Card Christmas Album

So last week I shared a card that I made with 
A2 Card Die #4... Today I have a beautiful Merry Christmas Album 
that I made with this same die!

Along with the A2 Card Die #4, I've used the Ornament & Tags #1 Die Set.
All of the pretty papers, chipboard and stickers are from Pink Paislee's "Snow Village" Collection.

I used one of the gold foil die-cut ephemera pieces in the collection to cut the
tops for the ornaments and then layered the pieces onto the album front with foam adhesive.

Above, I turned one of the lacy SophieA2 Mat Dies into a journal card by
drawing a few lines onto the piece with a Zig pen.

 Some of the Snow Village embellishments layered together with some May Arts' seam binding.

For the base pages, I actually used the back piece from a paper any light-weight chipboard;
or heavy weight chipboard will work too since this is a steel-rule die.
Because this die will also score, just be sure to not 'bend' the chipboard or the 
patterned papers after you have ran them through the die-cutting machine.

For the final page, I took one of the Mason Jar Album Finishers and used it for a
journaling area.  Again, I simply drew on some lines with my Zig pen.
 I love the generous sized-album that this die created...I look forward to
trying out a couple of other designs with it in the near future...let's hope it works out
on paper like I have it pictured in my head LOL

Goodbye for now!

♥A little about me♥  I'm currently designing for Doodlebug Design and Scrapbook Adhesives and have had the honor of serving on 20+ manufacturers or retailer  design teams over the years!  When I'm not working as a school administrative assistant, you can almost  always find me crafting cuteness for my Etsy Shop: Dot & Whimsy :) Aside from paper-crafting, I also enjoy making jewelry, cross-stitch, embroidery,  home decorating, reading and watching reality TV. But enough about little 'ole me...let's get on to the give-a-way!
With Valentine's Day right around the corner, I set out to find the perfect curation  of all things "red" and "love" in my stash.  The end result is this sweet ♥LOV…

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.
