I'm so excited to share this project with you. I joined a mini album swap at convention. My first group was easy, I did a Coaster album which I shared with you earlier in the month. But for my second group, I had this wild idea to do a Chipboard word album. I must confess, I had never done a word album but had seen them at a scrapbook retreat back in February. So, I contacted Ron at Icut4U and asked him to make me a book that said CELEBRATE (the theme of this year's Stampin' Up! convention as we celebrate 20 years). He told me he doesn't normally do books longer than 7 letters because it makes the first couple of pages pretty unusable but I told him I understood but that was out theme afterall, so he agreed to do it. Not only that but since I wanted EVERYTHING in my books to be Stampin' Up! materials, he agreed to cut my books from the chipboard backing that comes off of our Designer Series Paper. He is currently working on setting up a website it will be http://www.icut4u.com/ If it's not up yet, you can contact him at ICut4U@tx.rr.com to place an order. He will do custom books and has several word books in his files. Here's my Celebrate book. All materials are from Stampin' Up!

All I have to say is Whoo Hoo!!! I was one of the lucky swappers that got this beautiful book. I can't wait to print some pictures so I can add them to my album. Thanks for being such a wonderful swapper!
