Today I'm sharing a Kaisercraft Beyond the Page Project - a Christmas Mini Album. Here I used SB2379 BTP Gift Album to make a chunky album of photographs from last Christmas. My husband loves to take photographs and when he gets behind the camera he takes LOTS! So I had many photos from this particular part of our Christmas day last year. It also helped that the kids were in Christmas clothes which meant they matched in with the red colours in the papers! Must remember to get them to wear red again this year on Christmas Day! I had a lot of fun embellishing this project with lots of embellishments and lots of Kaisercraft Decorative Dies. The Kaisercraft Dies are amazing for decorating projects quickly and easily and because you can use the coordinating papers and everything matches. This DD327 Holly Die is perfect for Christmas. I used it a lot in different colours throughout the album.
The Album happily stands up on its own due to the chunkiness of the pages and embellishments.
I used the CM601 Mistletoe Kisses Captured Moments pack for all the little cards in this album and added some Collectables for extra embellishments.
I used two different Captured Moments Pocket Pages; CM951 Pack 1 (6x8) and CM952 Pack 2 (3x4s) for the pages of my album.
To hold my Album together I purchased M013 Album Rings in Mint. I chose this fresh colour to match the aqua colours in the papers.
This Die DD506 Foliage is one of my all-time favourites. It is a must-have for your collection. It fills spaces really well and adds detail and class to any project.
I glued most of the embellishments to the outside of the Pocket Pages. This allowed me to add different textured embellishments of varying thicknesses.
I had a few of the painted white hearts left over from my Advent Calendar so I added them as embellishments on this project too. I slipped a snowflake die cut underneath.
I had a play with Templates, Impasto and Kaisermists on the base page for some of my full page layouts. At the bottom of this page (underneath the word December) you might be able to see the row of presents from the T62612x12 Christmas Strip Template below.
On this page I used T623 12x12 Christmas Quarters Template (the writing in the top left-hand corner) to add some dimension to the layout. You can see it if you look just under the red Holly die cut.
I added one of the red tags from the Holly Jolly EM427 Tag Pack on this page tied with some red Kaisercraft Organza ribbon.
This album was really fun to make! I had a lovely time putting it all together. Its a lovely way to record Christmas memories.
