Globecraft Memories Brag Book

The accordion-style Brag Book helps you to capture the best moments of your life, preserve your memories easily, and share them with family and friends.

The Brag Book Kit includes three-layer chipboard book cover, chipboard book back cover, clear 1" deep photo bubble, and decorative display stand.  The album includes high quality cardstock to use as a base for the accordion pages.  Add paper, enamel powders, paint, ink, Piccolo card decor, embellishments, or other items to create a one-of-a-kind display.

For this album that captures the first two weeks of my new nephew's life, I used a textured - almost fabric-like - paper with stitching.  Because the stitching easily unravels once cut, I folded the paper over the edges to secure.  I generally don't do that, but liked the more finished look in the end.

I chose to embellish the pages with simple black-and-white pictures with a bit of green . . . since Ethan's nursery has a "woodsy" theme with birch trees on one wall, I thought green would fit better than traditional baby colors.  Finishing touches included string "pearls" around the frame & front cover edges and Piccolo Card DecorAccents, and Charms - all covered with 24K Gold Enamel Powder.  Piccolo Embellishments used include

   Vintage Hearts Charm Set
   Card Decor Set #1 
   Vintage Holiday Flourishes
   Fabulous Feathers
