Christmas Mini Album #1

Once I get started on mini albums, it is hard for me to quit.  This is my first Christmas mini of the 2010 Holiday Season.  It is made using a card cut on A Child's Year (a different cut than the Dream Mini from yesterday.)

The front

The first set of pages

The Santa image is mounted on a paper doily that was first inked with silver and then highlighted with green.

The second set of pages

The ovals resemble picture frames.  I used pearls to highlight this one.

The snowflakes are wooden buttons.

Third set of pages

This mat is almost too pretty to cover.  The paper is embossed glitter and the gems around the edge bring a lot of bling to the page.

Fourth set of pages

I love to make the pages very 3 dimensional.  The cluster of flowers in the corner bring a much needed texture to this rather flat set of pages.
The Joy pocket is trimmed with strips of gold ribbon and red glitter domes.

 This frame is decorated with silver balls. 

Fifth set of pages


The opened cover.
