Christmas Album

I love taking paper, adding some stamps and embellishments, and then having a customized album that can be for any theme! This is a Christmas album that we made at a stamp camp several years ago. When I entered a WOW Swap on the Bermuda Cruise trip, I made another one of these albums to swap. It's a great way to store photos without having to do a big scrapbook (although that would be fun, too, right?)! The Real Red card stock in the album looks like it's dirty or wet, but that's the Clear Envelope creating a shadow. All supplies used and shown are from Stampin' Up!
