The covers are chipboard covered with card stock; the pages are card stock. I've used most Tim's stamps but there are some from Wendy's collection in there, too. I won't go into page-by-page detail but throughout the pages I used embossing folders, plenty of alcohol, distress and archival inks. Glossy Accents was essential for adhering many of the elements and also created the tear at the bottom of page 4. Fragments, computer parts, and old watch face, Maya Road trinkets, Tim's embellishments, Sizzix dies, holiday tissue tape, tickets and buttons help complete the pages. On the last page it's very difficult (even IRL) to see that 'Merry Christmas' is stamped in gold.

The ornate plate on the front has Wendy's 'art' stamped in it. I filled the opening with sepia glossy accents before adding a few smears of juniper paint dabber to make the plate look much older than it really is.
So, if you have a Cinch (or any bookbinding tool) and haven't used it yet or in a long time, pull it out and PLAY! As you can see, it was a cinch to create this gallery of images! I'm thinking holiday gifts, birthday presents, etc.
Blogger has its own idea on how to add pictures and it's NOT user friendly. Don't know how I stumbled on getting them to line up like this but I'll take it for now! LOL
