Journal Your Christmas 2011

Yes, I have started! I am joining in with Shimelle's preparation weekend - details can be found on her blog here.

This evening I have cut all my background pieces of card and started on preparing a few pages - I intend to have some pages ready to go, just needing photos and journalling adding on the day and others will need a bit more adding to them.

I am using an 8x8 American Crafts postbound album that I have had sitting around in my stash for around a year. I need more page protectors and extender posts for it and have ordered them this evening from Sarahs Cards. Once I have all of them I shall pop all my pages in to keep them tidy!
Having bought Shimelle's kit for the main album I felt that I ought to use some of my existing card for the backgrounds, so dived in and dragged out some red, green, blue and pink. The reds in the photo look a bit orange - in real life they are a very Christmassy red!

Off to make a few pocket pages now! Will share you with those tomorrow - hope to take some better photos in some 'proper' light!

You have made a great start with your album and kit shopping :) I think I might be leaning more towards a Dec Daily this year, but I'm always a last minute kind of girl, so we'll see :) I'm looking forward to seeing your pocket pages

Great start the moment I have the album, but have done nothing with it yet!

Ok - 3rd try. Lets see if the google account works because the typepad one sure isn't.
Looks like you've got a great start on it. I haven't done anything yet but I do know what album I'll be using so that's one thing. :)
