December Daily/ Journal Your Christmas Album Part 2

Hello. I am back for part 2 of my December Daily/ Journal Your Christmas album share. I am going to jump right in where we left off with Day 8. I created a simple band to fit across the page to hold photos and tags (Silver Bells Echo Park paper cut with the Slice and Basics 1 cartridge). I used the Martha Stewart Gifts deep edge punch and layered a strip of the Wool Wausau paper and a stamped sentiment (Life in Pictures stamp set by Ali Edwards and Aspen Mist Versa Magic Ink). I also used Family Treasures punches to add the '8th' to the bottom of the page.




Day 9 is another smaller pocket page to hold photos and a journaling tag (cut with the Slice and Basics 1 cartridge). Family Treasures punches were used to add the '9th' to the bottom of the tag. I decorated the front of the pocket starting with paper from the Echo Park Playground collection. I layered a die cut (Contemporary Hearts Spellbinders Shapeabilities) with a scallop circle (Oriental Trading punch) and 2" circle (Fiskars punch) that was stamped with the Hero Arts Graph stamp in Aspen Mist ink. I also used the EK Success Rudolph punch and Wool Wausau paper to make the reindeer. His scarf is the Pimiento Wausau paper punched with the Martha Stewart DIY Snowman punch. For a bit of dimension I used foam dots to adhere the reindeer to the center of the circle.




The page for Day 10 is a taller pocket with an insert for a photo on the front and journaling on the back. I used more of the AC Merrymint collection paper and added 2 tags to the top corner (Silver Bells paper, Slice and Basics 1 cartridge, and Family Treasure punches).


The page for Days 9 and 10 opens to reveal 2 pages for Days 11 and 12.



The page for Day 11 is simply a photo mat (paper from the AC Merrymint collection) with layered embellishments at the bottom. I plan to use more of the Tim Holtz mini paperclips to attach my journaling tags to the top of the page. For the element at the bottom of the page I used Papertrey Ink's Mat stack 4 die and layered a 2" circle (Fiskars punch and Wool Wausau paper). I cut the snowflake using my Slice and the Mistletoe cartridge and adhered it to the circle with foam dots for added dimension. I added the '11th' to the snowflake after punching the Silver Metallic Wausau paper with Family Treasures punches.



The page for Day 12 is a pocket page with a banner across the bottom. I lined the pocket with the Royal Metallics Chalice Silver Wausau paper and added 2 tags for photos or journaling (Silver Bells paper and cut with the Slice and Basics 1 cartridge). For the 4 banner pieces I used Papertrey Ink's Banner Builder Dies and die cut the peices out of Becky Higgins Journaling Cards and Wool Wausau paper. I added snowflakes punched from the Silver Wausau paper. For the tag in the middle of the banner I used my Slice & Mistletoe cartridge and layered a 1" circle (Fiskars punch and Silver Wausau paper) and the '12th' (Family Treasures punches).





The page for Day 13 has a simple band made from the Wool Wausau paper and layered with an EK Success Flourish Square punched shape, snowflakes punched from the Silver Wausau paper and a stamped sentiment from the Good Cheer stamp set by Ali Edwards in Aspen Mist Ink. The two tags are cut with the Slice and Basics 1 cartridge from the Silver Bells Echo Park paper and Silver Wausau paper. I added the '13th' (Family Treasures punches) to the bottom corner of the page.



The page for Day 13 is a flap that lifts up to reveal the page for Day 14.


The page for Day 14 has a pocket for photos and a journaling tag (Family Treasures punches, Slice & Basics 1 cartridge). The back of the pocket is lined with Pimiento Wausau paper and the front was created with Martha Stewart Skyland Snowflake Deep Edge punch. I added a tab to the top of the pocket that was cut from the Silver Bells paper with my Slice and Noteworthy cartridge. The background paper behind the pocket is from the AC Merrymint collection.





This page also has a more interactive feature. I am sure some of you may have noticed the white
tab peeking out in previous photos. That is a pull tab that moves the pocket into an upright position. Eventhough this page is in the middle of the book, it was one of the last pages I created. I wish I had thought of this earlier on in the process and been able to add more pages like this one. This page was really fun to make and I can't wait to make more pages like this in another album.



Day 15 is a pocket page for photos and a journaling tag (Family Treasures punches, Slice & Basics 1 cartridge). The back of the pocket is lined with the Wool Wausau paper and the front is lined with more of the AC Merrymint collection paper. The white die cuts were all cut with my Slice and the Mistletoe & Basics 1 cartridges.



The final page for today, Day 16, is a pocket page with another photo/ journaling insert. I used paper from the Echo Park Playground collection for the photo insert and added two tags to the top corner (Silver Bells paper, Martha Stewart Vintage Ornament punch, Slice, and Mistletoe cartridge.
