"It's the most WONDERFUL time of the year!!"

Well, Christmas is upon us and it's THE MOST WONDERFUL TIME OF THE YEAR!!  I just LOVE Christmas.  I'm always humbled by the gift that God give us in His Son, Jesus Christ! 

I had been itching to get into the Christmas spirit, so I decided what better way to get that fire going than to do a "Christmas Memories" Mini-Album.  I hope you enjoy...

 The cover is chipboard covered in cream colored canvas -
from PRIMA. It came in a pack of 3 covers (2 canvas, 2 black canvas, 2 smokey acrylic).
I inked the edges, added a piece of embossed red cardstock, put in a title,
made paper rosettes with a Tim Holtz die, added a stick pin that I received in swap,
heat embossed just about EVERYTHING gold, tied a pretty
bow on the side.. and WA-LA!
 This is the first page.  Paper on the left is before, page on the right is after the gold
heat embossing. I used an embossing ink pen and gold embossing powder. 
The title is stamped, all else is hand drawn.

 This is a tag page... again, gold heat embossed stamping and hand drawing.
 Love this page!!  It is my first ever "flip" page.  The candy flap flips up
to reveal another photo mat underneath. Very FUN!
 Another tag page. Gold heat embossing around all of the houses is hand-drawn
with the embossing pen, then gold embossing powder added, and heated with the heat gun.
2 tags added in the pocket to maximize photo placement.
Another tag page. This time a side pocket. The pocket was first embossed with a cuttlebug
embossing folder. Then I went over the raised embossed design with the heat
embossing pen and gold embossing powder.
 This is another little flip page.  It has 3 photo matts. Love the cookies along the
edge of the paper. I just went around them with my embossing pen, added
gold embossing powder and heated it. 
The last photo matt in the back of the flip page.

This is the last page in the mini-album.  It is a tag page with only 1 larger tag.
Presents are stamped and heat embossed with gold. A little touch of gold ribbon
for a pull tab helps bring it all together.
Thank you so much for visiting FASHIONED IN FAITH!  I hope to see you again real soon!!
Prayers & Blessings, Tami.
