Hello friends! The Christmas countdown is on with only a week left to go! Do you have your shopping finished? I am so behind this year but its ok as it will all get done. Today, I'm sharing a Christmas themed mini using the Acrylic Deco Slimline Album! At first, I had planned to create a Christmas countdown/December Daily album but decided against it. I thought I would have an album to add photos and journaling to at a later date.
I left the front cover of the album "bare" but did add the new Scallop Rectangle Mini Shaker Shape! Not only did I fill the center with sequins, but inserted die cuts and stickers as well! You can also see the Fancy Chipboard Borders that I painted with white acrylic paint and adhered using my Beacon 3 in 1 Adhesive.
Each page measures 5.5 x 11 so I cut my background pages to 4.5 x 10.5 inches. This gave enough room for the deco tabs to not be covered by patterned paper. I then added spaces for journaling and or photos.
Here, I utilized one of the longer list cards of the collection I used to create a page about things I love about Christmas!
For my mini albums, I always love inserting something different for a page such as a pocket or flap. Here, I used paper to sew a pocket to store photos and tags for journaling.
Most of my photos I mat with white cardstock and plan them to be 4x4 or 4x5. I also usually will layer extra patterns under my photo mat as well along with embellishments.
