Hello again, my dear friends!
Some of you might remember this mini album project from the last time I posted it...and some of you won't. I am re-posting it now because because there is a wonderful kit now available at Creative Inspirations that includes everything you need to make an album for yourself. It's the perfect place to put all those fun photos you're taking these days, and will continue to take in the days ahead.
We've had a bit of a break from Creative Inspirations posts. I'm very happy to report that I will be continuing to design for this great store. We have some super fun things coming up in 2014!
This mini album is a sweet little layered Christmas tree. Sue has another version of it, along with a kit supply list in the shop right HERE. You should pop over there and order the kit. Then come back here and bookmark this post. You can use my photos, and the photos in the shop for inspiration for your own creation!
So here's what I did:
This is the cover. After adhering all the papers, I went around both sides of each piece with the gold paint dabber. I also made my first swivel clasp charm to hang from the binding ring.
Here are pages 1 and 2. I decided to decorate all the back pages "upside-down" so that when you flip them over they are actually right side up! lol
On page 1 there is a ticket stamped with the date.
Page 2 has a little swivel ornament set. It's actually some diecut tags.
These are just the right side to document special seasonal events.
Page 3 had two ribbon bands that hold an assortment of stamped tags.
There's also another ticket stamped with "Merry Christmas!"
Page 4 holds a stamped label.
It opens up and has lines with a heading that says "Dear Santa".
A wonderful little spot to list all the gifts received for Christmas.
The bottom of the page also holds one poinsettia
and a gold painted chipboard bird on a branch.
Here is a close-up of the pretty poinsettias that I made.
Page 5 holds a large label that has pine cone branches stamped around the edge.
A few pine branch punches with buttons creates a nice embellishment.
Page 6 holds another mat that's been stamped with snowflakes,
and two more of the poinsettias.
Page 7 is another Baroque mat page.
This one has been stamped with a tree.
Page 8 has a seam binding band that holds a little booklet of the Baroque die.
These are large enough to add photos on the front and the back.
There's also a little dangly charm set hanging from the binding ring.
These charms are also made from tags and have sweet star eyelets.
Here is the back cover.
The seam binding from the previous page is tied in a bow.
I've glued on a sweet little Christmas wreath
and a banner that says Merry Christmas.
Another ticket filled out with my info is adhered to the bottom.
Here is a close-up of my swivel clasp charm.
It holds buttons, mini ornaments, and some jingle bells.
At the bottom is more stamped tags that look like ornaments. The only jump rings I had were a bright silver.
So I turned them red with the help of some alcohol ink.
So there you have it...again! :o)
