Christmas Project

New Whimsie Doodles images were released Tuesday. Have you checked them out? You can see them HERE. There is a Thanksgiving turkey image, snowpeople images, and a recipe card image. Cute stuff!

When I began to color the 'snowpeople' images I knew I wanted to create something other than a card. Ghosts from my previous 'addiction' (scrapbooking) began to float around my craft table whispering, "mini album...mini album". In my scrapbooking days I made many small albums, so the scrapbooking mode kicked in, and this is what I created.


 I also put in pages with journaling boxes/photo mats so the owner could add photos or write down memories. 
Recipe:
Whimsie Doodles images
Papertrey Ink white cardstock
Copic markers
Star album from Michael's
SU ink for distressing
Cosmo Cricket paper
Daisy Dee paper
Graphic 45 paper
Bazzill cardstock, decorative strip
Jo-lee's
Ranger Stickles, Glossy Accents
Quickutz dies
rhinestones, clip, snowflakes, jingle bells, rub-ons, buttons, glitter
SU ribbon
Making Memories charm
Martha Stewart punch

This was fun to create, especially since it had been a while since I made a mini album. If you are primarily a card maker, don't be intimidated by making a mini album. Just think of it as several cards put together between book covers. Give it a try! LC
