2011 Holiday Album

 It is that time of year again, to begin our countdown till Christmas.  I will be giving away a full 8 x 8 template album for your holiday memories.  As I did last year, visit my blog each day and collect a template to complete your album.  Each day I will be giving away 1 template.  The download will only be available for 1 day.  So be sure you check back here everyday.  On Christmas Day, you will have your full set which includes a front and back cover, 25 photo templates and an additional bonus template to add as extra journaling or a showcase photo.

This holiday album is a beautiful way to preserve 25 days of your life this holiday season. This simple digital design helps you get your photos in an album and done. Take one or several photos a day from December 1 through Christmas and create a page for each day. The day is already marked with these templates. There is room for lots of journaling and included is a bonus page for a full page photo OR a full page of journaling.  You can also print this bonus page as a blank page to glue mementos, receipts, lists and handwritten treasures, that you have collected or you family has created. 

Here are some great examples of what you can put in your album:

Holiday decorating photos

Holiday Lights

Non-related everyday life photos

Christmas letters to Santa
(can include the handwritten letter too)

Advent Calendar

Shopping lists

Dinner menu 

Holiday Baking
Christmas lists

Holiday Parties
(actual invite is folded in red envelope)

Shopping trips

Your gift wrap
(glue scrap of your paper and tags to a page)
Tree ornaments

Snow Days


Holiday Songs, Poems or Quotes

Holiday cards from friends


Your family holiday card 

A written story 

Child's drawings

Here are your covers.  On Day 1, you will receive the front cover along with the "Day 1" template and the bonus template.  On Day 25, you will receive the back cover along with the "Day 25" template and the bonus template.

This is the bonus template you can use to create a 2 page layout along with the "Day" template.  Use this bonus template to showcase a photo on the left side and your "Day" template on the right side.

To use this as a photo template, just show the photo layer as circled here and hide the journal layer.
Here is the bonus template as a journal page.  To do this, just show the journal layer as circled here and hide the photo layer.
On each of the "Day" templates, you have the option of showcasing 1 photo, 2 photos, OR 3 photos.  In this example, I have my template as a 1 photo template by showing the 1 photo layer and hiding the remainder of the photo layers.
Here is an example of a "Day" template with the option of showcasing 2 photos.  I have 2 photo layers shown and the remainder of the photo layers hidden.
Here is an example of a "Day" template with the option of showcasing 3 photos.  I have 3 photo layers shown and the remainder of the photo layers hidden.
This year, I decided to use the same album as I did last year, the Bo Bunny's naked 6 x 6 Album. I love the ring binder and the option of decorating the outside cover.  I also like the small 6 x 6 size for this project so I will be reducing the size of my templates from 8 x 8 to 6 x 6.

I covered my album using paper from Lily Bee Designs from my local craft store and ribbon from Walmart.

Here is my cover from last year, 2010.

Check out my post from last year for a few album options
