Hi everyone! Stephanie here with you today to share an extra little mini album this month! It's an accordion mini album and it fits nicely inside of this small box.
I put together a video showing you how to assemble this little album using the Mistletoe Magic and Vintage Christmas lines. It would be perfect as a Christmas gift, stocking stuffer or even a Christmas card! I hope you enjoy the video and please let me know if you have any questions!
One of the things that I really enjoy about the Christmas season is making a few home decor pieces.
The colors and old world feel of the Vintage Christmas collection work perfectly with the decor of my house.
Love the way the glitter adds just the perfect touch of holiday sparkle!
Have a wonderful weekend and a beautiful holiday season!
For these double ball ornaments, I used the new Mistletoe Magic 6x6 paper pad. The smaller prints are perfect for ornaments. I made two different sizes; the smaller one has 2” and 3” strips, and the larger ornaments have 3” and 4” strips. You can vary the sizes as you desire.
First, I laid out my papers and decided on the patterns that I would match up for each ornament. I love the tiny chevron patterns!
For the larger ornament: Cut 8 - ½” x 4” strips of each paper – you will have 16 strips total. Cut 6 – ½” x 3” strips of EACH paper – you will have 12 strips total.
Punch a small hole in each end of the papers. I like to stack them in order, varying the pattern every other one. I use a Crop-O-Dile hole punch on the smallest setting.
Cut a 5”-6” piece of floral wire, twist a loop at the end for the string or ribbon. Thread beads through the wire, then thread the top hole of the stack of 12 – 3” x ½” papers.
Thread additional beads through the wire, cut off the excess wire and twist the end in a loop to hold the beads in place. Turn the ornament upright and thread twine or ribbon through the top and hang on your tree.
Supplies: Lost and Found Record It Antique Collection—Sn@p Album and alpha & word stickers. Mistletoe Magic Collection— "Trees" paper, chipboard elements, enamel dots, and decorative brads. Vintage Christmas Collection—decorative buttons and faceted gems. The Sweetest Thing Collection— Bluebell "Smile" enamel dots. Other—embroidery floss and Prima Chalk In
I've been tossing around the idea of tackling an album to document our December this year. I haven't done this since 2009, for our son's first Christmas. I love that album and am so glad I did it, but the three years following 2009 I just made some layouts about December and Christmas and that was good enough for me. No regrets about not having an entire mini-album devoted to December. Now that we have a little one in house again and will be celebrating another first Christmas, I think it's time for another album. I'm ready and looking forward to it! So here we go, a couple days before December and I'm off to a great start (first time around I made the cover last).
I LOVE tags! Tags are little canvases that can be used to try new techniques, try new product and can be used to create little works of art! Tags are always super fun and I could spend hours creating tags of all kinds.
I used several tag sizes in my projects today. You can find entire ranges of sizes at online stores or at your local office supply store. My tags range from 8x4 inches to 5x2.5 inches and are even layered on top of each other to create a great look!
My favorite way to use tags is by experimenting with new products or by trying out new techniques. They are a relatively inexpensive way to fulfill your inner 'artistic expression'.
I keep all of my experimental tags and when I am looking for a special, one-of-a-kind embellishment, they are ready to use. The 3 tags I am sharing today all started as a blank canvas, but by adding sprays, inks, embossing powder, and paste, I transformed the ordinary into something unique and special. I finished each tag by layering patterned paper, layered stickers, and chipboard embellishments.
My first tag was created by layering 3 different sized tags on top of each other. I created the background for each tag in a similar way, by adding embossing paste, distress stains and water to a blank tag.
What a great way to add texture, dimension, and pattern.
My second tag was created by covering a blank tag with a piece of 6x6 paper and cutting it down to size. No need to pull out your digital cutting machine, just adhere patterned paper to a tag and cut around the edge!
I added embossing powder to the background of the paper to add more glitz and glamour to the tag.
The background on my third tag was created by embossing trees and a sentiment over the entire background, then spraying with mist. I removed the spray from the embossed areas to reveal the beautiful embossing below.
Next time you feel an urge to experiment with a new product or try out a new technique, try creating a tag. They are the perfect little canvas that can reveal your inner artist!
Thank you for stopping by! Have a great week!

Merry Christmas to all of you! Danni here to share some Christmas as we
celebrate the holidays with our loved ones near and far.
