Christmas 2 Day Blog Hop and Candy - Day 2


Sorry this is up so late.  I had it scheduled to post this morning but for some reason it did not work.  I just got on to do the hop myself when I noticed mine was not up.

If you are here for the Christmas Blog Hop then you are in the right place! If you are just finding us please be sure to visit Josy's Blog to start at the beginning of the hop. You should have arrived from Alex's Blog and after my blog you will be going to Yolanda's Blog.

My project today is another Christmas present.For today's project I made a mini album for one of my Christmas presents. I am not saying whose present it is in case they read this.

Here are the supplies I gathered together to use but did not use everything

First I started with a round tin that had coasters with it, I bought it at my LSS on clearance for $1.  Then I took the coaster covered each side of each one with coordinating pp from DCWV Christmas paper from last year. I placed the coaster on the back of the paper and traced it and cut them out by hand. I took my black paint dauber and covered all the edges and slightly onto the flat part of the coaster before I taped my pp on. Then I applied Modge Podge over everything to seal the edges of the paper.



I decorated my pages with various embellishments. I tried to only glue the embellishments on the outer edges of the circle so that a photo could be slipped in behind them.


I am offering blog candy for the hop and because it is my blogaversary too. I have the Cricut cartridge Country Life and the Scrapbooking with Cricut book.  To get in with a chance to win this, please be a follower, post this in your sidebar, or if you do not have a blog, do a post about it somewhere and give me the link in your comment and leave a comment by December 18th. If you want an extra chance, visit my post from the blog hop yesterday and leave a comment as well and that will give you a second entry. I will be drawing the winner from the comments on this post and on yesterday's post. I will draw a winner on December 19th, my hubby's birthday.
