Baby's 1st Christmas Mini Album

Hello friends! Happy American Thanksgiving to all my American friends that are celebrating today.

I wanted to share with you another mini album. I created it with some medium size red paper bags that are found at Michael's in the party supplies section. This one is for my grandson's first Christmas.


I am in love with printing design papers at home lately. I find it works for me as I can print only what I need and resize it to be suitable for cards and mini albums. This collection is designed by Nitwit Collections and is from the Baby's First Christmas Collection.

I also shared this mini album on the A Flair For Buttons blog as one of my design team projects. I love flair buttons and they work perfectly for this album.  The cute penguin flair button on the front cover is from the Christmas Fun 2 Flair Set.


There are lots of pockets and tags to house photos and journaling. On one tag I added a an adorable snowman flair button from the Vintage Snowman 2 Flair Set. 

On another tag, I added the cute reindeer slippers flair button from the Christmas Fun 2 Flair Set.


I love the way the paper bags work as extra pockets to tuck in more photos and journaling tags.
This paper bag mini album has lots of places to add photos.


For the spine, I added red, green and silver ribbon and tied some cute little christmas themed buttons using "Dress It Up" buttons.


I found some cute red ribbon with Rudolph at Michael's and added it to the album so it can be tied in a bow to close up the album.

Thanks for stopping by and be sure to check out the A Flair For Buttons shop for these and many more flair buttons for the holiday season or any season.

Have a creative day!

Santa Please Stop Here Christmas Paper Bag Mini Album

Hello friends!

Today I have another mini album to share for A Flair For Buttons using seven, yes seven flair buttons from various flair sets in the shop.

This album was fun to put together. The base of the album is made from kraft paper lunch bags. then covered with design papers, stickers and ephemera die cuts from the adorable Photoplay Paper's Oh Canada Christmas Collection by Becky Fleck Moore.

Here are some photos of the pages, pockets and tags in the album:

This was a lot of fun to create and I can't wait to gift it to my daughter so she can add some Christmas photos.

Have a great creative day!
