Here we are again at this wonderful time of year when I get to make my most favourite album and document the magic of December.
I have been a bit stumped for a cover design. I so easily fall back on the same old same old because I like what I like and nothing has been jumping out at me. So even though I’ve done it before I think I’ll go back to kraft coloured card stock and white. I just can’t help it.
I could tell you right now that some of the stories will be about the advent gifts, the eggnog latte, the wrapping, the putting up the tree and the twinkle lights. I do worry about repetition but mostly I know that tradition is one of the beauties of this project. And I know that without a doubt there will be something new.
Here is a little list of things I want to remember to use/incorporate this year –
- see through pockets filled with glitter and sequins
- teeny banners along the tops of pages
- type on photos before printing (especially white type)
- full page photos
- use the idea prompts I’ve ‘pinned’ to help capture the magic
- have fun!
And just look at that amazing collection of albums. When I first embarked on this project I could not have imagined the joy I have had from doing it December since or the wonderful gift those albums give each time I pick the up.
If you are on the fence about joining in, don’t be. Jump with both feet and in a couple of years you’ll have a mantle full of goodness too.
