Documenting Christmas - Note to Self Style | Nancy Damiano

Hey there Felicity Jane fans, Nancy here today with more pages in my Note to Self book of lists. Let's celebrate the start of the happiest time of the year by focusing on all of the things we love most about home and the holidays. 

While we travel and enjoy many fun activities during the Christmas season, my favorite memories center around our home and every day life. This list is all about t most wonderful time of year and what I want to remember.

On the right, an enlarged photo of my Christmas slippers and a peek at my new pajamas. I buy a new set for Christmas each year and rock them all year long - it's tradition! While the photo is the main focus, I added a layer of texture right on top with an alpha chipboard from the London Kit. Stacking the alpha at the top with a smaller die cut subtitle and a red scalloped border underlines the words and adds a pop of color. The enamel dot in the center is the something "different" that makes the design interesting.

On the left, we have a beautiful patterned insert from the Joy Kit that gives the background a punch of bold design. The horizontal strip of photos ties the entire spread together. These are detail shots of some of our traditional and favorite holiday things. Special ornaments, dishes, wrapping paper, videos, or cookies could be documented here. A few chipboard, enamel and die cut embellishments from the Joy kit give the page some much needed movement.

The words! This is the most important element in a book of lists. This was an easy one to come up with. I just closed my eyes and though - Christmas! The bulleted list was created in Pages on my Mac. The red starbursts are a standard choice in the program and match perfect with theme of this page. I used the stamp from the Joy Kit to add a nice, script title to the top of the page in red ink. This breaks up all of the text and adds some color.

And that completes this month's list in my Note to Self book. I am so happy with how this project is coming along. A book chock full of memories, photos + words - what could be better!

Love this! I was wondering what paper you are using as the base page? Is it a dotted graph A5 insert paper?
