Wow, I bet you thought that I had forgotten or abandoned the old blog huh ! Sorry about that. I will slowly be making my way back here to share with you over the next couple of months. December will mostly or might be all about December Daily.
Today I wanted to share some pages from my DD 2014 album. I created them for a Simple Stories assignment and I only have 2 more days to finish up and then it's done. I don't know why some years are harder to finish than others. Oh well.
Supplies are Simple Stories Claus & Co. The album is also Simple Stores 6x8 kraft and red.
Here is a look at Day 23.
Noah loves to take baths in my tub. So I said yes to his never ending requests and we had a great conversation while I folded laundry next door. I added in my favorite quote on the bottom card.
This next page or shall I say pages are all about our Elf Harry.
The right side is a 2x2 pocket page protector that I cut off the last 2 rows. I added in smaller photos, filler cards and a few see thru pockets.
Last year Harry got into a lot of trouble and had lots of fun while he was visiting our home. I wanted to document some of this because the kids sure do love Harry and seeing what he has been up to each night.
I blew up a picture of Harry about to get run over by the train. I cut it up and added to two pockets. I stapled the word believe onto the page protector with my Tim Holtz tiny attacher. Love that thing. That way it can be on both of the pictures.
The other side has more photos of Harry and more filler cards.
The next page I used one of the SN@P Journaling Pages and hand wrote what Harry had done for each day. I also added a few fun things here and there.
On the back of the Harry page I added a flip up picture. I really wanted to have a fun interactive page so I created this flip up.
This page was all about us making Santa cookies. I want to point out the red Dec 24 card. Simple Stories has a set of cards with numbers 1 - 25 on them which are so cool for December Daily. Another thing I love are the chipboard stickers. I used the two stickers all about cookies. Couldn't have been more perfect.
The flip up page was real easy. I printed out my picture, then cut the patterned paper it was going on the same width. I measured it with a ruler and then used the ruler to fold it down so I could add the photo ontop. I should have taken a photo of it, next time I will.
Here is what the inside looks like. Simple but done. Sometimes that is all you need.
That is it for me today. I only 2 more pages to finish up for my 2014 album. I have started 2015 and if my printer would stop running out of ink I could get some of that done too. ( It is time for a new printer ) I will share when I have some pages done.
Until then. I hope you all are having a wonderful Holiday season so far.
