Christmas Mini album

Good morning all!  I want to share the Christmas mini album I completed.  I've never done one of these before, but I loved the look of all the mini albums I've seen lately, so I thought I'd give it a try!  Just a quick note:  all the paper I used are from my scrap stash!

This is the cover!  I used my Quickutz handtool and a leaf die to make the wreath, and a Quickutz alphabet for the letters.  I tied a simple bow and added some red gems.

Page 1:  I used a christmas tree die cut and added gems and stickles for the decorations.  Love how the leaves from the cover border this page!  The bg paper is some left over scraps from an old, old paper pack!

Page 2- I used the Quickutz handtool and the candy die.  I alternated red and green swirls. 

Page 3- Quick and simple, I glued my paper down and embellished with stickles. 

Page 4- I used a Santa die cut on this page.  I haven't decided how to embellish Santa yet...ideas are still churning!

Page 5- I had the present/bow die cut in other colors, but they didn't match my paper, so I traced around them on paper that matched and fussy cut it out.  I love how Santa seems to be peeking around the side on this one.

Page 6- Love these poinsettia fussy cuts.  I bought them years ago at my LSS's yard sale.   What a great find!

Page 7- The holly fussy cuts were purchased in the same pack as the poinsettia flowers.  I love how they coordinated with my green paper.

Page 8-  I used a cardstock bg on this one with plaid and glittered paper.  I embellished with a tag, sticker and a little tin star! 

Page 9- This is the last page.  The tag was purchased at the LSS's yard sale a few years ago, and the paper is from my scrap stash. 

Nothing has been titled yet!  I'll add journaling, titles, and any extra embellishments when I add the pictures.  I loved putting this together and can't wait to do another one.

Have a wonderful day my friends.
