Added journaling to that striped paper (that's why the stripes are there) and paired it with a photo of our holiday envelopes before they went out the door. I mailed off 80 this year - a new record for us. Those green stickers are Thickers by Amy Tangerine.
Added a small photo to that kraft and white patterned paper of my envelope stuffing in progress. Also included an empty envelope to the book to show how I taped them up.
Those little shape stickers are by Studio Calico and I thought they added a fun touch of color. I added machine stitching to finish off the photo.
On the front of the envelope, I stamped our current address stamp (smudged out here for privacy) and included the sticker that came with my holiday stamps as a mock stamp. In the real book, I have our actual holiday card added between these pages, but I am saving that (some folks have probably not received them yet) and I'll be sharing on the blog Monday. With the card in there it's busy, so I left that great green and blue pattern untouched except for a flair button from Evalicious.
I've been taking a lot of candlelight photos and this instagram one was one of my favorites so far. To give it a bit more weight, I framed it with a Christmas frame from Studio Calico. Love the look of the cut-out joy and the stitching to hold it all together.
We already know repeating stamps are my go-to and the FOR THE LOVE OF stamp worked out well here to cover the piece of cardstock. I just filled in the boxes I could quickly think of, but you could easily fill them all up.
And then two tree light photos with white fabric Thickers on top. Love how this spread turned out even though it's really so simple.
Next update will be mid-week some time! Thank you for following along.
