2012 Christmas Mini Album

  Welcome paper lovers, today I have a mini Christmas album I made. I found this house shaped chipboard album by Crayola while going through my.....mess of supplies. I think I picked it up from the $1 bins at Michael's. See hoarding oops I meant saving scrapbook supplies is good!

I wanted to put a quick book together for our holiday photos this year. So I pulled out my Cricut and my trusty old Joys of the season cartridge and got to work.
To make it simple and fast I went with the same design for every page.
           Using different colored papers, I cut a square mat for each page. Then I scalloped and inked the edges of the mats. Next I cut a strip of paper and tri-folded the paper to fit on top of the scalloped mats. Now I have room for lots of photos!

I added a brass brad and slider to hold down the tri-folds.

  For the cover of each tri-fold I cut a different Christmas "do-dad" like the ornament below and glittered it up. Each tri-fold is like a little book....just waiting for pictures to fill it up!

  I wrapped some frilly Martha Stewart Eyelash yarn around each tri-fold to add some texture.

     For this project I used Authentique paper from the Festive line.  What great quality paper. This is the kind of paper that just makes me want to create something special. I also used some We R Memory Keepers paper from the Peppermint Twist line another great line of paper. All the paper for   this project was purchased at Paper Daisies
 Thank you for stopping by, let me know what holiday projects you are working on or what line of paper is motivating you to get creative.  Have a great day, Lori
