Christmas 2013 Album #1

 I completed this album the weekend that I was away on retreat, May 2 to 5.  I used the SEI Mayberry collection to complete this album, it's a travel themed collection but I don't think you would know it by looking at these layouts. Plus I did a little stamping and sewing and added a few hexagon embellishments and brads.
This album, along with another, will be packed away until December, that's when I will pull them out and go through my photos for the year to fill them up. I give 2 albums for Christmas, one to my father in law and one to my mother.
Here it is, all 20 pages! This is an 8x8 album and I used Scrapbook Generation 1 page sketches to complete it. I sorted the pages by 1 photo, 2 photo, etc... but I won't put them in the album in this order, it's just easier for counting photos when Christmas gets here to have them sorted like this.

1 photo layouts

2 photo layouts

3 photo layouts

4 photo layouts

5 photo layouts

You prolly noticed that I added the dimensions for the photos, some of the mats will be used as mats and others are just place markers so that I will know what size to cut the photos. I still have some embellishments left and once I decide on the photos in December then I will decide if I need to add any additional embellishments.

Do you make Christmas albums for anyone? Do you wait till December to make them?
I usually make several pages each month and then by December I have them all done, but because of school this year I decided to make both albums while I was on retreat. I will share the other one next week.
I hope my endeavors inspire you to share your crafting with others!

Thanks for visiting my blog today!!
