MOSD Christmas Traditions Mini

Merry Christmas Everyone! I hope you all have the Peace of the Lord today. May you spend the day celebrating our Lord's birth and enjoying goodwill toward men!

I typed this on the 23rd, so don't think I've sneaked away from my family to blog! But I do want to show you what I made for my MOSD project for December. You'll notice there are no photos in my mini yet...but you know how I am about making stuff and then waiting dog's years to actually put photos in them!

I used pages from the MOSD Build-a-Book set. These are 6x6 shaped and square pages that you can mix and match to create your own custom book! I used 3 clear squares, 2 large scallop chipboard pages, 2 half circle chipboard pages, and 1 chipboard square. I used a mix of papers and products for this album. Plus, lots of glittery items and buttons and flowers. Take a peek!

Here is the cover. I painted the edges of all the clear pages with acrylic paint and Stickles. I attached a piece of double sided paper to the clear cover using Xyron adhesive.

Here is a view of the shaped pages.

And a top view.

Page 1: You can see the back of the cover paper through the clear acrylic. I added a rub-on directly onto the acrylic page.

Here is an overlay transparency that I added for some extra visual interest. I trimmed it to 6x6 and then punched holes with the Bind-it-All.

Page 6 is clear, so you can see Page 8 peeking through:

Here is the flip side, Page 7:

Page 8: I used neutral paper for my photo mats.

Page 9: My friend Jacquie cut this large music note from chipboard. It was a piece of clip art she printed off the computer. I attached the black dotted Swiss Bazzill to it to jazz it up.

I bound the album with the Bind-it-All and tied on lots of festive ribbons.

I hope you are inspired to create your own mini album this year. Blessed Christmas!
