BONUS PROJECT – Candy Cane Lane Paperbag Mini Album (12 Days Of Christmas Series)

12 Days of Christmas BONUS Project

I couldn’t make this series without creating a mini album! So here we are with a bonus project and I hope it doesn’t disappoint.

The tutorial I filmed for the album is just over an hour long, so it goes into every detail you’ll need to re-create it. These are perfect for recording your Christmas or giving away as a gift.

If you are looking for the perfect weekend project, then here you are!

Hostess Code Club – do you like free gifts?

All orders over £25 (before shipping & handling) & using this month’s Hostess Code at checkout will receive a Hostess Gift from me. If your order is over £150, please do not use this code – you can claim your own Stampin’ Rewards.
All online orders under £150 will collect Stampin’ Rewards (free product) throughout the month. Your order is processed as normal, with it being delivered to your house as usual, so nothing changes there. But, at the end of the month, I close off the code and work out how many people have placed orders and divide the total Stampin’ Rewards between them all, making sure that everyone has exactly the same products.

However, the more people who join the code, the higher the rewards go because everyone is pulling together towards a common goal!

This month’s code can be found at the top right of this page or on the home page

  1. I have thoroughly enjoyed viewing your videos. I have made two of the paperbag mini albums>. I wanted to share pics with you but am not sure how to do it. One are expecting a new grandchild and it turned out so darling. Let me know if you would like to see the pictures. I can send by email. Again, thanks so much for your fantastic videos.
