Candlelight Christmas Mini Album

  Last weekend was amazing, and as a follow-up to all the pictures of my peeps, I want to share the project we worked on (and mostly finished). It was a huge undertaking to make an entire mini album in a day and half, but we accomplished a lot and had a lot of fun doing it! Directions for the mini album are available to anyone who would like them. (I tried to be specific, but cutting and scoring directions aren't always the easiest to write without photos.) Just shoot an email to, and I'll send them out to you.

  Almost the whole album was made with Stampin' Up products and stamps. (There were a few Tim Holtz goodies thrown in for good measure.) This Candlelight Christmas Designer Series Paper is just so incredibly gorgeous, and it provided the perfect backdrop for this album!

The album cover featuring SU's tulle ribbon. So yummy.

Page one holds a 4x6 photo wallet ...

Ornament Keepsake stamp set. Need I say more?

This tag pocket holds lots of goodies!

A mixture of some of my favorite Stampin' Up sets: Christmas Lodge, Christmas Deer, Christmas Collage, Open Sleigh, Winter Post, and Lovely as a Tree.

Don't you just want to move into this house RIGHT NOW?

The flocked window sheets in this paper collection are just so gorgeous!

This page features a fun mini paper bag book that clips right to the page.

Coffee sleeve flip book ...

Toilet paper rolls find a new calling as tag holders. I'm not totally finished with these, I don't think. They just need something!

This is my favorite page in the book! This is the perfect place to store those adorable letters to Santa, and the envelope can turn into an heirloom if the kids address it themselves!

The post card inside the envelope has a photo mat on the back side. I'm still giddy about it.

This page has a horizontal flip book that folds out to hold 4- 4x6 photos.

I had a BLAST making and teaching this album, and like I said before, I wish I could share all the fun variations the ladies created to personalize it. I hope a few of them will share pics online so I can link them. Thanks again for an amazing weekend!
