I love the holidays and once we hit fall each year, the countdown is on for when I can light up my house with twinkling lights and sparkle and pretty colors. I've always been so inspired by people who document the holidays so fully and have so many fun activities and things to do during the holidays each day. For a long time I've wanted to create an album focused on the fun my family has during the holidays, it's just never worked out to be a daily thing with my work schedule and school and all the crazy things that come up during the week for my little family. What works better for me is a book documenting the highlights of the holidays - the traditions we've always held near and dear to our hearts, and the new things we try each year. I love being the memory keeper in my family, knowing that someday my boys will look upon these albums with their families and hopefully want to carry on some of these traditions themselves.
Inspired by this holiday memory keeping, I pulled out the digital 6x8 pocket pages again and of course, my love for bright, fun, and bold colors drew me right in to the Tis the Season SN@P! Set. I kept it pretty light and simple this time, letting my photos and words take center stage, with some light embellishment to draw the eye in.
I love the varying alphabet stickers included with this - I'm a big fan of mixing and matching and these worked perfectly. I also "cut" the card in the top left corner to fit around the card, almost as if you would with an X-acto knife with a paper product, and I love how that one turned out.
On this page, I ended up resizing and layering different cards to bring more colors and patterns into play, and "cutting" up cards to fit in other spots, like the hearts below the photo in the bottom left.
I am really happy with how this turned out and excited to document the holidays in my own way.
