Capturing Christmas Moments Mini Album

This time of year brings many Holiday Traditions. We have a lot of Holiday Traditions in my family and many are not photographed. But there is one that we try to do every year, and that is to record certain pictures that bring us wonderful memories. So I chose to pick  a few pictures from our family albums and display them in this mini album. I left a stamped spot for journaling for each photo to write the story behind each photo. I will pass the album around the table this Christmas and have the family remember each moment captured and I will record it. There is one page I left out of the album, and I will use that one for a photo of my husband and I, when I find the particular photo I am looking for, I will add it to the album. It is lost in a sea of photo memories at the moment.

This is the cover. I chose to die cut poinsettias from the Double Dots papers. I used the dimensional chipboard, sticker and trinkets on the cover as well.


This is a closeup of the flowers. I colored and heat embossed the layers of flowers before assembling. I thought the gold embossing lent an elegance and sparkle to the flowers. I added the jewels to the centers.


I fussy cut a scene from one of the papers and covered the inside of the cover. Then I matted the photo and placed it on the page. I also created tags for some of the photo's and placed them on the pages.


The second set of pages also have the tags with the matted photo's. I used a Noteworthy piece for my journaling space and used the extra flower on the page. The next page has a dimensional sticker that I placed over the cutout on the page.


The next 2 pages also have matted photo's on tags. I colored some seam binding ribbon to string through the tags. I used dimensional stickers, chipboard and Noteworthy on these pages with a couple of extra flowers I created.


The next 2 pages are also have a tag with a matted photo and a Noteworthy Frame that I used to frame one of the photo's. I also lightly inked all of the edges.


 Here is a view of the front and back of the album.
