project {gift album}

back in late february, i hosted a bridal shower for my husband's niece. i used black & white damask with red accents for the decor. as my gift to the bride, i pulled together a quick and easy photo album of the event.

i was lucky enough to find this perfect album at target. i added the ribbon and the "c&j" accent, which was used throughout the shower.

inside the front cover, i used another (larger) "c&j" accent and included a copy of the invitation

the next page included their engagement announcement from the local paper. the remainder of the pages simply contained 4x6 photos slipped into the photo sleeves. nothing fancy. the lines running along the sides allow the bride room to write her own memories or label photos if she chooses.

at the shower, i asked all of the attendees to fill out an advice card for the couple. i designed these in 4"x6" knowing i would be including them in this album. they were placed after the photos.

using a photo album with 4"x6" sleeves is a great way to put together a gift album with just a few creative touches. it's quick, yet still personal.
