It's Kelly Goree and I'm so excited to be back sharing my December Documented album (that actually is documented - at least for the first few days) using the gorgeous December Documented line and SN@P! Christmas sets. Wow, that's a lot of documenting, but I am determined that THIS year, I'm going to make it through all 31 days! And as of this moment, I AM CAUGHT UP!!!
I'm feeling very accomplished with this and I couldn't have done it - or at least not as easily - without the help of the SN@P 6x8 binder & inserts!
I canNOT say enough good things about this album kit. I have done (okay, attempted) one of these albums for the past four years, used all types of albums including making one of my own, and this by far is my favorite! It is truly the perfect size and spine width and it is making this process so much easier!
I posted the intro portion of my album earlier (you can see it HERE) but I did want to re-share the cover that I blinged up a bit:
One of my favorite parts of this album is the bookplate on the spine. I adore the braket shape and used one of the Mixed Brads (#3107) tucked into it to create my title plate. It was super easy and it looks so cute!
The left page on this spread is one of the SN@P! Pages (#3524). They are the perfect extra pages to make your album come together so easily! The right page is one of the divided page protectors that come with the album. I added another one of the brads (The "Be Merry" tag) and accented it with a number sticker from the Expressions Cardstock Stickers (#3503). I am trying to carry out the theme of using the same stickers throughout the album to mark the page days to make it a little more uniform. And on a side note - I can't believe how bit my boys have gotten. I swear it happened over night!
The left page of this spread is the backside of the divided page protector with a few Fundamental Cardstock Stickers (#3502). I love these stickers for making quick and easy accents. The right side of the page is simply a sheet of vellum over my main photo. I printed my journaling on the vellum and embossed it to give it some added texture. I used the alphbets that came in the SN@P! Christmas sets and then added a bit of glitter glue for some sparkle!
The back of the vellum is just plain and the photo on the right becomes the base of another page.
I covered the back of my tree photo with a sheet of red snowflake paper (#3517) and then used some scraps of December Documented for the accents. I love repurposing scraps and making them work for a current project! I used another divided page projector on the right side and even created a few of my own 3x4 cards for the pockets. I have no problem creating cards that fit my specific needs even if it means I cut up another pre-designed card in the process! Remember - this is YOUR album - create it to make you happy! I used both some of the chipboard (#3528) and more of the brads on the right side along with the Fundamental Stickers and the SN@P! Christmas sets! Mixing and matching is so fun! I swear I could create like this all day long!
And the best part? Not only am I caught up like I mentioned before, but I'm in love with this little album and I'm looking forward to updating it daily!
