Christmas Time 2014 // Double Pocket Page Share11:00:00 AM
Hello there crafty friends! In case you weren't sick of all of the Christmas layouts, I brought you one last one for the year! This is a double pocket page spread that features a bunch of our Christmas photos from 2014. I hope you enjoy this basic holiday spread!
All of the papers used on these two pages are from the My Mind's Eye Sleigh Bells collection. It is an older collection, but some beautiful papers! I cut them to the appropriate pocket sixes for each section. As for the photos, many of you know that I always use the classic 4x6 photo printing size. Then, I trim many of those 4x6 photos down to 3x4 as well so everything works with the pocket page sizing.
For the large portrait oriented filler card, I used a festive pocket to make a journaling spot using a tag. The pocket is from the same line of the papers. To incorporate a little more glitz, I slipped a gold doily under the pocket. I used some Tim Holtz Seasonal word stickers for some additional detail.
This reindeer/deer head paper is one of my favorites from this collection. On this filler card which doubles as a journaling spot too. I used a green label from Elle's Studio, another Tim Holtz tiny word sticker, a Recollection heart tag, and a Studio Calico "morning" phrase die cut. This cluster adds a lot to the layout with all of the layering.
This is one of my absolute favorite cards on this page because of this adorable mini envelope! There is a little note card in there too which is so cute! I used black thread to add more texture, a sticker from My Mind's Eye, and some gold gems.
The main title is on the matching page, but for this page I decided to put the year in some large stickers. The combo of red, green, and kraft is a perfect color combo for Christmas layouts. Let's hop on to the other side of the layout!
This is what I would consider the main page to the double page layout. To match the other layout I of course used the same paper line. I used a different style page protector to add more interest across the pages. I try to either have an even amount of photos to fillers to give a balance when possible.
This filler card uses the same type of tag on the other page along with a sticker from October Afternoon and a flair badge from My Mind's Eye. The sticker I wanted to point out is actually a gift tag sticker that says to and from on it. I incorporated this by flipping it around to hide that little bit! A great tip to use some not so perfect items as well.
I really enjoyed making this little filler card as well. I used one of my classic doilies to add texture and on top of that to add even more interest, I used a gold-dipped canvas tag. The large green circular sticker is from the coordinating sticker sheet from My Mind's Eye. I bought all of these goodies from them in a bundle deal.
This is my last official holiday themed post for this season and I'm sad to see it end, but happy for the new year! I hope you all enjoy everything that I have shared and have gotten some inspiration out of it. Thank you all so much for stopping by and happy holidays!
