those are all very cute, where did you get your snowmen and your penguin? did you paper piece them yourself? I have one friend that always sends us the nuttiest holiday cards, this years had a fat guy at a party with old fashioned x-mas light bulbs stuck in his nose (one in each nostril) I'll have to do an upside down card for him next year http://forum.startascrapbook.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif he'd think it was the way it was suposed to be.

The snowmen and penguins were from WalMart in the cardstock packs for 6.88
And I did all the paper piecing by hand.
I think I cut 200 pieces that week! haha

These are absolutely beautiful! I'd love to get one of these! What are the dimensions...do they fit in a regular envelope or did you have to make those also?

They fit into card envelopes. I got special envelope because I wanted clear ones, so I ordered transparent ones.

They are 4" by 5.25"

- 1 strip of 12"x4.5" card stock for the album cover (double sided patterned card is awesome for this cover)
- 4 - 8 pieces of 4.5"x5" for the pages of the album
- Stapler and staples
- patterned paper + embellishments to decorate

The final product will have up to 8 pages and will measure approx 5.25"x4"


I knwo they are usually made for mini albums but I wanted unusual cards this year.

Those are great cards! I like all of them, including the one with the upside down page- makes it more unique.

I would like to do it again in a year when I have more experience and more techniques. http://forum.startascrapbook.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

I think they make great cards! I knwo they aren't intended for that but I like them as cards.

I like all of them. With so many different ones how do you decide who to send each one to, that would be my problem? Cyndi
