1st Day Of Christmas Blog Hop

WhooHoo!  December is here and it’s the first day of Veronica and Beatriz Christmas Blog Hop!!

OK, so as you know I love making altered items.  So for my first album sample I chose this cute mini album.  I like to add trinkets (or in this case a dolly) to my binding.  I think it adds to the album theme and makes the album seem more complete. I really like the cute wood doll. 

The cover has a pocket and a journaling card "10 Things I Love About Christmas" 




I wanted the colors to be subdued and traditional so I choose brick reds and browns.  Isn't this dolly so cute?  I wish I remember where I bought her so I could get more.  The album is from My Little Yellow Bicycle.


Notice how I sewed my mattes.  I really love sewing the mattes to give my album a finished look.



I used these flag stickers, double mounted on cardstock, strung them with fiber and pop dotted.


Since the title of the album was "10 things I love about Christmas" I chose to use the numbers as tabs for the pages with room for journaling.





There are 12 chipboard pages including the covers. It measures approx 6x6. Each page has a sewn double 4x4 matte with 10 journaling strips for you to title your favorite things. Also notice how the album pages have different edges.
Beatriz from http://www.beatrizguzman58.blogspot.com  and I are so excited to be participating together on this blog hop and hopefully we will inspire you.
So dont forget to follow the blog and/or leave a comment in order to be entered in the blog candy drawing.
Happy 1st day of Christmas!  Come back tomorrow.
