This lo is about a tradition we keep: the First Foot. It comes from the Isle of Man and it’s explained on the journaling that reads:
Quaaltagh
The Isle of Man name for
the 1st Foot, or the 1st person to enter
a house on New Year’s Day.
The 1st Foot is very important because
he influences the fortune of the home
for the coming year. If he’s an unlucky or
ill-favored person the family will suffer
the consequences for the next 12 months.
It is wise, therefore, to arrange for the 1st Foot
to be a respectable person. He should bring,
as gifts, a coin, a slice of bread, a lump of
coal, and a dram of spirits. This will
ensure prosperity, food, warmth, and
good cheer during the
New Year.

Every year, on Jan. 1st., our friend Alex acts as our First Foot.

Thanks for looking.

HOLIDAYS 2013 – 2014 – PAGE 20 & TWO CHRISTMAS CRAFTS

As I did for the “2002 Divider” lo, I used an old CD as the base for this wreath.

I recycled a jar with a music sheet printed with my computer, 3d glitter glue for the heart shape border and laundry detergent (powder) for the top and bottom borders of the jar, and for the snow inside it. Finally I added a silver and white ribbon and bow to the top border.
The music sheet had already the torn effect so I just printed it and cut out the heart shape. You can see the original page below.

This is a divider I needed for my “Holidays” album, to separate the lo’s of 2011 from those of 2012.

As a base for the doilies wreath I used an old CD. The first two layers of doilies are glued to the front of the CD, the last one is adhered to the back of it.

As usual I cut out the past of the background sheet that was going to be covered by the wreath.

This year I’ve decided to use some beautiful cards I kept from past Holidays in my lo’s. In this case I added the photo inside the card.

The Santa note was printed on the scrapbook sheet, I just cut the parts of its borders where I needed to slip the other notes and the green lace border.

I made the poinsettia myself using a template I found on internet. Then I applied glue and glitter on the petals.

I used old cards also in pages 2, as an embellishment, and 10, as the background for one of the photos:

For the napkin background I used a piece of leftover paper and, as I always do, I cut out the part that was going to be hidden under the ivory matting paper so I still have a leftover to make a tag or a background for another project.

I don’t care much about the cutting that’s why the shape is odd.

This is how the back looks.

The metallic tag holder was blue. I covered it with glue and green glitter.

As usual I drop some glue with the glue gun under the petals of flowers, and let it dry so they won’t flatten once in the album.

I use this same trick under butterflies wings, leaves, etc.

The paper red and green flowers in the two pages above are handmade by me. You can find how to make them in the “Tips” section.

This is an interactive page. When you slide the strips you can see the hidden photos.

For the main photo matting paper I used the piece of cardboard that came as a background for some stickers, cutting the borders with a special pair of scissors, as seen below.
