Slowly getting back into the routine after a wonderful mini trip. Holidays are in full swing, between addressing holiday cards and prepping for annual holiday party, hope to stay updated on December Daily album. Working on this album really brings me back to the old scrapbooking days. This was really my first love, working with paper goods and photos.
Above is the title page, here I found a reindeer template and scaled it down (really really little) and traced it on to some scrapbooking paper I previously had. I adhered it to a 5.5 x 8.5 page where I typed out 2014 - Eat, Drink and be Merry!
Here's a look at the first week:
I wanted to do a full spread for the first day of December. On the left side, I printed out a full picture of the trees from the mini trip to Savage River Lodge. On the right side, I printed out the Savage River Lodge sign and for the bottom, I split and put a photo then on the other side, I put "1" and wrote a little bit about the trip. I then inserted into Martha Stewart sheet protector with two pockets.
Day Two and Three
For Day Two, on the top pocket, I printed out a picture of the breakfast basket. Added a date stamp to a mailing label and adhered that to the picture
For Day Three, I cut up a baseball page protector to create a 2x2 pocket. On the upper left corner, I added a gold number 3 sticker (This can be found at any craft store, Michael's, AC Moore, etc). Upper right corner, I got a gift card from Starbucks and placed it into the pocket. This is a great way to get filler cards! Lower left corner, a simple photo from morning coffee. Lower right corner, I looked in my scrapbooking paper to find something festive then added a wooden star (got from AC Moore, similar here)
Day Four and Five
For Day Four, I left the number 3 sticker in the clear pocket and no backing. To the left, I took a picture of when I was at target in the holiday section aisle. I created a "polaroid" as a frame for the picture. Below the picture, I included a receipt and used a festive white and red stripped paper clip and put it on top of a Trader Joe's bag. I found some free polka dot printable and added a white textbox over it with a date stamp.
Day Five, on pinterest, there was this great "Making a List" printable. It was a great way to organize for gift giving. I added a little blurb under the picture.
I went with a full spread for Day Six. On the left side, created a 3x3 collage and inserted some of the photobooth pictures from the holiday party. I filled the non-picture boxes with a wooden reindeer (Found at Paper Source) For the gold stars on the upper right corner, punched some stars out of some gold paper that I previously owned. On the right side, in the top pocket, I inserted the holiday invitation. On the bottom, I took a picture of part of the backdrop and wrote a little bit about the party.
