St. Nick mini book

I know, I know, it's not even Halloween yet! Thing is, Christmas falls upon us so fast, so we papercrafters need to get busy early on so that you have lots of ideas for the holidays. :)

This is a mini book that I just finished for Paper Mermaids. The paper is from the Fancy Pants Designs "St. Nick" collection; a blend of nostalgia and nonconventional Christmas colors (i.e., light blue and grey).

For the cover, I embossed a piece of cardstock with a Sizzix Texture Fades folder, then cut out some Christmas stockings and "hung" them above the fireplace-cardstock using fun red and white floss. I then cut a strip of paper and applied two kinds of ribbon across, then finished the page with some chipboard.

Here's a look at the other pages:
