12 Days of Christmas: Day 8

 Welcome to DAY 8 of the Kraft-y Hearts 12 Days Blog Share. I hope you're having a great weekend!

Today's crafty goodness was made from a little tin I found at my local craft store (I think it was $1) that is used for gift cards. I thought it would make a nice mini album, so here's what I came up with:

I covered the front and back with patterned paper from the Clementine collection by Close To My Heart. Before adhering the paper, I inked the edges with Cashmere Exclusive ink. (I used Cashmere to ink all of the pages and to do some background stamping inside as well.) The chocolate swirl and sorbet flower with the chocolate button are from the Scroll Album Workshop On The Go. The sorbet flower with the creme brûlée button is from the Cottage Assortment embellishment set. I used the border and sentiments stamps from the Pear & Partridge Workshop On The Go, and stamped them in Cashmere and Chocolate Exclusive inks, respectively. I then added some rhinestones from the Brown & Tan Assortment for a little bit of sparkle. I used Colonial White grosgrain ribbon around the top edge of the tin to give it a more finished look.

 Here's a look at the inside:

The album is cut from Colonial White cardstock. I stamped the backgrounds of each page using stamps from the Scroll Album Workshop and inked the edges all with Cashmere Exclusive ink. I cut down some photo mats from the Clementine paper pack and added them to the pages. I adhered the first and last pages to the inside front and back covers of the tin and then covered them with matching pattern paper. The last photo mat was getting a little lost on the pattern paper so I popped it up using dimensional adhesive.

Here's a couple of close-ups of the cover:

Hope you enjoyed my little memory tin. Leave me a comment to be entered in my give away that I'll be conducting on 12/12/12. (The winner will receive a Capture the Date stamp set and a Chocolate Exclusive Ink dye ink pad!)

Hop on over to From My Bungalow and see the beautiful project created by the lovely and talented Lynn Darda.


  1. This is so sweet! What a great gift idea. I love that title stamp on the Kraft (I don't think I've even tried that yet, lol). I will be looking for some tins soon.
