December Daily Album - Part 2

Hi there!

Here are the rest of my favourite pages in my December Daily Album. I'm pretty happy that I finished it before the end of January.

Like I mentioned in the last post, it was difficult to take photos of the pages.  The album is too full to lay flat and I glued the pages into the book. If I had thought ahead about it, I would have snapped photos before gluing the pages. Live and learn!

The paper bag album allowed me to create some pocket pages to add some extra journaling space and tags.  The cards with the gingerbread men has a long story written on the back and tucked into a pocket and allow the die cuts to stick out.

I loved the Shimelle Laine Christmas products! They were cute without being too cutesy. And it seemed to match well with all my older stash.

So that's my album.  If you have any questions on supplies, please ask. There were too many to list.

Thanks for looking!

December 2015 Album

Hi there!

Happy New Year! I hope you had a great holiday season. I took a blogging break in December that seemed to extend into January.  But, that doesn't mean I wasn't scrapping. ;)

For the third year in a row, I took part in Creative Scrapbooker Magazine's Instagram prompts for 2015 and made that my version of December Daily. In the previous years, I had used tags for my album, but this year, I wanted something new. I was looking through my stash, and came upon a bunch of white paper bags that came in a kit, probably circa 2004ish. So, I decided to use them up and make an old fashioned paper bag album. I couldn't remember how to do it, but I found a bunch of old Youtube videos to help me out and I came up with this album.


I used a 6x6 paper pad of Shimelle Laine's Christmas line for most of my pages and threw in some older supplies as well. Mini albums are a great way to use up bits and pieces of paper. I have only 5 full pages left of the paper pad and a few of the diecuts left. But, they will just go in my pizza box of Christmas stash to be used in future years.

I wasn't thinking when I made the book that it would be difficult to take photos. And I glued them in. So, the photos aren't great, but here are few of my pages:

This is an interactive card to be able to tell the story of my very naughty 18 year old son. ;)


I'll be back with more later in the week. I have a few more pages to put together, but my goal is to finish the album before January is over!

Thanks for looking!
