Lexi Bridges: The Waterfall Packs are some of my favorite BasicGrey items because I feel like you get a little bit of everything in one product. Combine that with a pocket page and insert from the Capture line and you have an easy and fun way to document your memory.
For this page I combined Capture and RSVP products, particularly the Waterfall Pack, to document a recent birthday weekend. I decided to go with a folder for one side and a divided page on the other. I like mixing it up like that.
On the righthand side, you can see I added typing write on the insert. I just ran it through my typewriter and, oops, made a mistake. No problem. It happens all the time when I play with paper. See that piece of graph paper with typing on it? It’s covering up my mistake. So now you know ;) The little alpha stickers in the pack make for perfect titles and the cards are great for layering: I added one under my photo, along with a few receipts and tags.
On the lefthand side, I added most of my journaling in the little strip in the middle, with a few more photos getting embellishment treatment from pieces in the Waterfall Pack and journaling cards as my base. The little die cut cupcake is the perfect accent for a birthday spread. I added my birthday number to it along with some sequins.
A fun little birthday spread to add to my Capture album, using mainly pieces from the RSVP Waterfall Pack!

One of the greatest products to emerge from the ever-expanding Capture collection (in my humble opinion) is the Waterfall Theme Pack. Not only does each pack come with journaling cards, die cuts, letter stickers and label stickers, but they also come in a container that lasts use after use. Always a bonus in my book.
Since it is the holiday season, after all, today I’m shining the spotlight on the 25th & Pine Waterfall Pack.
How perfect are these journaling cards? I love anything with a prompt (such as “Favorite Holiday Traditions”) to jog my memory and get my thoughts flowing.
You had me at gold letter stickers. I’ll take a lifetime supply, please ;)
This particular Waterfall Theme Pack is absolutely perfect for a December Daily album or holiday layouts and cards!
Audrey Pettit: I absolutely adore giving beautiful gifts at holiday time, and one of my most favorite looks is simple kraft paper wrapping. I love the natural feel of the kraft, and I think it works great for every person on my gift giving list, male or female, young and old alike. Better yet, kraft paper is inexpensive, and it is so easy and fun to dress up to fit each recipient using just a few basic scrapbook supplies that we all have on hand. Here I wrapped up my packages and then gave them a personalized touch using adorable 25th & Pine patterned papers and embellishments.
To make sweet packages like these, simply wrap your gift, and then top them with a panel of your favorite patterned paper, cut about 1” smaller on each side. Tie the box up with ribbons and bows. Punch a hole in the top of a Snippets journaling card and string with hemp for an instant gift tag. Then dress up the tag with die cuts and transparencies. A few stars from the Wood Die Cuts on the tags and bows help pull in the more rugged feel of the kraft wrap. Then to balance a bit of the weight of the tags, I added die cut sentiment greetings to the top of the package. Simple, sweet, and so much fun!

For the month of December, instead of adding spreads to my weekly Capture album, I am working on a 25th & Pine 5 x 7″ spiral journal to document the holiday season. I am loosely following Ali Edwards’ December Daily concept and doing my best to add photos and memorabilia as many days as I can. I’m not terribly concerned about capturing every single day; I just want to enjoy the moments that strike me as scrap-worthy. No stress is best!
The change in weekly format is so refreshing! How are you documenting your holiday season?
