One of my favorite products that we released in our Deck the Halls Collection was our Holiday Mini Album (GN536). The album contains: 2 printed chipboard covers 6.5” high x 6.25” wide, 12 double sided printed 6”x6”pages, 1 vellum page, 2 vellum envelope pages, 1 envelope with a string closure, and 2 metal jump rings.
We received this stunning project from Dee Walker, owner of The Scrappy Gourmet. Dee frequently uses our Melissa Frances product line in the kits she and her contributing artists design and sell on her website. This album project was one of the kits she offered in December. Sadly (but happily for Dee!) the kit is now sold out, however her sample still provides awesome inspiration. So, pour a cup of coffee or tea and pull up a chair, you'll want to spend some time checking this one out! (Be sure to scroll down to the end of this post to see 2 interior spreads).
Here once again, is a peek at some of the empty pages from the Mini Album, which is still in stock here, on our site.
And, a few last peek at some interior pages of Dee's album:

Melissa Frances design team member Emeline Seet has a gorgeous Christmas layout to share with us today. I love the idea of taking your favorite photo from the family Christmas celebration and making a commemorative page like this one.
Thanks for the inspiration Emeline!
Now that the Christmas celebration is over and done for another year, many of us will be looking for ideas for scrapbooking the photos we took. This excellent layout comes to us from Jill Cornell.
Be sure to check back tomorrow for another layout idea from Design Team member Emeline Seet.
I don't know about you, but just because Dec. 25th has passed on the calendar doesn't mean that I am ready to turn off the Christmas music and stop holiday crafting. So, we will continue to share holiday projects here on the Melissa Frances blog until the end of December. So enjoy these inspiring projects as we drink up every little bit of holiday goodness that we can!
Today's project comes to us from Melissa Frances design team member Evgenia Petzer. She used our Deck the Halls Collection to decorate a sweet shadowbox project.
Here is a closer look at a few of the details - I especially love how our White Mica adds sparkle and sheen around the border of one of our die cuts.
These Christmas projects from Melissa Frances design team member Anne Kristin convey our heartiest wishes for a Merry Christmas to you and yours. (Please click on photos to see larger images as the details here are so pretty!)
Tomorrow is the big day. Are you ready? If you still need to make a few last minute cards, here are some sweet offerings from Elizabeth Terrazas. She used our Deck the Halls patterned papers in combination with lace/ribbon and some great stamped sentiments.
Today we have a fun wall-hanging project from Melissa Frances to share with you. She used our Scalloped rectangle Backdrop (GN322) as the backing of the project. (Please note that on our website, the backdrops are sold in bulk packaging, so the price you see is for 12 pieces - it works out to about $0.42 each!) First she painted the border of the backdrop, then she covered the center portion of it with our Here we Come a Caroling (PA375) patterned paper. Then Melissa used our adorable Super Mini Envelopes & Tags (GN427) as the focal points. She decorated each one with a combination of vintage photos or ephemera and the following products: Bag of Mini Trees (WB018), Round Romantic Pearl Brooch (BR005), Super Stars Resin Accents (CX832), she made tiny roses with our White & Cream Crepe Paper (GN381), Sculpture Applique Set (CX706). Finally, she hung the wall-hanging using the Old Fashioned Rope Tinsel (WB001).
As we close out this week, we at Melissa Frances would like to wish each of you a lovely Christmas with your friends and loved ones. May the celebrations of this holiday season bring light and joy to your life and home.
