December Album Pages 1-4 | Lottie Loves Paper | Crate Paper Hey Santa

Friday 27 November 2020


Hi everyone! I'm so very excited to start sharing the foundation pages of my December Album 2020. I have done a December Album for many years now and it's always the most wonderful project and I really look forward to it every year.

Last year I did all my journaling digitally, mostly directly onto my photos. Whilst I love the look, I didn't enjoy the many hours I spent in front of my computer so this year I'm going back to my usual style of foundation pages that are very open, with lots of space for photos and handwritten journaling.

I love my mini books to be interactive and to be full of interesting things. I'll therefore be reaching for vellum, acetate, sequins and pom poms as well as my usual paper crafting supplies.

I'm using a mixture of Hey Santa by Crate Paper and Merry & Bright by Cocoa Vanilla Studio, both available at Lottie Loves Paper. For these first few pages, my Merry & Bright supplies hadn't arrived so these ones just feature Hey Santa.

I've used some metal ties to make the trees on my front cover and to make the 'merry' on page 2. I usually organise my album so that for each set of pages, I have one white background and one patterned background. Some of my pages this year will be full 6x8, whereas some will be split pocket pages, like Page2.

As I mentioned above, I love to have some interactive elements in my albums. Page 2 features a vellum overlay that flips up to reveal the journaling spot underneath and the number.

For my numbers this year I have digitally made my own. I purchased the digital version of the Hey Santa papers and used these to create number circles that I then print and cut on my Silhouette machine. Each will be backed with a glittery circle - because you can never have enough sparkle at Christmas :)

Thanks so much for joining me today and I hope you have enjoyed these first few pages. There will be more in a few days time.

Happy scrapping

Niki xx
