Christmas Mini Album 2012

****be warned .... photo heavy post****

I rarely scrap Christmas. I think it's because the photos are usually dark and whilst I love Christmas colours when I get them out to scrap they don't inspire me.

I had bought an old Teresa Collins collection in the sale and decided that if I used it as white + one then it could work for me.....and I am so glad that I did :0)

Here is my rather large mini and a selection of some of the pages!! Once again I have to apologise for the dodgy photos!! I have either got to start using colour or get some proper lighting ;0) !!

I used my Zutter to bind it. The front cover is acetate with a doily and a 3D star that I made and some of the chipboard that came with the colelction

more chipboard

Ali Edwards SVG file, American Crafts arrow stamp
another Ali Edwards cut file that I have attached with washi so it lifts to reveal my journalling.  Hard to see but on the other page is a white heart with a chipboard attached to it

I cut the heart out and attached it to a stick, stamp is my fave MME, opposite page is Ali Edwards stamp and Cosmo Cricket Tiny Alphas
