Hello, Crafty Friends! My name is Conny, and I'm excited to show you the mini album that I created using the Gingerbread Kisses Collection. If you've been following me for a while, you'll know that I love creating mini-albums. Initially, I planned to make some cute Christmas tags to add to the presents. However, I ended up making a mini-album instead! I just can't seem to help myself. This mini album has plenty of space for lots of photos in the middle, and the tags can also be used for photos or journaling.

Let's get started!  To make the album, I began by cutting two pieces of chipboard for the covers, each measuring 5 1/2" by 4", and another one for the spine that measured 5 1/2" by 1/2". I covered the chipboard with a pink textured 12 by 12 cardstock, trimming it to size while leaving a border all around to stick it to the chipboard (approximately 5/8").

For the album pages, I used a piece of cardstock, measuring 8 1/2" by 5 1/4" for the signature/page in the middle, and a piece of cardstock, measuring 11 1/2" by 5 1/4", scored at 3 5/8, 3 7/8, 7 5/8, and 7 7/8.

To assemble the album, I centered the signature/page in the spine and then glued the scored piece that was scored at 7 5/8" and 7 7/8" to create a tri-fold in the back. The front of the signature has a flip page, measuring 5 3/4" by 3 5/8", that is scored on the longer side at 1/2". I adhered it to the top for the flip-up.

To decorate the front of the album, I used torn paper from the collection, a cardstock sticker with Santa, and enamel dots. For the tags, I added white mats to the front and back of each tag. For the rest of the album, I added cardstock stickers and mini icons. Thank you for reading, We can't wait to see what you create using the Gingerbread Kisses.
