Day 2 of 25 Days of Christmas Blog Hop

Happy Happy Blog Hop Day Two!! Thank you for participating in our blog hop and for your wonderful comments. Beatriz and I are so very happy with the way the blog is going and its only day two!! So dont forget to go over to Amazing Grace after you leave me a comment or become a follower :)

Well, I just finished this little album. Its been rolling around in my head for a couple of weeks and I am very happy to have finished it. I got inspired by the paper of course, and I tried to keep the same country primitive feel throughout the album.

The pages are made from envelopes so that gave me extra room for large tags, which of course I also decorated.



The cover has a cute tin ornament. I started adding layers to the cover because I am all about the Layers!!










All my double mattes are sewn and I try to put an embellishment on every matt. I like details so I think it adds a little extra when you do that. There are more pages but I just wanted to give you a taste for the album.


I love it when the album has lots to look at; which is why when I create tags I tend to put tabs on them that have interest.  These tab-snowflakes on the tags not only makes it easy to grab and pull out but I think they add to the whole album. 


For a little extra I went back through the album and stickled the snowflakes, and some of the holly.

Hope you enjoyed day two of Beatriz and Veronica's Christmas Blog Hop, please remember to:

I am off to make another mini :)  I will try and start one tonight so that I can hopefully finish the new album by tomorrow.  Im pretty fast at albums, but still it takes at least 10 hours to make a full mini.  The more embellies I add and the more detail the longer it takes.  So wish me luck that I get full on mojo :)

Happy Happy Scrappy and visit us for Day Three!!
