Christmas Mini Album using Jolly Holidays

Hi everyone, Beth here from thunderbirdlindybydesign.  I haven't posted on The Bug Bytes since early spring.  Pam allowed me to take the summer off to get some things done around the house.  I had every intention of having this done by 6 am this morning, but it just didn't work out.  I wanted to make a mini with acrylic windows in is like a house.  I started by using my gypsy and searching for houses.  Jolly Holidays came up and it had 5 different house shapes on it.  I used all 5 sizing each to be 7.90 tall.  I used bits and pieces out of their layers also.  I put one house on the mat and then using George, I used the rectangle and fit it inside the house sizing the rectangle until I was happy with the size.  I hid contours on the house except for the outline of the house, and cut them out.  1 from chipboard, and 2 from cardstock, flipping the image on one of the cardstock cuts. 

I attached the a piece of acrylic to the front of the chipboard and then layered the front piece of cardstock to that.

Here is what the piece looks like with the cardstock,chipboard, and acrylic.  Unfortunately you can't see the acrylic in this pic.

On the flip side I attached another piece of acrylic to the flipped cardstock.  I didn't have any photo paper, so I couldn't print out last years Christmas pics and put inside the layers, so when I attached to back of the back side of the house to the front side, I left the top unglued so I could slip the pics inside after I get them printed.

I then cut the rest of the houses and their layers.  I had to cut some of the snow for the roof so the pics would show and the snow would not overlap the acrylic.

Here is the finished album.

I used Eskimo Kisses cardstock for this project that I had left over from last year.  On one of the sheets was tiny colorful deer.  So one of my carts had the deer cut on it and I added that to the back page.  I also punched snowflakes that I glittered.  My daughter walked in at that point so I asked her to add the snowflakes to the album how she wanted.  She insisted on adding the pearl rhinestones to each snowflake.

Thanks Pam for allowing me to be a guest designer, until next month, Beth.
