But then about a month ago, I was in the scrap room and my son was going through the Summer Mini album that I put together using this kit from my friend Monika's shop, when he said, "I love looking at these little albums, Mommy." And I realized how often they look through our little mini-albums. And suddenly working on a December Daily didn't seem like that much trouble after all.
I decided to put together my album ahead of time-I kept things super simple. No fancy binders or overlays. I wanted something the kids can pull out and look through any time they want.
I used kraft cardstock as my base pages. I had purchased a couple of sheets of the Simple Stories 25 Days of Christmas at Archiver's 43% off sale and decided to use that for all my accents. I paired it with a plaid print from Basic Grey's Oxford line.
My pages are 6" x 6". I'm either going to use 4" x 6" photos or since I take so many photos with my iPhone-4" x 4" Instagram photos printed by Postal Pix.
I'll add a few extra embellishments once I have pictures and journaling but I love that most of the work is done. Super simple and fast! I plan on either punching some holes with my Crop-A-Dile and adding some binder rings or getting a cheap red binder-just depends on how big this album gets.
Either way, I'm looking forward to starting this tomorrow! :)
