Merry Christmas!

Christmastime brings out the shutterbug in all. With that in mind, they need a place to put all of those wonderful pictures after the holidays. This album is perfect for the shutterbug in your life!

Supplies Used:
Zutter 8” x 10” Clip-Board Wood Covers
Zutter ¾” Red Owire
Me&My Big Ideas Papers
Bazzill Cardstock
Holly Leaf by Making Memories
Hallmark Ribbon, Beads & Package
Doilie by Royal Lace
Helmar Acid Free Glue
Helmar Liquid Scrap Dots
Helmar Vellum Spray

Cut out 8” x 10” pattern paper for the album cover. Cut out 8” x 10” cardstock for the album pages. I love the freedom one has with Zutter to create custom albums. Apply the paper to the cover using Helmar Acid Free Glue. After the adhesive dries, I lightly sand the edges with a sand block. With the Zutter Bind-it-All tool I punch the holes and bind the album together using ¾”OWire. Apply Helmar Vellum Spray to a doilie. Here I cut a paper doilie in half, one half for the fornt and the other for the back cover. Then I embellish the album cover using Helmar Liquid Scrap Dots. The last thing I do is tie ribbons on the album binding if desired.

Wishing you and your family a very Merry Christmas with many happy memories in the New Year!
