In the past 24 hours I made 10 of these tags! Plus, I wrapped and boxed all the stuff that is shipping out to my family to go to the post office. I am a little late, so I don't think it will all arrive in time for Christmas morning. But Christmas is a week long celebration in my opinion, and anything that arrives after Christmas is just a bonus!

I modified the little memory book for my youngest neice, Elsa. Even thought the bigger books aren't exactly "delicate", I thought it would be easier for 6 year old hands to manipulate these pages on a jump ring, rather than trying to slide a book in and out of the cover. There are plenty of blank pages for her "artwork", and it can easily be added to as well.

I don't think anyone in my family ever looks at this, so it's probably pretty safe to post a few of the projects I am making for Christmas gifts here.
I have 6 nieces in grade school, so I made them each a little mini album to capture their memories from this school year. Inside are pages with titles like...This is me, My teachers, Some of my friends are, My favorite subjects, etc.
I figured it would be a fun way to keep a record of their handwriting, a few photos, and some of their thoughts about the school year.
I got the idea from the Stampin' Success magazine, and did very little alteration. They were sort of time consuming, but I started a couple of months ago and did most of the stamping and cutting. I took some time the last few days to assemble and print the inside pages. Now I just need to get them wrapped and in the mail in time for Christmas!

Some Christmas stuff I have been working on the past couple of months... None of these are original ideas, but it has been such a long time that I worked on them that I can't remember where I got the ideas from. The advent calendar is from a tutorial on splitcoaststampers, and most of the card layouts are from Kristina Werner's blog.
