December scraptherapy plans

Yay: got my little December scraptherapy kit prepped and ready to go! It’s mainly bits from my stash, but I did add a few festive extras.

Here’s what I’ll be working with each day in December…

The base of my book will start out as all my scraptherapy books do: a selection of papers – including vellum, gift wrap, tissue and other genuine scrap – held together with binder rings.

Nice and simple, but the perfect backdrop for lots of layering, envelopes, shaker pockets etc.

My colour scheme was inspired by this hot pink ribbon from the WHSmith gift wrap department.

I’m never a red and green girl at Christmas (even our tree is white) so my December projects always reflect this.

The other bits that dictated the direction of my kit were these glitter number stickers and silver sequins, both from Poundland: cheap but very cheerful!

My papers and journalling cards are from last year’s Felicity Jane ‘Oh Deer!’ kit, which I adore – even the branding strips are awesome.

And then I just rummaged through my stash and pulled out literally anything in the right sort of colours – added to all my white tags and doilies, this little lot should keep me very happy!

And the cherry on the cake? This *adorable* Santa Baby puffy sticker set from Prima: I fell in love with it months ago and ordered quickly in case it sold out.

Just how cute is that adorable Santa with his high-heeled boots?

How about you? Which direction are you taking your festive documenting? What’s your colour palette going to be?

    Very pretty & very Suse! Glad to see back I’ve missed you. I’m using Ali Edward’s main kit & some things from Carta Bella’s Christmas. It’s very different from my usual style but I’m ready for something different.

      Hey, thanks dear Ginny! A change can be really good for us, can’t it? (Says she, who never budges from the same colour scheme for a single second, lol) xx

  2. Those puffy stickers are gorgeous! I also scrap December with pinks and not the traditional red and green colors as well….still so pretty and festive. I’m impressed that you have your box of stash already set up and cards made.

  3. I can’t wait to see your December album with all of these beautiful, pretty things Suse! I’m a red/black/white girl when it comes to my December albums so I LOVE seeing December albums in the colours you’ve chosen. I’ll be using Felicity Jane (of course!) and the Paislee Press kit too. x

  4. I love what you chose for your December album! I don’t celebrate the holidays, so I love seeing all the pretty non-traditional colors for a December album. I’ve only ever attempted a proper DD album once in 2016 and it didn’t work for me doing it a bit non-traditionally. I did a smaller December mini following an IG photo challenge for 2017 and I rather enjoyed that smaller scale project. I’m not sure if I’m going to attempt another December album this year though, and if I do it’s gonna be small since I don’t do very much in December! I have quite a bit of Crate Paper’s Snow & Cocoa left over though, so maybe I’ll put it to some use and follow suit in doing a little scrap therapy album. IDK, we’ll see. Can’t wait to see how your little book turns out!

      Ooh, I loved the Snow & Cocoa line! Those pom-poms…
      I think finding a project and format that works for you is essential. It’s such a busy time of year, but as Ali said in her ‘Crafty Ass Female’ interview today, it’s good to slow down enough to notice your life and reflect.
      That’s what helps me: processing how I feel about things (not to mention getting that precious time away from everyone else – an introvert festive essential!) xxx

    Santa is suuuper cute! Lovely kit you have there.
    (I don’t do any kind of DD, December will be just a part of my mini Project life album and the colors will be based on photos)
