Season's Greetings "Beaded Matchbook" Mini Album

Merry Christmas to everyone! I hope you all had a wonderful holiday weekend.

This is my weekly Monday post for the Pumpkin Spice Blog.

I want to share with you a mini album I made for my grandparents. This album was inspired by the very talented Laura from "Following the Paper Trail". Click here to see her amazing picture how-to tutorial and video. The photos in the album are all the Christmas card pictures from my cousins. I know my grandparents will love this album filled with pictures of the grand and great-grand children.

Front and side covers.

Each page has a pull out tag to hold more pictures and journaling.

The Element Stickers are perfect to embellish the pull out tags. Not too thick.

The poni beads between the pages give lots of room for the thick chipboard embellishments.

There are sooo many embellishments that come with this paper line. It's amazing! After this album was done I had tons left over!

Last page. I used a tag from the journaling page to write a little note to my grandparents.

See how nice and thick the album turned out to be!
