Christmas Mini Album

Hi Crafters - I had so much stuff piled high on my crafting table and this idea came to me - Make a mini album using some of this clutter - and boy did I have fun making this album. BTW, do not throw out Christmas cards - recycle them into tags and such - then use them on your mini album - I had some stamped items & die cuts laying on my craft table, so I was able to  get the "Clutter cleaned up pretty well by adding them to this album. Now,  I have a Mini Album ready to give as a gift ~  thank you for stopping by and it's your turn to create a Mini- Album - have  a bless week! Gail

I started with some Designer Cardstock and my Sizzix Album Die [4 pages - using both sides]
