Time for Christmas

Hello RRR peeps!  Are you all snuggled up this Sunday morning?  Grab your coffee or fave beverage and bear with me....I have lots of photos.  I know Halloween hasn't quite hit yet but I already have a Christmas scrapbook album to share.  I can't help  myself!

I started with a 7 Gypsies photo album and painted it all up with my favorite white chalk paint and went to town distressing my edges.  I love how chalk paint distresses so easy!  I cut all my papers out figuring in my mind what paper I wanted on each page..adding a bit of Raspberry Road Designs gingham paper to enhance each page.  From there it was allllll about my embellies.  Lots of chipboard, borders, stickers etc to pizzazz it up.  I added a bit of hand stamping to the tabs.  Hand stamping adds that warm homespun look.  It really adds a sense of handmade to me.

I also used an aging process on the mini jello mold, jingle bell (which I first painted with chalk paint), my stamped tag, and the ol' cow bell on the front cover.  From here I took my ring clips and assembled everything and started adding my yummy RRR ribbons.  The more the better.  I used wired Faux burlap ribbonlinen candy cane print (which I aged), 2 1/2 inch cotton blend ribbon,  and cherry twine.   This took quite a bit of time but I love the outcome!  Hope you do too.
                                                                     Hugs, Cherry


  1. So very fabulous! Love the colors and images so much and the burlap ribbon really sets it off!

  3. What a gorgeous Christmas album. Gorgeous details and beautiful ribbon. Love the rustic jingle bells that really make it a beautiful vintage or country looking card.
