I was so excited to work on a December Daily album for Simple Stories this year. Do you know I have never done a December album before. I think I have mentioned before that mini albums stress me out? The whole designing something on such a small space and making it look organized and consistent while at the same time interesting and beautiful? Too much pressure. But, Simple Stories does A LOT of the work for you. The SN@P albums come in a bunch of cute colors including red and green. I went with green for mine. And there are all types of products like full pages, mini cards, larger cards etc in the simply beautiful Handmade Holiday collection. Add to that a variety of page protectors and you have yourself one quick and easy December Daily.
and more embellishing here and there:
On some of the full sized pages I added some pictures from last year, just to get an idea of what it will look like when it is completed.
I made sure to include lots of pockets here and there for extra pictures and tickets--
--especially since this year we will have ticket stubs from the Polar Express! I think I am more excited than the kids about this!
This is such a quick and easy way to include all the little traditions we try and do each year like the Target gingerbread house. Yes, it is from Target--don't judge, it is after all a tradition!
And of course--the BIG day...
