CHRISTMAS IN JULY: DAY FOUR - Gloria Stengel
Good morning, Crafters! This is Gloria Stengel with you again. Today it is my turn to share my Christmas in July project! I put my heart and soul into this GIANT Christmas mini album!
I combined the NEW Jingle Collection with last year's Vintage Christmas, Colorful Christmas, and Alpine Collections.
This big book of Christmas joy measures 9" tall, 4 1/2" wide, and 1 1/2" thick! And it weighs almost 2 pounds! That is a lot of pretty paper!
The book as a type of tri-fold cover that closes with a simple ribbon tie. Inside are more fold outs, flips, and pockets! This project is the PERFECT December Daily! There is so much space to add your photos and journaling!
Once you start opening the book, you can see all the lovely papers on display!
The book keeps opening...
...until it is approximately 25" wide! That is a lot of space for photos!
I designed the book to have an inside spine of 3/8" wide.
The outer spine is 1 1/2" wide.
I made a bit of a mistake with attaching the ribbon. I had wanted the ribbon UNDER the paper, but I totally got caught up in decorating and totally forgot it! I hope my Plan B works!
I used one of the cut-aparts from the Colorful Christmas Collection as my front cover focal point. I added lots of flowers and other Christmas-y lovelies to the cover!
Here is just a peeky of the cute images that I used for the inside of the book. If you want to see the full walk-through of the project, please click on the VIDEO below.
This mini has not only ONE waterfall element...
...it has TWO! Each waterfall can hold 21 photos, 4" x 4" size! That is perfect if you print square photos from Instagram or similar.
Thanks for joining me today!
