Christmas Mini Album Cover Plus A Sale!!

Hey everyone! I'm back with my second post today! I've started a mini album! I have a few pages done inside but till it's completely done I'm only going to share the cover. Lindsay has came out with two new sets this week Natures Christmas and Many Blessings! I was so excited when I seen Natures Christmas! I've been wanting to do a Christmas album and it gave me the inspiration I needed to get one started!! The cardinals are so pretty in her sets I immediately printed one up and got started coloring!! I used my prisma pencils to color this time. I haven't used them in awhile and I thought I might have better luck with them over my copics (don't ask me why wierd huh?) After I got it colored I used some Tim Holtz vintage photo distressing ink to give it a vintage feel. I've also done some heat embossing with a flourish stamp that I've had for a while. I used the gold embossing powder from stampin up. It's hard to tell in the picture but I've stamped it twice and then I added some clear dew drops (made me think of berries just not red lol) I made the poinsetta with my cricut cartridge, Joys of the season. I cut the poinsetta out in three different colors and three different sizes then added some gold stickles. I also added a little yellow flower brad for the center. I used a metal label holder and added the rub on word moment. The word beautiful up above that is also a rub on. I've tied my ribbon on but I haven't trimmed it yet. I think I'm going to do that when the album is complete.  Well, that's it! That's my album cover! I can't wait to get it all complete! I'm slow, Christmas may be already over by the time I'm thru! I love mini albums and wished I would do more of them but for some reason they stress me out!! With this one I'm just going to take my time and have fun! Before I go I also want to share Lindsay's fall sale. It's a one day sale only running midnight to midnight mst Thursday only! It's just in time to get her new stamp sets and ones that you may have had your eyes on for awhile!!
