I began my album by making two-page spreads from patterned paper and journaling cards.
Then I created the title page. I absolutely love this reindeer print!
While we were out Christmas shopping recently, I took a family picture. I included this photo on the opening spread of my album.
The first few spreads are dedicated to Christmas decorations around my house. I have done some journaling, but I will be adding more as the month goes along.
This spread documents our first Christmas shopping trip this year. I have purposely left some sections of the page protectors with only patterned paper because I just love the prints! This mouse pattern was my second favorite paper (after the reindeer) in the collection.
The next pages tell about our trip to a local parade. My daughter was on one of the floats, so we went to watch. (I must admit that it is ironic that much of this patterned paper has a snow theme, considering we are experiencing the warmest December in years. It was 70F yesterday!)
I have also added some extra pages in the album, like this one, that are envelopes and full-size photos to add extra interest to the project.
And that is my album so far! I have been having so much fun using my kit, Very Merry, to create my project. I will post again on my blog when I have the entire album finished.
Happy rest of December!
