Snowday Survival Guide

When I received my DT kit this month I wondered what I might do for an 'off the page' project. I decided on a mini album documenting all the fun things my boys love to do on snowy days. I gathered up my bits and pieces left after creating the layouts as well as a few things from my own stash.

I used wooden accents throughout the book like these ones from Maya Road and Pink Paislee. The album itself is from Basic Grey.

The lily bee letters were the perfect size to use on the tabs.
I printed out little strips for each page as 'tips' on how to enjoy yourself.
I was even able to use some of my favourite pics from the little bit of snow we've had this year.
I printed them out at home in the perfect size for this wee album.

The written words on this paper are all about winter and I cut this well known saying out of one of the journal cards and punched a few hearts.

Each page follows a similar design with small variations in embellishments.

These mitts are also from Pink Paislee.

I added some ink, stickles and some pink paper behind the hearts.

This final page doesn't have any pictures but I'm thinking I will add one or two of us drinking hot chocolate!

The back page just has a sticker with some snowmen on it.

I used ribbons,yarn and twine to tie around the metal rings.

I haven't made very many mini albums but I really enjoyed this one so I think I will definitely create more of them!
