What Am I Working On Now???????

$1 Store - Mini Photo Album...........

Okay, Some of you asked "What am I working on now"?.....I am actually working on several projects, but, I will show you one of them...this is still a work in progress.....I ran across a Mini Photo Album in the $1 Store and it looked like it had the potential to be a very nice gift book...I picked up about 4 of them...Now I have to go back and see if I can get more....
(Click on pic for larger image...)
I decided to alter it and fill it with bible verses....This is not complete yet....but I have covered it and placed the Bible verse in the front....Okay, off to a good start... I think.....I don't know how it will look when it is complete....but I will post pics of the finished product....when it is finished.....

These are pics of the album altered....BUT NOT YET COMPLETE......I took it apart....traced it on K&Company Doubled-sided paper,replaced the ribbons to match my decor and picked some bible verses to use on each page....

I can't believe the great ideas that you come up with. Who would've believed that one dollar could look so good. I can't wait to see your dollar store photo album finished.

Ms. Dee you are an inspiration. I just got my ATG tape yesterday and today I am trying it out. Your coffee filter book is adorable. I am going to try my hand at this. I hope I will be able to subscribe to your blog. It is awesome. So happy you got your DD home.

Great Mini Album!! Love the paper you used, now I have to go check my dollar store for some of those, lol. Thanks for the inspiration!

Thanks for your sweet comment about my card and my blog. That was the first time I had used Street Sign and I can see how you can make some fun things with it. I mainly was interested in the arrows, but I liked how the tags came out also.

Looking forward to your next post...finished project or not :o)

Have a lovely day!

All of your designs are stunning. I've never seen the coffe filter book-love it. Your acrylic album is beautiful. I am big on embellies and yours are just my style. If one is good 10 are fantastic. I love the way they all accent each other.
Blessing to yur daughter and all of the family on her safe return. I am a military mom too. My son has not been in that long and has not gotten deplayed yet. My prayers go out to all serving.
I am already late for work, but I WILL BE BACK to study each of the items posted. You are very inspiring. Thanks for the blogsite

oh Dee this is so precious and such a great idea for using a cheap album. I am now on the look out for something similar so I can scraplift this. I know just the person who needs a book of scriptural encouragement to delve into from time to time.

Your verse cards look so well done. did you produce them yourself? If not where did you find them?

jennie said...

I so love this idea, im gonna be on the look out for these now. thanks for sharing.
