This week's challenge is from Jackie! It is to alter something!!! I find these altering challenges so challenging (excuse the pun) because they seem to take so long and it takes me forever to figure out what to make. This one was actually easy for me! Last week I was cleaning up in my storage room and I found a chipboard album that was actually an old Making Memories catty. I fully planned on recycling it and had already set it on my desk. Perfect timing!
Now, what to do with the album. My twins are in grade 1 this year and have both brought home awards that I want to scrapbook for them. Unfortunately, I'm definitely NOT up to date with my scrapbooking efforts so I needed a way to organize everything so that when they are 25 and I'm trying to find their things from grade 1 to scrapbook I will be all organized - LOL! I figure it may take me that long unitl I actually have time to do it.
Anywho, here's what I came up with:
This is the front of the binder. I used some chipboard that I've had forevah and a denim ribbon scrap to make the Grade 1 and the buckle/belt. I LOVE this writing paper cardstock too!
On the inside there are a bunch of dividers with pockets to put everything in. They are divided into Jacob's section and Eli's section and have the following categories:
artwork, awards, report cards, english, math and friends (for class pics and valentine's cards, etc)
Lastly, I stamped our Look Out World Cooper twice and colored them for the front. If you look closely you'll see that I stamped their initials on each t-shirt. We have never dressed the twins the same so I purposely colored them differently.
Well, there it is. I hope I've inspired you to keep your kids' things organized too!
