I just finished two more mini albums using Graphic 45's Nutcracker Sweet collection. I bought everything that they had this collection except for the stamps. So far I've been able to create three 6 x 6 - inch books. Now I'm going to work on some smaller albums. You can see my first album here.
I decided to use rings for my binding this time. On the cover I used one of the chipboard pieces and some display trim corners from 7Gypsies. I tied some ribbon and seam binding onto the rings. I also made a charm using my Epiphany Shape Studio. I chose one the of the gingerbread images from one of the papers.
This book has 12 pages which include the inside front and back cover. I've added trim with ribbon from Webster's Pages and Making Memories throughout the book. May Arts Ribbon was also used.
Bling from Webster's Pages, Hero Arts, Recollections and Queen & Co were used on photo mats here and there.
I added two Kraft envelopes with an A2 card inside (4-1/4 x 5-1/2 - inches) for additional room for photos, journaling or memorabilia. The next three photos show the pattern paper on the card.
I added a pocket with an images I cut from one of the card stock sheets. Inside of the pocket I added two tags. One made from a Tim Holtz die and the other one from a Sizzix die.
I left some pages blank for larger photos to be added.
Another kraft envelope and card on the left page. On the right I've added three photo mats measuring 4-1/2 x 5-1/2 - inches for added photo space. A larger photo can be adhered behind the mats. The next four photos show the second card and the photo mats.
This is the back cover. I just embellished it with a sticker from the collection. This is a very fun collection with very unconventional Christmas colors!
I love making books! I do make so many that I can't keep them all. I have a wall of shelves in my craft room with all the books I can't part with. This book will be for sale here.
I'm planning to post my third 6 x 6 -inch book using this collection tomorrow, so check back if you're interested in seeing it. That one will also be for sale. If everything goes well today I plan to make a video of both books. You can keep checking my YouTube channel here to see when they are posted.
Thanks for stopping by!
