Hi, I’m Megin of VMG206 where I love to share my Paper Crafting and DIY Projects. I love lots of photos and a good tutorial – since I’m a very visual person. I’m so happy to be here at Titi Crafty hanging out with my friend Camila! I hope to make a few new friends while I’m here, too. Today I’m sharing The Perfect Album ~ Do you have the perfect Photo or Scrapbook Album? If so, you are lucky!
The Perfect Album by Megin of VMF206
I know we all want a fabulous Album to hold our treasured photos – such as a beautiful Wedding Album or an adorable Baby Album. I know I have gone to the store to purchase an Album and been totally overwhelmed with the selection. But I left without purchasing an album – because I couldn’t find one that was just perfect. Please don’t let not having the perfect album stop you from scrapbooking. So many times I hear people say, “I want to scrapbook but I just can find the right album. I have so many pictures…“
Find. A. Scrapbook. Then Create the Perfect Album ~
Just start out with something simple. I tend choose an album with a basic linen fabric in a nice neutral. However, for a Wedding Album, I like to use a classic black leather. Whatever you choose, just make sure it is sturdy and will stand the test of time – literally. On your bookshelf or coffee table ~ out where everyone can enjoy it! Here’s a basic Linen Album in a neutral color ~
Now comes the fun part ~ making the album your own.
I love to dress up a basic album with a fancy ribbon band and tag embellishment. It should come as no surprise that I use my monogram ~ but you can use whatever personalizes it for you. Be creative and have fun!
Here are a few samples of my albums and the ribbon bands ~

Here’s a little pattern for the tag that I use ~ so simple!
I used a light piece of cardboard. It’s 5 inches by 2-3/4 inches. I just clip off a corner. Then I take that corner and place it on the other side, before cutting, and use it as a guide. Then punch a hole ~
Then cut some decorative paper, glue and embellish as desired. And here are some close ups of the embellishments ~
This is a fun, quick and inexpensive way to jazz up and personalize any Photo or Scrapbook Album! It also makes a wonderful gift idea ~ create a personalized, decorative band to add to an empty album to give as a Wedding or Baby Shower gift! I hope you have enjoyed this project.
