Hi everyone ! It's Mindi here with you today on this fine December day. I don't know about you but I am so excited to get this Holiday season going. Today I am going to be sharing some pocket pages that I have created using the Classic Christmas collection. The hint of blue in this kit is my favorite, so pretty.
Every year I choose to make a seperate December Album. Typically I have done it daily and last year was no different. Recently I have been busily trying to add some more pictures and pages into my album from last year. I loved creating these pages with this collection. Here is a look at day 8.
This particular day my husband and I went to a work related dinner. I did manage to get a selfie of both of us for the album but that was it for that day. I decided to add in a few filler cards including that adorable dress card to fill in the gaps due to the lack of photos. Another thing that I added in my album on day 8 was another filler card using the fabulous gold numbers. They are so pretty, the photos don't do them justice. To create this filler card I started out with a little bit of watercolors on some white cardstock. I felt that the 8 needed to be dressed up a little bit so I added some patterned paper behind the top circle of the 8. I also added a few strips of washi to the bottom and stamped some fun sentiments in the bottom circle. Let's talk about that roller stamp, you guys it is so fun ! I used that in the middle of the circle of the 8.
One of the items in the Classic Christmas collection are these fun SN@P pages. I knew I wanted to add some into my album and so I added one in next to my day 8. This one matched the other side so well with the creme and the gold. I decided to dress it up just a little with some stickers, clear stickers, and some washi tape.
I am skipping around to day 13 now. Last year getting Christmas up dragged on way longer than it should have. This day I took a few photos around the house and paired it with another one of these fun SN@P pages.
I didn't have to much to say on day 13 so I added that fun chipboard house on the bottom of my journaling card. I sprinkled lots of stickers/word strips all over my journaling card and photo on this day. I love to play around with my supplies and make it my own.
Again, I used another gold number for day 13. I couldn't help it, they are so great ! I added it onto my photo of my garland around my stair railing. I added some stickers around the number and also stamped "Happy Holidays" onto the number using the roller stamp.
As I mentioned before I have added another SN@P page with my page 13. This one was perfect for my home decor and wreath photos. I added another chipboard house onto the bottom of this front side of the page. It fit perfectly into the box on the bottom. In the middle of the wreath I added a clear sticker onto a vellum heart for a nice look. On the back side of the SN@P page I added more stickers, and I used the blue letters to spell out home.
Let's move onto my last few pages that I am going to share today. Day 18 was when we went on a date night and saw Star Wars. Here is a look at what both days 18 and 19 look together.
During the day I thought it would be fun to get a Star Wars photo to text to my husband. I added some patterned paper and the snowflake to the corner of my photo. It needed something up in the corner and I love how the pop of color worked perfectly. I chose a simpler journaling card for this day because I had a little more to say. The tag piece from the bits and pieces package was the perfect embellishment.
This is what I did for the bottom pocket. I had saved this Star Wars sticker from something that we went to that week. I used another gold number as well as a triangle tree I cut out from some patterned paper to finish off that card.
Day 19 was a favorite of mine. We had a church party that night and then Santa came to visit the kids. On the top part of my page I added in a little bit of journaling onto this journaling card. Next to it is a photo of my daughter and Santa.
This card might be my favorite. I loved this Creme colored Santa card. I wanted to use it as a journaling card so I cut out the Santa off of the card and added it onto my journaling card once I had it all printed out. Once I had my journaling printed out I played around with some patterned paper and ended up with a strip of some paper from the 6x6 paper pad. With that done then I added some stickers and I also added the numbers 19 from the sticker sheet.
I debated where I wanted to have this day a two page spread or not. I had lots of Santa photos that I wanted to add them into this day. I decided to use a photo flip. They are the perfect solution to add in more photos into your pocket pages.
Here is a look at what all three photos look like together. I wanted to add a little something to each photo. I added some stickers, washi tape, and added the kids's initials.
That is it for me today. I am so happy to have completed some December pages from last year. I have loved playing around and creating with the Classic Christmas collection. Thanks for coming and I hope you have been inspired to document your December memories. I want to wish you all a very happy Holiday Season.
