25 December Days mini album tutorial
Day 20 - end

Hello and Christmas wishes Sassy Friends!
I hope the next few days see you ticking off the last few things on the 'to do' list 
and by the end of the weekend, you can put your feet up, and toast to the season!
My 25 December Days album is fat and happy. It's going to need major convincing to close when the time comes! Today we are going to go through the last few days, so it's all ready for you when you get a chance to sit and relaaaaaaax ;)

DAY 20

The 'Merry & Bright' page will follow, overleaf. I've popped a candy transparency 
and a small punched circle on one side...

 ... and opposite (for page 20, I realise I haven't placed numbers to mark the day, lol) I've used some leftovers from the vellum envelope cuts (you could use
some of the cut vellum snowflakes supplied with your kit), a transparency banner and made a little tag with the 'ho ho ho' die cut and some gold ribbon.

DAY 21

This page has another pocket page. I've cut the 'deck the halls' from the 'Santa Highway' paper and adhered it to the paper, just slightly below where the pocket starts, to give it the illusion it is coming out of the pocket.

To make the little wreath embellishment

Cut a circle (any size you like... this one happens to be about 40mm across.)

Now cut out a smaller circle inside it. Thread some of the gold twine around the bottom section and tie off so that the knot is hidden once adhered to the page.

Add a little transparent holly shape.


DAY 22

Using the frame transparency, Day 22 uses some more gorgeous tiny stars


Cut a piece of the Maggie Holmes to size 75mm (w) x 145mm (h) Adhere this to the page. 

Take some tiny stars and arrange them in a little bunch in the middle.

Next, take the frame transparency and apply adhesive all around the edges under the green area. Make sure you cover the edges completely with adhesive so that none of the stars escape!!

Pop the frame over the stars and finish off with two large '2' shapes.

DAY 23

We can almost hear Santa's sleigh bells by now! 
Let's create some hidden journalling in the shape of a bauble.


To create the bauble

The bauble is made up of two circular shapes. One is cut from plain white paper/cardstock and the other is the same size, but from the 'Sleigh Bell Trail' paper.


Place the two green semi circles over the top, and secure with a green mini brad on each side.


The halves open to reveal your journalling!

Finish off with a bow tied from the red and white striped ribbon,
 an epoxy button and another small bauble created with a candy shaped transparency 
that has been punched and threaded with cotton.

Websters Pages heart paperclip and another heart wood veneer

DAY 24

He is on his way! Merry Christmas to all and to all, a good night...

opposite page:

We are going to be adding in one more banner, using the punch and cut method described earlier.


This little fellow is 125mm (w) x 43mm (h) cut from 'Chestnut Street' paper. 
Punch three holes to correspond to the binding comb and snip as described before.


Pop the banner in, over the binding comb and attach to the 
pre-cut banner page, using foam tape/dots.

Do the same on the little navy 'merry christmas to all' banner from the 25th & Pine pack...
Pop in and adhere with foam tape/dots.

If we turn overleaf...

a 'Merry Christmas' gift shape cut from 'Santa Highway' paper.

And there you have it!

Hope you have enjoyed putting your album together as much as I have enjoyed creating it.
I would love to see how yours turns out!
