I thought it would be nice if she shared it with us here on the blog. What do you say? If you need more inspiration to make an ABC Album make sure you check out my ABC Album here.
Ever since I began digi-scrapping, I've known that I wanted to make an ABC book. I purchased the alphabet papers (from Digitreats, a now retired store) and your templates over a year ago, and they have been sitting in my stash ever since. Finally, on March 1, 2013, my niece had a baby boy and I could start my book.
A friend sent me a link to a list of very helpful ideas.
I had a lot of fun searching my stash for just the right embellishments. The idea list helped tremendously. For those items that I could not find in my stash, such as the iguana, the queen, the yams, and the xylophone, I searched Google Images, making sure the images that I chose were big enough to be used in my layouts.
Using your ABC book templates made the whole process very easy, and I was able to alter them to suit my needs, such as removing the journaling and photo spaces.
I made the decision to print this book at Shutterfly after receiving an email containing a code for a free 8x8 book - the perfect size for a book for a baby. The book arrived quickly, less than a week after uploading. Of course, I always find an error or two after printing, but overall, I'm pretty pleased with the whole book. Three of my friends liked the book so much that they also ordered a copy to give to their own relatives. I feel like an author!
Here are a few of the pages from inside my book.
|I used all sorts of elements from digital scrapbook kits I've collected over the years. If you see an element|
that you want to know more about just email Liz and we'll send you the info.
And here's the back. I just love it!
I just love how Donna grabbed from all kinds of different kits to make her book. I just know the kids are going to enjoy flipping through that book, looking at all those fun elements, all while learning their letters!
