Todays post shows the album cover I made for my December Album and for the Get It Scrappeds article on Scrapbook Ideas for creating December Daily Album Covers.
I altered a Kaisercraft 6×8 pocket page album by using a stencil, new Bo Bunny Glitter Paste and red Dina Wakely paint. I am love with this new glitter paste and it is great way to add glitter that isn’t going to come off. I used washi tape to mask the binding of the album and keep my stencil in place. The background I created was pretty festive looking so I kept my embellishments fairly simple and just titled the album Christmas. I will put a cover page inside the album that show the album is about holiday traditions we have and what we do in December rather than just about Christmas.
I normally document our December in pocket pages in my 12×12 album but this year I wanted a smaller size so the kids could easily write on the cards inside the album and handle it more easily than the larger 12×12 size. They each created a holiday album in the middle of the year when we went on holidays and the older two took their albums to school when they told news. They had fun creating the albums so I am hoping that that experience will help them be enthusiastic about adding to our family December album. Will let you know how it goes.
Thanks for stopping by and don’t forget to head over the Get It Scrapped Blog for more ideas.
