This time I’m sharing a tips for holiday albums. I shared these on Instagram in early December, but if you are like me and are making your album in January, you can use them now!
We're going to talk holiday albums for this week's #nndailytip If your goal is to complete a page / spread for a holiday album daily, like for @aliedwardsdesigninc's December Daily, fewer product options and simpler pages will help cut down your time spent on each page. For my 2014 album, I used base patterned papers in a book I made ahead of time and only a @shopfreckledfawn kit to embellish. This year I'm taking my time, working on my album in batches, and using a wide variety of products. But if you need a time saver, limiting product options for yourself is the way to go.
Right now #nndailytip is all about holiday albums. My first time participating in @december_daily was in 2009. I didn't finish my album and gave up after I failed at taking a photo each day. A few years later, I realized that I didn't need the self imposed "rules" that were holding me back. I used emails, notes, and my calendar to fill in the empty days, often without photos. It remains my favorite holiday album. Don't give up! It's never to late. Make it work for you.
Another #nndailytip with holiday albums! Transparent pages add depth into your album, but often people wonder what to do on the back of the page if you add on journaling, photos, or embellishments. Just match up on the back! Even similar sized pattern paper works. Using punches or working on both sides at once do you can trace shapes onto patterned paper is helpful!
