Christmas in Birmingham

Standard

Christmas may seem a long time ago, but my CKC kit contains a few Christmas items so I decided to scrap the photos from our annual trip to the Birmingham German Market to get it used up.

The German Market is becoming a family tradition.  We always have a bratwurst and a photo with the Bull Ring Bull in its Christmas outfit.  I take very similar photos every year but I haven’t scrapped many of them, so I went with a 12X12 page and a 16 pocket divided page protector.

I used the 15 Jan sketch from Stuck?! and I’m really pleased with the way it turned out.  I made the 12X12 background with white card stock and gutted the plaid patterned paper at the beginning of the month; so that I could make my forgeries and cut out the little house for my 2018 Goals page.

I’m not quite so keen on the pocket page but it is growing on me.  I have eight more photos; close ups of the market stalls to fill the reverse of the pocket page, but I’m still thinking about what to do for the other pockets.

I’ve put the pages in my album for safe keeping and I noticed that the pocket page is larger than 12X12 and my American Crafts ring binder is only just big enough for it.  The divider is October Afternoon, so if anyone knows where I can get a slightly larger album than standard please let me know.I’m doing really well with this kit.  That’s 7 pages done and one almost there; plus another 5 half done.  That will be 13 in total when I’m finished.  I hope to get them all done for next weekend to share before the January linky closes.

  1. I have to admit that I only went to the Brum German Market once and it was so crowded that I never went again! But your photos make me curious to try it again next time I’m there at the right time! I love the layout and the Bull is really cute all Christmassed up! The pocket page is also lovely. I think you are doing a fabulous job with your kit and I can definitely feel some inspiration to consider making a Christmas page of my own.

    I moved from AC albums to the WRMK (American Crafts) faux leather albums. They are quite a bit bigger than the AC ones and four fit snuggly into a Kallax cubicle with a little room to spare on the side.

  2. Fabulous page, I love how you incorporated it into a spread with a pocket page – such a great combination! Thanks for joining us at Stuck?! Sketches!
