Holiday Wishes

Ack! Christmas is only 10 days away. Time has been flying for me since we added 6 extra people to our household this season. This is a paper bag album that I started last year, and just barely finished! Please someone stop me from buying Christmas paper next year. I have way too much left over from these last two years.

Fun little details: distressed tag with Christmas rub-ons, glittery poinsettias, stamped tag, a little twine and a bit of ribbon.

More chocolate Stampin-Up ribbon. Yum!

I hope you all have finished more on your  Christmas to-do lists than I have! Merry Christmas and happy scrapping. Dee2

Holiday Memories Family Scrapbook Album

This is another recent holiday creation. I had so much fun transforming this lunchbox tin with soft snowflake blue and rich peppermint red. 

There are hidden tags and charms throughout the ribbon on top, and how cute is the giant jingle bell? :)

Not sure if you can see, but I accented the snowflakes with Stickles and Martha Stewart glitter.

The first page/tab: a 3x5" photo can be slipped behind the title pocket.  I really love how these colors look together. :)  I wasn't sure if I was going to sew fro this project, but the white thread gave all the pages a nice finished look.

The backside of the first page. I did some layering and stamping with a Jenni Bowlin image.

I added lots of shading, ribbon, and journaling tags to the pages, but trued to keep things from getting too bulky or dark. I like inky, but not to the point of looking grungy.

A page with some journaling tags stuffed in, and layered with some Prima flowers.

This is on eBay if you're interested in seeing all of the pages and details. Thanks for stopping by, and happy crafting! :) Dee2

Sweet Baby Boy

This is a baby boy album I put together for a friend a few weeks ago.

 I used Little Yellow Bicycle Papers mixed with cardstock in orange, blue, and green. It turned out so sweet. :) I tied some tags on the binder rings with the baby's name, and a note welcoming him into the world on one of the other tags.

Sorry the lighting is poor as I took the pics at night.

Just thought I'd share a little of what I've been up to while I've been MIA. :) Happy Scrapping. Dee2
