School Days Project Finished

With August here, we all know that those “Back to School” days are just around the corner.  I wanted to make a school themed album that I could put my grandson’s pictures in and this is what I came up with.  I just love the Graphic 45 ABC Primer from last year so I thought this would fit perfectly with my chalkboard slate design.

Inside is the paper bag album with many places for photos and journaling.


I really enjoyed making the beads for the abacus out of paper.  For those of you who are unfamiliar with an abacus….it’s a counting frame that was used to teach arithmetic and counting.  The beads are very simple to make and I thought it complimented the vintage look of this project very nicely.

I have a few more details to add to the actual album and then I will post some more pictures for you.  I am also putting together a tutorial for sale for this project.  More information on that shortly also 🙂


Happy crafting everyone!
