The Inspired Notebook: Cherished Christmas

Does your home ever feel empty after the Holidays? Whether you're missing your family or the decorations this is a great project to fill that gap! When decorating our home I often incorporate photos and sentiments from our life. Each photo brings back favorite memories and surrounds us with the ones we love. 

These cuties happen to be our nieces who make our lives full of Love and Joy. Follow the steps below to create your own Cherished Christmas Memorabilia. 

Cherished Christmas Project

  1. Prepare your photos - I clipped my photos into the Reindeer Games Photo Wallets in Photoshop - watch this easy video tutorial

  2. Print your photos - I placed each photo wallet onto a blank letter size base in Photoshop and printed it out on photo paper

  3. Embellish your photos - I added each photo wallet to card stock or scrapbook paper base. Then I add photo corners and paper tabs to mix it up

  1. Kristi - Those are so pretty! I love the colors. My house always looks extra bare after taking down the Christmas decorations! I kind of like it for the new year and my need to get organized, but it also seems a little less homey.

    1. Laura,
      I know just what you mean. I do appreciate more space (hint Christmas Tree stored) and less clutter after the Holidays.

  2. Preciosa la idea, me encanta la corona con fotos!un abrazo grande.
