Each year at our national convention, Close to My Heart raises thousands of dollars for Operation Smile. As an extravaganza teacher, I was honored to be able to donate something for the silent auction, which is held on the last day of our festivities.
I’m happy to report that my December Daily altered mini album received a winning bid of $400!
I had so much fun making this album using new products from the upcoming Close to My Heart annual inspirations catalog, which you can purchase on my blog soon, or spend $50 in July and receive one free!
I used the My Crush book, Holiday Happenings to create the altered mini. I started by removing the spiral binding inside the book, and covering the front and inside covers.
I made loads of additional pages using everything from flip-flaps (above, left), to envelopes (above, right). If I could punch it, it went into the book!
I adore interactive pages, so I had to add some fold-outs and pockets.
I even managed to add a few of the CTMH treat bags as pocket pages! (red polka dot above, red chevron below)
