I finally finished our December (not quite daily) 2014 album in the middle of May. It didn’t actually take a lot of work, but I had too many things in front of it to finish. Without further ado, here are photos of all the pages, if you’d like to see, and a little more info at the end.
As you can see, I kept it very simple and repeated the same techniques over and over. My process went like this:
1. Choose and order photos, place them in the pockets.
2. Type up journaling (I did this in Photoshop Elements), cut it out and place in pockets.
3. Place any ephemera or found papers.
4. Go from beginning to end adding patterned paper, labels & handwritten journaling, and embellishments.
I really love storing these December albums with our Christmas decorations and looking through them each holiday season. It’s so special and that’s why I know I will try to keep doing them. This year I hope to be more prepared in advance and possibly work on it as I go.
Happy Christmas in May! ;)
share and enjoy!
