Today I am going to show you a mini album that I made last Christmas. It was before my blogging days. After an entire year- I am still in love with this little album. And all my customers like to look at it when they come to class. The Dashing Designer Series Paper that I used in the book is retired- but if you want to recreate this- you could use any of the Holiday Designer Series Paper packs in the current Catalog or the Holiday Mini.
Here is the cover:
And the inside pages...
And here is a picture of the tags that I put inside the paper bags....
I gave these albums to the kid's grandparents and godparents last year and they were a hit! I know that I displayed by copy all year long!
So here are some details....
-I buy my paperbag albums from ebay. I buy the 6x6 albums and I like to buy the ones that are sewn together as they stay together much better!
-The albums already have the holes punched in them- but if you just add all the pages and then try and punch through them with the crop a dile- it will be too thick. So make the pages and punch the holes before you glue them into the album!
-I used lots of punches and ribbon in this project. The only stamp set that I used was Merry & Bright (still available) for the little reindeers. And the patterned paper is called Dashing- but it is retired.
-I got these pictures taken last year at Portrait Innovations. The outfits were purchased from ebay.
