3 Christmases mini album and some cards

Today I am sharing my last post for The Quilted Fish featuring Bazzill papers and products.

I don't know about you, but I am already starting to get into the holiday spirit!!  I never got around to doing much with last year's Christmas photos, so I decided to use the Holiday Style papers to make a little mini album!

This album is a mixed album which includes pages that are chipboard, cardboard, canvas, and acrylic.  I took the pages apart and added some 4x6 cards from the Lickity Slips papers and punched them with my Bind It All to slip in between some of the pages.

I plan to do my journaling on the front and cak covers and on some of the 4x6 cards.

On this cardboard page, I tore away some of the top layers of the cardboard to expose the corrugated lines and painted them red.

Back of the cardboard page, and front of the felt tag.  I machine stitched around the large felt tag and created a pocket with patterned paper and ribbons.  The pockets hold a lot of the larger photos that I didn't put onto the pages.

Back of the felt piece and another 4x6 card.

Chipboard page with a banner that I cut from patterned paper and the facing page is actually acrylic, but it is a bit hard to see from this view

Banner detail.

 Acrylic detail. I stamped the acrylic with Stazon ink with some Christmas trees and stars.  Then I painted the backsides so that you could still see the ink patterns.  I splattered some blue paint as well.

back of 4x6 card and front of canvas.  I misted the front size of the canvas with green mist and a mask and stitched around the outside with black thread.

On the back of the canvas, I misted some red stars and handstiched around them with green thread.

Details on the misting and stitching.

This is the back cover where I will finish my journaling!  :)

I just love this album and wish you could see it in real life!

And lastly, since I had a few scraps left over, I did a few quick cards!

I want to sincerely thank Amanda for having me as a guest designer and perhaps you will see more from me in the future!!!!  THANKS!!!
