Hey guys :o) SP here with you today…with a much happier post than the last one I shared :o) So…how AWESOME does it feel to be at the end (well, almost) of 2012′s project SCRAP?! IF you have kept up with us…then you basically have your entire twenty twelve album FINISHED :o) All that is left are the covers (and then printing, of course)! No worries…we’ll be sharing those covers with you next week (and they are gorgeous…I think you’ll love them)! And, if you haven’t been keeping up…then this is your chance to download ALL of the templates before they are gone (don’t worry…they’ll still be up for a bit)…and to get CAUGHT UP before we are too deep into 2013 :o) There really is still time! Even if you are several months behind…YOU CAN DO IT :o) Trust me when I say that it feels so good to have another year scrapped, well…mostly (yeah, I still have a few extra pages to work on)…and to NOT have that feeling like, oh dear…I am going to forget all of these memories and details before I ever get the photos scrapped (I’m sure you know just what I’m talking about, lol)! There will ALWAYS be more photos and layouts to scrap (oh how I know this to be true, lol)…but to get all of the ‘big’ stuff and memories scrapped ‘in the moment’ (or close to the moment)…and before all is forgotten…that is huge! And…again, KNOWING that there will always be the next huge event or birthday or holiday (or whatever) to scrap…it’s best to stay as current as possible…or at some point – it will all just be too overwhelming to ‘go back’ and ‘catch-up’ :o) Right? :o) Anyhoo – that’s my pep talk for today…but I truly believe in what I say…because I’ve lived it (both ways, lol) – and just love feeling like I am ‘on top’ of my scrapping (for the most part)! You will, too!
So…with all of that said…let’s get to the December pages :o) If you missed them – be sure to download them HERE! They are gorgeous and so perfect for all of your holiday photos! I’m sure that many of you are like me…and ended up with LOTS of EXTRA photos to scrap in December…it’s just that kind of month, eh?! So, I still have to work on some ‘extra pages’ – and just tried to get an assortment of photos on the template layouts! With these pages…I really like the idea of using the ‘multi-photo’ page to duplicate for more December/holiday photos. Did that make sense? So…if you have lots of extra photos like me…just take that multi-photo page and use it again twice to make another two page spread. It gives you LOTS of spots for photos…and you could even rotate to give them a ‘new’ look! Just an idea if you would like to fit in more photos (that rings true for just about any of our templates/months) :o)
Alrighty…so let’s move on to some inspiration :o) I’ve included quite a bit here as there was no way to choose favorites! I did leave some in the gallery for you to find on your own, lol – and you’ll definitely want to as they are GORGEOUS! It’s always so fun for me to see the different ways in which we all interpret the templates :o)
As I said…my pages are just a mish-mash of the month…we had Christmas and a big family vacation to the mountains and LOTS of other stuff going on…
Amber’s layouts are just beyond gorgeous…I love the snowy trees and all the kid-happy-fun pics :o) And the silhouetted nativity…wow! STUNNING :o) Thanks, Amber!
Kylie’s month looks pretty wonderful, too :o) Lots of food and family and entertainment (and spectacular layouts, too)! LOVE IT – thanks, Kylie!
Finally, pqtn’s layouts just jumped out at me…loved the color palette and paper blocking…all of her gorgeous layering…and the wonderful photos, too! Fabulous job – THANK YOU :o)
So there you have it…our almost-last project SCRAP 2012 check-in, lol :o) I’ll be back here with you next week for the FINAL check-in where I share the album cover templates with you guys! They are like the ‘icing on the cake’ :o) The perfect way to ‘top-off’ another year of scrapping together!
That’s it for me today…thanks for following along! Be sure to check back next week for more wonderful and inspirational posts (and LOTW on Monday)! Have a beautiful and blessed weekend everyone :o) XOXO — SP!
