I have cut down my papers and card to the same size as a page protector in the 8.5 x 11 album as some of the pages I don't want inside plastic sleeves. I kept the strip off the side of the paper and scored it in half and punched holes at the correct place using my Power punch, i t cuts a slightly bigger hole than the normal Cropadile, perfect for albums. You can also see I made myself a 'jig' to locate the holes like I did in my handbooks before.
I intend to stitch two pages together back to back after they are completed, for extra strength and add a folded hinge over the left side to reinforce the binder holes.
I have created a layout inspiration board over on Pinterest here, where I am adding any layouts that inspire me, or techniques I want to include. Also, don't forget my 2014 kit board here where I am adding anything I am using, including these great tags I found in IKEA. They fit in with my monochrome theme perfectly!
I have printed off some of the cards from Becky Higgins Digital Hello December kit by Stampin up! to use the neutral ones. I used light printable cardstock and I can use up the left over cards in my Project Life.
Today I have started prepping a few pages, including using an ABC list for December that I pinned to my board here.
I will be designing some cut files again this year that I will share like last year. Can't wait to get started! TFLx
