Merry, Merry, Merry Moments with Nathalie Leonelli

Hello crafty friends! It’s Nathalie here today to share some pocket page inspiration using the November release items. I love the extras this month and used several favorites, like the amazing Acrylic Christmas Light Bulbs and perfect Very Merry Chipboard Stickers, to document part of December 2019 in my 9″ x 12″ family album.

I added a 4″ x 12″ insert (cut from a bigger page protector) which allowed me to use the large Merry and Bright Wood Veneer front and center! It looks fabulous paired with the Acrylic Christmas Light Bulbs. I repeated this great combination of acrylic and wood veneer on my title card as well. 

For both pockets, I hand stitched a garland string with black embroidery thread. I love the contrasting result! Often, while I am working with a certain color combination, I check the monthly printables to see if any tags match my page. It’s great to have extra options and in this case I found two in the Merry Printables. You do not need any special software! I just dragged and dropped the two I wanted in a Word document and sent to my printer.

I relied a lot on the Very Merry Chipboard Stickers to embellish my photos, but I also had fun with the stamps—especially the Christmas Tabs Stamp along with the packed Autumn Die Cut Tabs. I used them together in several spots selecting just the right tab color and the right word strip amongst the multitude of choices.

I hope you are having fun with your November goodies! Like me, you will love documenting your December with them, a past one, or the one starting tomorrow! Happy December and happy crafting!
