Cherish - Christmas Mini Album- Creative Scrapbooker

Dec 10, 2019

Good Morning friends and welcome to my blog today. 

I have some inspiration to share with you designed for Creative Scrapbooker! 

With Christmas around the corner, I know you might be looking for some crafty gift ideas for that special someone.  I have a Christmas Box and Mini album to share with you.

This is a mini album/Christmas box using the 6x6 paper collection called Cotton Winter from Scrapboys

This is a brand new company just recently launched out of Poland and
 I am proud to be on their Design Team

So Scrapboys has a gorgeous winter collection that i thought woudl be perfect to use for this little box i found in my stash, i think its an older Melissa Frances design.

The box is 6x6 with a 5x5 accordion album inside. 

there is alot of fussy cutting on the cover of the box which was taken from some of the 
element sheets in the 12 x 12 collection; . Lets get started!

For my first step, i used Hero Arts White Pigment ink and went around the edges of the box and the mini album. And i set aside to dry. While it was drying i cut out the elements i wanted to use on the cover and inside the album i used the photo frames. 

I used the reindeer; some of the poinsettias from this sheet, but i also cut more from this paper

 and below, the large pink frame, i used all the square frames for photo mats on the inside of the mini album

I thought it would be great to blend in some flowers and chipboard from
49 and Market 

I love dimension and used foam tape to add extra layers on the box cover after fussy cutting out the elements i wanted to use.  I added some snow paste from Decor Art   

and Art Stones from Prima  

For the inside of the album, i used a 6x6 Cotton Winter Paper pad and cut out 8 papers. 

This collection is double sided which makes it perfect for projects like this. I used ther rest of the chipboard and flowers form the packages through out the album
but mostly on the front of this little beauty. And i added more snow paste here on the flowers and leaves, it just tones them down a bit and adds a bit of texture.

Where i didn't use a frame i just cut white cardstock to use as a photo mat. 

I then cut them to fit the album pages approximately 4.75 x 4.75.  I used the photo mats that i cut form the frame paper and used those throughout the album.

I cut papers to cover the inside of the box.  

Have fun with the fussy cut elements you can certainly add much more to the album pages and make it all your own. its pretty easy to do and i had this done in a few hours. 

That completes my project for you for today. 
Thank you for dropping by and hope to see you soon.
