Luck O’ the Irish Card
By Melony Bradley

Some of the most fun in scrapbooking can be had in starting and completing a small project in one day! This “topless” album is just such a project and the extra good news is, it’s also what I call a “two-fer.” From one 6x6 post-bound album, you get two mini-albums. Here’s how you do it:
