Instant Brag Book - Perfect for Grandmas!

My project today is a little brag book that I made to show off pictures of my sweet grand children.  I used Graphic 45 Sweet Sentiments collection and another Kathy Orta tutorial.  This time it is one of the bonus projects from Kit Club 11.

I used Babyville snaps for the closure.  Snaps will only work if you use a very sturdy material (that will not tear) for the cover.

I attached the 3x5 cards to the end of each page using one of Kathy's special hinges.  These flip open so that I can add a pic or journalling.
The back of every page has a pocket for journal cards and photos.

The base pages are a good size to fit regular 4x6 photos.
I love my local scrapbook store.  I found most of what I needed to make this book at Scrapbook Central in Courtenay. Shop local people!!

I inked all the edges with Distress Dusty Concord. The cover is made with Kraft-Tex!  I am so excited that Scrapbook Central is bringing in a supply of Kraft-Tex.  Come check it out!

I loved making this project and I can not wait to collect pictures of my 7 grandchildren!

Happy Scrapping!
