December Daily?

Ok - so, it is already into the first full week of December - but I really did have this book done before December started... have you done one? This is my first year - so I wasn't really sure what we would include or what we would journal, etc.. so I just did a few random things.

This month, I have Echo Park Holly Jolly to play with - my first project is this December daily!
I'll warn ya now... this is a photo heavy post :)

I used an old chipboard album that I had lying around,
and added in a few extras.



I wanted to make the album quick and easy....so I grabbed some red mist and just spritzed over a number mask from a while back! I added some chipboard pieces and some cheap sequins for some sparkle too :)

For the rest of the book, I used the Holly Jolly 6x6 paper pad instead of full sized sheets, the Holly Jolly chipboard, the journalling tags sheet and some twine too. I just love that red colour!!

Here are all the pages of the book - we started with a little journalling already.. left some room for photos, etc...
Here we go:



A couple quick closeups:

one of the journalling card:

a Pink Paislee tag tucked inside a little paper bag.
journalling will go on another tag in behind the date
I love the Maya Road Wood Snowflakes
from the store - they are so cute plain - or misted ;)


I hope you are feeling the holiday spirit now... this project really is a great way to gather all your new holiday scrappy goodies and make something special for your family to record their favorite holiday memories!

Check out the new goodies in the STORE - Canvas Corp, October Afternoon Farmhouse, October Afternoon Holiday Style and more!!!

Happy Holidays to everyone!!!
