Inchie Friday ~ Christmas Eve, part 2...

I had so much fun with last weeks page, that I wanted to finish the 2-page spread and document our Christmas Eve traditions. We always enjoy so many things on Christmas Eve. In fact, I may need to do a few more pages just to document everything else.

This weeks page focuses on some stamp techniques that I haven't done with my Inchie Squares ~ paper piecing and cutting out stamped images. Isn't this cup of cocoa too fun? I colored the image to match the page (thus why it's pink). Then I used my Glaze pen to make the dots stand out ~ it looks so yummy to me!
This is my page from last week's Inchie Friday (click here for more photos of this page). One thing I did change on this page from last week ~ I added stamped snowflakes on the blue border and I like it much better.

This is what scrapbooking is all about to me ~ documenting my family history. I know that years down the road, our family will love looking at this page and reading about what we did every Christmas.

I used my Inchie squares on my journaling block to do two things: 1) bring attention to the journaling; and 2) tie the journaling to the specific photo.

I stamped the ice cream cone on cardstock this time and after I colored it with my Copic markers, I cut it out. It was such a long, narrow image that I thought it looked better popped up off some coordinating pattern paper.

On this last Inchie square, I decided to paper piece the mittens. When you have a larger amount of empty space on your image, paper piecing is a fun technique to try. It adds a lot to your image without having to color it.
