Christmas Star 2-in-1 Mini Album

Hello ladies! Here is my second DT inspiration project using the papers for Echo Park's This&That Christmas collection. My intention was to make an album using some canvas boards as front and back pages, but when I saw the KaserCraft Star Album at Paperlane, I decided to make my life easier and go with it. And I was happy with my choice because I really had fun creating this album, plus I came up with another usage of the pages, so I called this project 2-in-1 :).

The album looked something like this. Unfortunately I could not find the exact image on the KaiserCraft website, but you will get the idea.
First I painted the sides of each star with Martha Stewart Acrylic Craft Paints and then decorated them with the papers. I used the edge distress tool by Tim Holtz to ruffle the edges, which kind of looks as frost to me, so I really like how it turned out.

I added some Golden Stickles to the pages for a more festive look and left the pages blank waiting for the Christmas photos.

In the meantime I decided to put the pages in use as Christmas decoration:

2-in-1, I told you :).

Happy festive crafting!
