Happy New Year to all my lovely followers. One thing I’d love to do more of in 2023 is memory keeping, so I’m starting as I mean to go on, and sharing a memory keeping page I created with the recent Time for Tea Designs mini-release, capturing some of our favourite Christmas traditions.
For the page itself, I cut a piece of cardstock to fit my 8×6 T4TD binder, then lined it with one of the digital patterned papers from the new release (here). I created a pocket about 3 x 6.5″, scored it along the bottom and two sides, and cut it diagonally along the top edge. I adhered it to the page along the scorelines. Next, I stamped the tree from the Christmas Memories stamp set (here) along the bottom, and added little gold stars along the tops of each tree. Finally, I stamped “Christmas Memories” from the same set in the top right of the page.
For the inserts, I used the Square Label dies (here) to cut out tags from various patterned papers from the Holly Jolly paper pack, which I glued back-to-back, and then added photos of some of our favourite holiday memories (also cut with the square label dies). I used gold embossing powder to create sentiments and embellishments from the Christmas Memories and Santa Stop Here stamp sets (here) and added these to my tags. To finish, I added some ribbon to the tops.
I’m so pleased with how this page turned out! I can’t wait to start the next one!
Wishing you all a happy, crafty 2023!
