Hi there Foxy Friends!
This is my last blog post for 2020, what a year! Now, more than ever I am so grateful to be able to hide myself away in my craft room in an attempt to switch off from the real world.
My 24 Stories To Tell December mini album is coming along nicely, although I'm not ready to share a flip through just yet! I have been on a real trip down memory lane as I've looked through old photographs which have stirred a lot of happy memories. It's easy when we take photos now to edit, using filters and enhancing tools to make our pictures look as good as they can be but I've decided to leave the old photos I've used as they were even though they may not be as flattering!!
I love the tiny etched Gingerbread House from the Gingerbread collection, it reminds me of when I used to make houses with my girls, overloaded with sweet treats! You get a glimpse of all the bits and pieces sticking out of the album, it's turning into a very chunky, tactile little book. I've used an assortment of papers, adding to the Prima Sugar Cookie Christmas I already had.
I made the envelope to house a few photos and journalling, a velcro dot keeps it closed. Those stars are so useful and I love using pom pom trim, ribbons and threads on my pages.
I've added stories to some of the pages I shared last month
I printed letters to Santa in miniature to tuck into the tiny envelopes!
Don't you think glasses date a photo more than anything?!
The flap lifts up to reveal my journalling. With plans so drastically changed I expect I'll have lots of time over Christmas to finish my album and conclude my trip down memory lane so all that remains is for me to wish you the best Christmas you can possibly have in these strange times. I'll be back in 2021.
Take care and stay safe
