A few details...

I used Making Memories trim with the words Merry Christmas to close my album. The way I did it was by adding an eyelet on the front and back covers. I threaded the ribbon through the eyelet and adhered it on the inside with hot glue. I haven't set an eyelet in...like...forever so I first had to practice it again.

The cover outside was first spray painted silver (Inspired by Ali's first attempt)
Then I added my embellishments and drizzled envirotex lite in circles on it. It really drizzles great! I didn't mix it correctly because the bottles were almost empty (one bottle had a bit more in it than the other one) so when it dried it was still tacky. (then i added a little silver glitter) I bought new bottles and mixed up some more and drizzled it again. Now everything is completely dried.


I printed a die cut on a piece of card stock, cut it out and used it for a template for some of the date strips. And yes, the red ribbon was exactly meant to resemble a gift. : )

I printed the overlays (By Ali Edwards) on Bazzill cardstock "french Valnilla" I edited the numbers out and stamped those in using Making Memories Clear stamps
Do you see the Lace paper on the inside cover? It's by KI Memories. I adhered it with modge podge and added a generous layer to protect it.

Every year I paint watercolors for Christmas. These are the ones I painted for 2011. You can buy them here. 


So happy to see everyone's albums. Christmas count down starts in 10 days!!!






love and a kiss
