Project - holiday album: merry & happy dec mini
Ahhh. The december mini album. So many ways to approach it. Do you do it daily? Fancy? Simple?
Here's how I attack it: I know me. I know that big pages and lots of techniques (although I LOVE those kind of albums and hats off to you all who can pull it off!) will mean Lexi will only do a day or two of documenting the month. Then I will feel like a failure. I don't think in a holly, jolly, busy time like December you should feel like a failure. SO I went a smaller, more simple route.
I know that simple for me means lots of phone pics that I will print from my selphy printer. I used that gauge to trim down album covers from chipboard (not an exact size. I didn't even measure.) and freehand cut out the star with an exacto knife. The old dictionary paper was randomly patch worked together with red thread. I did include the word “christmas” on there and fortunately the word that's bold on the side “mirthfulness” goes along with the theme of the mini. Not planned, but happy it worked out like that :)
I'm not sure my mini will be a daily thing, therefore I didn't include numbered days. Plus, I might decide to switch up the order of the pages. All of that can be added in later. I did minimal embellishing because I wasn't sure where a photo would be placed versus journaling. I can always add more bits and pieces as the month progresses.
I keep the color scheme somewhat cohesive with black, white, red, kraft and bits of blue. I like a variety of shapes and sizes in a mini so there are some tag pages, envelope pages (great for holding wish lists), glitter paper, wood, vellum and patterned paper.
It will be fun to see how the album shapes up as I start adding in moments from our december!
Thanks for looking!
