"Family Memories" Concertina Book

I work part-time at the Recollections scrapbook store and associates were given the option to take a packet of the new fall line papers and product and design a project. These will be reviewed by the corporate office and some will be chosen for an upcoming online gallery.

I received the packet just a few days before the deadline of July 31 and this is what I came up with - a double-sided concertina book using the fall papers, rubons and diecut trading cards and journaling cards. The book was a Pine Cone Press "naked" kit. I made this so the book can open from either side. I used the back side of the trading cards so that tiny individual family photos could be placed in the center openings. The lined journaling cards are for adding memories and notes. This was fun and the new papers are gorgeous - not the typical fall papers ! They are double-sided too which gives you double the possibilities! They will be debuting at our Open House this weekend.
