A Faithbook Idea for Father’s Day {100 Days of Summer Scrapbook Ideas! Day 60}

As much as possible, I like to include faithbooking into my regular scrapbooks – to help remind myself of God’s goodness, and to teach my children about His love. On father’s day, I am especially reminded of God’s love for His children because it is reflected in the way my husband cares for our kids. The kids and I are so blessed by him!

This page was meant for the June challenge over at the Shabby Shoppe blog – oopsie! I am behind schedule, as usual this summer :)! Hopefully I can get on top of things and get in on the July template challenge, due August 2nd. There are soooo many things in the shabby shoppe that I would love to buy if I win that $25 gift card :)!

Happy Father’s Day! (Plus a Mini Book Tutorial)

I have been making so many fun things to help celebrate Dad’s Day :). I’m pretty sure there are veeeeery few Dads who visit here, but I do know of at least two (hi Dad and Chris!), so for those of you who ARE reading – I hope you are having a splendid Father’s Day!! Here are some tokens of appreciation for all the dads in my life :).

Here’s a page for my Dad, using the Dads Rule kit , by Shabby Miss Jenn.

And this is the card I made for him, using lots of goodies from primahybrid.com.

I made this page in honor of my Father in Law, who I have known since high school, and who passed away shortly after Chris and I were married in 2003. His memory is still very much alive with us today!

Hybrid Mini Book Tutorial

Hybrid Mini Album using Dads Rule Album by SMJ Instead of making a card for Chris this year, I created this hybrid mini album, using the Dads Rule quick album by Shabby Miss Jenn. I really love how she put all of these pages together, and I didn’t want to change a thing! I just added lots of photos of Gabe with his daddy, resized the pages down to 3″x3″ and printed them out on two sheets of matte photo paper. I also printed some elements from the Dads Rule kit for decorating the front of the album :). To make the pages, I just used 5 sheets of textured, self adhesive cardstock from a neutral Mat Stack (by DCWV). I cut them into 3.25″x6.5″ strips, folded them in half and stuck the adhesive sides together to make a little book. After I decorated the outside of the book, I used some of the leftover pieces of cardstock to make a little binding for the book. Then I used double sided tape to adhere the printed pages inside the mini book. Lastly, I sanded the edges of the covers, binding and all of the pages. Oh, and I also made the little card that comes with the Dads Rule quick album (not pictured).

 That’s all for now! Don’t forget to let the dads in your life know how much you appreciate them today :).
