Countdown 2 Christmas – Day 20


Welcome to day 20 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!

Day 20 is all about those last minute shopping trips…there are only 5 days until Christmas after-all!  I do the majority of my shopping online, so most of the anticipation is waiting on a delivery truck to arrive.  But I do venture out to find those small stocking-stuffer gifts and of course staples for holiday baking:

#scrapbooking #countdown2christmas #ppc2c #merryandbright #papercrafting @shellyemcdaniel @pinkpaislee #pinkpaisleeIn keeping with the theme of my album, I used the Learning Curve Font to create my journal entry.

#scrapbooking #countdown2christmas #ppc2c #merryandbright #papercrafting @shellyemcdaniel @pinkpaislee #pinkpaisleeThe “naughty” and “nice” cardstock stickers were added to the outside of the plastic sleeve with foam adhesive; the stickers are perfect for those gifting photos!  The red fabric bows gave a nice accent to the bottom of both banners.

#scrapbooking #countdown2christmas #ppc2c #merryandbright #papercrafting @shellyemcdaniel @pinkpaislee #pinkpaisleeI die-cut and added the round photo above the card insert.  It will be fun to look back years from now and see the prices and what was bought!

#scrapbooking #countdown2christmas #ppc2c #merryandbright #papercrafting @shellyemcdaniel @pinkpaislee #pinkpaisleeOn the opposite page I decorated the clear divider page with a pocket for my lists and receipts.  Make even more pockets for other places in your album; they’re great for tucking recipes, handwritten letters to Santa and extra photos into.

#scrapbooking #countdown2christmas #ppc2c #merryandbright #papercrafting @shellyemcdaniel @pinkpaislee #pinkpaisleeTo make the pocket I started with a 7.5″W X 11″H piece of patterned paper.  I placed the paper horizontally onto a score board and scored at 7″ and 7.25″ (I’ve marked the lines above); fold along both score marks.

#scrapbooking #countdown2christmas #ppc2c #merryandbright #papercrafting @shellyemcdaniel @pinkpaislee #pinkpaisleeIf you’re not in need of a roomy pocket, then you may opt not to use the foam adhesive.  I placed large foam adhesive squares just at the sides of the pocket and then adhered it to the back.  The pocket was then attached to the clear divider page with high tack adhesive.

#scrapbooking #countdown2christmas #ppc2c #merryandbright #papercrafting @shellyemcdaniel @pinkpaislee #pinkpaisleeThe front of the pocket was decorated with one of the die-cut cards, followed by glitter sticker letters from the Sentiment Series.  Two glitter stars were added on each side and embellished with a red enamel dot.
