#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 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.
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!
