12 days of Christmas

Woohoo! Today we have a CHRISTMAS theme at Crafts 4 Eternity. Well I don't often bow to Christmas, but I decided to make an album that I've been wanting to do ever since I got into papercrafting and that is a 12 days of Christmas mini album. I warn you now, this is photo heavy! 

For the cover I used a Spellbinders ~ Poinsettia die.

This is quite a chunky album and here are the pages.


Inside cover:

First page:


Second page: for each left hand page I made a pocket for a pull out tag, meant for journalling that day's page. The right hand page is for adding the photographic memory of that day.

The first day of Christmas starts with Christmas day.


Papers ~ I've used a mixture from Making Memories, Simple Stories and Authentique.

Day 2:


Day 3 doesn't have a pullout tag.

 
Day 4: You might notice that the binding edges of each pages are covered with washi tape.


Day 5: I will show you the left and right hand page


Day 6:

Day 7:


Day 8:


I used Doodlebug for the red & white twine.

Day 9:


Day 10:

Day 11:


Day 12:

I love this! The papers are perfect and using them on the poinsettia was very unique (usually only solids are used). Thanks so much for playing along with us at the Simon Says Stamp challenge this week, Keeley!
