Christmas 2013 - Countdown to Christmas

Hi everyone! It's time for the monthly Creative Challenge from My Favorite Things and this month we're counting down to Christmas with Christmas themed projects. Head on over to the MFT Blog for a link to each participating designer.

I don't have a "traditional" countdown project, rather I am counting down to Christmas by checking things off my list, namely having a mini album done ahead of time so I can add my favorite pictures for memory making. I had SO MUCH FUN creating this album. I tried doing a December Daily album last year, but never completed it. This mini album was right up my alley.

I used many MFT products on this mini album and you'll find them all linked at the bottom of this post.

This post is very picture heavy, so sit back, relax, and I'll get on with it :)

Here's the album:


The first set of pages. I will be adding small instagram pictures to some of the pages. The page on the left will have a picture of our decorated Christmas tree.


Just a fun filler page. Love the Winter Wreath Die-namics. So fun.


This is the second st of pages. The page on the right will have a another picture.


I'll put a small picture on this next page, most likely of my girls. :)

Another spot for a picture:


And here are the last two pages with another spot for a picture on the right hand page.


Here's a close up of the last page.


And that's it! I hope I've inspired you to make your own mini album.

Below you will find links to every product I used on my card:




Thanks for stopping by!
