had cut them down to size, then stamped them with my Autum Leaves stamp.

The journaling basically tells who, what, where & when, very simple & to the point.

I love how this album came together. My girls love to flip through it & see how they've grown through the years.

I love this idea Sara! What a way to put those pics together and the journaling on the back. Love it! The cover came out nice too. Everytime I go to Hobby Lobby I pick up ones of those Modern albums when their 50% off-I love those.
I believe you shared those journaling cards recently, right?
