I’ve been December Daily-ing my brains out… ! Each year these Christmas memories suck me in and I love making an album of it all! This is the first part of it because it took me so long to take pictures of it all I am going to post half now and half later. I might be missing the point with not doing it every day but this is what works for me, putting pages together on the weekend or a few days at a time.
I’ve really had too much fun & making my printer do a lot of the work! I printed photos on patterned paper, vellum, journaling on glassine envelopes & my favorite is a photo on a freaking doily! I was pretty excited about that one… mostly because I didn’t ruin my printer. lol But I am hoping to share some video tutorials this week but for now here are some photos.
I cut the calendar and used the bottom half for a pocket for the inside of the first page. Next punched some squares added patterned paper behind and some fun embellies. I am using this pocket for notes, tags, papers the girls have drawn on that I want to include later in my book.
I printed Avery’s photo on vellum and it measures 6″ x 9.” I wanted her letter to Santa to show through from next page. I cut the edge of the vellum photo with pinking shears so the edge looked more finished.
“Dear Santa, This is Avery. I would like a pink puppy.”
