Create a Pocket Album to Keep Your Photo Christmas Cards!

I purchased the My Creations Kraft Pocket Album a few months back not knowing what I would do with it but figured I would think of something!  A few weeks ago, I came across a stack of photo cards that I had bound together with a shiny gold ribbon.   I untied the ribbon to look at the cards.  I had saved every photo card that I had gotten over the last several years.  I never could throw away a photo card!  It just seemed odd to throw someone's carefully planned annual photo in the trash!  So I had kept every last one of them.   It was fun to look through the years to see how much my friends children had grown!  This is when my idea hit me!  I would use the pocket album to store these cards!  A pocket for each family!  There are 18 total pockets in this little album.  Perfect!

So I set to work trying to decide how to decorate the front of the album and then I came across Close To My Heart's Video sharing the Pocket Album they created.  My pocket album is inspired by their video which I have shared at the end of the post.



I still need to add family names to each page but at least I've got the front cover done and pictures inside!  Some of the photo cards are taller than the book but I figured that was ok... It just adds interests and intrigues people to take a look inside!
