Christmas Album

This album was another make from Carolyn's Christmas in July Stampin' Up retreat last weekend. The Album itself is just two pieces of 12"x12" Real Red cardstock - cut, scored glued and folded to make this delightful album / card. We used more cardstock in Chocolate Chip, Very Vanilla and Old Olive to decorate the panels and make mounts for photographs to be added later. The patterned papers and stickers are all from the 'Christmas Jingle' collection. The album is held closed with this lovely wide polka dot grosgrain ribbon. In addition we used stamps from the 'Delightful Decorations' and 'Tree Trimmings' sets, gold brads, gold elastic cord and a snowflake sizzlet die.

Untie the ribbon and open out both sides of the cover and this is what you see. The cream panels are where the photographs will go later.

I'm looking forward to working on this to personalise it and intend to give it as a Christmas card / gift.

Thanks for looking. More till to come!
