12 Days of Christmas

With the holiday season now upon us it's time to think about making cards and for some of us, creating those mini albums to record the season's festivities.

Today we have Designer, Shellye McDaniel sharing her amazing talents with us.


Instead of a full 25-Day December Daily Album, I thought it would be fun to put a little twist on the popular trend with a 12 Days of Christmas Mini Album!

In starting I used the largest and next to the largest Jumbo Fishtail Banner Dies from to cut my cardstockand patterned papers.  I derived various numerals from my stash, as well as from the new "Love You More" Alphabet Sticker Sheet.  

To allow more room for embellishments, I decided to make the album flip-style...when doing so, just keep in mind the direction of your papers and embellishments when you get ready to tackle the even numbered pages.  

Two 1" rings were used at the top to attach the pages together.  After tying on coordinating ribbons, I added a date charm that I made from a Medium Magnet Daddy and Magni-Daddy Pendant.  

Now it's ready for small photos and journaling!
