CASEing the Catty #52 - 10 things I LOVE about Christmas mini - card with a difference, it's a mini album !!

Welcome to the Bloghop for this week. We are Casing items using Project Life but I seem to have gone off on a bit of a tangent ..... oh well, it's something different for me so that's a good challenge!

You may have arrived from the talented Julia Quinn's blog or you may be starting here. We hope you find something to inspire you along the way. Be sure and stop to check everyone's projects inspired by the Project Life Christmas range. There are lots of great products in this range which can be used for both scrapbooking and for card making.

I am not very good at using project life, ( hopeless at organising my photos),  nor I do I seem to be able to make anything simply (which project life is designed for) so this is a rather loose connection to the project life brief but I have been wanting to make these cards for a while. I was inspired by the picture on page 36 -


- with the numbers in the sparkling circles, and the idea of journalling a Christmas countdown.
So I have made a card with a difference - a mini album to journal Christmas memories, Christmas traditions, recipes,gifts, carols, games etc. It is titled "10 things I love about christmas

Front Cover
The first page, with the jump ring closed and the pages fanned out.
I have opened up the book and photographed groups of individual pages so you get the idea. Each page is numbered and says "i love", and has the Radial stamp from Kinda Eclectic in Mint Macarron. ( I masked the centre with a circle of card to give me space for the numbers).  All the pages are slightly different and have been decorated with scrap strips of DSP. It can easily be personalised by adding in photographs or other personal Christmas memorabilia. 


Turn the Mossy Meadow WISH page and you'll be surprised with what's next.




It's a different take on a Chritmas card but could easily be posted as it's small enough to fit in a regular D6 envelop.

xt on the hop is.....
