Wedding Gift...LOTS of photos...

My last post showed the wedding keepsake box that I made for Joel and Jaclyn's wedding...which is tonight. (I am such a fly-by-the-seat-of-my-pants kind of girl...) Inside of the box, is this accordian album that I JUST completed. (insert hand wiped across brow and sigh of relief here...) The top photo is the front of the album.

.Note: The plastic sleeves are an incredible new product from CTMH. They are called Flip Flap Memory Protectors and a pack of 15 is only $3.95. I LOVE them. They can be lifted up to reveal another photo or hidden journaling.

And the very front.

I tend to be pretty nervous when giving a handmade gift because everyone has different tastes. I'm praying that they will like it.
And another note ... I will be offering custom made accordian albums and/or keepsake boxes on my website - which will be up and running in the very near future (I hope...) The box will sell for $25 and the album for $30. You provide the photos and give me an idea of theme/colors/patterns etc. and I do the rest. I can usually have it completed within 48 hours...if I have a box on hand. Otherwise it will take an additonal week for me to order and receive the box.

Have a fabulous weekend,

Marie with a :-)

I just adore this to pieces! I haven't played with my Flip Flap Memory Protectors yet - you gave me lots of ideas! Thanks!! I still have my memory box ... haven't done anything with that either! I need to find me a scrap buddy so that I will actually sit down and complete a project! 48 hrs! Wow - it takes me that long just to decide what paper to use! You are AMAZING!

What a gorgeous keepsake box and coordinating accordian album, Marie! You did such a beautiful job with this project, and I love your use of the FlipFlaps. I have no doubt that the happy couple will treasure this lovely gift of the heart.
