Anyway, I hope you'll also like the December Memories mini album pages that I'm sharing today. Since it's T-Day, I'll start with a beverage-related page.
|Supplies: patterned papers from Simple Stories; stickers from Lily Bee; Candi dots from Craftwork; pen form Zig; household stapler.|
Before we go much further, I want to say a bit about the album itself. I'm just using a regular "brag book" style photo album (brand unknown) that I received as a Christmas gift. I originally intended to decorate the cover of the album, but once all the photo/memorabilia sleeves were full, this is what happened...
Since the album no longer closes properly, I don't see much point in decorating the cover. Instead, during the weeks of Advent and Christmas, when I'll be using the album as a home decor piece, I'll simply display the album open to a random page.
|Supplies: background papers from Fancy Pants; fussy-cut papers from Basic Grey; label sticker from October Afternoon; alphabet stickers from Lily Bee; decorative sticker from Doodlebug Design.|
On one day, perhaps I'll leave the album open to the pages shown above. These pages display my friends' signatures, which I have cut out from Christmas cards. It's impractical to keep every single Christmas card (sadly), but it's nice to see all the names collected here.
|Supplies: "Polaroid" paper from Pebbles; all other papers from Fancy Pants; alphabet stickers from Lily Bee; decorative sticker from Basic Grey; pen from Zig; household stapler; photo collage created at walgreens.com.|
On another day, perhaps I'll leave the book open to these pages, which document some romantic holiday moments between my husband and me.
If you'd like to see more posts with pages from this album, you can find them here, here (toward the end of the post), and here. I haven't blogged about all fifty album pages (again, impractical), but these posts comprise a representative selection of my December Memories pages. Thanks for letting me share this project with you. It has been fun! With this album now complete, I'm hoping to work on completing a few more in-progress mini albums soon.
