36 Merry Days: Christmas Minibook Cover

36 Merry Days

I had so much fun making this cover. I was inspired by two things: the peppermint candy dominance in my Christmas tree decorations, and a homemade sign similar to this one at a locally grown exotic fruit tree lot down the street from me.

I have all kinds of ideas for these quirky old signs and I plan to share how to make them in one of the January member video tutorials (find out about that here).

I’ve been assembling an album about the fun stuff we do when we visit Grandma and Grandpa in Missouri, so I’ll be making a similar sign to this one for that album in my tutorial.

Here’s the inside of my cover:

The glittered snow flake on the right was an ornament for our tree that broke last year. I love it against the gold and clear transparency. I added Glossy Accents to the snow flake and it seems to be nice and sturdy.

I’ll be back as I have a few minutes to share each of my pages individually. Thanks for looking!

  • I love that you used a broken ornament as an embellishment – it really looks like you meant it to¬† be that way.

  • Thank you!
