365 Projects in 365 Days

My previous New Year's resolution was to be creative everyday with my Cricut, but since I've started my blog 2 years ago I have come across so many new exciting things like stamps, digi stamps, non-Cricut projects using chipboard, stickers, etc. and now my addition is the Silhouette Cameo. I will be posting many pictures and tutorials of all my projects. I will be making scrapbook layouts, cards, tags, embellishments and altered items. My goal is to create 365 projects in 365 days.

#207 Christmas Tree Mini Album

Hello everyone I made a Christmas Tree Mini Album. Please scroll down to read my description.
Here is the front cover . The bell is a necklace and my title is a bling embellishment. The large ribbon bows are from an old christmas card that I removed along with the tiny tree. I added a large red cloth-like brad to the bow.
Here is a top view of the front page and all of my ribbon I used. I put the bell necklace on there so it can close.

Here is the 2nd and 3rd page. I added a snowflake embellishment and a red bow with a pearl. I also added a candy cane embellishment from the Jolees line.

Pages 4 and 5 I put red bows on top with another brad on the left side. All of the candy like stickers on the left side are also Jolee's. Right side I put a candy hanging embellishment and attached it to my binder ring. I sprayed the small envelope which also went with an old card with Glimmer mist and stamped the sentiment that says "It's the most wonderful time of the Year". On the bottom you can see my candy cane colored twine.

Here is a closeup of my Jolees candy cane stickers on page 4.

Here is a closeup of my little envelope with Glimmer Mist and red paint, also my stamping.Page 5.


Page 6 and Page 7 I added snowflake embellishments to the top. Left side I put a Merry christmas sticker on it that had Micro-beads, I also added a faux chipboard button and ribbon that says Naughty or Nice. This is the other side of the page with the candy cane twine. For the right side I wanted this page to hold a pic from a house nearby my house that goes all out for Christmas I found out about their house from watching HGTV and they were on it! So I found these cute Christmas lights also from an old card and I just attached them with regular clear scotch tape.

Here are the light on Page 7....they look real huh?

Pages 8 and 9, left side I added a red bow and a chipboard piece that says Jingle Bells, along with a brad. Right side I put a snowflake embellishment and more hanging candy.

Page 10 (back cover) I love this beautiful red vibrant shimmery paper. I put sitckles on all the white parts and put a large piece of bling on all of the larger white areas of the snowflakes, then I put green bling in the center of all the snowflakes. I also put a large embellishment snowflake on top.

Here is a close up of my bling work!

Here is the top view of the ribbon from the back cover.

Here is the side view you can also see here that I painted every single page edge with red acrylic paint. I am so proud of my self for making this mini this is my 2nd mini album ever! I was so stressed out last time I made one because they were very intimidating to me. I think I got over my fear of mini albums and now I feel like I can conquer the world LOL! My last one took me 2 whole weeks, and this one only took me about 1 day and a half to complete it. In case you were wondering where I got this mini I got it from Michael's $1 bin, it did not come with that large green binder ring (that was in my stash).

I made this Mini especially for Paper Playtime since our challenge this week is CHRISTMAS ANYTHING GOES!
Also if you have not heard of my new challenge blog that I created with my friend Janis it's called Flaunt It Friday's and this weeks challenge we have a cute summery theme going on this week...a little break from this cold wintery weather!
