Happy, Happy Christmas Blog Hop

Welcome to the Happy, Happy Christmas
 Blog Hop! 

For this hop I am following {Melissa Robinson's Blog.}   We have 10 Close to My Heart Consultants participating in the Happy, Happy Christmas Blog Hop. If you lose your place while traveling through our blog hop, the complete list of participants can be found here.      

So, what are we featuring in this blog hop?  We are featuring the Happy, Happy Christmas November Promotion.  We took the already fantastic promotion and added our twist to it.

The Happy, Happy Christmas Campaign features a workshop designed to help you have a happy, happy Christmas! We have made this workshop to help you create not only a beautiful Christmas album, just in time for the holiday season, but also to give you the materials to create four additional items that would make beautiful holiday gifts! It’s like getting five amazing projects all in one workshop!

During November, save over 10% off the retail value when you purchase one of the 12″ × 12″ album bundles (CC1179 and CC1180) for only $69.95 each! This bundle includes an exclusive guide to walk you through the steps of assembling five beautiful 2-page layouts. Add on additional items to make additional projects with your leftover materials, too!

I decided to take the original workshop and first add some additional mats.  I am all about extra layers!  These layouts use the My Crush Happy, Happy Christmas pages and the Picture My Life Happy, Happy Christmas cards.  You get everything you need to make these layouts plus a gorgeous album!

Original Layout

Here is my project. See the added mats?  I think it adds a little dimension.

I added Flip Flaps.  LOVE THEM!  Then I added some of the extra Picture My Life cards, My Crush papers, and complements.

Here is the left page with the Flip Flaps open.

And the right side of the layout.

After I added Flip Flaps to all of my pages, I could place 33 photos on my 5 page layout.  That will be plenty of room for all of my Christmas pictures.

Thank you for visiting my blog.  I would love for you to show me a little love by leaving me a comment and then please go to our next artist, {Gina Brandstetter's Blog} and see what she has made with this adorable stamp set.
