I'm excited to show you what I came up with!  

I love it when non-traditional and traditional things are mixed together. The Jolly Whimsy Stack is the perfect example of that!  There is traditional red and shiny gold paired with trendy, fun pink and aqua.  The icons are just off-traditional and drawn in a cute, cartoon style.


I got to work with the Wave Album by Clearsnap and I love this shape!  This bubbly shape was just right for these papers!  I wanted to keep some of the album clear, so I made this porthole page, which allows you to see a SNEAK peek of the pages before and after it.  VERY easy to make with two piece of paper and a circle cutter. :) 


This stack came with TONS of cut-out embellishments!  It is NO secret that I love these cut-out pages and the ones in this stack are stellar.  I was an especially big fan of the pages of large numbers and letters.  I used the candy striped letters to show the year in a big, bold statement.




I Used some dies and punches to add a little dimension to the next pages.  A little pinwheel die makes a darling focal and I used some DCWV glitter paper and a stocking punch to complete this page.



I wanted to show a little more of the clear acrylic on this page and I love the way it looks when a portion of the page  is left uncovered, so that's what I did here.  You can see the next page showing through in the close up above.




I plan on using this book for the pictures of this coming Christmas Eve.  I'm not much of a journaler, but I did mount a journaling card on the back of the book so I can include a thought or two.


Feeling inspired?
