Hi blog readers! I hope you're having a great week! In my last post, I told you about Alycia's Winter Wonderland mini for the SOC mini album swap. So today, I wanted to stop in and share the album I made for the swap.
|Patterned paper: Simple Stories, Dies: Spellbinders, Rings: 7Gypsies|
Distress Ink: Ranger, Key and Flower: Michaels, Stamp: Hero Arts
It's a vintage Christmas album! Now first of all, it was a little challenging because this was my first mini album...It's true--I've done accordion books and even a star album, but never a standard mini. I went back and forth on the size for a long time before deciding on a 6x6. The Simple Stories 25 days of Christmas mini paper pack was a good fit, and since I didn't have to do lots of cutting, it came together pretty quickly. So here are a few more pics:

for extra space for journaling and pictures
The album was a lot of fun to make! You know that means there will be more in the future!! I learned a few things that I want to try next time, and got to use some cool products, even a few from my stash! Is there something you'd like to try but haven't done it yet? Just jump in and take on a swap or challenge!!
I'm glad I did!...Thanks for stopping by...And That's All She Wrote
