The one I'm going to share more of is covered with leftover scraps of wrapping paper from making hats at our Mother's Day Tea Party. Since those pictures are included in that book, I thought that was a fun tie in. I also used the little flower punch as a design elements throughout the photo album scrapbook to make it more cohesive looking.Inside the front cover I always include a little note to the grandparents and summarize what's inside the book. Then I print out little descriptions and include them throughout the book as needed. Above are examples of how I decided to caption two consecutive but non related photos.
If I have several photos of the same event, I'll include a journaling page before they all begin. It's not that exciting to look at, just a 4X6 piece of cardstock with a 3.5X5.5 text box over it. I didn't think to take a picture of that kind of spread before I sent this book off. Since they'd be familiar with traditional Easter events, I used one of my journaling stamps to introduce this section of pictures. I like to include some computer generated text as well as stamps for variety. I also try to stay away from over embellishing as that makes the book too thick. I hope you liked my solution for putting a few creative touches on sharing family pictures!
