This is the outside of the tree album. I wish I had put the red tinsel trim actually on the edge of the scallops. What was I thinking? And I sewed the jingle bells onto ribbon and then hot glued the ribbon at the edge of a scallop. Not a good idea! I need to wire these on and punch holes in the scallop edges so they will actually jingle. Also needed: lots more bling. I used a lot of K and Company pre-made diecuts for embellishment.
My major gripe with this album is that it is really too small for pictures, and I think that is the whole point of an album! So I have really thought hard about how to add pictures. This page shows how I put a Tim Holtz Sizzix ornament die to good use as a photo frame.
And the inside of this largest page shows a mini album I inserted to hold more pictures. The red mini album is about 3" x 3" and is just folded pages that will flip so I can add pictures. Then the album is just glued onto the page. The previous page shows a green pocket that holds red tags for more pictures and journaling. I have a few other ideas up my sleeve for how to continue to add space for pictures while keeping the whole album highly embellished, like a Christmas tree!
