Christmas Mini Album Cover


Here is what I ended
up doing with the cover. Thank you for all the wonderful suggestions. I thought the acetate would be great, but was unable to find the right way to pull that off.


 So in the end,
I went to my go to flowers. I cut some leaves with Alterations Mini Holly die and added I Am Roses red/white blossoms and red roses in two styles.


Memories is written
in Idea-ology Ransom Alpha Parts. I didn't think it covered up too much of the fabric.


I tied an Idea-ology
bauble into the twine binding. Believe me, that twine certainly had shortened up from where it started out. I really meant to keep this album thinner than most of mine, but failed miserably. As you can see... quite the chunk!!!


I love this Prima
packaging sticking up at the top... lots of fun elements in this book. 
Happy place!!!


I bought the Idea-ology
Worn Cover at Hobby Lobby last week, so I'll be starting an album with it next... or so I think. I do have three cards to make yet today in between weeding the shade garden and planting lettuce. Busy spring days... but isn't it great to get out in the sunshine! What all do you have going this week?

I'm linking up at:

Thanks for stopping by!

Oh, I absolutely love how this turned out! Beautifully done, Linda! Love the mixed font look of the title letters, and it looks great up at the top there. Don't think it covers too much of the fabric, either. The bauble tied on the spine is super cute. Love the flowers and holly leaves, too. Looks amazing!
