I added a few more pages to my December moments mini book...
We spent part of our Christmas up in Bemidji and so I wanted to include a few pages from when we were up there.
We brought our snowshoes up and so one of the days was spent over at the state park enjoying a hike through the snow. I used the strip on the side of the photo pockets to add my journaling and a few decorative elements.
I added the title with the new Type Strips II set & coordinating Type Bits Strip die and typed up the journaling underneath that with my typewriter. I stamped the "let it snow" sentiment from the Monthly Moments: December set underneath my journaling several times in True Black ink and added the red glitter strip that I have been using through out the book. A few snowflakes die cut with Monthly Moments: December dies finished off the look.
I dressed up this photo of my snowshoes just a bit with a few more die cut snowflakes stuck right to the photo - If you didn't want to stick anything right to your photos, you can always attach them to the top side of the page protector. The snowflake patterned paper that I used on the bottom of the side strip is included in the Monthly Moments: December journal card collection.
The other page in the layout includes a few photos from when we were at my husband's parents home.
At the top I added my title/journaling card and a photo of the cross stitched stocking that my mother in law has made for the whole family.
I used the Type Strip sets again for the title and typed the journaling underneath with my typewriter. I stamped a pine branch and a few berries from the Monthly Moments: December set with Ripe Avocado and Pure Poppy inks.
On the bottom part of this page I included another shaker card that I created with the Monthly Moments: Journal Card 7 die and a journal card from the Monthly Moments: December journal card collection. I layered the die cut journal card with a die cut piece of acetate and used some embroidery floss to stitch up the bottom and sides. Before I stitched up the top I filled my shaker with some gold sequins.
On the photo of Hana, I added one more simple embellishment. I stamped the "merry" circle element from the Monthly Moments: December set in Ripe Avocado and then added the "Christmas" underneath it in True Black ink. I punched it out with a circle punch and stuck it right to the photo along with a die cut snowflake.
I have a few more pages that I want to add to my December moments mini book before it is complete. I love how this little book is coming along. Using a kit like the Monthly Moments: December collection makes it SO easy. Everything is coordinated and makes every layout flow with all of the others in the book. I can't wait to share it with my family and to put it out each year at Christmas.
Happy scrapbooking and please share the pages that you have created with me. I would love to see them!
