Day 4 of Christmas Blog Hop

Happy Christmas Blog Hop DAY FOUR!

After you:

1.  Become a follower
2.  Leave me a comment

Don't forget to go over to Bea's blog and see what she has to inspire you.  Hope you like my inspiration album for today.

For Day Four I thought I would make it pretty in pink.  Christmas doesn’t always have to be just red and green.  Christmas can be pink!!

This album is made with catalog envelopes.  The binding is canvas but this time I decided to sew buttons on the canvas before wrapping it around my album.

I also added eyelets to the center of the binding before wrapping

For my tag tabs I chose to adhere these pretty poinsettias; I think they look great the way they cascade and the color gives so much interest to the album.

Notice the 2 smaller tags with the bottle cap tabs.  They go into extra pockets I made on these pages.

I added a coin envelope to the page so that it creates another panel plus a pocket.

Also when adhering two envelope pages together; I folded over the envelope instead of cutting it short so that I could get another panel.  Then I glued the two 3 inch panels together and got an extra “short” page. 

I love adding lots of embellishments.  It always makes my albums real chunky, but I can't help myself.  I love embellies!

For those of you that just tuned in to Bea's and my blog hop we are giving way blog candy at the end of our 25 Days of Christmas Blog Hop.  I will be giving away an album so please leave a comment and follow me :)

I think for Day 5 I will make a couple of tags.  I was looking at Tim Holtz 12 Days of Christmas Tags and he has inspired me to make some tags.

Thank you for playing along with us and I will see you for Day 5!!
