Hello, and welcome back! Today I'm sharing the second half of my Hello December Project Life by Stampin' Up! album. I have even more pictures to share today, so this will be another long post!
I used the cork numbers here, and for the "0" in the "20" I used a snowflake epoxy sticker. The picture in the lower left is a picture of my parents' house with Christmas lights which I ran through the Waterlogue iPhone app. Love that! Below the "21", I used markers to color the diamond border stamp from the December Wonder Stamp Set.
I like to use Vellum Cardstock to add my journaling, on the dog photo above using the Alphabet Rotary Stamp cut it into banner strips, and below to write on a larger piece of Vellum Cardstock adhered over a journal card. I added one of the printed acetate overlays over a picture on the left side, and added some ribbons on the right side. I also used the Handheld Stapler quite a bit.
I used some more sticker phrases, and stamped on Vellum Cardstock using the "joy" stamp from December Wonder, and the "you can never have too much pie" from the Sweet as Pie October Paper Pumpkin Kit stamps.
I also used the Banner Punch to add a few little banners like the red one with the silver star sticker. I love these 6x8 full page photos, and add just a cluster of embellishments in the upper left corner. This was the Christmas Eve photo of the tree all lit up.
Here is the Christmas Morning photo of the tree...still pretty magical looking, and again I added just a small cluster of items in the upper right corner. I added some stickers and sequins to the cards on the right side.
For the two small photos together on the 3x4 print, I decided to add a small strip of Whisper White cardstock to separate out the photos a little more. I used more stickers and sequins on the journal cards here.
I used the Many Merry Stars set to make an embellishment, and stamped the Christmas verse using a set from Papertrey Ink. The "Holiday Calories Don't Count" stamp was also from the Sweet as Pie October Paper Pumpkin Kit stamps. I added another printed acetate overlay over the picture of my dog and placed a strip of Vellum Cardstock under it so the word "joy" would be more visible.
More cork numbers, sequins, star stickers, Waterloque photo and a stamped title on Vellum Cardstock.
I used a piece of matching Crushed Curry cardstock for the "Go Chiefs!" banner along with the Alphabet Rotary Stamp.
More wonderful embellishments used here include some wood stars, and some stamped stars in Crushed Curry ink on the lower right of the journal card.
I worked in some more ribbon, stamped titles on vellum and the black polka-dot washi tape.
There were so many embellishments in this kit. I still have several journal cards left and embellishments. I used most of two sets of the Variety Pack 6" X 8" Project Life Photo Pocket Pages and two 6" X 8" Project Life Envelopes Pages, and it all fits into the album nicely.
Here are the last few photos. In the first envelope page, I put my Christmas postcard picture side up in the front pocket, and included all the photo Christmas cards that I received in the envelope.
In the second envelope page, I put the back of my Christmas postcard story side up in the front pocket, and then included all the Christmas cards and letters in the envelope.
Whew...told you it was a long post! Now that I'm done with my Christmas album, I'm going to go back and work on my 12x12 Project Life pages for 2015. I'll also have some other projects to share here including some gift boxes and cards. Thanks for stopping by!
