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!
The last project I created for the My Mind’s Eye CHA booth this year was a mini album featuring their new Record It – Just Splendid collection. The colors and wood elements (Um, … Hello! WOOD Dots! Eeeeek!) of this set just make me smile. It would be a perfect set to record practically anything! I used it to record our 2013 Summer Vacation to Missouri and Illinois. Here’s a look through the book. (Hey! That rhymed! Hehe!)
I kept the overall design of the album fairly simple to go along with the clean lines of the Record It line. The pictures themselves are quite busy, so this seemed to work out really well!
I used my Silhouette Cameo, the 6×6 paper pad from the collection, and cardstock scraps from my stash, to create decorative page dividers. The decorative tapes were perfect for adding colorful borders. I even used the tapes on the page protectors themselves.
I love all the words on the blue decorative tape. I snipped them apart and used them throughout the album to accent photos.
Tickets to vacation attractions, make great page accents!
I had a couple of maps and brochures that were too large to fit on the pages. I took them to my local copy store and had them reduce them to fit on the page.
I really love these 6×8 scrapbooks! They are the perfect size to hold vacation memories all together. It was such a fun trip and makes me excited for spending time with my family on vacations in the coming year.
