Not only did I get my Christmas cards sent to the printer today but I also put together the bones for my December Daily. I started it at about 2 am last night... down to the wire, per usual. I am following the same format as I did last year: one Instax photo per day on a piece of patterned paper. I'm keeping it incredibly simple otherwise it has a snowball's chance in hell (hee) of getting completed.
For the cover I used a Studio Calico alphabet journal and covered it with adhesive cork paper that I found at Michael's. This cork paper is the coolest stuff ever and it cut like butter with my American Crafts trimmer.
I added some little stamped Hero Arts snowflakes and gold embossing powder on the edge of the cover. I cut a snowflake out of Hambly woodgrain paper and added My Mind's Eye pink twine. The tag is from Staples with Lily Bee stickers (love these stickers) and two little gold glitter bells.
The inside of the cover uses the Hambly again with Amy Tangerine washi tape and a Studio Calico chipboard tag. The silver stars are from Michael's and I also added a little border of numbers using the 7 Gypsies Numero stamp set. The December stamp is the one I had custom made.
The plan is to stamp the bottom of each photo and add a tag for journaling into the album if needed. I cut a bunch of patterned papers down to 5x5 and have about five empty spots to add in any other memorabilia papers like catalogs, wrapping paper, menus, etc.
I hope to share the pages on a weekly basis. December holds a lot of exciting things for me and I cannot wait to celebrate + document all the good times to come!
