December Daily Album 2017 | Foundation Pages Using Pinkfresh Studio!!!

Hi everyone! Today I am sharing another batch of Foundation Pages in my 2017 December Daily Album! I really wanted to be sure this year to use all the lovely collections I have purchased, so I am creating my foundation pages as product arrives. These pages were created using Pinkfresh Studio December Days. I hope you love them!

Here is the collection of foundation pages. These are the foundation pages for Days 7,15, 17, and 21.

December Daily 2017 | Foundation Pages Using Sahlin Studio December!!!

Hi everyone! I am working through my Foundation Pages in my December Album for 2017 and this one is especially fun! I am using the newest collection from Sahlin Studio called December, and you are going to want to run over there to pick it up!

I am so excited to share these pages with you, and cannot wait to start the actual month of December and fill this album with all our best memories!

My approach to creating foundation pages really is quite simple: 1 card for journaling, 1 card for a filler, and space for a photo or photos. Add a number (or don't, either way!) and it's done.

I already placed alternating pocket pages into the album - for this year I am using a full 6x8 page on one side, and divided on the other. Some of the full size pages will be photos, others will be templates or patterned papers. I love having options there!

Whenever I receive a collection that I want to use in my December album, I always go through my foundation pages and select a number of pages to use the product in. In this instance, the December collection is digital, so I print out my favorite cards first thing. I print out all the numbers so I have those ready to go as well. And then I add them into the pockets.

That is all for today! I still have several foundation pages I am still finishing up and will share with you next week!

{December Album 2011} Video No. 05

Hi everyone! Today I am sharing a little more of my 2011 December album with you! This is an album that I documented for back in 2011 as it was happening, but never was able to complete. I am so happy to share this process with you now, and I hope if you have albums you always wanted to go back and finish you will be inspired to go do it!

This video captured my process for two layouts, so let's take a closer look! The first layout began with a photo of the boys playing Jedi light saber battles on the front porch of my apartment. I have used product mostly from the Felicity Jane Hello Christmas kit from 2016.

My structure for this album is alternating pocket pages with patterned papers outside of the page protector. My photo is printed a tiny bit smaller than the pocket so I could back it with patterned paper and embellish around it.

I absolutely love this star patterned paper so it became the backdrop for the full page spread. I added my journaling to a 3x4 card from the kit and then added a bit more embellishing and stitching.

Turning the page, I began the next layout with photos from a PJ Skate Night for one of the kids' schools. For this layout I used a combination of older products from my stash. Some I have no idea where they came from, but I do know the labels are Jillibean Soup, the patterned paper is My Mind's Eye, the green card is One Little Bird, and the vellum and roller skate are Crate Paper.

This layout was so much fun to make! The large photo went onto the polka dot paper along with the title on the label and simple journaling.

For the pocket page, I created a sequin pocket using silver stars and red stitching to seal it all in. I also repeated the stitching on the green card to add a little contrast!

I hope these layouts have been fun and inspiring for you! Are you starting to feel the holiday excitement yet? We sure are here!
