Creating a Collage Style Album by Tessa Ann!

We all have lots of cards and fun papers left over from the Holiday season. Why not combine them in a fun way to create a mini album of your holiday?

Patterned Papers: Cosmo Cricket and My Minds Eye
Raw Chipboard
Die Cuts: Cosmo Cricket "Jolly By Golly"
Labels: Font Werks
Alphas: American Crafts, Scenic Route and Doodlebug
Buttons: The Button Shop (
Bakers Twine


1.) Gather assorted sizes of scrapbooking paper and memorbilia (such as cards, envelopes, gift bags, tags etc.)

2.) When you decide how you would like to arrange your book, stack together your papers and memorbia. Using a crop-a-dile, punch holes and add jump rings.

3.) Adhere photos throughout book and embellish with alphas, buttons, ribbon and die cuts that match your theme!

You now have a way to put all of the beautiful holiday cards and memorabilia into an album!
