Christmas Present

I love making handmade gifts for people. If I had more time, I would make them for everyone, but time is hard to come by. However, I try to make sure that Mom gets a handmade gift as often as possible. I know that she truly appreciates them, and that makes me happy. Because I know she lurks here every once in a while (Hi Mom!), I had to keep this little album to myself until after Christmas.


The chipboard album is by K&Company. I love that the edges of each page are different. It's being held closed with a ribbon from Fancy Pants that has a thin piece of elastic sewn through it.

The whole album is done in Fancy Pants papers and diecuts. The circle phrase on the front is a stamp by Art Warehouse. I heat embossed it for a deeper, shinier look

All of the photos inside are from different times throughout 2008. I also labeled those photos with when they are from.


I added a little personal message with the date to the back of the album.

I was just so happy with the way this turned out. It's kind of hard parting with creations that I love so much, but I know it went to a good home where it will be loved, shared, and taken care of. Hope you liked it, Mom!
