A Christmas Gift

Yes, yes, I'm STILL using the November kit.

I can't help it, it's got some of my very favorite things in it!

I made this little flip book from Snapfish as a gift for my husband's Grandma, but when it came, I knew I just had to spiff it up. I couldn't leave it plain! The pages are basically just photos bound together, so the backside of each photo was just white.

The cover has letter stickers from the December kit, plus some October Afternoon stickers from my stash. I was skeptical about the Tim Holtz film strip stuff at first, but I've ended up using it on every project! It's really cool!
The little sticker strips from 7 Gypsies were the perfect touch for this simple album.
To go along with this gift, I bought these cool Ranger Ink/Tim Holtz frames, glass slides, and swivel chains. I made a 1.5" x 1.5" square of paper, slapped Grandma's first initial on one side, and then put a 1.5" x 1.5" collage (made it in Picnik because it was fast & easy!) on the other side!
The collage goes in between two glass slides- I made this in about 5 minutes. I love it! You could also make these into necklaces.... ;)A fun & easy Christmas gift!
