Christmas Memories- in July

It's Christmas in July - or at least we're pretending it is! Yep, some of those ambitious folks out there (and you know who you are) get ready for this holiday early!! No, I'm not one of them, but this year I have at least an idea or two to share with those who are. lol Here's a quick and fun goody you can make and give to your friends or family - Christmas photo albums! All you have to do is pick up a little 4x6 album and use a craft knife to gently create a slit towards the inside top of the covers so you can slide out the pre-printed inserts. Then make your own inserts, put them in place, and seal the flaps with glue dots. Done! Here's my sample:


Now you or your friends can share your Christmas memories and you'll know exactly what's in the album just from looking at the front cover! YAY!

Have a wonderful day!

Sets: Baroque Motifs, Everyday Flexible Phrases, Expressive Flexible Favorites, Snow Flurries
Colors: Purely Pomegranite, Wild Wasabi
Other: Scalloped edge, 1 3/8"circle, scalloped flower punches, white grosgrain, silver cord, iridescent ice EP, dimensionals, glue dots
