DIY | Custom Scrapbook Album

Hi guys! Today I'm sharing a fun and quick DIY teaching you how to customize your leather scrapbook album. I mentioned I was going to do this here in my post about planning for this year's Project Life. I decided to customize my 6x12" album this year because they discontinued the gold album that I had loved dearly and used for the past few years of Project Life. The only albums available in the 6x12 size that I could find were green and although I like green, I wasn't ready to let go of my metallic albums quite yet! Watch my short video or read the full step by step tutorial below for a how to so you can get fun colored albums as well!
