An Address Book

I've been wanting to create an address book for quite some time, but I haven't found the right collection to play with. That all changed when I received the Simple Stories "100 Days of Summer" collection in the mail. The papers are gorgeous and there is a cute house that's perfect for the cover! I actually cut out one of the houses from a journaling card, framed it, and then added the house sticker from the sticker sheet on top for some dimension. It kind of looks like the trees are in the background!

I created the pages for the address book in MS Word - now I just need to start filling them out!

This chipboard mini album by Maya Road came with envelopes and I knew that one would be perfect for holding stamps. I may also put my return address labels in another one! If you're using an album that didn't come with envelopes, you can always adhere one to one of the inside covers.
