Christmas Mini-Album

My Grandma and I toured the Lauritzen Garden Poinsettia Show and Conservatory Thanksgiving weekend. I took several photos that day and decided to make her a mini-album for Christmas.

I used Close To My Heart's Artbooking Cricut Cartridge, Yuletide Carol papers, Pear and a Partridge Picture My Life cards, current and retired embellishments, found items, and a smidgen of contraband to put together the book. I'm trying to use up my stash so I can order new goodies from Close To My Heart! The base cardstock colors are black, champagne, colonial white, new england ivy, and ruby.

The base of the mini-album is a re-purposed 3-ring binder. I used primarily the 11x8.5 Elegance Mini-Album from the Artbooking cartridge to cut the base and overlay pages. This was a lot of fun to make and it's filled with love for my Grandma! The best gift to give is time spent together, and the next best is a scrapbook to cherish those special memories.

Don't forget, the reason for the season is Jesus, the greatest Gift of all!
Have a very Merry Christmas!
