These ribbons put the jolly in Holly Jolly! The retro vibe was perfect for some October Afternoon Christmas papers that I’ve had hoarded away for quite some time.

    What a wonderful remembrance of Christmas. It has the retro look yet the colors are so fabulously updated especially with the beautiful colors of the ribbons. This will be fun to look at each year when it is pulled out. How fantastic.

    This is the most wonderful album I’ve seen. The retro look is my favorite and you really took it to the top it makes me smile tfs

    It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas! Kathy, this album is delightful! The ribbon looks fantastic, but it’s those vintage Christamas papers that have my heart! So retro, and sweet additions you have included, like the Christmas tree on the cover, the tinsel wreath, the tiny stockings, and the rusty star make this so special. Love it!

    It’s certainly beginning to look a lot like Christmas and I can’t think of a more wonderful creation than this gorgeous album to start the countdown! Wow! Wow!! Wow!!! Every page is a beauty, Kathy! I don’t know how you do it, but I’m thankful you do. Well done!!!

    You are such an over-achiever! In a good way! hee hee I love this, every bit of it. It reminds me of my childhood Christmases in the late 1960’s and early 1970’s. The images are the same as those used on Christmas cards and those cardboard decor items we used to hang in the windows! I remember getting some HUGE images of Santa and Company to hang in the windows one year, to decorate for my brother, who was coming home from Vietnam. We plastered the yard with signs and lights, including a handmade sign that spelled out WELCOME HOME in Christmas lights! We had a huge, fat Santa cut-out for the front door. His arms were hinged so you could pose him…..ahhh memories! Thanks for the walk down memory lane this morning!

    Those ribbons are so cute! I love the traditional Christmas red and green. Your little album is bright, cheery and packed full of cute ephemera. Lots of pockets and special places to tuck this and that. Really cute, Kathy.

  10. Janet Saieva

    WOW, WOW, WOW!!!!! This album is absolutely gorgeous. So glad you kept the inside simple lol. Obviously, your idea of simple and my idea of simple are nothing alike. How long did it take to make this amazing album?

  11. jenscull
