Need a gift for the merry-maker who has it all? Why not construct a whimsical December Days Scrapbook Album & Journal using the “Jingle All the Way” Collection and accessories! There are so many ways to go about building one of these handy organizers, but I hope that you can grab a few new ideas to incorporate!
I also have a YouTube video available of the complete walk-through how I made the pocket pages.
My main focus was the 6X8 paper pad papers, so I built the album around that. I cut two cover papers to 6.5”X8.5” and corner rounded the edges. On the front cover I did add a journal card, washi tape and various die-cuts prior to laminating. I used a heat laminator and a 5 mil laminate on the papers and then trimmed to size.
Before binding, I organized the 6X8 papers from the paper pad and crafted four pocket pages.
To create the pocket pages: score a 12X12 piece of double-sided paper at 6”; turn and score at 8”. Fold in half along the 6” mark and make a slanted cut at the spine, from the bottom up to the 8” score mark. This makes it easier for the pocket to fold. This process is a part of the video!
After stacking all of the pages in order I used a CINCH binding system and 1” metal comb to bind everything together.
The front cover was embellished with a couple of adhesive brads and puffy sticker. I also added a gift tag, laminated charm die-cuts and a bow with a bell!
Now onto the embellishing of the pages:
Many components from the Jingle All the Way Collection were used throughout the project: Collection Kit, 6X8 Paper Pad, Foam Stickers, Chipboard Stickers, Adhesive Brads, Sticker Book, Journal Bits, Bits & Pieces, Number Bits, Washi Tape, SN@P Cards and Enamel Dots. Again, I have a complete walk-through and tips on how I put this album together on my YouTube Channel…I hope you’ll watch!
Thanks for joining!
