Default I need your advice...

I am making a scrapbook for my DS teacher. I had each child write what they liked best about Mrs. Thornton and then I took a picture of each child. I plan on putting the picture on one side and what that child wrote on the other side of the page......So now my question is should I put this in a 6x6 Stampin' Up album or make a matboard book. I have a 6x6 linen book, but thought I could save a little $$$ and put it in a matboard book. Then I thought am I being cheep? O.K. enough of me what do yall think???????????

I bought a very nice album from a craft store near me. It was at AC Moore for 3.99. Does not look cheap and you have a choice of 4 pastel colors.

As a teacher, I say the actual book matters a little, but I think what will be considered and appreciated the most of all is the work and thought that you put into it! The pictures and words will be so cherished. That is soooo nice and thoughtful of you! I say you do matboard if it is less expensive and handmade is always better!

I vote for using matboard, Julie! It's cheaper and you can embellish it however you want. No matter what you do with it, it'll be cherished .

I think it kind of depends on how many kids there are. With my matboard journals I've found that once I start getting more than 5 or 6 page protectors in that I have to go crazy with the cardboard spacers or the book is all floppy...


It sounds like a neat idea and I'm sure the teacher will care much more about what's in the book than how it looks!

I was going to say matboard. They are so much cheaper and so cute. She'll really like that. Since the kiddos probably won't be touching the insides once she has it, I doubt you would even need page protectors. I made dh a book for Valentine's Day and I didn't put page protectors on it and it's still fine. But, so far, only adults have looked at it. We don't have any kids yet and the nieces and nephews don't really care to see dh and I in pictures throughout our relationship I guess.
