Hello everyone! It’s Eva on the blog today sharing a quick tutorial on how to create this Christmas Mini Album to record all your holiday memories
Christmas is a busy season here on the southern hemisphere, kids are finishing the school year and we have field trips, graduations, and many more events! That’s why I like to plan ahead and make a mini album to record my Christmas before the crazy season starts.
To create this Christmas Mini Album I made a 3×4 inch accordion base with white cardstock. Accordion mini albums are great because you can make them as big as you want!
Whenever I am making a mini album without the pictures I like to cut small rectangles or squares and use them to design my pages, it is so much easy this way!
The new Cozy and Bright line is filled with Christmas sayings and the die cuts are the perfect size for my 3 x 4 inch album.
I also used this patterned paper to cut 3×4 cards and used them to fill the entire page. And I didn’t forget my journaling space, during the holidays I tend to write a bit more so I left pages exclusively for journaling.
I also used the 12 x 6 sticker sheets to add small accents, you can’t see it in the pictures but the stickers have glitter on top!
Don’t be afraid to bend your die cut and use 2 pages for your design!
Another lovely embellishment is the clear stickers, these are perfect for your planner and I used them to decorate a page with patterned paper squares.
Finally, my last tip is to use the 6×6 paper pads for mini albums and cardmaking, the designs are in scale so you can see them more clearly! plus, the 6 x6 paper pad has glitter accents!
To create the cover of my mini album I used this red and white glittered paper to add some texture to my project.
I really like how quick this project was and now I am ready to print and glue pictures in the “photo” spots. Is your holiday season as busy as mine? have you ever made a Christmas mini album in advance?
thanks for joining me and have a wonderful Christmas!
