25 Days of Christmas Mini Album November 23, 2008

Filed under: Mini Albums — Kathi @ 8:15 am

I decided to play along with Ali Edwards’ December Daily this year.  I started my 25 Days of Christmas album  last weekend and added a couple of pages to it every day last week and now the album is assembled and waiting for me to start taking daily photos on December 1.  I admit – it felt really good to use up some supplies, especially all those numbers that come with the American Crafts Thickers.  So, everything used to create this album already existed in my stash and I didn’t have to purchase a thing.  Well, I will need to get some 2″ binder rings – the blue ones below are just temporary since they are just barely large enough now.

Covers:  The front and back covers of this album are 6×8 canvas board that I purchased at Michael’s (3/pkg.) awhile ago with the intent of using them as album covers.  I had purchased Tattered Angels decorative screens and Glimmer Mist (Robin’s Egg, Burnt Red) from ScrapbookDreamer.com with no special project in mind and it felt good to use them for this project.  After temporarily adhering the screen, I applied Glimmer Mist in Robin’s Egg all over.  I then applied the Burnt Red to the lower right corner over the screen.  I let it dry for a minute and then blended with a slightly damp paper towel.  I love the shabby faded look.  The alphas are American Crafts Glitter Chipboard Thickers in Lax, the sticker is Creative Imaginations, and the round tag is from Denise L. Designs.  I had no problem punching holes through the canvas board with my Crop-A-Dile.

The inside of the front and back covers is covered with paper from Webster’s Pages.  Page 1:  I used a piece of Making Memories 8×8 die cut paper as a template to cut this page.  Three Bugs in a Rug paper; Making Memories die cut; American Crafts Foam Thickers in Cream Soda.

Page 2:  7Gypsies paper; Making Memories tag; American Crafts Velvet Thickers in Black Tie.  I also used my Fiskars Threading Water border punch on the edge of this page.

Page 3:  I used a piece of Making Memories 8×8 die cut paper as a template to cut this page.  Making Memories flocked pattern paper.  The number is also cut out of a piece of MM paper.
