ATC Scrapbook with Page Protectors-Original Design by Debbie Bankston of Debbie's Die Cuts

This was the first ATC Scrapbook I made...I used 4 chipboard ATC die cuts and trimmed my 8 photos to the ATC size to use on each ATC...I then used glue stick to attach each photo to the chipboard ATC...I let them cure out overnight, then with a emory board, I lightly sanded the edge of each photo on each side of the chipboard ATC's...
Once I had all the edges sanded...I just like that look...and it looks great...I used my label maker to add my journaling...since I was using full photos in this book...I didn't want to cover up too much of them...I added some various embellisments to some of the pages...flat backed buttons, etc...
The entire book tells a story from the two day trip to the beach...Sunrise, Sunset and some playtime is all shown...
Once I finished all the pages...Slip each ATC into a page protector, or ATC Sleeve, then I punched a hole in the top left corner of each page...Be sure you are finished with all your decorating before doing this step...You want to make sure each page and sleeve line up correctly...
I used a clear snap ring to bind my book...but you can use lots of other methods as well...I am working on one with my bind it all now...but don't have it finished yet...I added some fibers and ribbon, or as I like to call it "foo foo"... These books will be great to share with family, friends and more...Remember, You are only Limited by Your Imagination...so Imagine the Possibilities...
