Now I'd like to share my project with you!
I created a Christmas Carol album:

The covers are made with corrugated cardboard.
It has been dry brushed with gesso to give it a snowy feel.
I die-cut some layers and added the image on top.
Then I embellished with some poinsettias and leaves.

Here is a close-up of the image.
I added stickles to the fur trim, and glossy accents to the lantern.

I stamped the inside front cover, and all the kraft pages, with music notes.
Then I added some Christmas paper from my stash.

I printed out some of my favorite Christmas carols and adhered them to the pages.

I will only show you a few of the many pages.

I alternated the pages with green and red music notes.

The inside back cover is the same as the front.

For the back cover, I turned the lines of the corrugated cardboard to go the other way.

I used these items from the Cards and More Shop:




I hope you enjoyed my project!
Now it's time to head over to Dunja's blog to see her incredible project!
Enjoy the rest of the blog hop! :o)
