This week I want to share my latest project with you. I was looking through the blogs in November and came upon this great idea in two blogs that I read often by Ali Edwards and Katie the Scrapbook Lady. The idea was to create an album with photos & journaling on a page for each day in December. Both ladies suggested getting all your supplies together, some new, some old, collected from all your other left over past December projects. Next create a page for each day in December, so that when each day comes, you can jot down a thought or two and take a photo. Then when you print out your photos, you just have to stick them on their page and viola!, you’ve got a finished album to remember one of the most memorable months of the year!
Well, OK, that is an awesome idea. And I had every intention of following it to a T….I gathered my old supplies and of course found some new ones at the store. I checked out all sorts of holiday layout ideas. I cut little number tags on the Cricut. And then December came along…..
You’ll notice that I haven’t had a chance to attach some cute ribbon and put the number tags on each page…but they are coming soon! I also plan to add a few fun embellishments to some of my pages. I’ll take photos of all the pages again, once the project is finished & share them with you! (Oh…and I do know that Christmas is spelled incorrectly on Page 1 of my album! So strange to have a manufacturer spell a word that important incorrectly, we are supposed to receive a new shipment of this paper at the store soon!)
I did shoot a photo each day, well, most days! Some days I shot an extra photo, something that was important to me in December, a centerpiece, some special ornaments, so that when I forgot…as I knew I would…to shoot a photo on a given day, I’d still have one to put on that day’s page.
I began my album in November, but I was only able to get 5 pages done before the rush of December began! Then I was caught up in all the decorating, special festivities, party planning, wrapping & Christmas pageant practices. Once the excitement died down, between Christmas & New Year’s, I was able to complete a few more pages and have the photos printed out.
So I thought I’d share what I’ve been able to create so far. I hope these photos can inspire you to create some projects to honor your memories of this holiday season!
Happy New Year!
