Raining Cats & Dogs Christmas Mini Album

By Magda Cortez


“Hi.. what a wonderful time.. I love Christmas.. I love Santa and all the festivities! So this time I’m going to share with you a Mini Album I made for a friend.. Also I did a little video where you can see all the flaps and pockets of the book and more pictures of the album.

I chose the NEW Raining Cats and Dogs – Deluxe Collector’s Edition papers and the St Nicholas.. They are perfect combination believe it or not!


I did this album from scratch it is 8” x 6” I think is a good size.


I try to keep it simple but with lots of fussy cutting.. You know me.. I love to fussy cut!


This mini album has a lot of pockets and flaps.. With a lot of opportunities to add our Christmas photos.


With this album, I also used the Solids and Patterns from St. Nicholas paper collection.


Tip: If we have magnets we can use another as I did with this card.. That way I save one magnet!



Tip: Don’t be afraid to use different collections because with Graphic 45 you will never going to go wrong.. They always have the perfect color combinations.. I love that!


I fussy cut the leaves from St. Nicholas and the little cats and dogs aren't they cute?


Raining Cats & Dogs and Christmas. I love my mini album and I hope you like it too..

Merry Christmas or Happy Holidays from me to all of you!
