yeeeeah, so when i said i start this project with a hiss and a roar i wasn't kidding!
that 'hiss and a roar' quickly turned into a 'pff and a whimper'
so without further ado, here is my averagely photographed [outside of the album']
Days 3 and 4
i decided listing every single product i used was going to seriously cut into my ACTUAL scrapbooking time, so i've nixed that.
suffice it to say, i'm using ali's main kit, pam garrison's mini kit, the paislee press mini kit i won,
3 of the 2015 mini kits (which i scored for $10 each - woohoo!)
even at USD10 they were still a bargain.
oh, and i've bought a few old studio calico kits and bits and pieces from them lately.
they have some pretty cool hearts and stars, and you KNOW you can never have enough hearts and stars!!!
i love using different sized tags in my albums.
i love the added interest and texture they provide.
i WILL say one thing about this white card i embellished though...
it had the words 'DECEMBER FAVORITES' written on it, and i continue to be a little frustrated by buying product (albeit in kits) that i can't use.
down here at the bottom of the world, we like the "U".
we even use it in the word COLOUR.
anyway, i covered the words up with the 'hello twinkle' diecut then stamped the card, and I'm pretty happy with the way it turned out.
a pretty simple 'date/filler' page
loving the sticker word art that came with the main kit and LOVE that we got 2 sheets!
...and how the pages look in the album
i think it's important to include first and last names of everyone present.
you know, before the senior moments outweigh the present day ones :P
(they're on that manilla tag)
yes i was tempted to fill that white space on the left -
BUT I RESISTED!!!
less is more...
i was inspired from someone in the 'december daily' Facebook group and basically re-ordered some of my pages to include this 2x2 with photos from the day we decorated our tree.
did you know there are almost SIX THOUSAND people in that group?
that's a lot of inspiration. the photos are awesome for picking up ideas
man, that glittery white star was, well - VERY glittery.
super happy with the way it turned out.
so i have 3 of my 4 girls home for Christmas 2016, but it's not the same 3 girls i had at home for Christmas 2015. Katelin is back from the States and now Mikaela is living in London, so
SHE gets to go on the stick!
'roots and wings' is from the 'roots' story kit
(just in case you were wondering)
and the 3x4 card is from the hybrid digital kit which we got when we signed up for ali's class
(really must finish those lessons.....)
day 5 was relatively quick and i love the pink and lime 'tinge' of this page
and here's how those pages look in the album
all the 'word' squares are actually cut down from 3x4 cards
i honestly have SOOOOO many, i didn't feel bad cutting into them
5 down 26 to go!!!
