Handmade Holiday (Simple Stories Handmade Holiday)


You may have been shocked when I posted a two-page pocket-style layout last week, but guess what? I did another one!

This one is about the gingerbread house exhibit we go to every year at the George Eastman House. I always take way too many photos and end up scrapping only a few of them. I shared a layout about one of the other creations yesterday.

There are so many amazing creations displayed. They're made by families, scouting troops, senior centers and professional bakers. This year I wanted to record more of them so that's how this two-pager was born.

Here's a closer look at the left side. I personalized the stocking stickers with rub on letters. I also embellished inside and outside of the pockets, as I usually do.



Here's a look at the right-hand page. Isn't the old-fashioned armoire (top left photo) amazing? It was inside a glass case so I couldn't get the best photo of it. I was also in awe of the birdhouse (bottom right photo) with all of the detailed shingles.



I'm caught up on gingerbread house photos, so I'll be moving on to other topics tomorrow. Thanks for stopping by today!

  8. our pocket pages are perfect for scrapping this type of event. I have steered away from them for so long because I don't do project life. Now, I am reconsidering!
