Visions of Sugar Plums Daily December Journal

Hi everyone, it is almost that time of year again and I hope you are ready to start recording your December memories. Yesterday I taught my annual workshop for the Daily December Journal at The Crafty Scrapper- I think this was my favorite one so far!

I used the new Graphic 45 'Twas the Night Before Christmas paper line to decorate a Maya Road 8x8 Chipboard album. I really wanted the cover to shine- I have had this idea percolating in mind for a while and I am really happy with how it turned out.

I used Wendy Vechhi's Embossing Paste to create my texture, added some bling, and other embellishments.  Of course, I always add a lot of sparkly things hanging from the spine- some cute ornaments, a Santa jingle bell, beads and pearls, and some ribbons.

Some Maya Road pins and twine, a little bit of glitter and a journal card from the matching embellishments round out the cover.




I always like to add unexpected pages in my albums and for this one I used some fabulous glassine envelopes I had to create pages on the front and back, and added a large tag inside.




For these pages I used a sheet of watercolor paper and folded it into sections to create pockets and flaps.



I also used a large Kraft envelope to add a tag in the center and pages on both sides.






Are you still here? I know there are lots of photos here but this was a large album!

We had a great time at the workshop yesterday - but I was so busy I forgot to take photos! This class was sold out- there are not even any kits left. This paper line is available in the store- so if you would like to create something along these lines be sure to pick some up before it is all gone!

Thanks so much for stopping by today and have a fabulous week!
