I'm about six months behind with my Project Life spreads from 2016, but I'm trying not to let that stop me from finishing up this project. I wanted to start with the 'elephant in the room,' my December spreads. It's definitely the month that I've taken the most photos, so there was a lot to document. Plus, I decided early on not to take on a December Daily album project this year, so these pages are all that I'm documenting for the month.
I started off with my first page setting the tone for the entire month. I typically try to choose a multicolored card that can set my color scheme, and I did that with the multicolored starburst card in the second row. From there, I chose other tags to coordinate with that one to fill the remainder of my pages. The bright color scheme worked perfectly for the things that we did this month, including a trip to Hawaii and Disneyland.
I kept my embellishment quite simple, but used a lot of stamps to create and add to my filler tags. I love the Magic Journaling Cards no. 1 from In a Creative Bubble, and I was excited to use that 4" x 6" castle tag, embellished with just a few rhinestones.
Page four was all about the week leading up to Christmas, which I spent with my family, so I had lots of journaling to add. On the right side, I put my Christmas present tags in the pockets. My parents loved them, and took some of them home, so these were the leftovers.
My final page was all about the week after Christmas and my daughter's surgery. You might just see a little sneak peek on this page of fun things to come from Elle's Studio. Stay tuned!
I can't wait to wrap up 2016 in it's album. I guess I had better get to work documenting and filling those pockets!
