Letters to Santa

I love the "Letters to Santa" line this year don't you! The papers and embellishments are so fun, and the two matching stamp sets (Winter Post, Merry & Type) are so much fun. It reminds me of an old-fashioned Christmas. So, when my mom and I decided to hold an MDS class for some of her customers these products were an easy choice.
The class was focused on making the most out of a scrapbook templates. So we started with a 10 page scrapbook featuring this product line, and then expanded it to the full 22 pages needed for a printed book. All in the course of an afternoon! Now that's what I call quick.
Over the course of the next couple of posts I'll share the album I designed with you all. I hope it inspires you to make your own book too.

Here is my cute cover. It features the ornament embellishments on the back-cover hanging from really skinny "square" punches filled with espresso. On the front I used the flourish from the Friends 24-7 turned upside down to make my tree (I know, it isn't from the Letters to Santa line, but it is so perfect for a tree).

Then comes the first page/title page of the album. The blue area is actually cardstock dragged into a photobox. This allows for easy switching of the layout- just delete the stamp and blue inside, and add a picture instead. Also, the bottom can either be filled with journaling or a large title.

Stay tuned for more pages to come!

Pin It!
