Holiday Cheer Over Here!!
Hi friends, It’s Dorymar today I’m back to share with you a super colorful and fun mini album with the Say Cheese Christmas Collection. This collection between the bright colors has a touch of black, this is why I selected the 6x8 Black Leather Album .
For the cover I used a red and white stripe 1.5” ribbon and created a big bow in the top edge of the album. I added three jingle bells in the center of the bow and hanging with twine I added a tag with a Christmas feeling. For the title I used the Merry Christmas Sticker.
This album doesn’t include the page dividers so I went ahead and incorporated my own. To create the page divider on the right I selected the b-side of the Magical Holidays paper and cut it at 6x8. In the top, I added a 3¾x12 stripe folded at 3 and 6 to create an open side belly band. The belly band hold a 5x7 card to add my pictures and journal.
I created a fun cluster of die cuts at the top of the belly band to open it. The inside of the belly band has space for three pictures (one 5x3” and two 2.5x3”). For the title of this page I used the “merry” word from the chipboard stickers.
In the following pages I incorporated de Fun Words metal dies to from the Say Cheese 4 Collection. I think they are very practical, and you can use them as many times as you can. For the right page, I had to cut the FUN word from the Magical Holidays paper and then, I used the Making Spirits Bright as a base and two more different patterned papers for additional layers. Then I decorated it with die cuts and phrase stickers.
These pages are one of my favorites in this project, on the left page I created a flap that opens to the side with one of the 4x6 cards that the collection includes. For the pocket page on the left I had to cut the word "magic" in black and created a beautiful background incorporating twine and buttons.
I created the page on the right reducing the "Best Christmas Ever" paper to 10 ¾ x 8” and folded it in 6” to create an open side page. On top of the page, I created a 4x4 pocket with one of the 4x4 journaling cards. I added some of the fun die cuts with foam tape to decorate it.
One of the traditions of Christmas is to give gifts to your family and friends, that is why in Christmas collections gifts can’t be missing. For the left page I made some gift pockets and when you pull up the top of the gift you discover space to add your photos and your journal. Its super cute and fun.
I decorated the top of the gifts with the beautiful poinsettias flowers that the bits and pieces pack includes, all are glued with foam tape to give the dimension that I love so much.
I can't stop incorporating the beautiful 2x2 cards that the collection includes, all are full of beautiful designs. I added to my album one 2x2 Insta-Pocket Pages to add space for this stunning 2x2 cards. They look fantastic!
You will love this collection for any of your holiday fun photos, it’s colorful, bright, fun and so beautiful!!! Thanks for stopping by and I hope this project inspired you to create your own one!
