Gingerbread House Mini Album Blog Hop ~ Lots of Pics!!

Hi blog hoppers! Wasn't Nora Anne's project beautiful?!!!   (If you didn't arrive here from the Creative Cuts and More/DieCut Divas Blog, you don't want to miss what our whole DT and Guests have in store for you! The Creative Cuts and More Gingerbread Album Blog Hop starts HERE.
Even though we were originally going to start Thursday, November 10th, we just couldn't wait any longer to  show you this cute Gingerbread House Mini Album.. Well, some of us anyway, there may be a few that wait until  7AM Central to post theirs, and you will be able to complete the HOP at that time

Now here's how I decorated my Gingerbread House Album Chipboard Kit
The papers I chose are mostly from...
Simple Stories ~ Generations Collection and Destinations Collection (I found this paper at the CKC in San Marcos in Sept.. and I love this paper)
My Mind's Eye ~ Lost & Found Collection
Bo-Bunny
Embellishments are just odds and ends I found around my Scrap Studio..

I hope you enjoy looking at this as much as I enjoyed putting it together!!!
This is the cover...  The snow on the roof  is actually cotton with stickles..  On this page.. the house, icicles and little gingerbread man are from the Kit...


The large gingerbread man is from the Kit..





Both of the little gingerbread men are from the Kit...











The house and icicles are part of the kit..








This is one of my favorite pages...  Here I have 2 little gingerbread men glued back to back...  They are also from the Kit...
























The house, icicles and candy canes are from the chipboard kit...



Hope you enjoyed it!!!

I also had the privilege of making an album using the Gingerbread House Album Ultimate Deluxe Kit.
Talk about YUMMY!!!!
Here's the cover...  You can see the whole album in detail here.


You have to check this kit out!!  Terry has combined everything imaginable in this Ultimate Deluxe Kit...

I even went online and found these cute recipe cards that are perfect for this album.. And did I mention they are FREE... 

After I completed the album I decided to use some of the left overs from the kit to make a layout with a photo from last year of my little GD Savannah decorating her Gingerbread House.

Here's the layout I created...
Here's what I used from the kit ~ the large gingerbread man, small gingerbread man, large mixing bowl with spoon, which I added the candy cane over the handle, gingerbread man border strip, and peppermint candy stickers as centers around the border.

And now I want to show you what I have left over after making the Gingerbread House Mini Album and the above layout.....  You won't believe it!!!!

This is what I had left over from the
Gingerbread House Album Deluxe Kit..  While I was working on the mini album I did not throw anything away, as you can see!! 


Here's what I had left over from the Embellishment Kit..


And here's what I had left over from the Die Cut Assortment kit..

Can you believe that?  You could easily add extra pages to your mini album with the Gingerbread House Chipboard Mini Album Kit and decorate the pages with the leftovers.   Or if you want to do a couple of different size albums.. Just purchase the others in chipboard and use the left overs to decorate..  The possibilities are endless..
