Picture My Life – Mini Album

Christmas Mini-Album by Wendy Kessler

Here is a creative way to expand the Picture My Life Scrapbooking Programs.  This adorable Christmas mini-album was designed by my upline, Tina Lovell.  It was so simple to make and would be a cute gift.  The pages are from the Pear & Partridge Picture My Life Scrapbooking Program.  The book is “bound” using Ruby Chevron Washi Tape.  Then I just embellished with whatever I had on hand.  I think red, green, and gold coordinate very well.

Use Your Stash Blog Hop – Home Décor in Your Stash

Do you have a bracket frame, display tray, or other Home Decor item you’ve wanted to create and never completed? Pull it out and use it this month just like we did for our hop!  This hop is a circle; if you have just started simply continue until you make your way back here; if you have already started, you should be coming from Priscilla Gotham.

USA Decor Star by Wendy Kessler
Supplies used are all Close to My Heart: Tommy Paper Packet (retired), Ruby Chevron Ribbon, Red Shimmer Trim, chipboard letters, and My Creations Star (in the clearance section right now!).

I really dug into my stash for this one.  I had this star for a very long time and just didn’t know what to do with it.  I had this paper I didn’t really care for and decided to decorate it for the 4th of July.  Then it sat covered with the paper until I finally figured out how to finish it.  Now I think it’s perfect!

Now hop on over to Shirley Ross!
