Simple 12 Days of Christmas Mini-Album

I've been spending all of my time crafting or scrapbooking. I just finished a scrapbook of high school years for one dear lady and lots of craft items for a local store that's having an open house today.  Here's  one of the mini-albums I made using Graphic 45's Twelve Days of Christmas ephemera cards and background paper. It's  a 7" x 5" accordion album made from Kraft cardstock with black cardstock "hinges." All of the pages have either a mat for photos or some type of pocket or partially adhered fussy cut image that serves as a pocket. Two of the pages have fold out flaps to include more photos.

I tried to keep it simple and it took me most of one morning between breakfast and lunch. Not bad since I'm usually slow. Here are lots of photos:

 Days 4 (Four calling birds) and 7 (Seven geese a-laying) have the fold-out features.

Here's the back side. It unfortunately received too much sunlight when I took the photos.

The last page included the entire song. If you grew up singing this like I did, it's a great reminder of Christmas past that is lovely to pass on to the next generations.

Thank you for visiting! May God bless you as you craft and bless the recipients of your work!
