Need a December Album Story? Use Numbers for a Top 5 List

Hybrid Pocket scrapbooking inspiration by Jessica Upton using Number Stamps - MPM Magic Add On by Sahlin Studio

Hi Everyone! Jessica here today to share some pages from my December Daily / Document Your December album! I was so excited when I saw Krista’s new set of digital number stamps as I knew that they would be perfect for something I wanted to include in my album for this year. Here is a look at the stamps from the store. They come in 2 options: circle and square. I love them both, but picked the circles for this project.

Number Stamps by Sahlin Studio - Perfect to use for Project Life or Document Your December or December Daily projects!!

I used them along with the Memory Pockets Monthly: MAGIC. Which is one of my favorite’s of this awesome monthly kit available at The Lilypad. It is so good!

I had some photos from 2009 that I had not documented of my girls and myself when I was pregnant. My hubby took them and I just really wanted them in a December Memories album as they were used for our Christmas Cards that year. I did not do a December Memories album in 2009, so I figured why not just include them in this years album! There are no rules, I need to remind myself of this sometimes too. I made two 6×8 spreads of the photos and some of the cards from the MAGIC collection. I attached some acrylic pieces and wood veneer trees from my shop (Color Cast Designs) and called the spreads good. I have to say, I ADORE using Krista’s collections with pieces from my store….they work so well together.

Merry & Bright Number It

Oh my goodness, my girls were so little! And that baby in my belly, he is the most amazing 5 year old boy now. Time flies!



Then, I used the number stamps to list out my top 5 reasons that these photos are my very favorites! The stamps worked so good for this. I love the circles around the numbers and love how they look on top of the plaid paper that I turned down the opacity on in Photoshop. I printed this a bit smaller than 6×8  and placed it between my two 6×8 spreads so that you could see the layers of photos and embellishments below it.  I love how it turned out!


Thank you so much for stopping by today and I hope that I have inspired you to use the Number stamps on your next project! And remember, it is totally acceptable to include memories from Christmas’ past in this years album. I think that my kids will love seeing these photos of them when they were so little alongside of photos of them as teens!
