Yearly MIni Albums...

Hi everyone! This is Kristy from craftin-on-my-door and I want to thank Sheila for allowing my to be her guest designer again today! I look forward to my monthly She's a Sassy Lady posts!
This month I thought I would show you all the mini albums I made for Little Stinkerbella's grandparents, for Christmas. (I know that Christmas has come and gone, but these would also be great gradparent's day, father's or mother's day gifts!) I used my YourStory photo machine and a few 6 x 6 paper pads from My Mind's Eye.  
 I started by trimming all of my photos down to 5 x 3.75.
 Then I trimmed the papers to 6 x 4 1/8.
 Next, I typed up the months of the year using Microsoft Word and the Kwekel font.
I used a Stampin' Up label punch to "punch" out each month.
Then I glued down the pictures and the month to each page (I had to keep these simple since I was making 8!)
 Here's what each page of the book looked like.

 Here's the same pics on different paper.

 I used a binder to clip to hold my pages together while in the machine.
Then, I lined up the letter stickers onto a ruler, and then placed the title onto the cover.
 I added some tulle or ribbon and some twine, and of course the year. Here's are all the different mini albums.

 Hope you enjoyed these fun little mini albums! Thanks for stopping by today! ♥Kristy
