At the very last minute I've decided I might try and attempt another December Daily this year. Not too sure how successful I'll be. Maybe calling it a Documenting December album will be more accurate. Possibly.
This is not it of course...
When I say I decided at the last minute to attempt a DD I mean here I am
on Dec 1st and I've managed to finish the front cover but not even
photograph it, and I certainly haven't done anything inside it! So
instead I thought I'd share a different mini-album I completed earlier
in the year that I never blogged (because it was published before I ever
had a chance to get it up here!)
Back in January The Man and I celebrated our 10th wedding
anniversary. We had originally planned a trip to Japan, just the 2 of
us. But upon further contemplation of the fact I had the biggest exams
of my life pending in February, and then again in October we thought it
wiser to hold off. He still took me on a romantic weekend away though, and this album tells the story of that.
Not your ordinary album with pages, I took a little twist with this one.
The album base is all one piece of folded card with a series of pockets
into which I've placed tags and cards to pull out individually. That
allowed me to tuck in all the photos (with journaling on the back) as
well as little bits of ephemera we collected on the trip. And when
it started to get a bit bulky I tied a ribbon all around it to make sure
it stays together securely.
All the patterned papers are from the Amy Tangerine Sketchbook
collection (yep - still digging this!) I needed to keep all the
embellishments fairly flat so I've stuck with plenty of Silhouette cuts
Hopefully I'll be back soon blogging my Documenting December album.
Or at least my front cover ;-)
Welcome to the festive season!!
