Documenting My December Album Pt. 3

Dec 17, 2013

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!

Adding baubles

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.

Santa

Kissing Santa

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.

Pocket filled with Snow

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!
