Holidays are coming, holidays are coming... {foundation pages}

I'm super excited to be flying the flag for the UK as a member of The Stamp Spot's (Australia) Documenting December Design Team 2014. I am working with the shops main kit which is a very festive and in vogue - GOLD!

I'll be adding my December pages right into my existing Project Life album which is the Amy Tangerine Live the Life you Love, Love the Life you Live album. Although, this album is pretty full and I'm only up-to-date to September so I may split 2014 into two albums. Luckily I have a gold 12x12 WRMK album waiting in the wings.

A first for me this year is a bit of forward planning. I've been busy creating a stock of 4x6 and 3x4 cards that I can slip into my album during December. Everything you see in this blog post is from The Stamp Spot's main Documenting December 2014 kit.

This is my title card for December. I chopped three elements from the kit - the embossed bauble, the white doily and the gold tag to fit onto this 4x6 card. I added a piece of twine, ribbon, some alphas and that lovely Santa flair badge (the flair badges are actually made by the owner of The Stamp Spot - Michelle).

I'm storing my cards in a 12x12 divider so I can see them easily - right now I have a couple of page protectors that look like this.


I've kept my designs pretty simple, it's a busy time of year and keeping things simple helps me stay on track. When I decide on a design I like I run with it until I get bored. One design you'll see throughout the cards I have made so far is to cut a doily into four and use the pieces to mount the dates on. 

I've added some sequins to this doily to give it a little texture. Adding a doily quarter to my cards is really helpful as a starting point.
For more inspiration pop over to The Stamp Spot blog where other members of the design team are sharing their albums and preparations for documenting December.
