Scrapbook Keepsake Books, Part 2

I’ve had a lot more interest in these little Scrapbook Keepsake Books than I ever thought I would! Click here for the original post. So I thought I’d post some more photos of the ones I’ve already done, and show you some of the embellishing you can do…

Scrapbook Keepsake Books
This is my baby book. I added a notepad to all of my books, and I use them to record things. I just punched them on using brads.

For my recipe book, I used stickers to label each pocket.  I also like to add punch outs to the strings.

For the tie on this one, I stamped the string.

    Thanks for this and link to first post… very good instructions, clear photos and fun embellishment ideas! I was wondering how you use the page that is the bottom of the envelope, since it will be closed off after “binding”. Sorry, I don’t have a blog to receive your answer!