Supplies: Winter Wonderland:Snowmen patterned paper,chipboard stickers,decorative tape;Misc: Papertrey Ink scallop die, pom poms, machine stitching
I absolutely love this decorative tape and could use it on everything! I love how quickly you can add an accent to you card that will not be adding to the shipping costs.
When creating cards for Christmas, you
have to take into consideration the shipping costs and these tapes are
perfect for adding patterns and colors without the bulk.
Supplies: Winter Wonderland-:Christmas Trees patterned paper,Tags patterned paper,Flakes and Presents patterned paper,decorative tape;Misc:Martha Stewart heart punch, machine stitching
This is a flat/mailable card using the designer tape again and little heart punches for the embellishments. The little embellies pack a big punch while still allowing them to be mailed to your recipients.
Supplies: Winter Wonderland:Flakes patterned paper,Stripes patterned paper,6 x 6 pad,chipboard embellishments,decorative tape;Misc:Papertrey Ink snowflake die, Martha Stewart glitter and punch, pom poms, machine stitching
I love how this card pops because of the layers. We had a snowy, stormy day here and I can't get the glitter to pop in the pictures but paired with the chipboard embellishments, this card really shines. I am excited to see the reaction from my recipient as it is almost as shiny as she is.
We hope you have the most amazing Christmas celebration with your friends and loved ones! Thank you for making all of us at MME part of your day every day and celebration with your loved ones. Merry, Merry Christmas!
One of our favorite Christmas traditions is drawing family names for a gift exchange. We usually just scribble names on scraps of paper, then draw them out of a bowl.
I thought it would be fun to make a special can with personalized name tags. I know this will become a treasured Christmas keepsake that we use every year.
I used double stick tape and the heavy duty red scrapbook tape (for the seam in the back). The present sticker border was perfect for our "Gift Exchange" can. I embellished the can with chipboard stickers, enamel dots, a sticker, and twine.
For the name tags, I printed the names in red ink on the light blue "At Home" patterned paper and stitched around them. Then Iayered the patterned Christmas papers and added decorative brads and present chipboard pieces.
For the past few days we've shown you how All is Bright is just right for all of your holiday needs. Today we are going to share how All isBright is also perfect for your winter and holiday layouts and cards.

On my first card, Merry Christmas, I used the bird stamp and added all kinds of Martha Stewart Glitter and well, I may not even send this one out, that bird has stolen my heart. The image stamped crisply and oh so beautifully! I love that you can also use any/all of this line to create "winter" cards if you do not personally celebrate Christmas or are sending cards to others who do not celebrate Christmas.
Hi! Tina here today with several Home Decor projects to get your family and home ready for the Holidays.
I must admit, I am completely obsessed with the 'All Is Bright' collection. Not only for holidays projects, but for every day projects. The colors and design can easily coordinate with your current decorations.
Supplies: All is Bright:6x6 paper pad,chipboard elements,decorative brads,decorative buttons,layered stickers,stickers
My first project is this large frame. I layered paper, chipboard elements, brads, stickers and buttons in each opening. I removed the glass so the3D dimension and elements could really pop. Don't the elements look great against the white mat and frame?
My next project is another home decor frame. I layered more paper and chipboard elements and tied it all together with twine. This is crazy fast to make and is the perfect project for the busy holiday season.
Supplies: All is Bright:Linen patterned paper,Collage patterned paper,Ephemera Frames patterned paper,Merry patterned paper,chipboard elements,layered stickers,stickers,twine
For my third project I wanted another simple, yet coordinating decor item, so I wrapped decorative tape around matchboxes. Super simple, isn't it? It tied several with twine and added a button or brad. I loved this project so much, I might do this for every holiday.
Supplies: All is Bright:decorative tape,decorative buttons,decorative brads,chipboard elements,twine,stamps
My last project required a little more time. I die-cut a perpetual calendar with my Cameo and decorated it with more All Is Bright chipboard elements and stickers. It is a great way to countdown the days till The Big Day!
Supplies:All is Bright:4x6 pad,6x6 pad,chipboard elements,stickers,twine
Thank you for letting me share my All Is Bright home decor projects. Hopefully it puts you in the Christmas mood and gives you some ideas for your holiday decorating. Thanks for stopping by!
