{now on sale} christmas countdown scrapbook kit

It all started when I decided that I wanted to document December and the days leading up to Christmas.  I've attempted this project the last few years without being able to complete it.  So, this year I designed a kit from my idea of what I could realistically accomplish.

My plan:  to have one page represent one day from December 1-25th.  Since I tend to prefer two page spreads, but knew I wouldn't be able to make it work for this project, I went about creating different types of pages so each day will look flattering side by side.  I handmade paper and vellum pocket pages and tags, found pretty envelopes, handmade custom pocket pages (page protector style), designed and cut 4x6" graphics to layer with photos or use as a divider in between two sheets of patterned paper and so on.  Of course my plan may change once I start assembling the skeleton on my book, but for now I'm pretty happy with the idea.  Here's what's included in the kit:

  • 25 double sided Glitz Design Finnley papers cut to 4x6 inches
