Merry & Bright: “simple covers”

Christine & I have created 4 different cover options for you using the Merry & Bright kit for a December Holiday Album.  We each used one chipboard sheet found in the store to create two different covers.   Christine’s albums are each 6 x 6.  I split my chipboard into a 6 x 8 album and a 4 x 6 album.  Today i am going to share with you the two “Simple covers.”  Each cover has an easy tutorial on how to create these fabulous mini’s.

Christine’s simple cover uses a leaf punch to make this gorgeous dimensional tree set against the fabulous white, red, & green back drop.  The back is just as pretty as the front.  Check out her tutorial here.

I used my 4 x 6 pieces to create this simple Noel album cover.  With just a bit of inks, you can age any tag to give it that vintage touch.  It can be a simple album with just 4 x 6 photos or a little more complex with pages, titles, etc.   The directions for creating this mini album is here.

Tomorrow we will be sharing our mixed media covers!
