Hello FJ fans,
It is here! The most exciting and magical advent time, album creating and a beautiful Bella kit! I cannot describe how super excited I am about my 6x8 dotted album (after the fiasco/drama and unfinished album last year).
I had so much fun creating the first pages about our first advent Sunday. Here in Central Europe it is a big deal to have an advent wreath and to light a candle every Sunday before Christmas (four Sundays, four candles). As for my album introduction page I went for an acetate foil divider from the Coco kit last year and a super big number 21. Gosh, these numbers are incredible! I love the font and I was pleasantly surprised how big and sturdy they are! I had this large photo of the burning candle that I wanted to use and hey, it fit unexpectedly well into that star cardstock divider from the Bella kit! Sometimes I feel like the FJ kits are just meant to be for my photos! I needed to add some sparkles to my star so I decorated it with the chipboard gold stars and I also went for some stitching. One wouldn't believe how much the stitching can add to your project!
I am still debating if I want to decorate the large photo as well or not.
And now the advent wreath. I fell in love with the journaling card picturing a wreath and I decided to copy the design! How lovely are the mistletoe branches! I traced half of my plate to create a semicircle and die cut the mistletoe branches from the solid colour paper alternating dark and light shade of green. I love the effect plus there is lots of new space for my story! Win win!
The back side of the wreath is perfect for a big title. I found these jumbo black letters in last year's Coco kit and used them to spell the word advent.
I hope you are having lovely advent time and you get some time for your festive creating with Bella. She is so beautiful!
Have a great week, everyone!
