MR DT: Mini Album | December Christmas

Hello! This week, our designers on Maya Road blog are pairing with Photoplay to share some inspirations! 


I was very excited and inspired when I received the gorgeous Mad 4 Plaid Christmas collection from Photoplay. I knew I had to get ready for the upcoming Christmas (it is just 4 months away!) 

Therefore I started with a mini album, which opens up to a Starburst effect. One of my favorite is the homemade holidays stamp set. I used it to emboss some snowflakes onto the pattern paper. Other embellishments include the merry christmas diecutFanciful Wish diecutSilver Snow Crystal Charms and Crystal Circle Buttons.


On the inside of the album, I decorated it with red Rick Rack trims, and Christmas die cuts. Here I used the merry christmas steel die.



The album can be opened up fully displaying a starburst effect. I used the gold bulldog clips to secure the ends. Just to add some flair, I have also added the Vintage Crafting Tassels - Fire Red and snowflake charm, held by the mini safety pins.


But I got carried away and made another 2 more albums! I made these slightly smaller than each other.


Each of these mini albums are binded with coptic stitch using Ken Oliver waxed hemp threads.


The albums fan open to a star shaped manner.


Now with these 3 albums I am ready to build my very own Christmas tree! I intend to place a photo each day as I start the countdown towards Christmas, I think it would be fun! 


Hope you are enjoying the inspiration so far.
