Christmas is the most awaited time of the year and a time for beautiful handmade gifts and cards. Don't leave creating these to the last minute, lets get prepared and start creating our Christmas projects today!

Our Crafters say:

So beautiful - this Festive Holly collection is so inspiring! Not to mention that Cardinals are the bird that reminds me of my mom - heart warming. - Kelly Bell

Holly and cardinals...doesn't get much better for the coming holiday season! Beautiful paper collection! - Martie Rollin

Breath taking! beautiful! How do you all continue to bring it? I'm sooo excited every month to what new toys to add to my growing collection. Some people collect dolls, coins, or other collectibles. I collect heartfelt creations. I had the privilege to met Mrs Emma Lou last month. Folks, it was worth my 6 hour drive. The class did not disappoint, nor did she. I love the whole heartfelt creations family. Thank you! Thank you! - Kate Devore

Create a quick EZ mini album using the Festive Holly Collection that your friends and family will treasure for years to come . Fill it full of memories and notes, a wonderful reminder of the times you have shared together. This album uses the beautiful papers and stamps from the Festive Holly collection in different ways to create a mini book that can be made in a very short time, is super easy to make and is a great gift for Christmas. Lets get started!


Step 1 Gather all the supplies. Cut eight pieces of white card 4.25 inches by 5.5 inches. Cut 16 pieces of pattern paper 4 1/8 inches by 5 1/8 inch and two more pieces at 4.25 x 5.5 inches for the back cover. Cut two pieces of patterned paper for the cover at 6.5 inches by 6 inches. Also stamp and color various holly leaves and cardinals and cut with coordinating die. Cut two chip board pieces at 5.75 inches by 4.75 inches.

Step 2 Score the white card panels at 0.5 inches on the longer side.

Step 3 Cover the chipboard with patterned paper cut as covers. Apply adhesive all over the chip board at the back and adhere the cover paper. Fold at the back and adhere the back cover.

Step 4 Adhere the patterned paper on the front and back of white card panels.

Step 5 Decorate the inserts with die cuts and coloured images as shown.

Step 6 Punch holes in the inserts and cover add scrap book rings and add the inserts.

Step 7 Add ribbons and decorate the cover.

Here is a look inside my album pages.

I am in love with everything I see at Heartfelt Creations. Every collection seems to be prettier than the one before it. I just can't get enough. I would give up food for the next collection if I had to. I can live without eating but I cannot live without your beautiful stamps, dies and paper. I plan to make one of these albums now and I am sure more later. Thank you for sharing, Anita.

I love everything about what i have just seen.

Just ordered my Winter's Eve Collection!!!!! I also ordered a storage binder to keep it all together. This is the greatest way to store your dies and stamps together so you do not have to spend time looking for them. The storage binder is pretty up on a shelf and very helpful. Keeps dies and stamps together in a neat fashion. Love Heartfelt Creations products always!!!!

I love the vintage look!
Tuesday 8th of August 2017 04:09 PM
That's truly amazing . Just love the idea. It can be turned into a photo album for the Christmas celebrations. Papers and dies are so beautiful. Great inspiration. Thank you
Tuesday 8th of August 2017 04:28 PM
Thank you for your tutorial. The directions look easy to follow. What a beautiful album. Now if only I had the beautiful papers to do this project with.

Anita makes it look so easy, but yet elegant, love it just love it, I'm going to have to try this once I order my festive holiday stamps and dies..

Wow!!! That looks very do-able. I'm going to try it. I just bought a whole set in Lancaster,PA of the fairies. I forgot to get my free pad of paper. We spent way over $100! I bought the woodsy wonderland die too ~ So.... Cute!!!! Thank you so much for your inspirations. Mary Lou
