It's time to start thinking about Christmas!  I know you are rolling your eyes and groaning but honestly if you do a bit each month along the way you will be ready.  I am not going to offer challenges this year but try and keep to my goal of crafting Christmas continually throughout the year and sharing my ideas with you.  I would love to hear what you are doing!

I fell in love with Graphic 45's "Twelve Days of Christmas" and plan to use that throughout the year.  My first project is what I call a mini/mini.  It's more than a card but less than a typical mini album.  I have used two paper bags and bound it with my Bind It All.

The cover background is "My True Love", inside I have used "Joyeux Noel", the first day tag and an assortment of scraps from other G45 papers (one of the great things about G45 is the ability to mix a lot of the basics).  I have left the inside free of embellishment so that it can be personalized at the time of gifting.  I will tuck in a few scraps so they don't get misplaced or used elsewhere.  I have used a vintage snowflake as the element to build the cover upon.  Yes, I am going to use my vintage holiday stash this year!  I love the mini bottle brush tree.  (use E6000 glue)


  1. Your idea with Christmas all year is ql, but for me isn't feasible. It must be cold outside, that the feeling is right - we have spring temperatures right now :(. Your album is very nice and keep it going on Christmas spirit. I'll try to follow you.

    Greetings from Slovenia,

  2. Your little mini/mini is a great gift for Christmas 2014. How very smart of you to bank ahead. Creative Bliss...

  3. What a wonderful little mini! Love the bottle tree too and the snow on the chipboard letters!


I adore comments! Thank you so much!
