Scrabble is one of my favorite family games! I’ve been collecting the old games for YEARS now and made lots of things with the wooden Scrabble tiles. But I still had all those boards left. I’m such a
hoarder collector that I didn’t even like throwing away the boxes! So I came up with these Scrabble Christmas card albums.

Each year’s album is a little different. My favorite is the one with the Scrabble tiles on the front. It’s probably the most sturdy, too. I punch holes and set eyelets in the boards with my Crop-A-Dile. Then I just add a title and use whatever leftover craft supplies I have around that year. Book rings hold everything together.
I love going back through these and seeing the family photos and how everyone has changed. Sometimes it’s a little bittersweet when we see loved ones who have passed away or couples that aren’t together anymore. But mostly it’s fun to see how kids have grown up through the years.
The card in front of this album is one of my favorites. It’s actually one we mailed out a few years ago. Jordann designed it! (Leave a comment if you’d like her to design one for you… maybe I can talk her into it!)
The album below was made from one of the old Scrabble boxes. You can tell it hasn’t held up as well.
