School Days Mini Book/Album

I made this for a co-worker of mine who got into college this year.. Its really hard to get into college here in Finland.. I am so very proud of her..
I thought this was cute, even for a 20yr old..LOL I hope she will like. Its a surprise for her.
this book/album measures 5" X 7"
Here are some close ups I took of the inside.. Lots of room for journaling important dates and events.
I also added some pockets that I made out of envelopes that I covered with paper and embellished.. she can add important forms and applications inside for safe storage.
just another close up of the inside. She can also add photos to these pages instead of journaling if she wanted to.

Here I added a few small photo mats that she can put her best friends photos onto and on the right hand side I added 52 weekly calendar sheets so she can write down her class schedule, homework and work schedule.
just a close up.. added some stickers to enhance the "best buds"..
This the inside of the back cover.
and here is the back of the back cover.
supplies used:
  • Cricut cart: Storybook: framing under title on cover page
  • Papers: DCWV grade school
  • cardstock: red, pastel orange and yello
  • ribbon and fiber
  • binder rings
  • envelopes
  • distress ink: orange and brown
Thank you all so much for looking and dont forget to share some love by leaving a comment.
