I absolutely adore the new Creative Memories Christmas Past scrapbooking collection and can't wait to get this year's Christmas photos in my Christmas Past Fast2Fab album. Unfortunately I will have to wait until after Christmas! In the mean time, here are two dressed up Christmas Past Fast2Fab layouts that I hope will inspire you to dress up your own F2F pages.




Here's what you'll need to complete both layouts:

Christmas Past Fast2Fab Predesigned Album

Note: You'll have some residual adhesive on your work table after using the repositionable tape on your border - simply brush it away.
  2. Using the 12-Inch or Personal Trimmer, cut one 2" x 4" rectangle from green dot paper and one 1 3/4" x 3 3/4" rectangle from red dot paper.

  2. Use the 12-Inch Trimmer to trim evergreen tag shown from tags and mats paper. Cut a 2 3/8" x 4 3/8" rectangle from green pattern paper to mat evergreen tag.  Use black pen to create faux stitching around edge of tag as shown. Adhere Tis the Season sticker to tag and adhere matted tag to border as shown. Use Foam Squares to adhere evergreen sticker to tag and corner sticker to the upper left corner of the left page.

Before my dad passed away in 2010 his favorite Father's Day gifts from me were the photo albums I created for him. Sometimes I would create a digital scrapbook album and at other times I would use a small pocket page album. I don't think he really cared what type of album I created, what was most important to him were the pictures in the album. I think he would have liked the mini scrapbook album I've created for today's blog hop - filled with pictures of course!



Ingredients:
Here are the general instructions for creating my mini scrapbook album:
  1. Using the 12-Inch Trimmer cut twelve 4 1/2" x 7" rectangles from brown cardstock.

Yay!! In the mean time,  I'm going to share a layout with you that I created using the Watercolor Love paper pack and embellishments.



I have a growing collection of my grandchildren's engagement photos that I absolutely love. Some will be framed and displayed in my home and the rest will go into an album. After seeing this collection it occurred to me that I should use it to create an album just for engagement photos. Today's layout will help get me started on that album. I love the way the Watercolor Love line complements my photos! Here's my layout for today and, as always, it comes with instructions.




Supplies:

White 12 x 12 pages and protectors
Black ABC/123 Stickers
Tape runner, Mini tape runner and foam squares
Border Maker with Heart Chain and Filmstrip cartridges
12-inch Straight Trimmer

Instructions:

  • Using the 12 inch trimmer, cut two 3" x 12" strips and one 1 1/8" x 12" strip from dot pattern paper. Cut one 3" x 12" strip from beige chevron paper, leaving you with one     9" x 12" sheet.
  • Adhere 3" x 12" dot pattern strips to the bottom edge of two white refill pages as shown. Using the Border Maker and the heart chain cartridge, create a heart chain border from wine cardstock. Use scissors to cut the border in half lengthwise. With the mini tape runner, run a bead of adhesive next to top edge of strips on both pages as shown. Adhere your half borders to the top edge of the dot pattern paper as shown in photo.
  • Adhere the 3" x 12" beige chevron strip to the top edge of the left page. Adhere the 9" x 12" sheet to the right page so that the bottom edge covers the excess border as shown.
  • Adhere three vertical 4" x 12" photos to the left page as shown. Trim two 4" x 6" horizontal photos to 3 3/4" x 6 inches. Adhere to right page as shown. Trim one 4" x 6" vertical photo to 4 1/4" x 6 inches and adhere to right page as shown.
  • Use the film strip cartridge and black cardstock to create two film strip borders. Using the 12 inch trimmer, cut two 1 1/4" x 12" strips from the reverse side of the dot pattern paper. Adhere strips to the film strip borders as shown.
  • Adhere one film strip border to the right page as shown. From the second film strip border cut one 3 3/4" border with a "V" cut from one end. Adhere to bottom of left page as shown. Cut the remaining border to about 7 inches with a "V" cut from both ends. Adhere to top of left page as shown.
  • Using 12 inch trimmer, cut beige cardstock to 4" x 3 3/4" and cut a shallow "V" on one end. Use to journal your story and adhere to right page as shown.

    I am seriously on a border roll here! When I saw the stickers and shapes that coordinate with A Year to Remember papers one of the first things I thought about was borders. So today I'm going to share 3 borders created with the Year to Remember collection.  Then I'll also share some ideas for using borders with the calendar grid pages. 
     
    Supplies List - here's what you need to create today's projects:
     
    Here are the borders I created with the fun Year to Remember collection.

I know that you are not going to want to miss a chance to win this collection! Just remember to leave a comment on the CM Blog and tell us what your favorite thing about the Year to Remember collection is.

    3. Center the inside track of the small circle pattern over the square green chevron sticker and cut with the green blade.  Leave the backing in place and adhere snowflake sticker to chevron sticker.
    4. Cut a 3/4 x 4 1/2 inch rectangle from green chevron paper. Pinch ends together and snip at an angle to form a "V" on both ends. Adhere January tag to flag as shown. Adhere tag and flag to white circle with foam squares. Use foam squares to adhere arrow and snowflake circle. Adhere your embellished circle to your border strip.
    Here's how I used my January Border on a two-page layout:
