CTMH Everyday Celebrations Stamp and CTMH Magic Moments Paper 6x6" Chipboard Accordian Album

Okay, so now that you've seen the awesome cards you can make with the Everyday Celebrations kit I'd like to show you just how versatile this set is by sharing a 6x6" chipboard accordian birthday album I made with the stamp set and some Magic Moments paper!

My daughter was invited to a friend's 13th birthday party today and she needed to find a gift that fit with her friend. Her friend isn't really into jewelry, video games, etc. so she was kind of at a loss on what to get until I suggested a personalized 6x6" chipboard accordian birthday party album so her friend can have a place to keep photos of her special day. Eliza thought this sounded great (especially as Mom already had all the items and I'm giving her the "family discount" on product - aka she didn't have to spend any of her babysitting money).

As with most personalized gifts, the best way to start is to think about the person and what you know they like. I asked Eliza what colors Tiana likes to wear and she said mostly green and brown - two patterns from Magic Moments sprang into mind. I then asked what other things she knew Tiana liked and Eliza said ladybugs and sheep. So out came the "Alphabet Solos K" set (two adorable lady bugs) and "A Birthday Wish" was added to the pile for the sweet sheep. After two hours of cutting, assembly and some extra stamping - here is the very cute and personalized gift her friend is receiving today!
