December Album - Days 7-13 | Jen SchowDec 15, 2015
How is your December going? Amazingly, I'm keeping up with my album this year and I think it's because I'm using a kit - and a cute one at that! Today I want to share days 7-13 with you. I have a few (kind of a lot) photos of some of my favorite little bits + tips and a video that will walk you through the rest. :)
I found my daughter looking through my album and reading every word. It kind of melted my heart. I put the title right on top of the large photo and I love doing that. Those awesome red resin letters are from last years December kit. Sorry to tempt you!
I added a bit of flair to the dark wood alphabet from the Cozy kit with a white gel pen.
I took that same gel pen and wrote directly on my photo. No fear, people. Just do it!
A printed one of my photos on vellum and I love the way all of the pretty papers and stamping peek out from behind it.
I never throw away my Felicity Jane packaging. It's perfect for little gifts and...mini albums! I stamped the word "believe" with red StazOn ink and tucked a special little note for my daughter inside.
Don't be afraid to keep it simple. A title on the photo, a printed card from the cut apart sheet and a bit of journaling is all I needed for day 11.
Sometimes I like to insert random pages and photos. The tabs from the cut apart sticker sheet are the perfect little addition to those pages.
The tab started out black and white, but I added red ink for a pop of color and then glued my typed journaling on the back of the photo.
Last, but not least, I made a little shaker pocket for day 13. I love how you can just throw a bunch of stuff in and not worry about it.
Wow. That was a lot of photos! If you want to see even more details and hear a bit about the stories that go with these pages, you can watch the video below. Thanks for stopping by!
