Documenting My December Album Pt. 3
Over the weekend, I started adding photos, created a fun snow filled pocket and attached some baubles to the jump rings of my album. This album is coming together nicely and I’m having so much creative fun, no deadlines, no specific requirements just fun!
I decided the top jump ring of my album needed a little sprucing up so I dug in my Christmas stash and added several holiday themed items, a vintage bell ornament, gold & silver jingle bells and a white snowflake transparency. Each item is attached with holiday trims in colors of red and green.
And in this family no Christmas is complete unless you have a photo taken with Santa a.k.a. Paw Paw. This is my dad’s 11th year as Santa at Parkdale Mall in Beaumont, Texas. He truly is the BEST Santa. There are families that have made sure to come to his shift for all 11 years. How awesome is it to have your child’s photo with the same Santa their entire childhood.
I had so much fun creating this clear pocket for my Document December album. I filled the pocket with items I already had in my stash… Maya Road White Transparency Snowflakes, Jenni Bowlin Classic Assortment Sequins and Stampendous Shaved Ice. The pocket is created from a clear sheet protector. I’ve had a stack in my closet for YEARS just waiting for this very project, at least this is what I’m telling my family because I have the hardest time getting rid of things as I know I will use it someday.
To make your snow filled pocket, cut two pieces from a clear sheet protector to 4″ x 6″. Using a sewing machine stitch a simple straight stitch all around three sides, fill the pocket with the items you chose and stitch the pocket closed. I used a Crop-a-Dile to punch two holes on the left side then placed it in my album. I love how it looks!
