welcome to the first day of homemade for the holidays! i am so excited to be sharing my love of homemade gift giving!
today, lets talk albums...a gift for generations to come. i don't know about you, but i love to document. My usual method of documenting is through my camera and later, some of those photos become part of scrapbook pages or albums. each christmas i create a christmas album, separate from my day to day scrapbooking.
yes! christmas is that special it deserves more then just a page or two in a scrapbook album in my opinion ;)
in previous years, i have other received christmas album kits through past design teams or just randomly grabbed supplies from my stash as i created the pages.
there are so many great options for christmas albums and no matter what you choose, there's no wrong way...it's all about documenting your christmas, your way!
so let me share with you what i am doing this year!
there are so many pretty kits out there for purchase, cocoa daisy has a fabulous one! and in fact, it was their document december album that inspired me to create my own christmas alum kit! i have so many supplies collecting and i even had, on hand, the perfect mini album that allowed me so many options.
it is not as scary as it sounds, putting your own kit together. it took me about 20 minutes :) so let's have a look at what my christmas album kit looks like!
album and embellishments, i have no idea if i will use everything i pulled...but it gives me a good and varied start. some of these things i have had for a long, long while...note the 7 gypsies stickers!
i really loved the poinsetta paper flowers i rediscovered in my stash! another great reason to go through your stuff and make your own kit...the rediscovery of items long forgotten about!
and since i am doing this 12 days with the beautiful ronda, you can find her own version of an album on her blog today! she takes on an art journal approach and it's fabulous!
