Mini albums are a great place to use up those short ribbon pieces that are too nice to part with!
I’m really interested in the construction aspect of mini albums and I love making them, but I don’t have a lot of experience. I did some book binding many years ago, so the cover construction is familiar, but there is so much to learn as far as making fun and interactive pages. I find the best learning method is to go to YouTube and watch what others are doing, try to replicate it and then use what you learn to create your own style. There are a LOT of great album makers out there, and so much to learn.
Since it’s hard to photograph a mini album so you can see the details, I created a ‘flip through’ video.

I embellished the front of my mini album a little with some round and heart shaped embellishments. RRR had a large selection of embellishments for every occasion. Check out the high quality, low cost embellishment offerings HERE.
I finished off the front cover of my mini album with my signature bi-color double-loop bow created on my Bow-it-All V3.0 Tool.

This month I created a pretty and sparkly Christmas card.
I actually purchased the Joy Nativity die last year with the intention of using it for my Christmas cards, but it was a bit too intricate and it would have taken too much time to use it to mass produce 25+ cards. It’s a lovely die to use for a few special people though. I layered shimmery silver and gold cardstock for added interest.
Hello every and Merry Christmas!! I hope you are all spending the day with family and friends and good food.
Today I’m sharing a quick ornament I made with my favorite Christmas die from Cheery Lynn Designs this year – Brad the Reindeer. It may be too late for this year, but it’s never too soon to start planning for next year, right?
This die set makes things super easy because there is a separate die for each layer and you just cut them in the colors of your choice and assemble. And look how wonderful it comes out!
Brad the Reindeer is just toooo cute! He is perfect for cards, gift tags or for a Christmas tree ornament which is what I did here. I made him double sided so he’s perfect for the tree.
Here he is on my tree. Most of my ornaments are hand-made ornaments I created through the years. I don’t have as much time for the elaborate ornaments any more, but Brad was a quick and easy addition this year.
