Hi everyone! Merry Christmas!!!
Kerstin here, and today I’m sharing a mini album with the gorgeous November 2020 Hip Kits !
I used things from all the kits that are so wonderfully christmassy.
I wanted to keep my cover simple, so I used the exclusive black and white striped paper cut to 9 x 12 inches and covered it with book foil. To get a spine I folded the paper at 5.5 inches on both sides of the paper after covering it with book foil. With my sewing machine I sewed all around.
To give the album a special eye-catcher, I attached sequins from the Main kit – the colors are gorgeous – to the spine with some other embellishment I still had at home.
Now I’ll show you a few inside pages that I plan to fill with photos and journaling after the holidays. I’m sure I’m the same as you, there wasn’t enough time before…
I cut white cardstock to 11.5 x 4 inches and folded at 5.5 inches and 6 inches. To accommodate my photos or journaling as well, most of the pages fold out to the top. Here I cut white cardstock 5 1/4 x 4 1/4 inches and folded at 4 inches then I put thin double sided tape on it and then adhered to the pages. Then I started cutting the great exclusive papers to 5 1/4 x 4 inch to fit of the white cardstock.
*1* Ilove embroidering on paper and the back of the pom pom paper was perfect for this. A puffy sticker and the numbers from the Pocket Life Kit – done!
*2* Here I used a card from the PL Kit, a “stamp” of the Chipboard Stickers. I loved the words from the PL Kit so much that I used them on a tag made from Vellum.
I couldn’t decide what to use for what with all the great kits…. I just went for it with Christmas carols and a cup of tea!
I’m going to show you a few pages that were created in a cozy Christmas mood. I’m already looking forward to filling tomorrow or the day after tomorrow.
To attach the pages of my album to the cover I sewed them on with my sewing machine in the middle ( in the folded part ).
It will certainly not have been the last album that I made in this form! I am very much in love with this style of mini album.
I had great fun working with the great products.
I hope you like this little project!
