Welcome to the DCWV & Clear Scraps Blog Hop~

For the next four days DCWV & Clear Scraps are joining together to show how fabulous their products are together.

I got to work with DCWV’s Jolly Whimsy Stack and a Clear Scraps 8×8 Regular Acrylic Album.

I have to start with how much I love this stack!

As in love, love, love it.

I love the colors, the prints and the especially the adorable images like Santa and his reindeer.

They make me super excited for the upcoming Christmas season.

I will also tell you this is the first time I’ve worked with a Clear Scraps album.

So, while making this mini album I had to balance wanting to use every last little bit of this stack with my desire to keep the album relatively clear.

My album~

Santa-1

Santa-2

Santa-3

Santa-4

Santa-5

Santa-6

I think I did okay. He he.

Putting this together was similar to putting a puzzle together, since what I placed on one side showed through on the other.

But, I just love how sturdy this album is and I think the peek-a-boo page makes it all worth while.

A few close-ups~

Santa-Close-1

Santa-Close-2

Santa-Close-3

Santa-Close-4

Santa-Close-5

Santa-Close-6

What also surprises me with this mini album is just how much my kids have changed and matured in one year.

How did that happen?

  1. Heidi took the words right out of my mouth – SUPER CUTE photos and mini Sara – I can see why you love this stack so much!!! The papers are such pretty colours and have fun designs with a gorgeous shimmer of gold 🙂 LOVE the pretty ribbons and FABULOUS page designs, along with your cute and clever peek-a-boo … I have never seen these clear albums before and can see why you had so much FUN creating it, it is a real family treasure now 🙂
    THANK YOU for the inspiration and the chance to win!!!

  2. I love minis and your mini on acrylics is fabulous! It’s so hard to design 2 pages at a time but your pages are so insiring! Mahalo for sharing.

  3. I think you did more than OKAY, Sara…..this is one awesome acrylic album!!! Love this stack, and the way you layered it all through the pages yet kept the see-through aspect. And adorable photos! I will be lifting your ideas for sure! Thanks for sharing!

  4. What a cute mini album! Love this stack too! Such cute paper to use! What a great way to remember your christmas photos of the kids! Thanks for sharing!

  5. Sara, what a beautiful mini album. I like how you changed out the embellishments to give a couple pages a different look. It is like putting a puzzle together. You add layer upon layer and you have a thing of beauty.

  6. Love this delightful mini!! Each page is so fun and cute. Love all the layered circles and frames you used. Thank you for the chance to win one of these stacks!

  7. This looks like a fun project to work on. Your kids are adorable.
    Thanks for the heads up about what is on one side gets seen on the opposite side too.

    And for the Saturday links too.

  8. This sure doesn’t look like the 1st time you have done a clear album before and the colors just pop off the pages from page to page. The Santa and reindeer are just adorable. Such wonderful memories you and your family will always have to reminisce of family time together.

  9. The mini album is so cute! I agree, time flies in photos of children, even just within a year! Excited to do this blog hop and thank you also, for your own giveaway. Very nice of you 🙂

  11. I saw most of this album in person and it was amazing to watch the work you put into creating it 🙂 It turned out wonderful! (are those circles perfectly lined up or what???)

  12. I love the whole album. The see-through page is great. All of the added dimension with circles cut out. wonderful job. thanks for sharing. I’d love to have this Christmas paper stack. It is great.
