Just to finish off

I finished off last year's Handbook a little while back, and I've shared a bunch of pages here and here. So today I'm showing off the last of the pages so that I can finally lay this one to rest. I've been working my butt off to get Judah's baby album done and I'm pleased to say that it's almost there, but I can't share it yet because it's for a super-secret assignment :-)

First up, on the left hand side I've got a page dedicated to Bethany's artwork, and I've included a little notebook she filled in about her heroes as a little added extra. I've really put my Attacher Die to good use to add in all these bits and bobs that don't fit into a pocket easily. And did you see that Studio Calico just released an updated version for 6-ring binders too?

Whilst on the right hand side of this spread I've got a page documenting the time we went to the Queen concert. This full 6x8" page allowed enough room to include a photo and the ticket and a bit of journaling without having to break it up into separate pockets.

Next up we have Moriah's 5th birthday party. And by party I just mean a couple of relatives around our kitchen table celebrating with her Frozen-style.

It was such a great excuse to break out my stash of snowflake embellishments that don't otherwise get much use around here.

Then I've got a spread dedicated to my Grandma's funeral. Not a fabulous topic, but a real-life one, and of course it's one that's an important part of our lives so I definitely wanted to include it in my Handbook. I've put a little handwritten note from her in one of the pockets, and used those Attacher Dies to add in her Memorial Order of Service.

And finally I put in those stock-standard Kindergarten photos that Moriah came home with that I don't think I'd ever use for a layout (perhaps a little too staged for my liking?) so into the album they went.

Oh and a spread for the time I saw the musical Once, just to mix it up a bit. That's the beauty of the Handbook I reckon - small pages to document a hodgepodge of memories without any need for logical flow because each one can stand alone, or work together as a full spread.



  1. Love it! Love the idea of the little die with those holes for adding memorablia...never seen one of them before :):) Love the eclectic mix of your album, too!


Thanks for visiting my blog today. Come back again soon :-)
