Welcome to the Life's Celebrations MemoryWorks Blog Hop sponsored by Simple Stories! If you are just joining in, the fun starts at MemoryWorks and takes you through thirteen other blogs. A prize will be given to one lucky commenter (from all the blogs along the hop). The more blogs you comment on, the better odds you have to win.
|The blog hop officially begins at 11 AM EST.|
I have two projects to share with you today. Both were made with the Simple Stories 25 Days of Christmas kit:
|Simple Stories: 25 Days of Christmas|
First on the agenda...a coffee sleeve mini-album that will guide me through Christmas planning (I need lists, people! Getting forgetful at the old age of thirty-three!):
|A Christmas Planner: Coffee Sleeve Mini-Album|
Can you believe it once looked like this...
|Don't throw away those coffee sleeves...upcycle them!|
I made eight pages in all, including one hidden pocket page. Do you see it? (Hint: No Peeking)
|It's never too early to start planning the holidays!|
Ready for the eight page reveal?
And my second project is a gift I'm giving my eight-year-old. It's an "All I Want for Christmas" notebook where she can record (surprise, surprise) all the things that are on her Christmas wish list.

I used cardboard from a cereal box for the cover, assorted paper scraps for the inside and The Cinch to put it all together.
|A close-up of the cover page.|
|A look at the back cover.|
To prove that I used scrap paper for the notebook, have a look at the not-so-perfectly sized pages:
|Yes, I've been digging into my paper scrap bin!|
