Christmas Coaster Mini

Hello Everyone,

Hope everyone is planning a marvelous celebration for New Year's Eve. I'm back with a simple 4x4 coaster mini that I made as a thank you gift. This is the cover. The whole page is made from a page from a calendar. The snowman and tag are on dimensional dots. The color scheme for the mini was red, pink and green. I used papers that I have had for some time.

Pages 1 and 2. The white swirl is a Close to My Heart chipboard piece as is the button. A photo can slide under the swirl. Page 2 is a pocket page created with some Daisy D's paper.
Page 3 is another pocket page. I created the pocket with a piece from the calendar page. It is covered with some pink cardstock. Page 4 is covered with some DCWV paper. The chipboard tag is from CTMH and so is the stamp. Again, a photo can slide behind the tag.

Page 5 is a flip out page. The gift is from the same calendar page. I used some green polka dot ribbon from my stash as a closure. The chipboard frame on page 6 is from my stash. I painted it pink and added a chipboard button. I coated both buttons with some glossy accents for a little shine. The background paper is Paper Studio.

This is page 5 unfolded in one direction. The ornaments were from the calendar page and the journal spot was a Autumn Leaves stamp. The snowflakes are from CTMH.

Page 5 unfolded the other way. More calendar and some stamping.

And this is the back cover. The paper is old DCWV. Here you can see that I edged all of the pages with white paint. The star is more chipboard from CTMH.

Here are the tags from Pages 2 and 3. I backed some cardstock with designer paper and more calendar page.
The backs are journaling spots. i used DI in Worn Lipstick and Pine Needles and stamps from CTMH. The journaling is Archival Ink and Autumn Leaves stamps.

That's it. Simple and quick.
Thanks for the visit. Comments are appreciated. Until next time, happy scrappin.

Vintage Christmas TP Mini Pt. 2

Hello Everyone,

I know you've all been anxiously awaiting so here it is Part 2 of the Vintage Christmas TP mini. These are pages 7 and 8. Page 7 has a small pockets book with tags. I learned to do this from Roses915 on YouTube. Page 8 is just a piece of chipboard that I covered with design paper.

These are pages 9 and 10. Page 9 has a chipboard piece that I painted with gold acrylic. The ticket shape is a chipboard piece. Page 10 has an extra flap page added with a snowflake.
These are the tags in the flap's pocket. The backs have journaling spots.

This is the page 10 flap open.

Then the flap opens up to reveal one more photo mat.

These are the tags that go in the pockets of the TP rolls. I inked them with DI in Vintage Photo and Walnut Stain. I stamped them with Inkadinkadoo stamps. The snowman was from an image swap. I have embossed the images in black.

The backs of the tags. I stamped the backs with several different stamps.

Finally the back cover. This is a vintage image I got from the Graphics Fairy. In fact, nearly all of the images came from the Graphics Fairy. Some came from Graphic 45.

Well that's all folks. I have another Christmas TP mini completed that I will be posting later.
Thanks for the comments and thanks for the visit. Until next time, happy scrappin.

Vintage Christmas TP Mini Pt 1

Hello Everyone,
What is a TP mini? A toilet paper roll mini of course. I participated in a Vintage Christmas TP mini swap over at the Scrap Beach. (You can check it out by clicking on the badge on my sidebar>>>.) The mini is made from 5 tp rolls. Each roll has a #5 shipping tag. I have used Daisy D's vintage Christmas paper throughout. I used acrylic paints, stamps, distress inks. Too much to talk about individually. If you have questions, leave a comment and I'll get back to you with an answer. this is the cover.

Pages 1 and 2. There is a chipboard frame between them. The star is chipboard that I painted with gold acrylic and grunged with distress ink.

Page 1 has a flap that opens revealing a pocket with tags. A photo can slide under the vintage image.

This is the back of the frame and page 2.

Page 2 also has a flap that opens up.

Pages 3 and 4. Page 4 has an accordion fold that provides 4 photo mats and 3 journaling spaces.

Page 3 has a flap that has a journaling spot on the back and a photo spot.

Pages 5 and 6. Page 5 has a poinsettia that I made using the SU 5 petal flower punch and acrylic paints. A photo can slide behind the ornaments. I made those using the SU ornament punch.

Well, that's part 1. I will post the rest of the mini in a few days.
Thanks for stopping by. Til next time, happy scrappin.
