Twas the night before Christmas waterfall album

I have another waterfall folio album to share with you today. It's a new style for me and I had so much fun putting it together. I am on a mission to use up all my older Christmas paper packs before I start buying more!
This album is using an older Graphic 45 paper line - "Twas the night before Christmas".
I have lots of pictures to share to sit back and enjoy!

This is the front cover - measures 8.5 x 11 and the spine is 3/4" x 11". It has a magnetic closure.

I used a decorative filigree from Butterbee Scraps and added the red gemstone to the center for some bling.

 I did not add too many embellishments to the front cover as the pattern paper is busy enough.
This is a picture of the album when opened. This album will hold up to 43 pictures!
 Starting with the left side of the opened album, the photo mats open vertically.
 I kept the embellishments to a minimum to prevent bulkiness and I wanted to make sure it would stay shut with the magnetic closure.

 Chipboard and cardstock tags and stickers were only adhered on one side, The reason for this is to be able to slide a full size picture behind the chipboard tag.
 The largest photo mat can hold a 5x7 picture!

 You can't see it in the pictures, but I added red stickles to all the holly berries.
Here is the right side where the mats are horizontal:

I found this style album on Arlene Cuevas' blog. Here's the link to her Snapguide tutorial.

That is it for me. Time for me to get outside to enjoy the beautiful weather we are having in Chicagoland!
