Today I wanted to share the base of my mini using the Christmas Countdown kit and the supplies I pulled to add to the kit. I won't be adding a photo a day but I will be adding all my Christmas type photos to this lovely album. Can't wait until family come to visit!!
I went ahead and punched holes in the wood cover and papers and put them in order. I left a lot of the papers out just in case I want to make some embellishments with them. Also, nothing is permanent, I'm sure once I start adding the photos I will end up moving some pages around.
For the cover I wanted to keep most of the wood showing. I took the paint I used to paint the frame embellishments I made for the kit and added some splatters to the cover. My paint was super cold and I didn't like the way it turned out at first but once I added everything else I was happy with it. I embossed some little snowflakes to the cover, added the star die-cut that came in the kit, embossed the year on a chalkboard piece and was finished!
I went through my little labels and found a ton that go great with this kit, took a paper clip from the kit and stuck it on a page.
I took the pretty glitter paper, cut a strip and added it to the vellum envelope!
I've had this adorable green envelope forever and have been wanting to use it. Perfect for this mini :)
Clipped a custom print that came in the clip to a page.
I used a doily, glued down just the edge, stuck a tag behind, an adorable deer on top and a cute clothes pin!
Carrie added some custom pocket pages to the kit, so cute, great for tags and tid bits!
Clipped on another label!
Loving the way it's turning out and can't wait to add photos and more embellishments!
