12 Days of Christmas

I know that a lot of us are geared up and have
all ready began our December Daily Albums, but if you
don't quite have time for an entire album, think of a quick and easy
12 DAYS OF CHRISTMAS MINI ALBUM

I've created one for today's blog post over at 
using their newest Christmas line, Christmas Cheer


To begin, I used the largest and the next-to-the-largest
Jumbo Fishtail Banner Dies by mftstamps.com 
to cut my cardstock and patterned papers. 
Next, I centered and attached the patterned paper banner to
the cardstock banner page and began embellishing.



When preparing your album pages, be sure to keep in mind
where you will be placing the rings that will hold it together.
Also, I made mine into a flip-up style album, so it was important to
remember the design aspect (even # pages being up-side-down)
when it came to embellishing :)



 On each and every page I added some type of 'bling' with
the I-Rock tool and various I-Rocks such as gems and glitter.
With a small album like this, it's a great time to use up those bits and pieces
of ribbons, trim and patterned papers that you've kept!


 

And don't forget all of those fun punches that you may have!
Layer them with a bit of bling, a button and mini alpha stickers.



As you may notice, I alternated the numbers for each page between
wooden bingo numbers, sticker numerals and spelled out numbers!
I think this keeps things interesting and allows you to use various textures
and dimension.  I love adding the round bingo piece as part of the
Ho! Ho!



There may be days when you'd like to journal or make a note of
something important from that particular day instead of including a photo...
utilize those adorable journal stickers on select pages
throughout your mini :)



In finishing, I added two 1" rings to the top and tied on colorful,
coordinating ribbons.  The Imagi-Cut comes in so handy in cutting
the ends down to size and sealing them as well. 

Supplies:

A SN@P December Daily

**For the UNITY BLOG HOP, click --HERE--**

Oh, December Daily, how do I love thee! Isn't this just the greatest idea, ever?  (scrapbooking wise, anyway) Welcome to my contribution to the  SIMPLE STORIES  DECEMBER DAILY BLOG HOP I'm so glad that you're joining us...I can't wait to hop around myself and see how the girls have decorated their SN@P Albums December Daily style :)
**You should be arriving here from Rebecca Keppel's Blog**
I have quite a few photos to share, so I'll leave most of them in a  smaller size.  Just click on each one to enlarge.
My vision for the album was to mix 'n match  Handmade Holiday, SN@P and Year.O.Graphy I wanted bright colors mixed in with more shabby-distressed look that Simple Stories is known for.    For the cover, I took a bright Turquoise Dot SN@P paper and a strip from Year.O.Graphy and stitched them together.  The title is a compilation of  sevearl SN@P sticker elements.
