Guest Designer, Dottie!

Happy Sunday everyone!

I'm Dottie at DW Paper Designs and I am so thankful 
to be the guest designer today. I am part of a crafting group and I needed
to create something for my secret santa. I decided I wanted to make a mini album,
but wanted to make it extra special! So I created this mini album box. 

Here is the box closed.

Inside the box has 4 envelopes, each one decorated a little differently. 

I used the Layered Frame and Journal die to make a place for a photo.

Here are the various tags that fit in the pockets
and even a small 3 page album there on the right.

The box is made of chipboard, and I used strips of kraft to bind it 
together. The paper is all Graphic 45 and Stampin Up.
I used a ton of Jaded Blossom supplies. The poinsettia is made with the 
leaf from Spring Dies, I also used the Fancy Topper on the lid. Inside the lid is the 
Wine Tag. On the pages I used the Christmas Dies. For all the sayings 
inside and on the outside I chose the Elegant Holiday Greetings.
(one of my favorite new Christmas stamp sets)

I hope you enjoyed my project and a big thank you to the ladies
 at Jaded Blossom for this opportunity!

Have a wonderful week everyone.
