Season’s Greetings sweet friends. Today, I’m sharing a colourful Christmas Mini Album inspiration for Paige’s, Silhouette Design Team and I’m pretty sure I used bits of every collection Paige has ever done, ha!
I envisioned a Christmas Tree filled with memories and used Paige’s Half Christmas Tree cut file cut from White AC Cardstock to make the covers. I traced a triangle around the cut file in Silhouette Studios but eliminated the square under the tree. I only included the star on the front cover so the album could open and close. I spray-glued a plain triangle and randomly sprinkled glitter all over it. This became my backing to the cut file.
Once the covers were done, I made holes for stitching and chain stitched a boarder around them with 6 strands of DMC B5200 (it’s whiter then white).You also might have noticed, there’s nothing else on the cover. I didn’t think it needed anything else and looked pretty as is. Do mini’s have to have a title? I think you can tell it’s about Christmas by the design. The one adornment, a pretty tassel from Bloom Street.
The pages are tied together with organza ribbon from my stash. Inside the front cover is Paper 11, a favourite from Go The Scenic Route. I used the bulbs cut out of the cover to embellish here. I coloured them with Archival ink and strung them on some gold thread. The foiled phrase is from the Pick Me Up Chipboard Stickers. The opposite page is made with the photo of my little friend Anna. I put a message directly on top.
The next page features a brand new Christmas cut file from Paige, the Season’s Greetings banner. The left page is Paper 24, the right page is Paper 8, both from Horizon. As are the Epoxy Stickers next to the photos. I used three of the snowflakes punched out of the covers to embellish, each topped with an Enamel Dot from Go The Scenic Route
My little gal pal has four kitties and they’re a big part of the family. Naturally they needed a page all to themselves. Paper 19 on the left and Paper 5 both from Horizon are covered in paw prints (just like our hearts). They’re Paige’s Paw Print cut file. “HO HO HO” is spelt with Foam Mini Thickers from Paige’s Whimsical Collection. I’m so glad I bought three packs, they fit everywhere! Photos of Anna’s kitties are tucked in an envelope made with Paige’s Mini Envelope cut file.
Finally, it’s Elfie Time ! The last page features a fold out album of some of Earls antics. He’s Anna’s Elf and really cracks me up some days. I sewed a photo sleeve out of a page protector. The ribbon, taped around back and tied up front, keeps Earls Elfie’s all tucked away neatly. Not that he cares about being neat !
Opposite Earl is another new Christmas cut file by Paige, Mug is filled with treats that Earl can’t seem to resist. It’s covered with a paper from the Turn The Paige 6×8 Paper Pad (and still available, yah). The Puffy Word Stickers from Bloom Street are saying, “Hey Earl” ! The background papers are both from the Horizon collection, on the left is Paper 10 and on the back cover is Paper 15.
Ever so grateful you came by and hope you found
some inspirations for your own pretty Christmas creations!!
