December Daily Album Cover for GIS

Hi everyone,

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.

A bit of a catch up

Hi everyone,

I can hardly believe it is December already.  I think probably lots of people feel like this though.  Well in our household the Christmas tree went up yesterday.  It was one day early but we had more time on Sunday to do it together than squished Monday after school and work.  Today I have a catch up post for Get It Scrapped.  I made this layout for the article about Storytelling when Setting is Key

We had taken a trip up to Mount Clarence before Anzac Day to spend some time with the kids to teach them more about the history and what Anzac Day means.  The views are amazing from up there and since I had taken a photograph of the views I used the photograph as inspiration to create a ‘scene’ background for my page.  Remember it doesn’t have to be perfect to still help tell your story.  You can see other ideas over at the Get It Scrapped Blog

I also have another page to share that was created for Get It Scrapped that was using a Sketch/Template.  I loved this sketch and the page came together really quickly.  I tweaked the sketch a bit to work with my photos and the story of my page.  Get It Scrapped has heaps of sketches and templates now and adding more all the time.  You can see the template that was the inspiration for this page here.
