PaperCraft Star Blog Hop!

If you have arrived here from Tracy's blog, than you are in the right place! If not, please head to her blog first because Tracy's blog is the starting point! Each member of the PaperCraft Star team has some wonderful blog candy to give away, so be sure to visit every stop on this blog hop!

All you need to do to win blog candy here at Emora Designs by Regan is to become a follower and leave a comment! Be sure to tell your friends so that they can join the fun! I will announce the winner on July 26th, so be sure to swing back by to see who wins!!

Now on to my project..

I just love Christmas, so I created two projects! One is an Ornament mini album and the other is a 12X12 layout! I used the Christmas Cheer specialty paper by K&Company on both projects!




I thought the ornament mini album would be a cute addition to any Christmas tree! Not only can you display it on your tree, but when opened you could have your Favorite Christmas Recipes or your family christmas pictures! It simply swivels open! The front and back covers are chipboard while the inside pages are just double sided designer paper!


Supplies:
Paper: Metallic Gold paper by Stampin' Up!
Patterned Paper: Christmas Cheer by K&Company
Stamps: Digital Stamp Christmas Tickets by MissCutiePieInspirations.blogspot.com
Tools: BigKick, Ornament Ball Sizzix Die, Gold office brad, Big Bite, and hot glue gun
Embellishments: Prima Poinsettias and leaves, Trim from Joann's, Brown Satin Ribbon by SU!, Kraft Taffeta Ribbon, Making Memories Garment Pin, and Two Jingle Bells
Other: Gold Glimmer Glass and Jingle Bell Sheet Music


Thank you for stopping by!
The next stop on the hop is Jan.

Have a great time!
Regan

I love both ideas. The sheet music looks great, and the mini-album would be so fun for gifts. If I had kids, I would think it would be a great way to use those wallet photos to make a great gift.
