VIDEO: "December Daily" Mini Kit Layout Process // Cover Page

November 18, 2017

Hello crafty friends! Can you believe that Thanksgiving and Christmas are just around the corner? It doesn't truly feel like the holidays until I am home. Luckily, with Thanksgiving next week, I'll be in the spirit! I'm also excited to start documenting last year's Christmas memories. I have all of the photos printed and a mini kit created to start me off. Today, I am sharing the front cover and the process of my cover page! 

My front cover is very simple. The album itself came with a chevron texture which I thought didn't truly go with the theme, but used it anyway. I decorated the outside cover with a lot of chipboard pieces from Echo Park. I used a EK Success glitter sticker for the title of the album. I added the date to the front of the album using Pink Fresh Studio gold foil stickers. A simple album cover for my first "December Daily" album. Then, I began working on my cover page!

The cover page is actually not a traditional pocket page, but a file folder from Teresa Collins. It's a really unique item that is not included in mainstream scrapbooking collections. I really love how these file folders let the colors and textures really shine. You can actually feel the wood veneer and see the strings move. I find it much more interactive than a traditional pocket page album with sleeves.

On the cover of the file folder I used a white doily from Wilton and layered some Elle's Studio bits on top. The tag is from their Oh Joy bits and pieces and the rectangular quote is from one of their cut apart sheets. I looped some silver embroidery floss through the tag for some more movement.

I snuck in a little stamp under the right side of the doily. This stamp is from the Wild Whisper Home for the Holidays collection. I used an accidental combo of Colorbox Seattle Sky and Colorbox Lipstick Red. I also decorated the cover with various texture pieces.

Mainly, I used some wood veneer snowflakes from Recollections as well as some wood veneer hearts from my stash. I also used a variety of Echo Park enamel dots for some shine.

I included one of the premed Teresa Collins tabs for a fun festive word strip. I hope you enjoyed this project, don't forget to watch Anna's video too! Thanks for stopping by!
