Howdy blogging friends. Sorry I have been MIA for a few days,
I have had family in town visiting over the last week and haven't spent much time
online or scrapping. So happy to get back into my studio today
and get some scrapping done!!!
Today I have my December Daily from last Christmas
to share with you. It was the first time I did a December Daily
and although I enjoyed it, I don't know that I will do another one again
this year. Since we don't have small kids at home anymore it was hard to
some up with something to document each day. There were even several
days that I skipped! Here is a look,,,,
*****Warning! Lots of photos!!*****
I used a Melissa Francis kit for this project. Along with the kit I added MME die cuts, some Teresa Collins, Little Yellow Bicycle, DoodleBug, and a few other things from my Christmas bucket.
The kit from Melissa Frances included the covers, 10 6X6 pages, 2 vellum sheets, and 2 manilla envelopes. That was enough for me to do the whole album! And it was only $10!! It came with rings, but I dislike using rings on my albums so I used my Cinch to bind it instead.
The numbers for the pages came from a Teresa Collins sheet and I used my
EK Success punch to cut them out.
The fabulous clear overlay on this page is from LYB - I have had them for years!
These die cuts are also from LYB - I bought an 8X8 pad from them a few years back and I am so glad to be able to finally use it up!
The great tag here was made by a friend.
Here is where I skipped a few days,, There was just nothing going on between the 14th and the 18th!
Ok - I saw this great thing on Pinterest - use fishing line to hang ornaments from your curtain rods, chandeliers, etc all over the house. Easy, right? NO - it is not!! This took me an entire day to do!!!
The best part of the day - I made my girls go on a scavenger hunt for their presents all over the house. I put the card with the first clue in an envelope under the tree. They thought it was a gift card! AND - I got to use some Daisy D's Christmas die cuts that I bought forever ago.
I had space in the bad to add some of the cards we received from friends. No, I did not make these fabulous cards, I just have very talented friends!
Are you still with me?? So there you have it - my December Daily for last year.
I hope you grab a few ideas from it. And check out those Melissa Frances Kits - I know she has a few this season too. They are the bomb, and the perfect size - 6X6.
