I've bought a plain old boring album at a very cheap price to store all my vacation scrapbook pages. I just want to get rid of the look on the album cover.
Therefore, I've tried to create a layout based on all the places that I've visited during the vacation. I've got cut-outs from travel magazine, brochures and some I've paper-pieced it.
You will never know what you will come up with when you don't need to scrapbook based on photographs. It's so fun. The plastic actually came with the plain album. Therefore, worries about protecting your work. For more detail on this, refer to my "altered album cover" in my tips and tricks section.
