January 3, 2011: Christmas Mini Album


This is the last Christmas project (I think) :). I don't know - I keep finding just one more!

This was the door prize I made for my December class. I don't make a lot of mini albums, and I really don't know why as I love making them and people love receiving them!

To make this one I followed an AMAZING tutorial by Kimberly Van Diepen - I think I got it from http://www.craftyperson.com/ last Christmas. Such a simple album, but a huge wow no matter what the occasion.

For the cover, I used Textured Cherry Cobbler Cardstock and dolled up the spine with Frostwood Lodge Designer Series Paper. I used a spare card front from another project that I had in my scrap pile - I love doing that! It's Whisper White stamped with Christmas Postcard in Early Espresso, and colored in with colored pencils. The edges are embossed with the Framed Tulips Textured Impressions Embossing Folder and the Big Shot, and highlighted with a Sponge Dauber and Garden Green. The ribbon is Cherry Cobbler Seam Binding embellished with a So Saffron Subtles Button and Early Espresso Bakers Twine.

The inside pages are also Cherry Cobbler Cardstock, and the flower is punched with the Blossom Petals Punch in Garden Green, Whisper White and Cherry Cobbler Cardstock. I fancied it was a modern poinsettia, but basically I just made it up! :)

I covered each inside page with squares of the Frostwood Lodge DSP. I did add the stamped house from Christmas Lodge in Garden Green, and I matted two of my DSP panels on Scalloped Square Die Cuts in Whisper White to add a little interest. As a final touch I added a strip of Whisper White punched with the Lace Edge Border Punch.

Just a fun little Christmas Album. :)
