December Craft Hoarders Blog Hop

Good morning friends and welcome to our December monthly Craft Hoarders Hop.  Let's face it, we are all hoarders to some degree, just some of us are worse than others!  I've been at this for a few years and I have stuff  supplies crammed everywhere.  So much so, that I forget some of the pretty papers I have.  I've had this paper pad for awhile now and decided it was time to use it or lose it.  And suddenly a quick fold out mini appeared! The paper is from My Mind's Eye and it's signature CHRISTMAS Holiday Glitter Book- 2009.  It is a huge pad of paper and even after making this, there is a lot left to play with.

I made a quick white poinsettia with my Layered Poinsettia Die from Spellbinders.  It has a gold center and some pretty Martha Stewart punch branches.  then it is all tied up with a piece of white ribbon.  And thankfully, all my reindeer are leaping in the same direction!

I added a gold leaping reindeer and tied a red bow for his neck.  I used lots of lace and pretty die cuts to decorate the inside and then I made some tags to slip down inside the pockets.

Nothing like a few pearls to adorn the snowflakes and a few more tags.

And this is the back side all folded out for you to see!  I even added some bling here and there.  This will be going in the basket for my neighbor.  These little mini albums make wonderful gifts.
