Library Pocket Album

Several years ago, while working at a local scrapbook store, I had the great privilege of learning how to make a Library Pocket booklet. Basically, what a Library Pocket booklet is, is six library pockets attached together, with a cover and a back put on it. With Christmas approaching fast, I have always wanted to make a Library Pocket booklet and use it as a Christmas card for my siblings. Each tag would have a current picture of my children (I have 5 great kids) and the 6th tag would host a picture of my husband and myself. Then instead of the traditional "family brag" letter, I would write a little something about each child on the back of each tag. The daunting thought is this...I have 6 siblings, my husband has 5 siblings. Oh, and lets not forget each set of parents and grandparents. It really starts to add up.

Well I decided to start making the Library Pocket booklet. I love it! I haven't made one in a few years, and I had forgotten just how dang cute these are...
