A St. Nicholas album & Card
The holiday inspiration continues today with a St. Nicholas album and card from Clare Charvill and Nico Scrap! What a fun week of projects on the blog! First, let's see this wonderful album from Clare. What a perfect project to keep your holiday photos in!
"I’m really excited to be sharing my 2016 Christmas Album with you today. As a G45er you’ll know how much detail Diane and her team pack into the stunning paper collections Graphic 45 release for us to be creative. With beautiful papers, coordinating cut outs and embellishments, we’re always spoilt for choice when it comes to making our projects. The papers always work their magic and allow us to create beautiful projects. The St Nicholas collection is packed full of fabulously traditional papers and imagery for your seasonal craft making.
Having browsed through the 12 x 12 St Nicholas pad I started creating the page designs by taking out one sheet of each paper and moving them about together to get a flow of colours I was happy with, and then matched in cut-aparts, borders and patterns and solids to create the final mix for each page. St Nick sets the scene on my album cover. He was the just the perfect size for my album. The album has a box cover, four double sided interactive pages, large pull out mats and a photo book at the back, creating oodles of space to add your festive photos and create a beautiful Christmas keepsake. There’s a PDF Tutorial to go with the album available from my website and full video of the album via the link below:

"The perfect present start with the best card, and so i decided to make a special card for a special friend using my favourite christmas collection “Saint Nicholas”. Of course the papers match perfectly with these Petaloo flowers and a vintage christmas image. Have you started making your Christmas cards?" ~Nico Scrap
