How you feeling about now?

Last Minute Gift Idea | 6x8 Album |

Can I share one of my gift secrets with you? A 6x8 album. Yep! I have been gathering a few of these albums to give as gifts this year for Christmas.

You have seen me talk about the exclusive 6x8 2-ring binders on this year's December Album videos. You can look at those right HERE. Honestly, I have quite the collection of these albums now. They are a great size. There are plenty of pocket page orientations to choose from. AND...I am hoping (fingers crossed) that these will be received as great gifts.

Last Minute Gift Idea | 6x8 Album | cannot forget the making of a pretty tag to sit on said album gift. Here's what I did.

Purchased the white 6x8 2-ring binder. Then a good collection of pocket page protector. Those were then tucked inside the album.

Then a piece of wide ribbon that was here in the stash wrapped the album and the protectors closed. 

But wait...there's more...

Then a tag HAD to be crafted to give the gift idea a finishing touch. 

Want to know how this was made?

Well, that Roses Smooth Cardstock is my friend. I grabbed one of the darker hues and stamped it with the Thankful And Grateful Slimline Stamp in Aged Mahogany. That was trimmed down to about 2 1/2-inches wide and v notched at the end.

Next, the MERRY Block was cut out of a piece of scrap paper found in the stash. It was glued to a piece of vellum, also v-notched at the end.

Seasonal Sketch dies were cut with one of the Mixed Metals cardstock. Those sweet cuts were tucked under seam binding I had dyed with Tattered Rose Distress Ink.

Then, using my ever so beloved December Wordfetti word phrase stamps set I stamped the phrase and trimmed it out like a journal strip to finish off this tag.

Now you know my secret for being on the nice list. Give a gift of storytelling with this 6x8 Album. Not only will this be given as a gift, but the intent is to then help the recipient with a photo project they have spoken of. It's a gift + a gift. Can't wait for Christmas in a big way.

If you have any questions regarding this or anything else, please let me know. Always happy to help someone stay on the nice list.
