Christmas Countdown Mini Album
November 29, 2018
Hello! It's Jennifer on the blog today! It's hard to believe December is almost here! Every year I like to do a Christmas countdown or "December Daily" album. I used the tabbed album from the Acrylic Recipe Stand 4x6 Kit. There are 10 pages in this album: 5 acrylic and 5 chipboard! I actually turned the album vertical for something different! Each page measures approximately 4x6 inches which is perfect for most photos!
I covered each page with patterned papers followed by a piece of cardstock to mat future photos. I then layered embellishments on and around the photo area.
I used a cut file with white cardstock to create my countdown numbers. On the acrylic pages, I placed my numbers on the circle tab backing it with a contrasting patterned paper (this is where my circle hand punch came in handy!). For the chipboard pages, I tried to stay with the circle them by using a coordinating embellishment or again utilizing my circle hand punch.
I did insert extra pages so I would have enough for my numbers. Here, I used a kraft envelope that I embellished on both sides.
I also like to use glassine bags as extra pages as well! They are inexpensive but have a classy look!
I had an idea to try to still use my acrylic stand by turning it on its side but it did not quite work out. However, I can still use the stand for a future project! Hope this inspires you to do a Christmas album of your own using Clear Scraps! Have a great day!
