Card Makers Christmas Mini Album

     Physically this past week was really rough for me.  Free Smiley Courtesy of www.millan.netI missed out on getting my yearly bad cold last winter, but it sure came back with a vengeance this year.  Didn't feel like doing a whole lot, but thankfully, scrapping requires a lot of sitting time.  LOL
     I LOVE all the different kinds of card folds and designs out there.  So I got the idea to do a mini with each page based on some type of cool card design.  After all, if you look at a lot of the minis out there, we're constantly trying to make some kind of fold or pocket so we can add more photos or journaling spots into the album.  Thus was born my Card Maker's Christmas Mini Album.
     Here is the album page by page.  The picture quality isn't that great, but I can't maneuver the album in my light tent to take pics.  Here's the video link if you're interested in watching me go through the album and explain how each page was made.  You'll be able to see the insides of all the cards and all the tags in the album also.










     So even though you haven't been seeing me making and posting any cards on my blog this week.  I actually have been making them.  Hopefully I'll get back in gear soon, but meanwhile, this made me happy. Free Smiley Courtesy of www.millan.net

I'm even going to enter this into a challenge for this week at Paper Sundaes where challenge #47 is to make a gift item.  I think this qualifies.



Have a fantastic day!
