Last Year's December Daily Album

As I am starting to put together this year's album I have gone back to have a look at last years. I really enjoyed looking at it and reading about what we did. We had a big family holiday in Lapland last year and of course this is featured as well as the other smaller things. The album was entirely created using scraps and it was the first time I had printed off 6 x 12 photos which I loved and think look fab in the album. Let me know what you think.

The front cover was made using thick cardboard covered with Basic Grey Jack Frost paper. On top of that I added some snowflakes jazzed up with Stickles and the date was made using American Craft Thickers.

On quite a few of the pages I cut up trading card protectors, filled them with small photos and sewed all of it together with red cotton.

This photo was taken without the flash, hence the red colour, but I really think it works. I opened it in Photoshop to add the text which reads 'Believe in the magic of Christmas'.

Another full page 6 x 12 photo. The text was added in Photoshop before printing.

This page was kept very simple by printing off 1"square pictures as a collage. The hearts were some old heart rims which I filled with scraps of paper.

This page is just a normal sized envelope with a photo covering the front and a piece of Doodlebug paper on the reverse.

I made this envelope and added an insert with a further photo and journaling.

Love this photo! When I took it I deliberately left some blank space for journaling which reads 'Walking in a winter wonderland'.

A simple page for Christmas Eve.
