Christmas in July Mini Album

Merry Christmas in July, Flockinistas! I have decided yet to do another mini album using the Christmas in July Kit — Traditional I so love this Kit!!! It comes packed with all kinds of goodness to create with and this album will show how much stuff it comes with. And I have a bunch of cardboard stickers and paper left over for cards too. That I seem to always say that I am going to create and send out every year and don't. So this year I am going to start out making a few now so I do not have to do it later. I started with this mini album using the tab file envelope and I also used the poinsettia file from Silhouette site. Remember to go to Flamingo Scraps for all your Christmas Card making needs this month with this kit that is packed full of goodies.

Here is the cover that I created on this mini I did the hinge binding system with 1/2 inch gullets to be able to make this mini very chunky.
Up close picture of the typewriter with the Santa's list.
Here is a closer look of how I did my poinsettias with the snow texture and a little bit of glitter.
And this is where I used some rosette papers that I had cut out and used it for lace. Fast and easy way to achieve a lace without lace look.
I used Textured snow on the Christmas Tree sticker to bring out dimension on it.
Here is how the file folder that I tucked behind the tree with a bow to look like a present.

Here is how I did the outside of my binding. I had this ribbon left from last Christmas and thought I would use it for a final touch.

Here is a couple of peeks how the tags come out of the inserts

With this pack of goodies you can let your imagination run wild with idea's. Just because it is a sticker you can personalize it to make it your own either. On this mini album I also used many other embellishments from the store to add just a bit to it.
