December Daily | Days 22 to 25

Sharing a ton of pages today. My album is not completely done, but it feels good to have all my pictures in there. The only thing missing is some journaling.  I have a few spots that would use a little filler because I switched between page protector styles on different days.  I'll just cut up patterned paper for this probably.

 Day 22 |
Our north pole train ride!  We've never done anything like this before and it was a lot of fun.  Not sure we'll do this every year since it was such a long ride, but it was good to experience once.

I had to cut a little notch in the page protector to slip the reindeer over the photo because the tail was sticking out too much to fit inside the pocket, lol.
ps. can you tell I ran out of S's?  I even had two packs of those letters and still.

Another Paislee Press die cut card.  I used a pencil eraser and gold brilliance ink to add some bokeh dots to the card.  Subtle but so pretty.  Love it.

The peppermint tag is a piece of vintage ephemera from my latest JBS kit.  I added another Target snowflake here.  Happy for the continuity they are giving my album (even though we have no actual snow here, lol.)

Journaling directly on the photo. Magical polaroid frame is from my SC kit.

Day 23|
Simple spread.  One photo and one journaling card.  Love those bark stars.  The small Heidi Swapp letters are a great size for pocket pages. 

Day 24|

Love this card from SC.  Such a show stopper.  Another gold glitter star here.

I also printed out a big photo for this day with those fun 'gingerbread' chipboard letters from WRMK.  Very inspired by Pam Garrison who I found in the SC gallery for this page

Day 25|
The first page is a lot of opening present photos.

I put in a full page photo of Nandini next and then made this quick little layout for the back.  I don't have this awesome stamp set, but my friend was awesome enough to let me use hers.  Major score!

Full spread.

I had an extra strip of this star overlay that fit the height of the wood veneer letters perfectly.  I added a few more Basic Grey metal stars and another red JBS star.  Avinash was desperate to have my pack of little red stars, but I was mean and didn't share.

I really liked how our Christmas card envelopes turned out, so I trimmed an extra one and slipped it in here (actually I messed up the mailing address on this one, but why let it go to waste?).
I had so much cute pictures to include, so I made a fold out insert for photos.  I lined up my photos and put a few paper strips on the sides.  I glued the photos to the strips, front and back and folded the strips.

I stapled a piece of ribbon to the outside photo to use as a tab and remind me to open it up and see more photos. 

I fully intend to add some journaling here but just haven't done it yet..

I have used every bit of this gold pressed paper from the SC kit.  I used every stamp from an SC add-on kit on a tag, just as is, and pasted it on here.

My album is super thick and I think I'm going to stop here.  Maybe add in one or two more little things.  I like how Ali Edwards finished her album off with a page of subway art.  It has been such a fun project and I'm happy to have it (almost) done!
