Christmas Town Mini Album | with Nicole

Hi there Doodlebug fans! Nicole here to share a fun and interactive Christmastown project with you!
I wanted to come up with a creative way to use the Christmastown collection Cards & Envelopes set so I decided to stitch together a few of the envelopes and cards to create this fun mini-album to capture the memories of the season! Add a few odds & ends or chit chat tags, Doodlebug Twine and a few mini clothespins to hold the album together.
I started by stacking up the cards/envelopes to create as even of a design for the minibook as I could, trimming off the flaps from the envelopes. The envelopes are great to create little pockets to tuck memorabilia or notes to Santa in.
Throughout the album, I added in journaling cards from the Christmastown Christmas Jammies patterned paper, and added in journaling lines, so I could add things throughout the month easily.
You can add in this & that stickers, sprinkles or mini paperclips to add little items to the corner of the album or just to decorate. You can add it a flippable page to add more photos or journaling by adding patterned paper, folded in half and adhered inside one of the pages. I stitched mine in place - you just need to be strategic about when and where you stitch.

I left spaces on each page spread, so I can print off photos from the holidays and include them inside later.
Some of the cards have little flaps on them so you can tuck them to stay together. This pink card flips open and as the journaling card is popped with foam adhesive, the pink tab tucks under the journaling card to stay in place.
Add a few Doodlebug Jewels to journaling cards to add a little holiday sparkle!
I hope you will use some of your Doodlebug Designs cards & envelopes to create your own mini album and document your holiday memories!
