Christmas Scrapbook Page Numbers Option Two

JYC page numbers :: option two
Journal your Christmas page numbers - scrapbooking supplies
Oh! The glory of an internet connection! Let me catch up with you a bit.

We have moved, but we are still very much living in stacks of boxes. We’ll get there. We don’t have any internet or phone there yet, so thank goodness for the modern conveniences of mobiles and coffee shops with wifi and all such things. And for today, I’m meant to be cropping at a weekend away with friends, but they have been ever so kind as to not ridicule me too much for sticking my laptop on my cropping spot since there is a decent internet connection here. Roll with the punches – that’s this whole adventure!

We left off with discussion of Christmas projects and one option for page numbers in a Christmas journal. This year I wanted my page numbers to be coordinated but varied, and the Simple Stories Christmas papers turned out to be perfect for this. The 6×6 paper pad includes several sheets of small accents that are easy to cut into boxes, so I started by cutting all of those accent sheets and inking the edges so no matter what I would have those ready.

Journal your Christmas page numbers
From there, I started adding a few little embellishments and numbers from my Christmas kit, including some labels and some dimensional pieces and plenty of number stickers. They aren’t overly embellished, because I prefer to be able to work them into various styles as the month goes on. For me, I like a balance of items that are prepared and ready but still have the potential to be customised as each day unfolds, so some days I’ll add these straight to the page and other days I’ll dress them up more with gems, ribbons, twine and whatever else happens to match that page. As soon as I have the printer set up, I’ll be adding some numbers from Rhonna’s printable numbers which I love.

For now, these will all sit in a bowl at the side of my desk, and then with each entry I’ll add a number, all coordinated but no two alike. Perfect for my album this year.

Nice to be back – and now to work my way down a BIG to do list! Hurrah!

    Welcome Back Shimelle, I missed you :) Glad to hear you are getting there, surely it is crime in this day and age for there not to be internet everywhere……sometimes whole hours go by when I can’t get on to check what’s going on ;)

    The numbers look great. I am journal making this week ready…I have changed my mind so many times thinking about what i’m going to do that I will be just glad to nail it down :)

  9. Peggy Says:

    I love what you’re doing with your page numbers, Shimelle. I wish I could be as elaborate with mine, but they’re already a bit big for my pages. I may end up putting rub-ons or stamping underneath them, but I don’t have room for more than that. The ARE Rhonna numbers though: I’ve punched out the numbers from number tags in the Daily Junque ephemera pack, using an SU scroll punch.

    Glad you are back! Awesome numbers! Can’t wait to start JYC!

  12. linda Says:

    I love your numbers.I am using the same paper line, but I am putting them all on transparencies so you get a peek of that day through the numbered page. Mine are all ready to go—just waiting til december!

  13. Rosie Says:

    I have premade all my numbers up until the 25th of Dec.(see here) since I am formally doing JYC along with December Daily. I think I will have 12×12 layouts for the 26th to the 31st, haven’t done numbers for those yet but I will let myself be inspired by JYC for those :)

    Nice to see you back Shimelle!

  20. Lisa-Jane Johnson Says:

    You must be tearing your hair out without regular access! Glad to “see” you again though and I hope everything gets sorted very soon for you.

    I spent yesterday making my numbers using the inspiration from the Christmas weekend, I just need to add buttons and stitch them but I’ll blog when I have. Take care of yourself in all the madness!

  21. Scrapdolly Says:

    I hope your new home is feeling like just home now – though I know finding the new home for everything takes a while

    I did do my numbers though miss

    Hi Shim! Just want to say I feel your pain, I’m not completely moved in yet, but I do have internet!!
    I’m using the same paper for this year, but a different line for my numbers. Of course they aren’t finished yet, but I’ll get there!!
    Welcome home – and yes, I know it’s not “home” yet. Mine isn’t either. :(
