*****WARNING LABEL: this post contains a lot of photos, but if you continue to scroll and check out this project you will not be sorry!! LOL

For my first project I made a mini album out of two different styles  of cards using 4 cards total.  The cards that I used are from Jinger Adams card kit.  I also used several different companies pattern papers and embellishments throughout this book.  However I did use 3 Girl Jam Crinkle ribbon which I love and you will too click HERE to order.

 * This is the front cover, I love how the little flap on the front opens and closes and shows the countdown to Christmas inside.  I used stickles on the holly berries and some fun twine along with the 3 Girl Jam ribbon.

*close up of the holly berries and stickles*
* This is pages 1 and 2 of the mini album…. Isn’t the fun vintage Santa cute?? I just can’t wait to put my Christmas pictures in this album!  I used some fun crystal jewels and the centers of the circles (cut from the centers of the next two pages) on the side with a fun ornament sticker.
* Here are pages 3 and 4.  This is a window card and I used the center of the circle on the right and left sides as another embellishment or paper layer.  Super cute sentiments also are used.
*This is another window card pages 5 and 6.  I used two white tags and some fun sticker embellishments on these pages.
* Pages 7 and 8 of the mini album.  I again used another one of the half circles cut from the previous pages along with some super fun tags and chipboard sentiments.
* This is the back of the mini album.  Many different pieces of Pattern Paper was used in this album.  Can you count and see just how many there were? 
*This is a top view of how the mini album looks*
*This is a picture of the full album from the side view*
I love how 3-D it is so super fun.
