Hello :-).... I hope you are all having a great week!!! Today I would like to share with you all a Christmas mini album I made. As you all know, I made my first ever mini-album on here not that long ago, and I thought it was about time to make another. I am really starting to love these, and I don't think it will be long before I have a pile of these to rival my layouts!!
  I originally planned to do a December Daily, but with Christmas so close, my Mom being unwell and my own doctors appointments and tests I just didn't have the time. 
I instead settled for this mini album which I made from scratch.


My album is 6x6. I have used white card as the base for each page, then covered both sides in patterned paper for added strength, and interest!!

Some close-ups of the cover:

I have added this gorgeous frame from Dusty Attic to my cover, which I have altered a little by cutting the french window grid out from the middle. I have then painted it with my favorite white and silver glitter paint from 13 Arts

Here you can see some of theses fantastic little Christmas bit and pieces by Heidi Swapp..... Just loving these!!! And of course I had to add some beautiful Prima flowers!!

The title is also from Heidi Swapp.... I really love her acetate words like this, I could use them on everything!!

I will of course be adding all my photos to my album after Christmas!!

Here is a look at the inside:

I originally wanted to make each individual page different, but sadly it is a look I just can't pull off very well, so I settled for double pages!!

I got the cute little felt doily free with a magazine ages ago, but couldn't think how to use them until now..... Love how it looks with the gold thread and Bo Bunny button!!

All the papers on these first two pages are from Kaisercraft.

For the next 2 pages I have used a combination of Kaisercraft and Bo-Bunny.

A little saying I cut out, layered on some twines and thread, and finished off with the cute little Dusty Attic Reindeer, silver start and some sequins.

On this side I have added a couple of Dusty Attic chipboard Stars and a vellum star from Heidi Swapp.

All the mediums, mists, paints and inks I have used are from 13 Arts.

A little Christmas banner, some cheesecloth, and my beloved metallic thread!!

Pretty much the same again on this side, though this time I have added a few word stickers from Authentique.

I went a little overboard on these to pages!!!! By the time I got up to here I was in such a creative mode, that I nearly forgot to leave space for some photos and/or journaling!!

Lots of sparkle on this page.... Mists, glitter, sequins.

I have cut some doilies from a sheet of Kaisercraft paper and layered them with some straws, cheesecloth, thread, and some Heidi Swapp Christmas Die-cuts.

My final 2 pages..... I would have liked to add more, but I love dimension and really struggle to make anything even remotely flat, and if i had tried to add more pages my album wouldn't have closed!!! I'm thinking of making a second one if I have the time!!

A couple more little Christmas well-wishes cut from a sheet of Kaisercraft paper..... Only a small one on the second last page, leaving plenty of room for a photo or journaling, while the final page (below) has a larger sentiment.

I have embellished the final two pages with some washi tape, twine, thread, stars and sequins, and also a few beautifully little snowflakes from Dusty Attic which I have covered in fine silver glitter.

I hope you have enjoyed my little Christmas album!!! I just adore this time of the year, and I cannot wait until Christmas morning to see Jet with all his presents!! 

I hope you found something in this post to inspire you, and I hope you all enjoy the rest of the week!!
