2015 December Memories Album

This year I am going with a 12X12 Album for what I am calling Our December Story. I havent even finished my two mini albums from last year and I think it was because I had to choose only a few photos for each page since it was a small album.  This year I will be able to add more photos, embelishments, and journaling.  I will also be able to put possibly 3 to 4 Christmas memories in the album.

Here is my cover, it doesnt scream Christmas but it works for me and I truly do love it.

 I started off by taking this wood embellishments that I got from Micheal's and removed the foam from the back and painted them with one coat of white paint.
 I used paints in these colors
Apple Barrel paint in white
Martha Stewart satin in Artichoke
Martha Stewart Metalic grey
Craft Smith in brown
 I only used one coat of the shimmery green and shimmery brown after the white pain was dry.

I also added a glossy finish after the pain was dry as well.
 After the snowflakes were dry I added a layer of versa mark ink and sprinkled WOW embossing powder in the color Silver Pearl.

I used the tweezers to hold onto it while the heat tool melted the powder.
 Kinda laying out my layout before I glued it down.

The alphas are from American Crafts in the font Jewelry Box.

I used a combonation of Multi Matte Medium and foam square to addhere everything.
 Using a quick stick to add my gems onto the tree really helps and make this process super quick and easy.
