8"x8" "12 Days of Christmas" Mini-Album

Whew! I finally finished it!! This album has been about 2 months in the planning stages (it didn't take 2 months to make, so don't let that discourage you if you're interested in the tutorial!), and I'm so excited to share this one today! This one features the new Graphic45 "Twelve Days of Christmas" paper collection and these papers are GORGEOUS!

It's an 8x8 album, 14 pages and stitched, though you can easily make this album without stitching the pages if you're not quite ready to give that a go:) There's 12 new page designs with 2 of the page designs repeating and a couple of half pages for a fun new addition that you can add to any of the 8" albums, if you like.

I used about one and a half 8x8 paper pads and about half of the 12x12 pad in this album. If you want to make this, but you don't want to purchase quite that much of the G45 papers, you can always use some papers from your stash in complimentary colors on the inside of the features. I also used the "pockets and tags" sheet, sticker sheet, chipboard tags 1 and 2 and the pennants die-cut sheet. I love the way G45 is making all of the coordinating accent pieces to the papers now! Makes it nice and easy to embellish and make little closures, etc.

This album is listed on eBay HERE ending on Sunday 11/10, if you're interested.

The PDF tutorial for this album will be finished on Friday Nov. 8th and I'll also post a link here to that listing in my Etsy shop. This is going to be a large file and I'll be working away on this all week to get it in document form, so thank you in advance for being patient with me as I get this all finished up. I have to apologize for coming in a little late with a Christmas tutorial, but it really will work up fairly quickly! I know it may not look like it will, but just trust me:)

Hope you're all enjoying a beautiful fall weekend!
