Christmas Photo Album - Kristy S

Hello again, Kristy here

This week I have made a Christmas Album using the new Kaisercraft Christmas Carol collection, and my Bind it All.
This Album is also in the Scottie Crafts store so if you can drop in for a closer look.

I have used the All Ye Faithful paper for the background which already has these fantastic squares of paper however I wanted to change the order a bit so I cut out all the the squares and inked the edges with Vintage Photo Distress ink.  
Then I took some double sided adhesive paper and stuck the squares back in a pattern I preferred, Once  this was done I used my sewing machine to make holes and in place of thread used a gold gel pen to add "stitching"


The title was cut out on my Cricut both in gold glitter card and red card stock which I have adhered together.

The lantern here is the Tim Holtz Holiday Lampost which I have run through an embossing folder and added metallic rub on to show off the texture.

Here is a close up of the Tim Holtz Elegant Flourishes Die cut which I have painted with Rock Candy Crackle, inked with Barn Door Distress ink and added Diamond Dust for a snowy look.


Where to start on this one? Well the poinsettias are made with the Spellbinders Poinsettia Die on vellum and again I used some gold rub on to highlight the embossing, The pine cones are handmade using the Tim Holtz Tattered Pinecone Die.

The ribbon is American Craft and the reindeer is a charm from the Tim Holtz idea-ology collection
The leaves,bling and berries are from my stash, Whew

The photo pages are black cardstock, and I have used my Martha Stewart Punch Around the Page corner punch to achieve this look.

Last but not least, the back is covered in Kaisercraft O Holy Night paper and the tag is from the 6.5x6.5 Christmas Carol paper stack.

And that's it, I hope everyone has a fantastic weekend.

Till next week.
