Clear Scraps Upside Down Tree Album

Hi, got my internet fixed! Yippee! I was snowed in this weekend and more snow on Wed. so, it got me in the mood to finish my Upside Down Christmas Tree Album. When I saw this Clear Scraps album I knew if would be perfect for my photos. This album comes with a combination of clear acrylic pages (which I love) ;o) and chipboard pages. I added a few more to the book:


The front cover is an acrylic snowflake shape. Hard to see I may have to darken it a little more with the staz on ink.


I took the tree of the album and turned it upside down as well as all the trees in this album.


I added the bells at the edge, it just makes the book.


The page on the right is an acrylic piece which I added the prima flower, crystals and black stickles around the ornaments.


I used Martha Stewart punch to create the trees.



I would like to do this page over and make a wreath and make the photos smaller and add berries and a bow on the wreath. Do you think that will ever happen? LOLIMG_4699


These are the ornaments that hung from my chandelier.


Here is my favorite drink, chocolate martini! Gee, I wonder why my cheeks are so red….. do you think it has something to do with the 2 martini’s I had? ;o)


Here how my tree looked at night and my handmade flower. My favorite part of the album is adding all the ribbons.

Thanks so much for stopping by I really appreciate all your visits and sweet comments! Hugz, Z

    Now I would place that right next to my fatbook so I could look at it over and over and over again! How did you think of this? Was it a challenge or something or did you just say "I'm going to create a book about upside down Christmas trees" ??
