Hello Friends! Alexandra here with some Christmas pocket pages to share with you.

 I've used Simple Stories' CLASSIC CHRISTMAS which I find to be both an easy and pretty match with the pictures taken during the holidays

Here are the pages as they appear in my 12x12 SN@P! Album

I also used the Classic Christmas colletion to document week 50 

The scare of that week: having a tire explode on the fast lane of the express way! Of course that had to happen when it was like 0F outside but I was lucky in the end, got help and snapped the picture you see above.   On one card, I underlined the days of the week with a red pencil and then on the card with the three bubbles, I wrote down about three moments or impressions.

The classic color scheme goes so well with all pictures, festive or not festive!


Hello dear Friends! Alexandra here with a double-spread about our Thanksgiving. 

Naturally, I turned to the beautiful Gather Together Simple Set to illustrate our week.

As you can see, I've included pictures relating to the world news as well as some gift received and even our new bed sheets! 

Don't you just love these faux-tags? they're perfect to add journaling and create added visual insterest!

I added an orange leaf and two gems on this green card

On that second page, I added pictures of the family, our home and the first Yule Log I baked right after Thanksgiving.

That card "What's on the Menu?" was perfect for my journaling because this year, for the first time we did not have turkey but Spaghetti!

Thank you!


Hello Friends! Alexandra here with a brand new spread using The Reset Girl collection. This double page features two weeks instead of one. 

I balanced the black found in the pictures with some papers from Simple Stories The Reset Girl 12x12 Simple Basic Kit

 I printed the date on the gold foiled tag which comes from the Reset Girl Bits & Pieces.

 I printed my journaling in the form of strips so that they would stand out on the dark printed paper. That cute typewriter also comes from the Reset Girl Bits & Pieces.

and here is what our WEEK 44 looked like in Chi-Town. My husband has been a Cubs' fan all of his life so you can easily imagine he was and still is over the moon about their incredible win!
