Phew, playing a bit of catch up here today and I have lots to share. I really cannot believe we are four days to Christmas, this month has flown by so fast! Its crazy! Sorry in advance for all the pics, its a photo heavy post.
I really wanted to use my Instax printer more this year, since I didn't add one photo last year even after buying the printer new expecting too. The page protectors I used are from the Project Life brand, the Instax sized filler cards were in a kit from Studio Calico that was designed by A Beautiful Mess last year.
This journaling card is from In A Creative Bubble, I scaled the size to fit the pocket.
I've been hoarding that number card from Studio Calico for a few years now, finally used it, so yay me!
A simple photo and text on the back about sending cards, and of course our card. I used my last Basic Grey white attacher on the card which is sad. I did cut some myself for the other card using a tab die from Hero Arts and a thin piece of transparency. It worked great so going forward I have that option.
Starbucks always makes it in my album some way. This year there's no red cup for me but I was able to use that cute felt clip that I bought on Etsy in my album anyway. Today was all about building gingerbread houses and the Starbucks Cafe was a huge hit for us.
I dressed up the outside of a Cosmo Cricket vellum bag with cards from Ali's main kit and layered one of Kelly Purkey's red letterpress numbers on top.
Inside the bag are photos and words from the day. The journaling card is from Sahlin Studio and I added my text to the back side as you will see below. The red and white paper clip is from my stash and I can't remember who made them, they're pretty old.
I always get at least one good shot of our tree in the album and today was the day. I backed the vellum bag with a card from the main kit. I really wanted to use this so it worked perfectly here. The other card is from Ali Makes Things and I thought the two sentiments worked well together.
I used a journaling card from In A Creative Bubble to add my text, I did make it bigger and the original design had hand drawn stars so I opted to delete that part and add in some gold glitter stars instead. I love the dimension it adds. The fa la la pieces was from Jasmine Jones mini kit I believe, or was it Ali's main, I can't remember.
The transparency this all sits on top of was one of the early purchase freebies that came from Ali, I love this one.
A simple day about my daughters stocking. I made our stockings before she was born and made sure to leave room on hers so she could add what interests her as she grows up. This years addition was a donut, love! The gold card is from Kelly Purkey's December kit as is the number.
I added in another circle page because my daughter brought home the most adorable wreath from school today, I had to get that in there somewhere so in it goes. Lots of text for this day since it was the last day of school for the holiday break.
I don't expect to share more before Christmas so I hope you all have a joyous and happy holiday!
