I still haven't started on this year's Christmas album... I guess that will have to be for after Christmas... But a few weeks ago I created a little minibook documenting Christmas 2010 using Crate Paper's adorable Christmas collection, Bundled Up. There are so many cute elements in this line and the patterned papers are just perfect. I just love the colors and the patterns and had so much fun using them for this minibook!
The base for my minibook is a pre-made chipboard album that I bought at Hobby Lobby. I think it's by Tim Holtz. I cut my patterned paper to fit, and lined it up with the pre-punched holes on the chipboard. Then I used a hole punch to add holes to my paper.
I completed each page with photos and embellishments and a little stitching before lightly attaching them to the chipboard with a gluestick. Then I sewed them in place to make sure they are secure.
On the cover I used this file from the Silhouette store to cut out tree shapes and a cut file by Paislee Press for the title.
The inside of the album includes lots of photos from Christmas Eve and Christmas Day, plus a few from the days leading up to Christmas.
Merry Christmas everyone, and thanks for stopping by! :)
