My December Album and Transparencies

I have been working on putting together my December Daily Album. I am using a 6 x 6 American Craft Modern Album. I bought this earlier on in the year for this very purpose - nothing like being organised!

I love the way that Ali Edwards has used transparencies between every page and wanted to do this as well, but as I'm on a stash diet I decided to print some of my own. I've also used other transparencies that I had.

I created these transparencies on my computer and printed them out on transparency paper that you can get at WHSmiths, Staples etc.

I found these stars on Clip Art and put them into a Word document, lined them up and viola!

Another transparency using Clip Art snowflakes. This is quite a delicate pattern so will need a darker background to really bring out the colour. I may bling this up a bit with Stickles at a later date.

For this transparency I used Word again and typed in a variety of Christmas words, for about three lines. I changed the font of each word and just copied them down until I had enough to fill the page. I'm planning to do a similar one using red numbers.

I am sure this Christmas will be busier than usual so I plan to copy Ali's design fairly closely. I designed this page layout which is very similar to the one Ali is using. I again used Word and inserted a table, tinkered around with it a bit and am quite pleased with the result.

I would love to know what you think.

I think we have had the same thoughts! I have spent the day printing my diary pages which i made on word, very similar to Ali's and am now in the process of printing all of my transparancies. I have to say it is going really well. will hopefully find time to blog it but a busy weekend ahead :)
