2015 Cookie Exchange Album

This album is the same format as previous post on 12/11/2015 Disney Memories Mini Album. As previously mentioned, instructions for this album can be purchased from Cristi Maron in her Etsy shop found here.  Her blog site is called Paper Hoarder Disorder found here. Her assembly video on You Tube is easy to follow and very informative with lots of tips and tricks of assembly. There are lots of photos of this 6 page album - lots of pages that flip up, flip out, open here, open there, pull out here, pull out there.  The library pockets are slightly wider in this album than the original.  All  pages and embellishments have been lightly sponged using brown ink.  Due to the long list of supplies used and amount of photos on this post, details will be listed at the end of this post.
The glitter cover paper used was so pretty, a simple embellishment title made using the Silhouette.
Spine decoration:
Overhead view:
Inside front cover: Gingerbread edge punch for the pocket and a removable booklet.
Page 1: Spoon embellishment on the side pocket with a removable booklet complimenting the glitter cups paper used for the mat. The cup on the booklet is white glitter paper.  This is the perfect introduction for this event as we always have some appetizer and beverages prior to the cookie exchange.
Page 2: Flip page with the words: enjoy cut using the Silhouette
Flip up the page to reveal:
Page 3: Pocket Tag
Each of the three pocket tags have a pull out tag with a Gingerbread
Flip over the pocket tag to reveal a page with a pocket and removable booklet. Note the flipped pocket tag also has a small pocket - it the holly paper.
Page 4: Love the mixer holding a removable booklet with a whisk.  Whisk and mixer bowl are cut using metallic paper. The Kraft card stock mat of the mixer was cut three time to make it more sturdy.
Page 5: This is the gate fold page.  Kraft card stock mat here for the words: baking Memories was cut three times to make it more sturdy. It is a magnetic closure.
Open the gate fold to reveal:

Page 11: Third Pocket Tag
Flip open the pocket tag: Note the pocket tag has a smaller pocket (red dot paper on pocket tag), too for any small notes.
Page 12 Back page: a Cookie Jar holds a couple booklets.  Kraft card stock mat on the cookie jar was cut three times using the Silhouette to make it more sturdy.
 Removed booklets are simply decorated:
 See the Gingerbread tabs peeking out from each of the pockets here?
 Gingerbread photo mats in each pocket page: Punch them twice, one for the front side and one for the back side to make them  more sturdy.
