As I write this post I have just finished my foundation! Nothing like the last minute right! LOL
I'll be sharing the remaining dividers later on but for now, I'd like to share my remaining pocket pages and the dividers I had completed before the sun went down and the light was no longer good for photography.
Once again, I dug into my stash and found some little treasures to include from my stash. There is some vintage glitter from my hubby's grandma sewn in with a paper star. I had a small glassine bag from a purchase that I had saved. I slipped some punched stars into it and stapled it shut with a little label sticker. My Silhouette has been hard at work cutting snowflakes and words. Oh, and that collection of buttons is also from Grandma (she removed buttons from every garment and had a fantastic collection at her death which I inherited. Love using those!
I included a vintage paste pin on one of the pages. There are also some mini mirrors behind that snowflake. See them?! More of grandma's buttons. And I'm liking the look of the thread behind the Christmas tree. It is feeling so good to dig into my stash and use some of the things I've had for 10 years and more.
This last page is backed with RED for Christmas day. I also included a vintage slide to demonstrate the need to use photos to remember all the fun we have together. The white diamond background is from some packing material I saved years ago because I liked how it looked. Finally used some! Those stocking charms are Making Memories from eons ago. Oh, and the button came from Helzberg Diamonds from our visit a couple of weeks ago. (I means 'I am Loved' in Spanish)
And here are all of my dividers. These took me forever! But again, I used lots of vintage and new trims I had in my stash. Fun times!
May need to remake 4. I tried to use Stazon to stamp the 4 and it smeared. Then I used Stazon Cleaner to clean the smudge. Unfortunately, it also removed some of the Hambly design. Oops!
Well, that is all for today. But the good news is that I am ready for December! Woot! Can't believe I got it all done. I really did work all day long today on this particular project. Now I am excited that tomorrow morning I should be getting an email from Maggie Holmes for her December Daily photo prompts class.
That, combined with Shimelle's Journal Your Christmas and Ali Edward's tips should produce something wonderful right?
Let me know what you think and if I can answer any questions for you. Happy December!!!
