Now, you'll notice that I have matted all of my photos. That is out of necessity, as I used my Canon Selphy 910 printer to print them, which doesn't print true 4" x 6" prints. They are slightly smaller, which makes them slide out of the pockets quite easily. To solve that problem I trimmed the photos down further and matted them on 4" x 6" pieces of Real Red card stock.
On this double layout I once again used several cards from the Hello December kit, including the title card on the left. I simply added some of the little wooden trees and some silver enamel stars from the Accessory kit and added a little clip to keep it from sliding out of the pocket. The shaker card on the left was created using the Peaceful Pines stamp set and coordinating Perfect Pines framelits and the December 25 card was done by die-cutting the wreath from one of the 3"x 4" cards using the Layering Circles framelits, matting it on a slightly larger Real Red circle and then adding a fussy-cut banner and red foil number stickers from the Accessory kit.
The title card on the right hand page began with a 4" x 6" piece of Presents and Pinecones DSP, which just happens to coordinate PERFECTLY with the Hello December card kit! I added a 3"x 4" title card and a little die-cut bow. The journalling card was a 4" x 6" card which I cut down to fit into the 4" x 4" pocket and added a sentiment I trimmed from another 3" x 4" journalling card. The card at the top was just a 4" x 4" piece of Real Red card stock which I embossed using the Cable Knit TIEF. I then added one of the 2" x 2" cards that came in the Accessory Kit, which I matted with Real Red and silver foil card stock.
It's hard to believe, looking at these pictures, that they were taken SIX years ago! I am so glad that I am finally able to get them off my hard drive and into an album for all of us to enjoy. My son (who is now almost 10!) had never seen them before...yikes! If you are like me and waaayyy behind on your memory keeping, consider giving Project Life by Stampin' Up! a try. It is a great, easy way to get caught up in a hurry. Even better? The Hello December 2016 card kit and accessory kit are both on sale during the Year End Closeouts sale...score!
Have a fabulous week!
