I think that being somewhat of a product hoader and a scrapbooker go hand in hand. I often find myself keeping something thinking, "Oh someday I'll use that".
Well- I DID! (Yeah me!) I put together this super simple homemade minialbum using 1 sheet of 12 x 12 chipboard, 1 piece of patterned paper (with journaling squares) and other supplies.
I took my 12 x 12 chipboard sheet and cut it into 4"w x 8"h pieces. I just punched holes with a regular hole punch and bound with bookrings. Something to keep in mind is that with this vertical format that when you flip the page the opposite page will need to upside down from the previous one so it reads right.
This came together in little over an hour. I just focused on things going on in my life at the moment- no photos. All the supplies came from various Inspired to Scrap Kits.
