Continuing on with the Holiday Tags, here's another group.   I chose the 'Holiday Hoopla' kit by Snickerdoodle Designs because these little elves are just too darn cute!  You can find that kit HERE.

I followed the same directions in the video by Kathy Clement.  You can find that video HERE.  As before, I made my tags smaller by using the ATC size Alphabet Banners by Graphic 45.
I chose my elements for cutting out from the kit and printed a sheet.

I also printed a sheet of polka dots to use in backgrounds behind the Elves.

Here's all the pieces cut out and ready for assembly.

Here's the back side.

     For the base of these cards I used Alphabet Banners - ATC size cards by Graphic 45.  Kathy Clement has a video using the larger sizes.  You can find that HERE.

     This is the front.  I used St. Nicholas paper collection from Graphic 45.  If you would like the smaller measurements just leave your email in the comment section below.

This is the back.

I cut out all the parts and elements first.  Then burnished all the edges with 'Gathered Twigs' Distress Ink by Tim Holtz.

     This 'Mini Album' measures 4" x  4" with a 2" spine.  I used the tutorial series by Ginger at 'My Sisters Scrapper' to make the album.  I altered the size.  You can find that HERE

     For the backgrounds and elements I used 'Highlands' kit by Snickerdoodle Designs.  You can find that HERE.  The templates for the background were 4" x 4".  Then cut down to fit pages.  The pages measure 3 1/2" x 3 7/8".

                            Sheet of page layouts and tags for the inside pocket of album.

     Tags are on the inside of front cover.  A place for a photo and a journal page that opens out.

     More pages that open out and lots of photo mats.  The mats measure 3 1/4" x 3 1/4" and the template for the photos themselves measures 3" x  3".

                                                              And here's the back.

     I used the BIGZ XL die from Sizzix.   Apron Box  was designed by Lori Whitlock for Sizzix. It measures 5" H x 4 1/4" W x  2 1/4" D.  It is filled with recipe cards that are 4" x  6". 
     The small roses are made with the 5 pedaled flower punch by 'ek' and glued onto end of paper clip.  

     Close up of chicken.  Touched up with fine glitter from Martha Steward.  Pattern is from a kit by Cheryl Seslar called 'Country Cluckers'.  You can find it HERE.  Grass is a die from Impression Obsession called 'Grass'.

                                                                  And here's the back.
