As you can see each page acts as an introduction to the day and on some of the pages you can see the date peeking through.
The front and back covers are pieces of cardboard, which I painted white and glued a piece of the vellum with the white circles on one side and gold pinecone patterned paper from Anna Griffin on the inside.
I will be using 3 binder rings to secure the album once it's finished.
I bought the rhinestone words HoHoHo at Michaels and printed the number 12 from Designer Digitals, designed by Ali Edwards.
I stitched little pockets into a regular photo album page protector. My son Ciaran painted the little wooden stars.
This page was made by using spray glue to attach the cutout tree paper onto a transparency sheet.
This is one of the overlays I downloaded from Designer Digitals, designed by K.Pertiet
The store bought transparency again. The saying inside the little frame is from Ali Edwards. I painted the frame gold and attached it with brads.
When I first saw Ali's album I wanted to create it exactly the way she had done.
I love everything about her album and it was my taste to a "T".
However, I was a little heartbroken when I couldn't find any of the supplies.
I am really happy how it's turned out in the end.
Considering I was "supply challenged" at times, it really forced me to use what I had to get a little creative.
After all, that's what it's all about. Right?
