address book download | my mind's eye

For the May mini album feature at My Mind's Eye I went old school. As in no matter how much I love the iPhone and my super awesome Mac computer, I continue to keep a paper address book.

And now that Isabella and Victoria are school-aged, they often come home with teeny tiny scraps of paper with names and phone numbers on them and have no place to keep them. And it's not as if I allow them to make many phone calls, but they seem to keep coming home with phone numbers. Knowing that I had already designed address book pages {get your download here} that just happened to be 6x6, I was excited to pull out the Kate & Co. Oxford Lane Paper Pad and get crafty. Victoria LOVES blue, so this range of colors was a perfect fit for her.

It's like I was meant to create an address you see that adorable retro chipboard telephone? Using the negative shape left from the shapes I cut for my inside divider pages, I gave it a bit of dimension and popped it off the cover page with another Chipboard Element underneath and added those fit-with-everything Enamel Dots.

DESIGN TIP  |  sandwich a piece of chipboard between your two 6x6 papers to add extra heft and durability to your cover

Since she's seven, I kept it simple and Victoria's address book has just two sections: friends and family. I die cut my bracket shape and adhered it to one of the 6x6 sheets from the Designer Paper Pad, trimmed a label sticker from the Sticker Accessory Sheet then layered Decorative Buttons before popping on an Enamel Dot.

The inside front cover has one of the super cute shaped stickers from the Sticker Accessory Sheet. Don't forget the back cover! I like to keep the chipboard natural for the back cover and here I added Decorative Tape along the spine and at the left edge to add a little interest.

Will you be kickin' it old school with me this month and create your own address book?
