December Daily – Ideas

Hello there, it’s Krista here again! The big day is just around the corner now – 12 days until Christmas! I hope you’ve been working on your album throughout the month.

If you’re like me you might be running out of innovative ideas to showcase your photos + stories. Today we’d like to share some inspiration and ideas for documenting those pictures + words.

After scouring Pinterest I found some awesome ideas:

*Create flip it-ups or fold-outs to add extra photos to pages without adding more pages or protectors…
