It's a resplendent day to celebrate An ABC Primer! Today, Keri Sallee and Annette Green have such glorious projects for you. What a treat!

First, we have Keri's envelope album using An ABC Primer. We love each and every detail, page, and layer! What a treasure!

"For one of my farewell projects, I wanted to go back to where it all started...with an envelope album. The very first project I ever made with Graphic 45 was an envelope album class using 'Olde Curiosity Shoppe.'

I added a mini album in my mini album fashioned to look like a composition book to go along the vintage school theme.

Next, we have this brilliant An ABC Primer interactive display from Annette! The details and fun elements she includes are to die for!

"I adored An ABC Primer when it was initially released, so I’m thrilled it’s back! I created this fun wall hanging from the ATC Book Box folded open and adhered to heavy chipboard, then added the wonderful papers and a few interactive elements. The collection has so many useful flash cards, book tags, alphabets and such, it was quick and easy to cut elements apart to actually use for educational purposes. In the box’s opening, I created a simple drawer from cardboard covered with paper to hold the interactive pieces. The bottom three tags come with the book box, so after adorning them with papers, I glued an ornate key (which I slowly bent with pliers) to the bottom of the display create a unique hook for the tags." ~Annette

Both are great projects! I love the ABC Primer collection and have used it to create two baby albums:)
