I purchased Ali's white, 6 x 8 album, with a gold 2015 medallion on the spine. I decorated it with this delightful Christmas Magic vellum by Shimelle, some Starfoam dots, and our [SPOILER] Minted Christmas card mounted on some Bazzill red, textured glossy cardstock.
A closeup best shows you the gold foil on the card. I am in love. It cost a bit, but considering that Minted creates addressed envelopes for you and gives you this kind of product, it was worth every penny.
I purchased the Ashley G mini kit from Ali. It had LOTS of foiled details, as well as a color scheme that worked well for me. Except the pink. No pink, thanks! This page uses a 6 x 8 piece of patterned paper from this kit. I also utilized some of my stash of Thickers (praise God!) for the 25. Keeping it simple for sure.
A closeup to see the glitter. I like how my tree lights are reflected in there.
Ali suggests that you name your intention with this album. I went with it. I used her free .png file (my reason why) and typed my intention. Clicking on this picture will make the type more visible.
And here is the simplicity of Day 1. I used a number card from the Ashley G kit and typed my journaling on my photos. I slipped them into one of the page protectors that came with the kit. Voila. That is how easy I MUST keep this if I am going to keep up. Just a simple, fun documentation of the year's festivities.
