One of my very favoritest parts of Christmas are the photos --- namely our family photo that makes its debut on the cards we send to family and friends. I put them all together in this cute little mini album, using a mix of board bases from doodlebug design.
I used a camera doodad to focus on the photo portion of this mini album. Then, I used the home for the holidays collection on each page. I love the patterns of this collection, along with the mix of grey with red and green. LOVE.
I also layered two board bases together, using foam adhesive tape to separate the layers. I piled in white sequins behind a plastic sheet. I just like how it reminded me of a camera and the tone-on-tone textures is awesome.
The opening page is this cute snowman, welcoming you to our book of memories. I covered a shaped board page with patterned paper, then added stickers, brads and sprinkles.
One holiday tradition that will never grow old is sending Christmas cards to family and friends. A few years back, we decided that photo cards were the best suited for us and we've enjoyed them each year --- sending and receiving.
Velvet letters and banner alphabets are perfect addition to this page. The present brad was from several years back, but works so well with the touch of pink in the patterned paper.
Our cards are printed 4x6 and are just perfect in this mini album. I stitched a fancy frill sticker between the patterned paper and the photo.
Super simple page for 2014 --- photo on left with doodletwine and the right page has a circular Santa sticker. The smaller page in between these two was created by using pattern paper as the background, then layering it with washi tape of snowflakes and Christmas text. I stitched a square over the tape and added the camera, to once again depict the phototaking of this album.
I love that the book is already ready created and all I have to do is add this year's photo [and a photo from 2014, 2015 and 2016].
Have you created any Christmas albums this year? I'd love to see them.
