Sparkle & Shine Flip Album

Today is the day! I am so excited!! It's my annual Christmas card exchange. I look forward to this event every year. I like to mix it up and do something different each time. In the past I've done a secret gift exchange or handmade ornament exchange, in addition to swapping cards. This year I've included a cookie exchange! I was busy baking and decorating yesterday and I'm preparing for a major sugar rush today!!

I also like to provide a fun project to make so we can hang out and create for awhile! This year I've decided to create a mini flip album. After a shopping trip to Ikea this summer, I accumulated several of these darling frames. Then with the premier of the Artbooking Cricut cartridge I knew that I wanted to create a mini album. Finally, the Holiday Gift Guide arrived and the Sparkle & Shine papers and embellishments were the final touch!

The assembly will be so simple. All the pages were cut on my Cricut and then I cut the photo mats from the left over pieces of cardstock. We are decorating each page with the coordinating chipboard, zip strips, washi tape, twine and ribbon...that's stamping at all?! {whaaaat?!!}

Come back soon as I will share all the Christmas cards from the exchange, cookies and other festive surprises that even the ladies don't know about!! ;)
