Christmas Mini Album by Kristin Greenwood

Kristin Greenwood is walking us through the pages of her mini album created with our December Album Kit!


I had so much fun creating the mini album this month!!  I want to share with you some tips on some of the techniques I used!

For the cover I layered some of the embellishments!  Did you know that if you use your heat setting tool on the pearl flourish, it will stick better?  

I wanted to be able to add some extra photos on this page, so I did a waterfall technique!

Snow globes are one of my favorite Christmas decorations, this one was a little I added some glossy accents and glitter!

Layers of embellishments and a Santa I fussy cut from the pattern paper!

A black outline makes everything pop of the busy pattern paper!

Don't forget the pop dots! 

Ribbons are a great addition to any page! I used this one on the photo mat, it is going to hide something in the background of my photo!

I love the black in this kit!  I used my black copic marker to color the Pink Paislee elements!


Its ok to layer your photo mats over your embellishments! 

I used a simple (nice word for plain!) embellishment sticker as a base for my busy cluster!

After I thought I was finished with this page, it just didn't look complete!  So I added some banners!

I only wanted to use the SANTA word on the black sticker, so I layered it behind my cluster!

I wanted the last page of the album to mimic the front cover!


You can see more of Kristin's beautiful work in our Design Team Gallery!
