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.
The next page might be my favourite because I love the colours so much! The background left is Paper 8 from Turn The Page, on the right is Paper 2 from Horizon as is the Epoxy Stickers.
The big quote is cut out of Paper 21 from Turn The Page. That’s Paige’s gorgeous Candy Cane cut file, it’s spearmint. I don’t know if there is such a thing but, ‘this ain’t no documentary”, ha!
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!!

Hello dear friend! So kind of you to leave this message! Thanks ever so much for your lovely wish too. All the best to you and your dad and all those you love most including sweet Jimi . I think we’ve turned the corner on this covid nightmare. We received the first shipment of vaccine from Belgium actually, so bravo to your countrymen and woman for this very special gift, a promise for life to return to normal sometime in 2021. Big Hugs xK

Hello sweet friend! Soooo nice to see your message. I laughed when I edited the tag for Elfie Time because it looks like Earl really took an Elfie. Nadine is so clever. The cut file has all those tiny cut outs, so the glitter background was fun and easier than backing them all. I love me some sparkles ❤️😘
