A Christmas Treasure

Last year I made a 25 days of December mini album, which I was thrilled with. But with all the business of the season, taking a picture everyday for this album was a lot of pressure to me. This year I have made a little album that I can fill with my favorite holiday pictures and not worry about documenting everyday of the Christmas season. The base of this album is made with 7 Gypsies naked paper bags and creme card stock. I used lots of 7 Gypsies products as well as some vintage appliques that were given to me by my Mother in Law, when she cleaned out her quilting stash. I love these little appliques and I have been saving them for just the right project and here it is.

I used a Starbucks cup cover as a banner.
The pages made out of 7 Gypsies naked paper bags will hold tags for journaling and additional pictures. I gave the edges of my pages a distressed look by using adhesive and applying 7 Gypsies rubbings in silver and gold. I also added some beads to add dimension.

I loved making this little treasure to hold our holiday memories for 2009.
