Sharing a quick layout today. I had been trying to use up items from the “We are Family” collection from Simple Stories and I stumbled upon this amazing layout by Lisa Dickinson. Here’s my take on it. This patterned paper made this layout come together super quick and easily!
She’s been four for like…8 months…!! But I did finally get around to making a page about it 😉
All of the stuff on this page is from Bella Blvd. Just love their bright and bold collections for pages like this. We had a little party for her playgroup friends one day at our house. I snagged a thing of face paint and painted everyone’s face – Brooke was thrilled and I LOVE this pic that I grabbed of her just before the party:
I am happy to say that my December Daily for 2015 is fully DONE! So happy that I was able to complete this album this year, in a timely manner. Woohoo! It’s super thick but that’s OK – lots of good memories.
Here’s a look at pages 7-13:
Day 8 was pretty simple and I opposed this DIY Letter Shaker page that I blogged about here.
I added our Christmas card for this year in between day 10 and 11 as a filler card. Just punched some holes and popped it right in. Easy peasy!
I added the number and journaling for page 13 on this tag, an idea that stole from Ali Edwards.
Here’s a quick filler page that I made for my December Daily this year. If you haven’t joined the Scrap Gals community on Facebook, you need to! We talk about all things scrapbook & crafty. It’s a fun time! Alex Hunter posted some amazing digital freebies in the group. This one of her hand lettering was stunning, and I just knew when I saw it, it needed to be foiled.
I don’t own a Minc, but I do have a laminator and a LaserJet printer. I printed this sentiment out on plain old white cardstock, grabbed some Heidi Swapp foil and ran it through my laminator on the highest heat setting. It worked LIKE a charm!
I adhered it to some October Afternoon designer paper and stitched around the edges to complete the page. Boom, done! Love how this turned out – and I love the sentiment so much. Thank you, Alex for your amazing hand lettered freebie!
