Christmas in July Mini Album

Merry Christmas in July, Flockinistas! I decided  to create a mini album using the Christmas in July Kit — Traditional. I so love this kit!!! It comes packed with all kinds of goodies to create with, as this album demonstrates. I always say I'm going to make cards, but time flies and before I know it, it's Christmas and I haven't made the cards !  So, this year, I am going to start  making a few now so I don't have to do it later. I started with this mini album using the tab file envelope and I also used the poinsettia file from Silhouette site. If you want to buy a poinsettia die, just drop Suzanne a line and she'll do her best to order it for you !

Here is the cover that I created on this mini I did the hinge binding system with 1/2 inch gullets to be able to make this mini very chunky.
                                   Up close picture of the typewriter with the Santa's list.
    Here is a closer look of how I did my poinsettias with the snow texture and a little bit of glitter.
   I used some rosette papers that I had cut out, and used it for lace. Fast and easy way to achieve a    lace without lace look. TH makes a GREAT Rosetta die so be sure to ask Suzanne about it !
                  I used textured snow on the Christmas Tree sticker to bring out dimension on it.
Here is how the file folder that I tucked behind the tree with a bow to look like a present.

Here is how I did the outside of my binding. I had this ribbon left from last Christmas and thought I would use it for a final touch.

                                     Here's a peek of how the tags come out of the inserts

Now, wasn't that easy ? Everything you need to create your own holiday minis, cards, or ornaments, with one GREAT kit With this box of goodies, you can let your imagination run wild .  Remember you can also "alter" the stickers to make your own personal creation. I  used other embellishments from the store for a bit more flair as well.
