I used old lace and tatting as well as some newer items left over from other projects.
On the inside I used some paper that I had purchased last year (Everybody Loves Christmas from Echo Park) and mixed in some old vintage children's book pages, ledger pages, Christmas cards, etc.
I also liked how Ali used transparencies throughout her album; she sewed on trim along the edges. I love using transparencies in my ROD albums so I did a little sewing as well.
Here is some vintage Santa wrapping paper . . .
And the mouse and kitty are illustrations from an old 1950s Christmas book.
An old BINGO card . . .
a calendar/planner page
and an old Christmas doilie. I sewed everything together ROD style (thanks, Mary Ann Moss!).
I'm going to use these little doo-dads and old numbers to adorn my pages once December is here:
I can hardly wait! Now if I could just get started on the Christmas shopping.
