My 30 Days of Lists album using an old book! | The Nerd Nest

I participated in the December 2015 round of 30 Days of Lists and I’m here to share the second half of my album with you!

I kept it simple this round with a handmade minibook from an old book. On each spread I included an Ashley G number card, a 3×4 blank card wrapped in thin washi tape (mostly from Freckled Fawn), and number label die cuts from an old Studio Calico kit.

Here is the second half of the book (you can see the first half here):
