Hi, all!  Shellye McDaniel here today sharing a project that I’m so excited about!  Don’t throw out those greeting cards, instead create this “Greeting Card Journal Album”

Album Foundation

To get started I have selected five greeting cards (matching sizes) from the Dollar Tree.  These cards were fifty cents each; you can’t beat that deal!  Plus they’re Hallmark brand so the quality and graphics are very cute.

First I grabbed several different products by Scrapbook Adhesives: Premium Double-Sided Tape 1-inchPremium Double-Sided Tape 1/2-inCrafty Foam Tape BlackKeepsake Envelopes and Adhesive Dots 3D.

Secondly, I prepared the cards (as above) by creating an accordion with the front/backs.  I also trimmed away a small section from the edge of the card so that they would fit nicely.

I placed the Premium Double-Sided Tape 1/2in along the bottom and sides of the card, leaving the top open to make a pocket.

The retro owl card is what I chose to use for the album cover.  I added a die-cut to the center of him with the Crafty Foam Tape Black.

Next, I added Adhesive Dots 3D to the backs of the paper flowers and used them to embellish the owl.

Let me share with you a look at the album pages after all were completed.  You can see the tags that I’ve added to the pockets.

On one of the cards, I attached a pocket from the Keepsake Envelopes Not only does this hide the sentiment of the card, but it adds a spot where I can place ticket stubs or other memorabilia.

On this page, I added a smaller pocket that I filled with glitter before sealing.  These make great shaker accents!
