As I mentioned in the last few posts, I made a Vintage Christmas Card Album not only for me, but as a gift for a friend. In all, I made 3 such albums, each one unique to itself. The two books with black covers are similar, using the same pages as bases. The smaller, brown cover book is a slightly smaller size, and features both printed pages and clear pocket pages. Each book also includes a title page, a dedication page (to Edna and Elmer, of course!) and a brief history of Edna and Elmer and how I found the cards. Here is a photo of the three:

As you can see, all different and unique, as paper colors and page layouts were dependent on the cards. This was such a fun project and I just love how they all turned out. A nice respite from scrapbooking with photos! Now to wait until next December to gift them at Christmas.
It is back to the sewing machine for me this week. I'll give a report next post. Till then...
