Roll on 1st December

Now I've finally worked out how to add photos to my blog posts, I thought I'd add a few of my preparations for the Journal Your Christmas class that I'm taking (http://www.shimelle.com/).

Here's the cover - it's a 6 x 12 American Crafts album, and I love it!




Here is my numbering system - I've been doing about ten each night, as they're quite labour-intensive, but I am definitely happier with these than the others I tried! I can't wait for the class to get started and to see what others are doing.






I chose 6x12 as a happy compromise between size (and therefore amount of space to fill) and the amount of time I'm likely to have. What's your favourite scrapping size? Anyone tried 8.5 x 11? This seems to be fairly popular in the States...

Ah the old 'take a picture on the window sill' trick! That's just what I am about to do with my preparations!!
Is your album fabric covered? It looks lovely.
Mine is an 8 x 8, mainly because it's one I had already and I thought 12 x 12 might be hard to fill. I really hope to finish on time (ish) so I am doing everything for an easy life and keeping the whole thing simple.

Love your numbers! And your album size should be fun. I feel so unprepared; haven't started pulling anything together yet!

Great album and numbers - I have ordered the red album (I think??) and the traditional kit - rushed into kit buying as so worried they would sell out and having set my heart on one didnt want to miss out - seeing your link to the love elsie stuff makes me wish I had gone for that instead....as well.... :lol: - great blog - bookmarked for future inspiration :)

I love the numbers. I bought a 12x12 sheet with numbers on which I have attached to my pages. I have since received a different set on a 12x12 sheet which I like better but it's too late.

The album is lovely and the numbers stunning! Yes I can see they are time consuming but beautiful and well worth the time invested

I very much agree, your numbers are totally gorgeous! I haven't started mine yet - but have done a few pages using Shimelle's templates. Roll on 1st Dec!
