Holiday Guide Blog Hop

A Special Christmas Gift
with the new 
Hip Pic Album
Welcome to our very first Holiday Gift Guide Blog Hop. 
If you have come from Georgia's Inkygeorgia Blog you are on the right path.
This very first Holiday Gift Guide comes loaded with special items just for the holidays. 
Be sure to take note that some of the items are "while supplies last" 
because you really don't want to miss your chance to order for the holidays.
The front cover of my Hip Pic album. 
This is a gift for my daughter with all the fun photos of her kids when 
they were little. Kind of a Mom"s brag book. I kept with the color scheme
 that comes in the kit: Creme Brulee, Lagoon, Outdoor Denim, Smoothie, and Kraft.
I was amazed at how the colors went with the photos no mater 
the colors in the photo. Very generic.
First page with inside cover.
I added some photo frames from the Cricut Artbooking cartridge
to coordinate with the photos.
The square photos frames are cut at 4.25 real dial size.
The longer photo frames that hold a 4 X 4 photo is cut at 5.5 real dial size
If you have more than 16 photos for your album you can add 
flip flaps from the small assortment package.
You can add colors behind the cut out sections of you  photo frame.
Flip flap opens to show more photos.
Use the kraft, creme brulee, and outdoor denim for a more masculine look.
Add a little smoothie for a girly look
Be sure to use your bonding memory glue pen to
 adhere those small chevrons and hearts.
If you use a photo frame that has a cut out in the corner you can 
cover the cut out section with a die cut. These photo frames are the same one 
but I covered the heart on the creme brulee frame with an outdoor denim die cut.
Last page with back cover.

I really like how you used the photo mats with this mini. It gives it a more polished, finished look. TFS that idea!
