Altered CD Pockets

In my Randomness post last month, I mentioned that I enjoy visiting National Parks & Historic Sites to get cancellation stamps in my Passport Book. We learned before our trip last fall that Disney has a passport book for Epcot. I almost forgot about it while there until Trent reminded me. We found one at a gift shop and, admittedly, it was more for kids, but we had a fun time visiting all eleven "countries" in the World Showcase getting cancellation stamps. (I think we amused the cast members by being the only adults doing this. LOL)

I wanted a way to include the passport in my album that allowed it to be pulled out. My first thought was a library pocket. I've looked in stores & online since the trip and have not been able to find one that is the right size. Last night in Target, I stumbled across a package of paper CD sleeves by greenroom eco. Finally a good impulse buy. ;) They are the perfect size.

I altered a red one to hold the passport and adhered it inside the front cover of the album:
Supplies: greenroom eco CD sleeve; Making Memories sticker & rub-on letters; Foof-fa-la rub-on; My Mind's Eye rub-on letters; Martha Stewart Crafts sepia pen. Inspired by Apr 23 of dw2008.

I altered a second sleeve to hold a CD with photos from the trip:Supplies: greenroom eco CD sleeve; Making Memories sticker & rub-on letters; Li'l Davis rub-on letters; miscellaneous camera die cut from stash. Inspired by Apr 18 & 23 of dw2008.

  2. Sarah, what an awesome idea. I would've broken down and just made a pocket out of cardstock I think, but the CD pockets are of course less of a challenge. You always come up with something unique. This is why I left you something special on my blog this morning.

    I hope you have a Terrific day!
