Countdown 2 Christmas – Day 12


Welcome to day 12 of Pink Paislee’s Countdown 2 Christmas Event!  If you are just joining us you might want to go back and read all about our 25 day event HERE and HERE.  We want you to be ‘in the know’ about all of the free printables and weekly giveaways!

We’re about half way to the Big Day and I don’t know about you but I have been so inspired and delighted by all these pages and projects. Today we’re documenting reading a holiday classic. Or in our house: classicS.  We love books and I have a self-admitted “problem” with buying more.  I love this time of year when I gather up our holiday stories and make a tradition of reading at least one every night before bed.  It gets everyone in the holiday spirit and most of these stories have lovely reminders of family, love, peace and joy.

Today’s pages show a handful of our Holiday Favorites:

I took photos of my husband reading to the kids (because those sweet snuggles won’t last forever!) and the books themselves.  Some of our favorites are older classics and others are modern tales that have found a special place in our hearts.

I adhered lots of layers to the left side, right on top of the acrylic page.  The double sided pattern papers make designing on clear plastic easy… you see the pattern on the back of the page and can add more layers, using both the patterns glued on top and the patterns showing through from the other side.

I wanted to remember some of the best parts of our favorite holiday books and created this small insert book for the meaningful pages.  I just photographed the pages with “warm fuzzies”, cropped them, and printed them on regular printer paper so the book was flat enough to include.  Now, even when my kids have outgrown the books we will be able to look back and see a small part of them.

    I love the idea of making your own small book with pieces of the Christmas readings – we have a few faves too, that must be read every year. I’m going to do just like you to preserve the memory even better! Thanks for sharing your work.
    Oh I’d love to have a copy of The Grinch some day – love it, but can’t get it as book in Denmark. Google will help me and maybe some day it’ll be in our repertoire!

    Love this wonderful grown up advent calendar 😀
