For the past few years I have been taking pictures of my family around the holiday time. So I finally decided to put it together to make it a scrapbook so that I can add new pictures each year.

See the full flip through below.
I started with the Grafix 6x9 assorted mixed media journal, it has so many different kinds of pages that lend to having all kinds of different media added to the pages. I started with the front cover made of chipboard and used a stencil and gold metallic paste.
I also did a few pages with a teal modeling paste with stencils as well.
The matte and clear pages are perfect for vinyl to give a cool see through look, and for even more fun I picked out some transparent vinyl, so it looks like you are seeing through the pages to give a ton of depth! I picked out a few different colors of solid and glitter transparent vinyl from StyleTechCraft in my favorite colors, teal, gold, silver, grey, and purple. I first started with a couple of phrases that would fit a book about our family and cut them on my Cricut. For the main phrase, I spliced a few different colors together to give it even more interest, but first you have to weed out the bits you do not need.
Then it is all just about layering the colors into the transfer tape and placing on the clear paper.
Here is another page with some cool hearts layered with the vinyl and another fun phrase.
The book is sprinkled with pictures of our family through the years, some are missing so I left them black to hopefully find one to place in the future. I also added a journal page to each picture to help remember the special events of that year.
What pictures would you put into a perpetual scrapbook?
