Stampin' Up! Snow Swirled, Tree Trimmings, Dasher and Contempo Christmas create a Vintage Star Album

Hi Guys, I should warn you all now, this is going to be a picture heavy post.... I have created a Christmas mini star album for an international holidays swap... luckily, I only had to make one!
So, this is the front, I used a piece of backing card you get when you order a pack of designer series papers. The album size is 4 inches square. I have covered the backing card using the Newsprint DSP, and inked the edges using Crumbcake. I stamped Dasher is Soft Suede on Very Vanilla, and mounted it on Suede. I added a rhinestone for his nose. The ribbon is non-Stampin' Up! and is almost a perfect match for Cherry Cobbler.
This is just to show you a different angle, the pages are Cherry Cobbler, followed by Soft Suede and Very Vanilla... Now the insides:
I sponged all the Vanilla pieces with Crumbcake, and purposefully left some of the pages blank, so my swap sister can insert photos, or journalling.
 
Other pages, like these ones, I filled with a Christmas quote or picture that I thought was really nice

 
This page, (below) is  probably my favourite...
 
 
Sorry about my fingers in these, the pages wouldn't sit open by themselves... 
 
 
I used only 5 stamp sets and 4 colours to create this entire album, Dasher, Snow Swirled, Contempo Christmas, Tree Trimmings and a Hero Arts stamp I don't remember the name of... The colours are Soft Suede, Crumbcake, Cherry Cobbler and Very Vanilla. Here is a look at the album open, with all the pages showing.
Thanks for stopping by!
Happy Stamping
