This year I am starting a Christmas through the years album. It will be similar to the December Daily approach except that i’m not planning on taking a photo a day. Instead, I’m focusing on how we celebrate the season and telling the bigger stories in more detail. I don’t want to stress myself out by setting an expectation to document a photo/ story a day.
I am using a big 12 x 12 album and hope I can fit at least five years of Christmas documentation in this album. I will be using a variety of Project Life page protectors and inserts.
I also pulled a bunch of stuff from my stash: stamps, ink pads (red, green and black) washi tape, and pens. I am storing everything in a 12 x 12 paper box.
I might add a photo in the bottom right corner, after we take a good Christmas photo.
To help get some ideas going for this project, I put together a list of the possible stories I want to document this year.
decorating the house | getting a Christmas tree | sending Christmas cards | going to a Christmas concert | going to see a movie | baking Christmas cookies | making empanadas | going ice skating | wrapping Christmas presents | watching Christmas movies | drinking hot chocolate and marshmallows | seeing Christmas lights |
That’s it for now! Next week I hope to have the next layout finished.
