Happy New Year!!! And a sneak peak!

I had a lot of those $1 photo albums from Walmart left over from a previous project and wanted to try to use some of them. I decided to make some brag books for the grandparents for Christmas. I REALLY liked how they turned out - so much so that I made an extra set to keep!!

I made one for each of my girls. The first one had a picture of my oldest in a circle mat. So for the second one, I needed something different so I reached for my Cottage Cutz. How cool is this postage stamp shape?!!!! It is almost 4" square and has an embossed square on the inside. I thought it would make a perfect photo mat for my brag book. I can see myself using this new shape over and over again! Sooooooooooo many possibilities!

Thanks for checking in today and from everyone here at the Cottage Blog...

Happy New Year!!!!

Well, color me creative! Ruth Ellen, you did a wonderful job thinking outside the box on this one! I get so wrapped up in what stamp to put in the middle of that die, that I didn't even think of a picture! Great project, and beautiful job!!!
