Merry Christmas Mini Album

Hello all! Welcome to Just For Fun Rubber Stamps blog! Today I'm sharing one of two Holidays projects I created for December using Just For Fun Rubber Stamps and Altered Pages' products. I love the products from both companies, they are such a perfect combination to create this mini album. Thank you Altered Pages for the products they sponsored to make this project!

This is the front of the mini album, to create the distressed look around the cover I used the Momento Dew Drop ink pad from Altered Pages. Mixed the ink with modeling paste and gentle apply on all edges of the mini album's cover. The star border is embossed in gold embossing powder to create the shiny look. 


Here are the pages inside the mini album:

Page 1 - Stamped ornament image from JFF on the pocket envelope from Altered Pages

Here is the nested page for the above

 Page 2 and 3 - Picture on the left page and note on Page 3. Stamped sentiment from JFF 'Tis the season' on the tag from AP. Love the collage print from AP too, great for embellishing mini album.

Here are the nested pages for the above, more rooms for pictures!

Page 4 and 5 - Picture on the left and right pages (the space for pictures is inside the nested pages shown after this image). Stamped poinsettias from JFF.

Here are the nested pages for pictures

Page 6 and 7 - Open space for pictures

Page 8 and 9 - Decoration on the left page and space for picture on the right (lift the embossed page up to see the pages inside)

Here is how it looks like when the page above is lifted. A small area for putting down notes/details.

Open the notes/details page to discover the pages for pictures.

Page 10 and 11 - More area for notes and details on the left page - a hidden pull out tag and a hidden envelope where you can pull out from the top (see picture after this image).

Here is the second area for note or picture! The right page is a folder made with corrugated paper to serve as storage for pictures! Any extra pictures that can't fit go in here.

Close-up look for the folder

Page 12 and 13 - A picture on the back of the folder - why not?! hehe

Flip the page on the right and here are more nest pages inside, more rooms pictures!

Page 14 and 15 - Left page for picture and right is for notes! Hidden pull out tag with stamped Joy Stamp from JFF!

When the tag is inserted into the envelope (from AP)

Page 16 and 17 - More space for pictures and notes!

Page 18 - 19

Page 20 - 21 - A pocket for storing pictures or any sentimental items. Opening/Closing flaps are created using magnetic tapes.

This is how it looks like when the pocket is closed.

That's it! I hope you enjoy the mini album I share with you today. :)
