Nutcracker Mini Album

A dear friend's daughter is dancing in the Nutcracker again this year and when I saw this Graphic 45 paper pack I knew I had to make her something. I thought I would use my Wizard of Oz kit instructions and see if I could make something from scratch.

The Graphic 45 paper pack I used:

I used chipboard for the cover and covered it with paper. I used pop dots to raise Clara.
Here is the inside cover and page 1
Page 1 opened
My thought is that everywhere you see a blank beige paper you can put photos or souveniers in that spot (there are lots of pockets)
with the flap open
The back of page one

Thats it!
 I hope she likes it!


  1. Absolutely stunning - how wonderful and what a fabulous gift:-) TFS

  2. My daughters are the lucky ones to get such a wonderful gift from a dear friend. This is just stunning beyond words. Thank you does not even come close to showing my appreciation for this wonderful gift.

  3. Wish I was as talented as the group of ladies I hang with. This is absolutely gorgeous!

  4. As someone who danced in the Nutcracker for 3 years (I was Fritz for 2) this gift is awesome. She will LOVE it. And if she doesn't send it to me and I'll dig my old pictures up and put them in. :)

  5. You did a fabulous job on this album! She will absolutely LOVE it!

  6. Gorgeous, Carrie! Do you have any idea how envious I am of your artistic ability? I'd never have thought to use the papers the way you did in this album! (Wanna do my recipe albums for Christmas? LOL!)

  7. Wow.. Beautiful job!

  8. its truly amazing how talented and creative you are. what a blessing you are to the people who care about you and are lucky enough to receive the things you craft
