Welcome to my weekly Embellish-it Online Scrapbooking design team post.
I am working very hard this year to make it a homemade Christmas. Everyone on my list is going to get something for Christmas that I have made. It might be the packaging, it might be a mini scrapbook album full of memories, or a home decor item. I would encourage all of you to join in. These kinds of gifts are so appreciated by the receiver. They know that you cared enough to take the time and effort to make something yourself instead of just picking something off the shelf. Here are some ideas that you might try.
This cute little gift box was cut with an Accucut Die and then decorated with one of my favorite Christmas lines, Polar Expressions, by Imaginisce. That cute little coffee mug filled with hot chocolate is a 3d dimensional sticker. I am going to fill a bag with hot chocolate mix and put it inside. I decorated the bottom and top with a scalloped edge and Stickles for a little sparkle.
Isn't this paper just the cutest? I just love all of the little images.
Mini Scrapbook Album
A special person in my family will be receiving this gift this year. This particular person does not enjoy going on the computer so I never have to worry about spoiling a surprise. :) I love making mini albums. I love how fun and creative you can be making them. Today I will share a picture of the cover. Stop by next Wednesday for a look at the whole album. Again I used Polar Expressions and another set of dies from Accucut.
This is a mix it up mini album and the pages are all different shapes on the end. I used my Bind-it-All to put it together and another cute little 3D sticker from the Polar Expressions line. The title was created with American Craft's fabric Thickers.
All the supplies that I used can be found at Embellish-it Online. If you haven't stopped by this wonderful online store you really should. They carry some of my favorite scrapbook products and Barb, the owner, is a dear. Let me tell you about the specials that you can look forward to this week.
It's Eva's week to pick the special. From November 15th through the 22th you will receive 10% off all Cuttlebug products!! I absolutely love my embossing folders and have used one very similar to this one in my mini album.
I hope you will stop by next Wednesday to see the rest of my mini album.
