December kit layouts

Here are a couple more layouts that I made using my December kit. I have a couple more things to show you, but my flash batteries need to charge before I can do that. All of the patterned paper is by Echo Park.
For my Christmas albums, I really try to keep all of my pages simple. I usually have so many pictures and I would rather not detract from them. I don't really use any kind of techniques, either. But, when the album is all put together, I just seems better that way, at least to me. For this layout, the title letters are also from Echo Park, the buttons were in my stash and the ribbon is from Maya Road.
In this next layout  the title is made of Thickers from American Crafts, the mini Kraft bag is from Scrap Within Reach, the flowers and bauble are from Making Memories, the red ribbon is from Maya Road and the brown ribbon is from American Crafts.
Here is a close up of the mini kraft bag. What I did was make a little tag to go inside of it that listed the type of cookies that we baked this year. Thanks for looking!

  1. Love these pages! I like to keep my pages fairly simple and focused on the photographs most of the time...I like your use of strips of paper and tucking the tags behind things. I often make my photo mats *pockets* by adhering them only on 3 sides...then I tuck a tag or another photograph behind. Such a fun surprise--and you'll love knowing exactly which cookie you baked in the years to come! Thanks so much for sharing! karelj
