Altered books for Christmas Card photos

Hello friends!
Today I thought I'd share with  you a little something I do with my Christmas card photos.(After they have done their time on the front of the refrigerator of course :)
I love photo Christmas card photos, and it seems like they just get more and more popular.
It seems the front of the refrigerator is the place of honor for them in the beginning, right?  After that what happens?  Into the photo box?
Well, I've put mine into a book for the last few years.  That way they can sit out in the living room where I have them handy to show off the family photos to company.
I have a "how to" up on the Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L blog today on how I created mine.  You can make them as simple  or as involved as you like.
Here is the link to the tutorial

I share more of the pages and information over in my post on the Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L blog. But here is a couple of photos of pages  so you get the idea.

In previous books I've used more of a Christmas theme, but in this one I used lots of color!

If you like a more altered mixed media type book, here is one a did a few years ago. It is done in an actually old print book.  I removed about half the pages to allow space and used the other pages as my base to work from.
For this book I drilled holes to add the rings.  This book holds a few years worth of photo cards where as the one above is just for this year.
Here is my original link on my blog to this Altered photo book HERE


Here are a couple of pages, but you can see more by going to the link above.


If you want to make one of your own, you can get more ideas here

It's a great January project don't you think? 

Enjoy the process!

Thanks for stopping by!
