Country Christmas

I have a new mini album to share that I made with 
Take a look at all of the exclusive Top Dog Dies, as well as other dies that they carry at

The sweet collection is one that We R Memory Keepers put out last season...I love it!
If you like a country-Christmas feel then you will love the Yuletide Collection.

I cut all of the jar shapes from a medium-weight chipboard and then different patterned
papers.  For the cover, I used the banner portion of the Finishers Die Set, along with the
large doily from the Cherish Doilies & Tags Set.

The inner pages were  mix of patterned papers cut into mat-sizes, as well as different
die-cuts, journal cards and stickers from the collection.  

The Mason Jar Album Die measures 4 5/8" x 7" and is steel rule.  
Top Dog Dies steel-rule dies are compatible with most table-top die-cutting machines including
 the Sizzix Big Shot, Tim Holtz Vagabond Die-Cut Machine by Sizzix, Provo Craft Cuttlebug
 and Craftwell eBosser. View Machine Compatibility Information.

I hope you have a great weekend!

  3. What a fun little album. Each page is just adorable!

  4. Your jar mini album turned out adorable! Love all the sweet details you've added! :)

Do you remember a few years back when the altered lunch tins were all the rage?  Well, I've had a couple in my keeps and ran across them the other day.  I thought one dressed up in Authentique Paper would be perfect for Christmas, so I chose the Festive Collection and coordinating stamps from Unity, Naughty or Nice (which is now on SALE!)
 In times past I have covered the top of the tin (when I actually had a pattern), but I  went with tons of colorful ribbons and stamped tags on the handle instead.
 After measuring the height of the body, I cut two strips of "Joyful" paper into 5x12".
Next, I cut two strips of "Glistening" paper int…
