Hello Everyone! Its Juanita and I have a fun little album project to share. I had never heard of a rolodex album before but pinterest has shone me the light and I wanted to give it a whirl. Now, I don’t have an old rolodex lying around and I certainly was not ready to go out and buy one ($45, no thank you!) but I was able to find a vintage recipe organizer at my local thrift store and shazaam
So, the idea is that you treat each little rolodex page as a mini album page. You have tons of room for lots of pages and my son really likes spinning them around. Heck, I like spinning it around too!
I want to share with you lovely people how I made this page.
I started with three basic paper goodies from the July Planner Kit; the anchor card, the sticky notes and the decorative stickers.
I cut the anchor card in half, grabbed some sandpaper and cut out a little island for my lighthouse and crab. See the precise placement of the lighthouse to cover up the anchor? Clever girl.
Next, I took three sticky note pages, rounded the corners and glued down some of my favorite pictures of my son and I at the beach in Hawaii. I then grabbed some more sticky notes, cut out the anchors and repositioned them on top of the pictures for a little layering action. Ooh-la-la
I noticed the sticky notes were a little too thin for the photos so I mounted them on some white cardstock. Then I attached the photos pages on the album page with washi tape. I stacked them on top of each other to make a mini flip album. Wait! an album within an album…its like albumception!
And that’s it!
I did want to quickly show how you can really do anything with the pages.
Here I made an album shaker page with some memory cards.
Here I made an album page that is a push pull card with my ten favorite things about our trip to Hawaii.
This is a super fun way to get some memory keeping done and it’s a fun to display!
