One Last Christmas Scrapbook

Today my scrapbook follows a new tutorial by Kathy Orta - Sleigh Bells from Paper Phenomenon.  I really like this tutorial as it is easy to do, is gorgeous and only uses most of a regular designer paper pack.  I used Fancy Pants Designs Merry Little Christmas collection of goodies that I purchased from

Nice simple cover almost like Santa's coat.

I modified my version to be a stand-alone album instead of the album stand for a decorative sleigh.

Inside front cover and first page with tags.  Gotta love stripes!
Peel back the tags to show the beginning of page 1 with its generous pocket.

Open the first flap to reveal lots of space for photos and two hidden areas.

This is the back side of page one and the beginning of page 2.
All the remaining 5 pages in this album follow the same flow with two great tags for pictures, two generous pockets, 2 lift up flaps and much more.

Back inside cover.
I really enjoyed making this album and I think this design is my new "go to" design for making gift albums.

Have a wonderful day!

I can't believe that this is 'easy' to do Nancy, lol, I am always gobsmacked at the content of these awesome albums, I am always looking and looking at the amazing work that is involved, I will have to try one of these out in the New Year, I really am in awe of such wonderful creativity.
Enjoy Christmas

This looks anything but easy Nancy. It on my new years list to make one of these amazing albums during 2015. I only hope I can make it look half a good as yours do.

Happy Christmas
