I worked on two mini albums for Christmas gifts this year. Here's the first one. I gave it to my mom and she LOVED it. I used a variety of embellishments, most bought last year on clearance and I did buy more this fall to finish them up. I used a tutorial from My SIsters Scrapper for the page layout. I used the exact paper Ginger uses, Recollections 65 lb white 12 x 12. And here is Ginger's cover and spine binding that I used to guide me through the rest of the albums.
I've only made a few albums, these are #4 and #5 to be exact. They feel like a massive card project to me. This album was five pages, so it was the equivalent of about 14 cards in total. I did not purchase enough embellishments and had to wait for a good holiday sale to make one last purchase of goodies so my two albums looked "complete" to my estimation.
The next winter album I am going to post is six pages, so about 16 cards worth of embellishments.
I am entering both albums in the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge - Make It Sparkle
