Santa Photo Wallet

This was so much fun! This is the first photo wallet I've done and I prepared the project for Monday night's stamp club. I have to first say thank you to craftsrlb I CASED this project from her Gallery. Thank you so much!

SO. . . here it is.

The album holds 4, 3X5 pictures with places for journaling. When closed it looks like Santa's coat (complete with belt). The belt is black textured cardstock and the buckle is textured cardstock cut with two different square punches and embossed silver.

I know this picture is hard to see, my apologies. I'll see what I can do in the next couple of days to get a better pictures (and the dimensions for reproducing this project). The top says "Merry Christmas" and is layered and attached to cover the back of the brads that are Santa's buttons. The middle white section I used to break up the monotony and have a pretty artwork section. There are four black sections that fold out to reveal pictures and journaling (see below). I currently don't have pictures in mine yet, but you get the idea (I hope). I also alternated between stamped tags and ribbon on each photo section just to jazz it up a bit.

I really hope you like this project as much as I do. This is probably one of my all time favorites.

Once again - thanks to craftsrlb! And as always, thanks for looking.

This is so cute and creative. I don't think I could ever reproduce such a thing. Even if I cased it! Wish I could go to one of your stamp camps. Sounds soooo fun.
