Good morning, Mandy here with you to share more December Kit inspiration with all of you, using the Very Merry December Kit. It's the middle of the month and this kit has me still going strong. This will be the first year in awhile that I will finally have a finished book on December 31st. How is your album coming along? I hope you're having fun however you are documenting your December and if by chance you are in a rut or feeling stuck I think you'll find some inspiration in today's post as I share more pages from Mou, Jill, and my Very Merry December albums.
The first pages I'm sharing with you this week are from December 10th. I've included a flyer from Victoria Secret along with my shopping receipt. I used my cameo to cut the glitter paper(not included in the kit). The right side is a one of the 2x2 pocket page protectors which is great for documenting our Elves daily shenanigans. There are 12 pockets on front and back perfect for the 24 days leading up to Christmas when the Elves return to the North Pole. As the month goes on I remove the October Afternoon 2x2 papers and replace with the Elves photos. On the Right I cut down a larger page protector to 4.5x 6 for this photo from Gpa's Birthday lunch date. The back of the photo of Gpa's Birthday lunch has a personal note so I'm skipping pages. I've finally started Christmas shopping this past week so of course it had to be documented. I also had a dinner/shopping date with my lil sis Jessie. We always have to take some goofy photos when together so I made those photos into a photo strip in photoshop. I cut down another page protector just for the photo strip then added the glitter heart cut with the cameo and the tab. The left page in this photo is our Charlie Brown tree with a digital brush added to it. The right is another page protector cut down for a 4x6 photo. The photo has another digi stamp with journaling done in photoshop. I attached one of the cute tabs from the Very Merry Kit with my tiny attacher.To cover up the tiny attacher staples I just adhered another tab on the back of the other tab. Keeping it pretty aimple as you can see.
Next up is Jill.
Here is what Jill had to say about her pages this week: "This album has been invaluable in helping me to capture "freeze frame" moments as the days of December fly by me. To ensure that I can keep up with the album, I've tried to keep my process fluid and my page design flexible. At times, the layouts are photo-heavy, but at others, the journaling is featured more prominently. The Very Merry December kit is full of fun bits and pieces that make compiling this album a real treat!"
Last but not least at Mou's pages.
Mou says: "Having fun recording the little details of December. I'm including receipts, cards, gift notes, ribbons, etc. in the pockets too. I used one of the glassine bags from the kit to hold small mementos and attached the bag to the page."
Thanks so much for joining us today, I hope you are having a merry December too!
