Yesterday was my husband’s birthday, and each year I try to come up with a creative card for him. This year I thought a Mega Man one would be fitting seeing as I have been working on a Mega Man quilt for him for the past few months. Since he’s also a computer guy, I wanted to incorporate something else nerdy, so creating a personal QR Code sounded like a perfect idea. With a Google search you can find numerous websites that will help you to create one on your own that you can print. It took me maybe a minute to get one.
And when you scan the QR Code? It takes you to this picture:
Exactly a month ago, my little brother (who isn’t so little anymore) got married! I had hoped to have this darling album made for his beautiful wife a few weeks after they got engaged back in December, but then I took 19 credit hours this semester, volunteered a few times at the elementary school, and helped to coach Girls on the Run, and ran out of time to get it done when I wanted to in January, and even before the wedding in April. Since my sister-in-law has officially gotten the album, I can now share it on here! I can’t believe I don’t have a million of these little Instagram Albums, because they are darling!!!! You don’t even need to use photos in them, they could be used as a quote book. My brother and sister-in-law’s wedding colors were pink, cream/ivory, and gray, so the “greige” album (pretty clever color name eh? In case you can’t figure it out, it’s grey and beige…) fit pretty well with the color scheme out of all the albums. Enough talking, here is the album!
I left extra pages at the end of the album for other Instagram pictures she wants to add, or for engagement pictures that could be cut in a square shape to add to the back. I got all the pictures printed at Walgreens, since they have a 4×4 shaped print now. The 2×2 ones were edited in a collage online to make them 4×4, so once I had them printed all I had to do was cut them into the smaller squares. I think this turned out darling, and I’m just starting to work on the matching wedding album to go along with this one too.
If you’re like most scrapbookers, you probably have a lot of little paper scraps that you aren’t quite willing to part with. I mean, sometimes paper is expensive, and I hate to throw something away that I could use again, so might as well find some way to use it right? Well that’s what I did with this card, I found a way to use up scraps of some of my favorite paper 🙂
It has officially been over 3 weeks since my little brother got married, and finals are finally over, so now I can start sharing some of the cute things I’ve been making. This is actually the card I intended for an engagement card to go along with the mini album I made, but since it took me nearly the entire semester to actually work on and finish it, I guess the card can be a wedding card 🙂
