Spellbinders Platimun Party! Blog Hop


I’m excited to be part of the Spellbinders Platinum Party Blog Hop today!  I created this great project using Spellbinders Holiday and everyday dies, along with products from Imagine Crafts and Authentique Paper.


Since I got the Spellbinders Creative Book Pages, I have been itching to create another mini album! I was thrilled to get a chance to incorporate some of the new Christmas dies into my album, along with lots of other fun products! 

To make this, simply cut your shape from chipboard and patterned paper like shown above.

Glue your papers to the chipboard pieces (front and back.) Once glue has dried, ink the edged with coordinating inks.

Punch holes in the tops of the pieces and add large eyelets. Add binding rings through the eyelets to hold your book together. 

I created a few embellishments from my dies. I really loved the layered poinsettia die, so I cut one of those with the leaves and misted it with some Shimmer Spritz to give a nice little sparkle.

I cut the little snowflakes out of the new Vertigo from Imagine Crafts. This stuff is AWESOME! 

Add embellishments & ribbon and your album is complete! I always play with my embellishments before I glue them down. It's often hard to find the perfect spot so I try different pieces in different places. The snowflakes worked out perfectly peeking from behind some of my other embellishments. I love them!

There are several pages to this little album, I just love the layered shaped pages.

I embellished with my die cuts, some Petaloo Flowers, and die cuts from Authentique Paper's "Joyous" Paper Crafting Kit. Actually, I created this ENTIRE album with that little kit!

I always LOVE to add ribbons to my albums! May Arts Ribbons are the absolute best! Soooo many to choose from!

I've had my eye on that poinsettia die for far too long. I think I may break down and buy it for myself and let someone pay me. That's what birthdays are all about as you get older. Even better I'll forget to collect the money from that person but remember he bought it for me. Gotta love family.
