My Creative Time's 12 DAYS OF CHRISTMAS ~DAY 4

Welcome to day four of the My Creative Time Blog Hop. If you came from Liz's blog, you are in the right place. I hope you are enjoying the hop as much as I am. I get so many idea's from my fellow DT members and of course Miss Emma herself! Isn't that what it's all about? I love my crafty community!!

For today's project, I thought outside of the box a little. I collected some coffee sleeves from my local coffee shop knowing I wanted to make a mini album with them. I used Emma's XL Label Die to cover the coffee sleeves using Stampin' Up Christmas paper. I glued the bottom portion of the sleeves to make pockets for journaling or more pictures. I used Emma's stamps throughout the mini. I think her stamps went perfect with them!
