Today I'd like to share another one of my December album pages with you using the gorgeous Holly kit! December 7th was pretty special for us as our daughter turned 9 months that day, so I wanted to be sure to include it in my album. As a side note, I decided to document this story on day 9 instead of day 7 so the numbers wouldn't get confusing. I choose to tell a story for each day in my album, whether it happened on that particular day or not.
On the right side of my spread I decided to keep things really simple by putting a 6x8 photo into a full size pocket. On the left side I used one of the circle cardstock dividers as a fun way to incorporate more photos into my layout. If you'd like to see another way I've used these cardstock dividers, you can see my star page here. I sized my photos and patterned papers to 3x3 inches and adhered them to the back side of my divider using regular tape. You can see what the back side looks like in the photo below. It's definitely not glamorous, but that's okay because I'm going to layer a piece of patterned paper on top of it so no one will ever even see those little scraps. Once I had my photos and papers filling up the holes I got busy embellishing. When adding embellishments I love keeping some things inside the circles and having other pieces come off the side.
I needed a small area for my journaling so I repurposed some Felicity Jane packaging (which is always so cute with the scallop edge!) and made it into a tag. On the front side I used the flap for my title and then pasted my printed journaling underneath.
On the back side I adhered a Holly "Joy" tag, but before doing that I wrapped some string around it with some jingle balls attached. The ends of the string are tucked behind the tag so it won't come loose and the jingle bells won't move too much. I absolutely love the little jingle sound my album makes now!
Below is a look at how all of these pieces look inside my album.
Thank you for letting me share these pages with you. I hope you are having a lovely December and enjoying some crafty time along with all the Holiday festivities!
