Child's ABC album

Letters are alternating primary color die-cuts. Draw border with primary color pens 1/2" from page edge. Adhere die-cut, then write 'is for Artwork' with black pen. Stickers match the subject, not the letter. Example: on the artwork page use crayon stickers; for birthdays use cake and candles.
Use the space between border and page edge to write Nursery Rhymes, Songs, etc. Example 'All around the mulberry bush . . .' on the A page; 'Little Miss Muffet . . .' on the L page; etc.

Using the Above Song in a Sentiments Album

(a sentiments album is about 5 x 7)

Use one color of sticker letters throughout the book. Write the words to the song, A, You're Adorable, across the pages. This makes a great Valentine, anniversary, or baby shower gift--or even a gift for newlyweds, decorated in the wedding colors.

To make an album that the recipient can put their own photos in, adhere a 4" x 6" photo mounting sleeve to each page. Cut various colors of paper into 4" x 6" pieces, then insert into the photo sleeves. The recipient can crop photos and mount on the paper, or insert uncropped photos into the sleeves. You could adhere a larger piece of paper on each page and adhere the photo sleeve to the paper. (Mama Bear)
