SOC Christmas in July Blog Hop: Day 2

Welcome to day 2 of the SOC "Christmas in July" Blog Hop

Today and Tomorrow, I'll be sharing pages from an ongoing project of creating a random Christmas pages; of which I will also put on DVD to give to my family as gifts.  After I began scrapbooking full time and started showing books and cards to my family members and friends; they all wanted their own books. I did that for a while, and then I started to get behind on projects for my clients and personal projects.

CHRISTMAS DVD COVERS


Purchase a package of sturdy DVD sleeves or you can spend a little more and purchase the plastic DVD jewel cases. I choose to use the paper sleeves.
I used 12 x 12 solid cardstock layers to make the sleeves more sturdy. I also used patterned 12x12 in non traditional colors; because that's how I roll (LOL).

I Inked the edges just to tone down the white sleeves so that it would blend with the black and and gold better. You ay be wondering what the "70" is all about...In 2012 my mom turned 70 and I wanted everyone to have the scrapbook pages and the DVD presentation that my daughter made.

Thanks for visiting...See you Sunday.
