*** Have you entered my Christmas Giveaway yet?! Be sure to leave a comment on THE POST BELOW by Sunday night to be entered! ***
I’m back again today to share with you the album pages I did for my 2014 album. For this album, I chose to go with a brighter color scheme, using the Project Life Merry & Bright Mini Kit cards as my inspiration.
I pulled in items I had in my stash that went along with this color scheme. A sheet of October Afternoon stickers, chipboard pieces by Studio Calico, gems, and even stickers from the Dollar Store.
I purchased an older October Afternoon Christmas album kit and sprinkled those cards in as well.
Some of my pictures aren’t that great … just pics from my phone, but they are still part of the memory making so they go in the album!
I love the smaller Jolee stickers as accents in this album … I think I used the entire sheet!
I rounded out a few areas with some stamped images.
It’s fun to capture all the games and hanging out together as a family on Christmas break.

I was even able to use up some older brads by My Mind’s Eye.
How is your Christmas album coming along? Do you work on it throughout December or are you like me and wait until after Christmas to get your pictures in your album?
Thanks for stopping by!
I know a lot of you out there are in the middle of creating your December Daily albums. I don’t create a daily record of our December, but I *do* put our December photos in a 6×8 album each year.
While working on my 2014 album, I realized that I never shared the pages I made for 2013. So, today I thought I would share my 2013 pages, and later this week I’ll share my 2014 pages.
I really like to use 6×8 pocket page protectors and pocket cards for my Christmas scrapping. For 2013, I used the Project Life Christmas Wish set. I LOVED that this set included die cuts along with the cards. It made embellishing my pages really EASY and FAST! Gotta love that!
I add strips of washi tape along photos where I need an extra color. I loved that a lot of the cards had silver foil on them. It made my album feel more special and shiny without any extra effort!
I mostly used the die cuts from the kit, but did add in buttons, enamel dots, gems, twine,and star stickers here-and-there.
I love working with these kits so much, that I picked myself up the “Deck the Halls” cards and die cuts at the American Crafts Warehouse Sale to use for my 2015 album … and guess what?! I picked up an extra set to give away to one of my readers!
Leave a comment on this post by midnight on Sunday, December 13th, 2015. I will randomly select one winner to receive the prize package shown above.
