Hi, All! Alissa here with you today with something a little different this month. I’m sharing my December Traditions SN@P! Binder created with the awesome DIY Christmas collection. Rather than a December Daily, which I do work on every year, along with my Life Documented weekly spreads, I thought some of you might not want to do the daily or weekly documentation during the holidays. IT is a very busy time, after all. This book is something you can add to each year as you celebrate your annual traditions with your family.
The cover is pretty simple with a layering of a banner, star and mini clothespin from the Bunting Banner kit, a kraft scalloped piece from the original DIY Kraft Card Foundations and a tag from the Tags & Twine kit.
I included a title page, rather than a more intricate cover, just because I feel this book will get handled more, being something that is added to on a yearly basis.
This page was totally inspired by one I saw last holiday season. The circles all layered up in the shape of the Christmas Tree is just so fun!
For each section I created a simply decorated divider page with a banner piece from the Bunting Banner kit popped up for dimension on foam strips.
Each section of the book is filled with the different styles of SN@P! Pocket Pages and cards and tags and brads and stickers from this awesome line of Christmas goodness.
Photo sizes included throughout the book are 3x4, 4x6 and 6x8. I love splitting photos into different pockets, too. So, don’t feel you need to only use 3x4, if you’re working with a pocket page od 4 3x4 pockets.
Here’s another divider page with a cute tree from the Bunting Banner kit popped up and a popped up star from the Advent Bits & Pieces kit.
For this page I cut the cute circle tree from a paper in the 6x6 Paper Pad and the snowflake is from the Bunting Banner kit, again. J I painted the back of the snowflake with some gold paint and attached it to the outside of the pocket with a brad from the Decorative Brads pack. To cover the brad on the back, I popped up a circle die cut from the A2 Card Layers pack.
The journal card here was cut from one of the ledger pages that come with the SN@P! Binder and a strip cut from one of the black & white pages also included with the binder. Just add a few word and letter stickers and a chipboard arrow sticker and you’ve got a cute little journal card.
Here I included one of the gift tags from the Tags & Twine set for another cute place to add some journaling.
My challenge to you all is to think outside the box and see what you can create using products meant for one thing in a completely different way.
I hope you've enjoyed my DIY Christmas December Traditions SN@P! Binder today!
Have a great day!
