So excited to be sharing the first of my completed December Memories 2013 pages with you. Most of my pages were pre-made ahead of time using the Gossamer Blue 2013 December Memories Kit. It was a breeze to assemble my pages today. I just reached for a few items from the kit, added some typewriter journaling, a few embellishments, did a little stitching, added date stamps and I was done. So happy I took the time to complete my base pages ahead of time. Okay, I know there is a ton of inspiration out there right now for DD albums so I'll keep my ramblings short.
I've added some inserts into my album. I just love looking at different sized inserts in an album. That means there's lot of good stories and photos to sift though. Here I used a 6 x 6 envelope pocket from Becky Higgins to keep in the very front of my album.Small Manila Tag, typing, gold stitching and a big ol' rhinestone from the GB kit. I love having the space in this album to add more dimensional items. In this pocket I'll add extra photos, collected items, random receipts or anything that just doesn't quite find a spot in the album. The holiday misfits, you might say.
Marie's blog simply for her DD album. They are total masterpieces and just awesome eye candy. The free calendar download link is here. You can see how Marie used it on her Day 3 page here. Thank you Marie for sharing the fun addition!
Grid Paper Labels are perfect for adding in typed journaling to the top of a journaling card that has square photos on them. You'll notice that our first fire of the season was in November, not December, but I wanted to include the photo to get the bigger picture of our holiday season.
