Products Used:

HCD 713 – Decorative Lace Border Die
HCD 739 – Banner and Trees Die
HCDP1 236 – Christmas Card Paper Collection
HCDP1 237 – Antiquity Paper Collection

Project Instructions:

Other products: Stars Five, Ribbon and Pearls from my stash, White Card Stock. Glitter Paper, adhesive and die cutting machine.

Instructions:  Using the Decorative Lace Border Die cut it 2 times and glue them together to form a long strip.  Scor at 1/4″ intervals and then trim and glue to form a circle.  Using the largest Stars Five die, cut it out using your favorite DP and attach the Decorative Lace Border Die rosette using hot glue to the center.  Finish with die cuts from the Banner and Trees Die and your favorite sentiment.

Star Mini Album:

Products Used:

HCDP1 238 – Floral Key Paper Collection

Project Instructions:

Other products: Ribbon from my stash, Card Stock. adhesive and die cutting machine.

Instructions:  Using the tutorial found here and the printed images from the Floral Key Paper Collection, cut and assemble the paper according to the instructions.   I started with the center images and simply added 1″ to both the top and sides of each layer.  As a different option you could always use photos and simply size the mini album to fit whatever size you wish.

I hope to see  you again soon.  I love to read your comments, thank you so much!
