Hello Crafty Friends!

I have a fun Christmas winter album for you! Im using Clear Scraps Mixable Home 8x9 Album  Click Here.

I also used Clear Scraps 6" Nordic Snowflakes Stencil Click Here


Before you decorate any acrylic piece, remember to peel off the protective film off of each side. Then  I traced with my pencil around the fence shape onto a piece scrapbook paper that resembled the look of wood planks. Flip your fence piece and trace again.  Be sure to mark where the holes are. Use a paper punch and punch out holes before adhering your papers onto each side of the acrylic fence, using Beacon 3 in 1 glue. Next I took some Christmas lights and adhered them with glue along the top of fence and around the back. Used foam dots to attach the snowman to the front of the fence. Glue a small wreath on the right side of the fence. Added some fake snow along the top and bottom of my fence on borh sides. Set aside to dry.


 For the rectangle scalloped page: I trace and covered the front and back with coordinating papers. I used Crate paper "Snowflake" paper collection. On the front page I cut a snowman paper measuring 71/2 inches x 3". Then took a snowflake die and diecut onto a glitter white paper, using my diecut machine. Then I attached the snowflake border piece  to the top of my paper and adhered on 3 sides to form a pocket. Added a few ephemera cards inside the pocket. Decorated my pocket with a few stickers to finish it off.


On the back side I made another pocket. Used to foam dots to the of the pink car and adhered to the bottom of my pocket page. Added a few ephemera cards and tag to the inside. Glued a piece of  silver tinsel along the top edge of my pocket.


Acrylic Star: I taped my Clear Scraps Nordic snowflake stencil to the top half of my star. Added some 3 D Matte gel over the stencil. Let dry. Then I rubbed some gold gliding wax over the top of my stenciled snowflakes. Flip your star over and I applied some patina paint and gold metallic behind the stenciled area, using a pouncing motion. Let dry.

Next I traced half of the star shape onto patterned paper, cut out and glued to the back of my acrylic star. Distressed around the edges. Then added gold glitter around the edge of my star. To finish I glued some chipboard letters to towards the bottom of my star.


Heart chipboard shape: I decorated both sides with coordinating papers and cut them out. Then adhered them to both sides with glue. Distress edges. For the front heart I made another pocket with a ephermera frame, made a tag  to stuff inside the pocket, added a tree paper clip and ephermera ticket, and pop dot to the Brrr sticker.


For the other side of my heart, I added a photo, pop dot a snowman and added some puffy stickers. For the snowman's arms I added acouple pine branches and applied some white paint lightly over the branches.


Acrylic House: for the last acrylic shape,  I traced and cut out the pieces of paper for the roof and house. I used a vellum adhesive tape to attach my papers to the back of the acrylic house. Careful to add adhesive behind the photo and sticker areas so it doesn't show through the acrylic.  I added some sentiment stickers and foam dots to my ephermera piece. For the chimney I added some Finnibair Rust paste and some fake snow on top of the chimney. On the back of the acrylic house I adhered a matching paper to the bottom part only.


To finish off your album, I attached the metal rings, tied some ribbons to the rings along with acouple ornament babbles!
