Christmas inspiration and a new DT!!!

Hi lovely blog followers and friends!!!  I have my Christmas holiday album to share with you today!  I made this using a Kaisercraft clear album along with loads of Shimmerz and Christmas collection papers by Heidi Swapp and Webster's Pages Allison Kreft.    I used some gorgeous Chippies from 2 Crafty and some Prima Resin.
I didn't do a complete December daily, I just don't have the time to fill it so instead I have just made it a holiday album for all of those special days and events we have through December.

Here is the front cover without the pages behind it:)  I like these Christmas colours for a change for me...I always shy away from red!!!

Here are a few of the pages on the inside..................

This is my last page and the other clear end to my album.  I love how the Shimmerz sat on this clear board.  It kind of looks like a Christmas Bauble!!! 

Closeups of the front cover...........

2 Crafty Reindeer and flourish.

Here is the Shimmerz colour palette I used for this Mini Album:

I also want to share with you my Christmas layout I created for the newest issue of Paperhaus.  I created this using the Paperhues for the winter issue.  You can find the link here for more inspiration!!
"Cutest Little Elf"

I love this layout......I used lots of Crate Paper along with some pretty Prima flowers.  Loads of layers as usual :)

Some cute little flags by October Afternoon.  Easy enough to make yourself though with a toothpick and paper!

I used a circle stencil underneath with lots of yummy Shimmerz colours.

The mint accent frame is by Webster's Pages.

 In other scrappy news, I have a new Design Team announcement!!!  You may have noticed I have been using a lot of 2 Crafty chipboard lately......well I have been asked to join the design team for 2014.  Super excited to be playing with all of these gorgeous chippy products!  You can find all of the details and team members HERE
I am really looking forward to my time with 2 Crafty :)
Before I go I would love to share this pic of my gorgeous 3!!  We had a little Christmas shoot yesterday and here is one of my faves :)  Melt my heart they do!


Okay, that is me for today......have a lovely week with Christmas preparations xo
