Christmas-ready

Well, at least my small Christmas album is done, so now I just have to wait for the first Sunday of Advent. It´s just 6 weeks come this week end. Yay!

My album is a 6x6 American Crafts album, my favorite album and here´s how I´ve transformed it.



I painted all the edges both on the outside and the inside, like this....


...and then I glued patterned paper on the inside like this.


This is the front. The paper is a swedish brand with different words and phrases that´s Christmas related. The back has the same paper.



This paper is a cut from a 12x12 paper from Bo Bunny.


The white heart is metal and I bought it last Christmas in a decorating shop. "God Jul" means Merry Christmas.The green ribbon goes  around to the back too. The little closter is better seen in this picture.


The big button is an old one I found in a thrift store once, the metal one I bought new. Both of the buttons and the cute little charm is threaded with linen yarn.

I very much like my little album and it will be a joy to fill it. I won´t do an everyday effort this year though, just on those days that I want to and feel I have something to say. Maybe I end up doing most days, who knows, but I don´t want to have any pressure on me doing something for every day. And the thought with this album is that it shall last for several Christmases, the years I intend to do an everday-thing I will do a seperat album, it´s fun doing that every once in a while.
