September ABC Album - updated with winner

Post by sherelm » Sun Sep 01, 2019 1:22 pm

Congratulations to JAire for winning in September!!! :-D :-D :-D :-D :-D


Do you long term scrappers remember the time, years ago, when we made ABC albums? I came across one when setting up my bookcase at my new house.
It is a Christmas ABC one, where I had "A is for angel on the tree". But I had another page for Airplane, too, bringing the family together for Christmas.

Well I thought it would be fun to do another one! It doesn't have to say "A is for..." It can be your secret. And the topic can be anyone, anything. A mini album or a 12x12, or any size! 

I can't wait to see what your album will be about. What is A, or B or Z for to you?  You do not have to start with "A", you can jump in when you think of a page that you want to do with the theme of your album with any letter.  So if you want to start, say, a family album and "T" is for your husband "Tom", fine! 

And yes, I'll randomly pick for a $5 ACOT gift card for each MONTH. PLEASE ALSO POST in the special gallery when submitting your page . One more thing, if you don't make it obvious what the letter is, please put it in your text. Thanks, have fun!

Sher, i saw this challenge in August and
thought I love this but I was going through a scrapping 'overdone it'

I've decided on making a journal type mini book probably a 8 X 8 for my daughter with a BOM (Book of me) theme. She has been on me for ages to do some pages. I currently have an unfinished Christmas album that I've been sitting on as well.

I'm inspired to finish that album this year and start my ABC album for next year. I may need to do 2 pages a month to be done for next Christmas. I'm excited to get working on my A and B right away.

Good luck! I had so much fun making my ABC Christmas book, that when I was done I finished with one line per page of "Twas the Night before Christmas". So my album is mighty thick!

Thanks for letting us go out of order, Sher.  I wanted to do Boston for my 'B' but won't get up there until next month.  So now I can do another letter and do B in Nov.

You got me hooked on doing a food album - not recipes per se just favorite foods.  Today is "D" for Diner Delights.  I actually have a "Q" page in progress...

This one for "C"  - Celebrate! I have finally figured out "A" - for the ABBA show we went to - music of ABBA. Now I just need to get it scrapped!

My "B" page in the book of favorite foods. I could probably make an entire book about cheese.  In this case it is a grilled blue cheese and bacon sandwich from Tom + Chee.

Here's mine this month! I used a 'B is for Beach' theme. :)

I combined with your Build Me A Layout Challenge.

Here's my page for this month.  I am making a 'Special Places I've Been" album, and I am skipping B for now. C is for Croatia. This place was just awesome. So old, with lots of long alleys and a long main street, all encased by a 1.2 mile long wall. It sits on the beautiful Adriatic Sea. I needed more than one day here to truly see it, but I am glad I got to see a lot of it!

I'm a little late to this party, but I love the concept of an ABC Album.  I have done two in the past but not for a really long time.  I like that we can skip around, too!

I've started my 8 X 8 mini album! I'm so excited and LOVE this project. I am working on the BOM (book of me) as planned and am trying to do it in order as a birthday gift. Since I'm hoping to give it in October next year, I'll do two letters at a time or I might not keep my interest going. I hope that is ok. I'll get my first pages posted soon. Thank you for the challenge! I'm inspired.
