Christmas Town Mini Album | with Caroli

I love mini albums, and I love Christmas, so Christmas mini albums are my ultimate favorite project. If we add Doodlebug to this, the result is simply perfection! Today I want to share this mini album I made using pics of the Christmas party I throw every year with my friends. I have told you about it on a previous post here.
In this album I went for a super simple binding with screws, and worked in different levels and types of pages. I really love how dynamic and fun it came out. I closed the mini with a bow, using some grosgrain ribbon as ribbon never gets old! I also made the cover a bit smaller than the rest of the mini, this way you can see through the pages, I think it looks great.

As you may know, I love using vellum for writing my journaling as I love the transparency effect. 
Of course, I decorated the page with a few die-cuts and alphas in coordinating colors.

On some of the pages I cut a big circle and used this as a sneak peek window to the next page. I love the effect it creates! I decorated the page with an insane amount of embellishments and I think this looks cute, what do you think?

Chit Chat packs are a great addition to the decoration of this album. I also love including little phrases here and there, along with photos or even with journaling pages.

With the purpose of making the design more interesting I created one fold-out page and lots of food photos. I baked cookies and cupcakes and we had a cold style egg nog as we are in the Southern Hemisphere so enjoy the cold drinks with the warmer weather.

I included two acetate pages just for fun, and decorated them with even more embellishments. I love how they add more bulk and interest to the album. 

I covered the binding screws using some kraft cardstock, which I scored to make it more flexible.

I am so happy with how this mini came out, it's simple but filled with little all my favourite Doodlebug pieces! I hope you liked it too, if you have any question just leave me a comment.

Have a lovely day!
