2013 Holiday Card Mini Album

I've always been a fan of hanging onto paper goods (in elementary school, it was Valentine's cards from the class party), and holiday cards are right up there. In my December mini albums of prior years, I included holiday cards that we received in the back of each album, but for 2013, I decided to drop the part of the mini album where I documented December and only kept the holiday cards we received bound in the mini album. (I didn't document our Decembers on a daily basis before anyway, just notable happenings during the month, so I felt like our Decembers weren't that exciting).

The front and back covers are a clear embossed white Bazzill cardstock, which I sprayed with Glimmer Mists and also die cut the title with the Silhouette. I included our 2013 holiday card at the beginning, though I also scrapbooked it separately (2013 Holiday Card Layout), as well as a couple pictures of Evie from the photo shoot (Evie 2013 Holiday Photo Layout). I may go back and do some brief journaling on the blank holiday card, but I'm good with it as-is too. For the binding, I used a strip of accordion-folded cardstock, like on the mini album in this Mini Album Foundations post. The accordion fold binding works well for smaller mini albums, but can get a little wonky with too many items.

Next up is to tackle the 2014 holiday card mini album. I may work back in some December highlights beyond just including the holiday cards, but something more scaled back than in prior years.
