Christmas Memories

Jean Sunderman’s Christmas memory book is a sweet treasure.  She incorporated her own childhood photos with lots of PWA products and fun embellishments.  I made the photos large so hopefully you can see all the little details!

For all of the pages Jean covered cds with Graphic 45 Christmas papers and distressed them with Ancient Photo Ink.  Holes were punched with a Crop-O-Dial.


For the cover Jean used a Shake It Circle pouch filled with Iridescent Bubble Beads over the photo of her with Santa.  Both products are available from Pennywise Arts.

For the next page  the photo was punched into a square and distressed.  The Santa's Workshop coupon and collage image (from PWA and Swingshift Designs Christmas Fun 2 sheet) were raised up with foam tape.

On the third cd Jean used photo corners and snowmen from the Snowmen 1 collage sheet.  The smaller snowman peeks out from behind an eye piece embellishment. A snowflake charm hangs over the edge.

On the last page Jean covered the frame using an O'So sticky Tape sheet and Ultra Fine clear micro beads.   The gingerbread man is cut from the Christmas Fun 2 collage sheet.

I love making meaningful gifts for friends and family at Christmastime.  When I imagine my handiwork being treasured by future generations it’s a good feeling.  When I imagine Jean creating this keepsake of her childhood for herself, that really makes my heart feel warm. 

Hugs, Suzanne
