Signs of the Season Mini Album (Pic Heavy)

Hi guys! There are always things that I look for (and things that trigger me) to let me know that Christmas is on it's way. These signs make my spirits perk up and are the things that get me in the mood for the holiday. So this year, I decided to do a mini album dedicated to these signs. I used the amazing Noel collection from Teresa Collins. These papers are so beautiful and very well coordinated. I did not get all the pieces I wanted in the collection but I did get some good ones. One sheet has the numbers 1-25 on it that could be used for a countdown. I used that sheet to number the things I was listing. All the sheets are double sided so you feel like you get more for the money. Plus her designs are just fabulous. I can't wait for her cartridge to come out. I'll be first in line!!!

Here are the pages of my mini and the details!

The Cover - I used the Holly Jolly cart for the ornament on the cover (cut in shadow). I also used the Storybook Cart for the background piece (Accent Blackout option, 1st column, 5th row, hide the holes) . I printed the title on the computer, cut it out and glued it on the ornament. I also hand wrote the year on a piece of the paper from the collection and glued it to the back of a TH fragment with Glossy Accents. I tied a piece of red and white twine to the fragment and backed it with some black seam binding. I also inked the edges to make the cover stand out more.
