Happy Saturday, everyone! Are we all ready for Christmas?! I'm gettin' there! :-) Java Jen here from Java Jen Creations !  Once again, I am so honored to be here and share my simple project with you all! Thanks, Sheila!

Back in October,  I made a mini album based on Heidi Swapp's tutorial on My Craft Channel. For her tutorial click HERE ! This time, I'm using what I think is the easiest version of her albums. Basically, you just pick papers and adhere them back to back until you have as many pages in your album that you want.

Here is a pic of my completed mini album:
I used a retired paper pack from Creative Memories called Candy Cane. All of the Cricut cuts are from the Creative Memories Cheerful Seasons cartridge. I also used the Creative Memories tag punch and corner rounder. 
For the cover, cut an 8.5"x12" piece of solid card stock. This makes the album size 8.5"x6".  The inside pages are printed papers from the kit and are cut to 8"x11.5" so that when the book is closed the pages don't hang over the edge.  
Here are pics of how I embellished the pages with photo mats made from paper in the Candy Cane kit. There were also card stock stickers in this kit. 
The Cricut cuts dimensions are as follows:
"memories" ticket and layers: 2.29"
present and layers: 1.59"
snowflake and layers: 1.59"
snowman and layers: 2.65"
tree and layers: 2.65"

See - told you it was a simple project! :-) Hope you are inspired to make some precious memories this Christmas season!
