Still catching up on posts, so here are days seven through ten. Enjoy!
This was the day that the kids wrote their letters to Santa. I had a hard time with this page. I wanted to include a photo of the letters, as well as, journaling and photos of them. I opted to include a page that I cut down to about 2 1/2 in wide and 8 in long for their photos. I’m pretty happy with the outcome.
Today I added our Christmas card. I went traditional this year instead of a photo card, but I did attach a family photo to the inside of each card. I love the way this page turned out. I sewed the card to the center of the 6×8 pocket page and then added the sequins and tab at the top and stitched it closed at the top.
This was the day we had our Santa Search. The kids were super excited about it, so I decided to add it to the book. Just a story about the fun they had and a small collage of photos from the hunt. I like these 4×4 pockets pages. They’re great for Instagram photos.
Today as part of our Advent, we were took the kids to Starbucks after Hudson got out of school to get them each a snowman cookie (we’ve taken them too late the last two years and Starbucks was completely sold out.) and we got some coffee. Then we took them to a local nursery where they had some of Santa’s reindeer on loan. It was such a fun little afternoon. I was excited to include one of the Starbucks bags into the album; especially this one that reads “Share The Merry”, which is exactly what we were doing. They always have the best holiday sentiments. I included the journaling on a card that I slid into the bag.
I really liked the confetti in the December Daily kit and I just so happened to have a bag of it, so I picked out the traditional Christmas colors of red, green and white and then added some light blue too. I love the look!
See you tomorrow with some more pages! Let me know if you have any questions about any of the products I used.
