I wanted to create an album for Joel about his first Christmas Eve. Still I wanted it to be rather simple so I would actually finish it. 🙂 I don’t know how many mini’s over the years that I’ve spent years on, simply because I’m not that good at finishing them. The idea was to cover Christmas Eve from morning until evening. So here comes Joel first Christmas album, It’s Christmas Time version.
I really liked this album by Twiddleybitz with the beautiful window on the front. I’ve used a Tim Holtz die for the border and covered it with Distress Stickles Rock Candy. All ribbon and lace are from a LSS. Resin, flower and leaves by Prima. The white and later on golden pearls have all been created with a Pearl Maker pen.
I’ve covered the window ledge with snow paint and also put in an old fashioned “glass” by using a sheet of gelatin. I really love how he peeks out the window.Here’s the first spread… All chipboard inside the album are by Kaisercraft.
The little tag says “Our little sleepy santa” and he truely was. The second spread…The tag says “First Christmas present”. He got a little baby rattle in his stocking.
“The star of the evening”. He looked really cute in his outfit. I’ve used Shimmerz Texturez for the stars. I created the star mask myself, using my Gazelle.Next spread…I’ve used an edge punch by Martha Stewart for the border. The little sign says “Grandma and Grandpa”
I’ve used one of my favourite papers for this page, Merry. The sign says “Mommy and me”.
Last spread…I love the little alpha die cuts. They are so cute. Here they say “Santa’s coming”.
And after a long day… Bedtime. Flower and bling by Prima.
I hope you got inspired to create something beautiful with your latest Christmas memories.
