Merry Days - Scrapbook & Cards Today December Album

Can you believe I completed this Album in one day??!!  I can't!!  I attend a 12 hour crop at a community hall with friends every month or so and yesterday I was able to throw this together.  Of course it helped that I had instructions with the kit and I wasn't planning my pages around photos I already had.  That's the beauty of creating an album this way!!  This was a kit put together by Virginia Nebel and sold at Scrapbook and Cards Today and Crop & Create in September.

The kit used products from the Bella Boulevard Make It Merry line, Becky Higgins gold foiled PL cards, Simple Stories Claus & Co. line, some Sn@p products, Heidi Swapp foam letters and American Crafts Album, chipboard and roller stamp.

Be warned - this post is very photo heavy!!











There were a few little inserts throughout the album - this was an altered envelope.








I had to share a close up of the embossing powder I used on the chipboard pieces.  I didn't want to use them in their plane state so I decided to heat emboss them with this cool embossing enamel.  It's Aged Ivory by Stampendous - I love the gold flecks!!  














I was thinking of giving this away as a gift, but now I'm not so sure :)  It's kind of nice to have an album ready and waiting for photos!!  Now the idea of documenting 25 days of December is a little overwhelming to me.  It kind of feels like pressure to take a picture each day and document it.  So I'd rather do something like 25 Favourite Things of December or Christmas instead.
