Mandy's December Album Days 21 - 23

Merry Christmas!!!
Do you love a shaker pocket?
I love a bit of bling in them for sure!
DAY 21
This is the reverse to day 20, and the long strip down the middle became a shaker using quite large gold sequins (put a 'sequins' in a search in the shop and look at all the options- some lovelies there)
The paper used for this is the reverse side used for day 20 as well
Sleighbells Ring 'Noel' paper  (also found in the Sleighbells Ring Kit)

 And cut to size to fit the pockets

I absolutely adore these Crazy Cat stamps!
They suit my very shy scaredy cat and his antics to avoid anything and everything at all cost!
Stamp the image onto the paper, and using a brush with a dab of water onto your mixed media mat, brush it over Tim Holtz Black Soot Distress Ink, and place the tip into the dab of water...colour to the darkness of black (or other colour) you might like, then use that to paint your image.

Here it is finished and putting only half a piece of matching Ranger Coredinations  Forest Moss cardstock (don't be fooled by the colour in the shop..its quite green in real life) through
 with the 'Pine Branch' die, it created a hidey place for this cat too
Finished off with some embellishments from 'Candy Cane Lane Decorative Buttons' to make a little banner
and some of the fabulous 'Joyous' alpha from the green sheet in the packet
 (there's 6 other colour sheets too)
DAY 22
Another handmade page.  It doesn't take long to put these together
(there's eight different coloured sheets in the pack)

The background paper is the reverse side of  Sleighbells Ring 'Red Reindeer' Paper
 (also found in the Sleighbells Ring Kit)

The 'Black Soot' cardstock is glued to the back of the patterned paper.  This will become the next page for the 23rd once flipped over.
The   Ranger Coredinations  Forest Moss cardstock is torn and glued kind of like a side pocket wtih the photo slid somewhat into it.  This gives us a plain base to do something fun.
Especially for this 'Bare Christmas Tree' Die.  It has an array of little bits to put with the tree,
but I stuck with the little bows and cut quite a few along with the 'present box' which I turned into a container for the tree to stand up in!  Just needs a little ink :) 
The cardstock is my favourite - Tim Holtz Coredinations - Fired Brick and Pumice Stone (which is slightly more light olive than grey as shown in the product pic in shop)
Here it is decked out with its little bows.

 DAY 23
A 'cooking' day where each little picture says something especially when its became a tradition
And its a pretty straight forward easy page
With the use of Sleighbells Ring Washi tape that makes it look like each little photo is stuck up on a wall.  The number '23' is from a great red alpha font sheet 'Let's Party'  and the little alpha is from another fabulous sticker sheet 'Echo Park Season's Greetings'
 Getting very close now!!

Who's excited!
