Get inspired by this beautiful Christmas Album | Guest Designer Marijke van der Heiden

It’s always heart warming to see what crafters can come up with with our Printable Crafting Graphics.

Marijke van der Heiden, a member of our Design Team has made this beautiful Christmas Album using a bunch of our printable Christmas sheets. She posted a complete walkthrough on her YouTube Channel.

As a wonderful surprise, a few days after posting this album was dropped of on my doorstep by the mailman. Talk about a Christmas surprise, thank you, Marijke!

This album now has a prominent place in the VectoriaDesigns studio and I couldn’t resist making some photo’s of this stunning album.

Get a cup of your favorite tea or coffee, grab a seat and enjoy!


The album is a nice and sturdy big album with a stunning cover that opens with a metal clasp. Notice the snowy lamppost on the cover, I love it all the more since it was recycled from a broken Christmas village house.

For the stunning sides that keep the whole album together Marijke used black tape with a beautiful leather pattern


You can get a metal clasp used for closing like this one here. Instead of using nails or screws, simple brads have been used to attach it to the paper. Genius!


On top you get a glimpse of all the goodies that are waiting inside.


The album has several pages and tabs with many (and sometimes secret) possibilities of adding photo’s, memorabilia and other personal touches.


It’s a joy to wander through this album and get inspired.


Here you can see the full walkthrough of the book:


Enjoy and happy Holidays for everyone!
