Happy Friday to you all! Shellye here to share with you today :) I'm changing up the focus of this week's spotlight with Spellbinders to bring a 12 Days of Christmas Tag-Style Mini Album using SN@P! and a bit of December Documented.
For the base of the album, I started with Spellbinder's Wonky Rectangles Nestabilities and used the largest (3.25" X 4.25") die. I first cut the shape from a thin weight chipboard and then various papers from the 6X6 December Documented Paper Pad.
Although using smaller dies from the same set would also look just as sweet, I decided to go with an oval shape (2.25" X 3") from the Spellbinder's Classic Ovals Nestabilities.
And I just fell in love with Spellbinder's Layered Poinsettias ...I use a lot of snowflakes for winter/Christmas themes, so this was a nice change! For the front, I used two of the smaller poinsettia shapes and then glittered the yellow centers.
Before attaching the little penguin guy to the top of the cover, I applied him to a piece of paper and then trimmed out; this added stability and also took away the sticky. To the bottom, I glued on a pom pom trim from May Arts Ribbon.
Below are all of the pages to commemorate the 12 Days of Christmas. When adding photos, I plan to use one of the smaller ovals to die-cut my photos. Between each 'day' I have added a cut-down piece of overlay from the December Documented Collection Kit, as well as SN@P! Pockets and December Documented 3x4 SNA@P! Cards.
This concept would also make a cute brag book for a new mom or grandma. Add more SN@P! pockets and fill with movie tickets or gift cards...a gift within a gift!
