Documenting December | Pinkfresh Studio 'December Days' | Agnus Kasprzak

Hi again :) Christmas is almost here and I have been busy documenting all the festivities using Pinkfresh Studio's December Days collection. 


Making room for a few 4x6" photo forced me to change my regular design A page format that I have used all year, but happy with the way it makes the larger photos stand out. 



Adding more of the gorgeous embellishments that I have used in my previous pages has made creating filler cards a breeze. The wooden buttons and foiled die-cuts have especially been my faves. 


It wouldn't be Christmas without the annual Santa photo! I used a cluster of die-cut and puffy sticker presents to cover up a stool that I didn't like in the bottom of the photo. 


Using one of the puffy sticker sayings directly over one of my photos. This works especially well when there are no people in the pics.


Using smaller embellishments directly over the photos to add a pop of colour


Going back to the Design A format to record more December memories. The gold foiled cardstock helped to balance out the warmer tones in my photos. 



Creating a cute little Christmas scene using some of the elements from the collection for a custom made filler card. 


Adding a flat ornament from your tree or even a tag from your wrapping is a good way to make your December pages more personalised.

I absolutely LOVE this collection! I have been able to create so many projects with it! It has suited my photos perfectly! Why not go and get it from the Sassy store so you too can create cute projects like I have!

I have used lots of the chipboard stickers on this layout to go with the awesome cut file I used. The cut file is from Just Nick Studio. I like how I could fill in some of the wholes using embellishments!  

I was so glad that the pink house chipboard sticker could be used on this layout! It goes with the pink and green my niece is wearing in my photo perfectly! 

I was going to add some machine stitching to this layout, but in the end I decided it had enough going on so I left it off!

Documenting December | Pinkfresh Studio December Days

Hello again :) I'm excited that December is finally here and that I can start documenting my favourite time of year with lots of gorgeous goodies from Pinkfresh Studio's December Days collection. 


I am using my regular project life album to document the month with inserts and extras like the ones I shared in my previous post added in to record all the festivities. 


And because it's a new month, I have created a title card with a row of fussy cut trees cut from one of the 12x12" papers from the collection along with a couple of puffy stickers. I printed out my title and mounted it onto some foiled cardstock to help it stand out on the patterned background. 


I have again added gold foiled vellum and foiled cardstock to tie in with the gold accents from the collections and also to add some warmth to my pages. I tied some gold string from my Xmas wrapping onto a couple of layered tags from the die-cuts pack and used one of the cute wooden buttons to add dimension to create an easy filler card and used black alpha stickers and puffy star to add interest to a simple photo.  


Adding a 6x12" insert that I cut down from a full sized page protector to hold more photos. 


Once again, layering a mix of textures to create another filler card. The chipboard frames really help to define the focal point inside the pockets. 


Shaker cards are great for Christmas pages and adding little bits & pieces from your decorations or wrapping is a good way to add a personal touch to your albums - I used my fuse tool to seal a glittered feather  from the adjoining photo along with a handful of sequins to create a fun shaker card. You could also use washi tape, stickers or stitching to seal the top of your pockets.
