White Pines Blog Hop Featuring the 12 Days of Christmas!

Welcome back for another blog hop!

My 12 Days of Christmas theme really evolved over the course of laying out just this one page, so let me show you how that happened...I started with my favorite theme--GOLD (5 golden rings) and the White Pines Picture My Life cards!  ;)

These gold Picture My Life Pocket Scrapbooking overlays have taken over my scrapbooking lately...they are so much fun!

Do you have just a few pics from an event that you still want to capture?  DO IT!  These pocket cards make it very doable...even if the pics aren't the BEST quality like mine...I didn't want to lose the memory though.

My partridge in a pear tree is a cute little bird found in the White Pines Complements...
...and the pear is found on the Harvest Wreath My Acrylix stamp set. I had so few pics of my girl for this layout that I had to take up space--and this just happened to fit quite well!  I used some patterned paper from the coordinating White Pines Paper Packet for the card too...

The barren winter tree and the little tag below are cut from the Cricut Art Philosophy Cartridge.
Oh my goodness, this was quite the development...I never dreamed I would be turning NOEL into NO teeth!  ;)

One simple way to add more pics to your layouts is to use Flip Flaps.  I adore these versatile page elements that attach with a strong adhesive directly to your page protector.  They are JUST as thick and sturdy as our CTMH page protectors too!  They come in all sorts of sizes--I used the 3 x 4 inch pocket to add this fun and interactive detail to my layout.  :)

If you are a pocket scrapper, you HAVE to get this awesome Dated My Acrylix Set!

These fantastic journaling cards can be used all on their own or blinged up with almost no extra time...

Another strange but fun Christmas song!  ;)

  1. I love your pocket scrapbooking page using the PML cards! And you just gave me the perfect way to embellish that Joy card! Been looking at it in my December Daily album, trying to figure out how I wanted to embellish it! So perfect and simple! Thanks Amie!

  2. Love all the touches of gold, Amie!!!

  3. Amy, adorable pocket page, what a fun idea

  4. Oh Amie, your whole post is gorgeous and just made me want to buy everything you used! I love all the gold, of course...and the way you used the Flip Flaps! I can't wait to get moved and try out all the CTMH stuff you used! ;)

  5. I almost missed the flip-flap revealing the lost tooth. So cute! My favorite thing is how you didn't let the lack of good pictures stop you from preserving the memory. All your extra touches surely make Rylie feel special when she looks at this.


Thank you for adding some sparkle to my day with your comments!
