and it's also a great way to use up pieces/parts of your fave scrap goodies that you may be hoarding. very little in my book is actually 'Christmas' themed...just bits i pulled out of my stash.
here we go...
painted the back of really sturdy chipboard that i can buy locally from a 'paper supply store' for my cover. then i grabbed some black silk ribbon and ruffled it around the edge of this older Scenic Route sticker, which kind of sums it all up. then i stitched around the edge to make sure it stayed put, lol.
the best part of this kind of album (to me anyway...being the mini book lover that i am), is mixing and matching leftover pages, etc. from other books. i often pull out a few pages from the minis that i buy, especially if they are something i really like...then i stash them aside for just a project like this one. gives the book a really fun, random look to have all kinds of surprises peeking out at every turn.
anyone else have these Heidi Swapp ghost frames laying around?! i love them...and after you just paint a bit around the edges and add a rub-on border, look how fun!!
so we'd love to see everyone's progress as the month goes along over in the gallery...please upload whenever you can!
you just never know who you may inspire.
