Oh I so loved working with this treasure box “Home for the Holiday”-Kit. This box includes everything you wish for to create an album – three different colored Glimmer Mists, Winterthemed Embossed Chips, Embellishments and gorgeous papers. I decided to create a Journal for December since I knew I was going to travel to a winter wedding in Vermont and on top December is itself a pretty eventful month.
Here is the cover:
As you can see I used the Glimmer Mist on the cover pages and then sanded them lightly to highlight the embossed tree. I painted the fence with blue acrylic paint from the back. I did the same with the photocorners and then used a black Journaling Pen to trace the embossed areas.
I had prepared all of the pages in advance – sprayed them with the Glimmer Screen and the other Chip tiles, cut up the papers and tags to create a background. For the days I had printed out numbers, some of those I had glued on top of the smaller chip tiles.
I also used the packaging -here the little window in the Frosty Chip Package to create a small shadowbox for this page.
Sometimes I wrote some remarks on the chipboard tiles itself.
this is the back of the banderole which was around the kit parcel – see …everything can be used.
Of course this album totally fits a January themed album too – and for whatever purpose you will use it…it creates fun while working with it and will give you joy for a long time whenever you reach out and look at your finished album!
thanks for looking!
