Decorating for the holidays is one of my favorite parts of the season! I made a quick mini album to display some of my favorite ornaments we've collected through the years. The Pinkfresh Oh Joy! Collection has the perfect mix of classic Christmas icons and colors for this type of project.
To create the cover, cut a solid snowflake die cut to a 4" diameter and embellish with the gold and aqua chipboard stickers. The "merry" title is from the acrylic mirror stickers from the Oh Joy collection - it's my favorite part!
A few die cuts and some patterned paper create the base for this page. The rubber charm sticker is from last year's Pinkfresh christmas collection and it matches perfectly!
Repeating the same shape as the cover, this snowflake features a die cut in the center, a puffy title and some simple stamping.
To make this shaker page, cut a divided page protector on three sides. Then fill with a small photo, tiny star confetti and a handful of embellishments from the Oh Joy collection. Machine sew the top to seal up he pocket.
Showcasing a favorite ornament is as easy as creating a bed of beautiful layers. Patterned paper, a few die cuts and a transparency frame out the photo.
Using a 4x4 photo as a page base is a beautiful way to highlight a favorite photo. Placing the Magic title and some sticker strips in the shape of a Christmas tree adds a nice touch without taking away from the photo.
This snowflake is double sided. There is a square photo of the same size on the back. It's a clever way to add more photos and keep the shape uniform. Always think ahead about both sides!
Making simple books like this is a nice alternative to the grind that a daily December album can become. I find that if I can tackle a project I can finish in one night, just maybe I can go for an entire album!
