It was quite fitting that it was snowing as I uploaded pics for this post since the album is about December & Christmas. Also, I am wearing a beanie since I am a baby about the cold.
December Daily, holiday albums & anything to document the magical traditions of Christmas time is time well spent. That’s why I dug up this album I started last year and finished the majority of it last week for the Two Peas Garden.
For the base of the album I used an SC Handbook the same size as my Dear Lizzy mini album.
This album has a few different techniques that I enjoyed in the process:
Printing a photo on patterned paper. (I have done this the past couple years for my album.)
Diecut a quote of favorite song and scripture for a full page using my Silhouette.
Layering on pages from holiday catalogs.
Sewing pieces of vellum to the front of page protectors.
Loving the wood tiles and cards from Two Peas!!
I used my Silhouette to diecut a song lyric and scripture pages then sewed them to the page protector. (Following the seam of the page protector as I stitched them together.) Seeing through to the next page is one of my favorite things to add to the design of mini albums.
