Welcome to the December Stampers with an Attitude Happy Holidays Blog Hop. The Stampers with an Attitude are all part of Kimberly Moss's team. If you arrived here from Catherine Nowak's blog, then you are in the right spot! Don't you just love her work?
This month I chose to make a one-sheet wonder mini-album. I want to send mini-albums to parents and grandparents to share our Christmas with them. I will probably make one or two for me as well. In January, I will be offering a workshop where we can remember our Christmas and look forward to 2015.
For this project I chose to use the Yuletide Carol Collection and gold and red Shimmer Trim. I deliberately chose to not use inks and stamps on this particular album because I wanted to show how one could make a lovely mini-album with the purchase of one paper pack and perhaps embellishments and trim.
Part of the fun of making the album is cutting the paper. I love how the paper in the Yuletide Carol collection has such interesting elements. Notice how I chose to cut the paper so the yellow rose was featured. I did the same with several of the prints, choosing to highlight sections which were of interest to me.

I modified the directions I found on Pinterest. I used the tutorial from Sis Patterson @ Paper, Craft, and Scissors.
Now head on over to Di Crawford's blog to see what she has in store for the holidays.
