FUN - (Acrylic Mini Album - SOS DT challenge)

After I took these photos of my son on a "wall of graffiti", I knew they'd look really cool in an acrylic album where I could "show through and share backgrounds". But in my illustrious stash of mini-books, I did not have an acrylic book that suited my needs. So, I just did nothing with my idea (except whine to my husband, I guess...lol!).
For Christmas, he had stopped by the local scrapbook store and bought me a few things, including 12x12 sheets of ACRYLIC!!! (thinner than regular acrylic books, but thicker than a transparancy). They were around $2 per sheet, I think.
I used one and cut it to 12x6 to make the 2 inner pages for my book and just used deco scissors on the edge. I used Chipboard scraps for the 6x12 back cover and smaller front cover. I used LOTS of rub-ons and transparancies. Also, notice the "swirl" on the first acrylic page (at the top)? It's an acrylic stamp...dh bought it for me too (it was only $1, so I figured that's about the normal price of an embellishment anyways, right?).
On the acrylic pages the photos are back to back (so one photo is directly behind the photo on the front that you can see).


  1. THIS IS SOOOOOOO cute. I loved the photo and now to see the whole book done.. you better bring this on Friday so I can see the whole thing... I can tell I am gonna totally steal your idea! love it!

  2. What a super cool album! I haven't tried an acrylic album before for this has given me some mojo!
