To start things off, I'm sharing the first look at my December Documented album. This will be my first December album as usually I go to my parents for Christmas so there is nothing to to journal about! but this year we are staying home for our first ever Christmas, I'm super excited and I'll be recording everything as I go!
here. I've used a Basic Grey 'Capture' album with my kit as I wanted something smaller than 12x12 and the kraft goes perfectly with the kit colours...
I used the woodgrain and teal snowflake papers from the kit to cut the pieces for panel, the teal paper I punched with a Fiskars notebook punch along the top and I layered some matching washi tape in the middle of the two layers (this was from a Freckled Fawn 'Oh Deer Me' kit) Here are a couple of close ups...
The little tab is from the 'Snip 'n' Stick' embellishment sheet in the kit and I used it with a Dear Lizzy date stamp
The resin frame was from a previous 'A Few of My Favourite Things...' kit, I'd been saving it for something special! I stamped the '25' stamp in the middle in gold and added the frame and acrylic star with pinflair glue, I also used a word strip, a little more glitter tape and some enamel dots to finish it.
This album comes with lots of shaped pages which I loved! so I used one of them to make my first page, I wanted to be able to see a peek of my first page behind it...
This was embellished with some more glitter tape, enamel dots and a gold sequin - I think there will be lots of gold in this album!
The first prompt in the book starts on the 1st and I already have a plan of what my page will look like. I will be sharing my first few pages in a couple of days time, I hope you'll pop back to take a look :o)
If you do decide to pick up the kit and follow the same prompts in the book, don't forget to share your links with me here or on Facebook or Twitter, I'd love to see your progress!
