Tag Mini Album

Spring is FINALLY here.  Yesterday I hung the laundry out to dry for the first time this year, and there are already a few flowers blooming in my yard.  I guess wintertime has not yet faded from my mind, though.  Yesterday I finished a Christmas mini album!

General supplies for album: tag paper by Bo Bunny; mini alphabet stickers by Lily Bee; white paint by Ranger; scrap of red ribbon; office hole punch.

This is a tag album, in the same style as one I did last year.

I used tags of all different shapes and sizes.  The title tag is long and thin, allowing the other tags to peek out behind it.

Additional supplies for this page: label by October Afternoon.

The album documents a bunch of little things (food, decorations, etc.) that make Christmas a special time of year.

Additional supplies for this page: star & stocking stickers by Karen Foster Design; label by October Afternoon.

I can't save every Christmas card I receive, but at least I have this photo of my full card holder

Additional supplies for this page: all stickers by Crate Paper; rub-ons by October Afternoon.

Every year we put up our big Christmas tree, but we also put up two little table-top trees.

Additional supplies for this page: labels by Cosmo Cricket.

Notice that I put the dessert page before the dinner page.  Yes, I have an incurable sweet tooth.

I love label stickers, so I was happy that I got to use a lot in this album.

I love the crocheted rainbow yarn garland that my friend Angie made for one of our mini trees.

I also love this star garland from my friend Sima.

And I also love these little paper angels from my friend Nanda.  She sends me a new one every year.

My sweet little nieces gave me this puffy snowman sticker to wear on my shirt on Christmas.  :)

This album is special to me because of all the happy memories that it holds.  But it's also special for another reason.  Remember when I was lamenting that my LSS, Scrapbooks Too, was closing?  Owner Sue Turchick was preparing for a new job with CHA, so she sold off all her stock, and even her fixtures, and prepared to close the store.  But then, at the eleventh hour, a buyer came forward, and the store lives on!  The Bo Bunny tag paper that I used to make this album is the first paper that I bought at the all-new Scrapbooks Too.  Don't you just love a happy ending?  :)

Well, now that I've finished showing you my Christmas album, I'll get back to the present and end this post by saying that I hope everyone has a happy May Day tomorrow!  :)
