I had it all finished except for adhering some photos so I got that finished today. I had two photos from Thanksgiving that
I wanted to include so I got these Flip Flop fasteners out. I adhered the two photos together back to back.
There are quite a few Flip Flops on a sheet (2 sheets to a package). I'm not sure if you can see them in the photos as they are clear.
I adhered the Flip Flop the photo on the back of the photo I wanted to show first. Fold the Flip Flop back on itself & position the photo.
I used the Flip Flops here too. Lots of snow photos this year.
Done. I do plan to go back and add embellishments. But the album can stand on it's own if I never get back to it for which I am very happy!
Notes for next year:
Print Cathy Zielske's templates per instructions for a 6 x 6 album. I did find out though that I did enjoy working in an 8 x 8 album size which I may choose for other future projects.
Have pages ready to go before November 1st.
Gather possible embellishments through the year.
There are some things I am going to be grateful for each and every year and are a given. I plan to take photos or gather photos of those topics prior to November. Photo printing slowed the project way down so I'd like to have a head start on those even if I don't end up using the photos for the project. The writing is what gives the album the voice of what I am thinking at feeling on that day.
I also plan to add one of the projects that I shared through the month to next year's preparation for Thanksgiving. I like being so much more intentional and thoughtful about Thanksgiving. It's carried over into December and I like that.
I hope to be back shortly with an update on my Holiday Album.
How are your Christmas preparations coming?
