"We are better throughout the year for having, in spirit, become a child again at Christmastime."
~Laura Ingalls Wilder~
If you have followed my blog for any length of time, you probably know that the Christmas season is one of my favorite times of the year. And, for sure, those that read this blog know how much I LOVE creating and sharing handcrafted memory art albums. So, when you put the two together, especially with an album that I am simply tickled with, I have the gleeful spirit of a child...for sure!
And, for those of you who also love the holiday season and love learning new techniques in putting together an artsy album, I wanted to share the opportunity to have that same childlike glee and excitement.
With that being said, I'm so happy to introduce "Have Yourself A Rustic Little Christmas", a handmade album just filled with beautifully detailed pages, perfect for your photos and stories.
Starting with the cover, this album has so many fun techniques to stretch your creativity. From weaving a background to creating a teardrop styled dimensional tree, you will love the amazing layering...a perfect introduction to this fabulous album. You can custom tailor the banner for a word of your choice or the year you are featuring.
Inside, every page carries the rustic theme...rusty, metallic and woodsy embellishments, metallic paper, chippy paints, and layered, textured backgrounds just begging to be touched.
The pockets, pouches, and flaps offer lots of space to record your holiday memories and those surfaces are designed in keeping with the rustic theme and the holiday spirit. There are some fun techniques used inside the book that are sure to get those creative juices going...like a sliding waterfall mini album...and a barn door that actually slides back and forth (for real!)!!! That sliding barn door totally blissed me out...I truly felt like a kid at Christmas and I know you will love it too! And, of course, techniques like these do require some detailed instructions and I'm happy to say that you will be provided with step by step digital instructions on how to put your pages together.
Creating a tiny woodland scene totally satisfied my love of all things "trial-sized"!
And, really, what holiday book would be complete without some jingle bells...little metal ones as well as a beautifully aged and patinaed copper one?
