DECEMBER Mini Album 2016

I will be using the
my December Countdown Album this year!
Super simple to fill in as the book is hardcover and already bound for you! 
I love the vellum pages and alternating card stock pages! 
They are available at Michael's Arts and Crafts Store.

I chose to follow along with the prompts from Citrus Twist Kits and use the Christmas Daily Kits #1 and #2 for this project. Stamps are from Feed Your Craft

Prompt #1 from the CTK Facebook Fan Page: Make a shaker pocket.

I used my Fuse tool to heat seal a trimmed to size page protector. I cut it to the same size as my photo, 4x5. Filled it with interesting textures like sequin snowflakes, acrylic snowflakes, patterned paper, and wood veneer. Most supplies from CTK( Citrus Twist Kits).

The shaker pocket was adhered with strong tape, like Scor-tape, under the snowflake washi.

You can see the aqua ink I used to stamp the Feed Your Craft word "December". Love that font! 

Thanks for stopping by today and enjoy your December memories!

November Kellie Stamps Design Team Projects

The November release from Kellie Stamps is amazing guys!
So many stamp sets! 
I made two projects with mine, and this is the second one.

I used my laser printer and the Minc Machine to gold foil the tree from "Grinch Moment" digital stamp set. The "Merry" title is from the digital "Merry Joy" set. 

Ah, the gold foil! So easy to do with digital stamps! This is based on the very latest Studio Calico Sketch from the Studio Calico Blog. Using the Lollipop Guild Scrapbook Kit from Studio Calico. Inspired by the lovely Anna Maria Wolniak here .

 Love those vellum embellishments from the Lollipop Guild Kit, and just stapled them with the Tim Holtz Tiny Attacher.

to see all the great sets she released this month!!!
