Stampin'Up! Welcome Christmas- scrap your memories

Helllooooooooooo. How are you doing with your preps for the big day? I have to say the deadline catches me out every year even when I do try to plan ahead, crazy but I am finally getting there, the gifts and cards for my downline are made, wrapped and will be in the post tomorrow a whole week earlier then last year(told you I was trying), my customer cards nearly all done emphasis on nearly. On a personal note no decs up, shopping for family and friends not finished and I still need a coat as we will be spending Christmas in Germany with family and Germany gets very cold around this time. If you bought a nice coat this year help me out please.
 I hope you are doing a bit better than me although I am sure you are just as busy. 
Today I am sharing with you something special as we look forward to Christmas. I have designed a sweet mini album that would be perfect to document your Christmas 2010, it can be your family traditions, it can document your home beautifully decorated for the season, your children's received gifts...anything really. And while I made quite a few albums to gift this year I will be keeping this one for myself , it is all mine LOL 

 Now you know by now that Welcome Christmas is my favourite Christmas set from this year Stampin'Up! catalogue. I have used it for all my personal card making this year. I love the nostalgic vintage feel that is so popular right now. And as it is on special right now, I decided to design this lovely album using the Cocoa Speciality papers available till the end of December.
Here's a few more photographs that shows a bit more of the way the album opens and the inside decorations.   Isn't it lovely? I am just in love with it. And I am particularly pleased with my open window front element, fun and very dimensional.
The colour scheme is soft and very warm, neutral shades of Crumb Cake and Soft Suede accented with Real Red for a full festive feel.
 Would you like to make one for your family or indeed for yourself ?  This is a project that would make a lovely gift for Christmas but it doesn't have to completed NOW or before the big day if you have to much on your plate right now. This kit will be lovely to have on hand to keep you occupied on Boxing day while the kids are playing with their new presents, or in the new Year once the madness has calmed down a bit. However please keep in mind that this kit is available for a limited time only so buy it before the end of December as those papers and ribbons won't be available after that.
I will not sell the instructions for this little beauty instead I will offer them for FREE with the purchase of  a Welcome Christmas bundle or a £40 order if you already have the set and papers.
