Do you remember this card that I painstakingly made ??? You can see all about it Here.
Well I absolutely adored that card, so when it came to writing out all my Christmas Cards this year to hand out – well – lets just say that I couldn’t possibly part with this card! It was just too special, too gorgeous and too much work to part with. Still, I wasn’t entirely sure what I was going to do with it!
Then came along my December Daily album where the front needed some special adorning for Christmas. I was stuck this year as to what to decorate it with. I had thought of using the ornaments soon many times – but I wasn’t sure how to quite do it.
Then yesterday it came to me whilst staring at my card….. I wanted that ornament on my album – however I really didn’t want to spend hours making another one – so I set to work using this one without to much fuss at all.
Here’s what I created……
I simply trimmed my card down and used our new ‘Number of Years’ dies with our red foil to create the year. A glittered star and gold cording trim and I was done!!!! And isn’t it wonderful that the ornaments have carried forward into the Occasions Catalogue!
I hope you like it!
Now to complete the pages……………. :-/
I have finally finished my DD Album Cover – here is the big reveal! Lol.
I know its not very traditional for an ‘Australian’ Album – but I have ALWAYS wanted a white Christmas 😉 Maybe I will try ‘traditional’ next year. I saw a card on Pinterest that looked gorgeous with the trees from the ‘White Christmas’ stamp set – so I Cased it. I was however, very nervous about stamping directly onto the album in case I mucked it up!
The December embellishment is not Stampin’ Up!s, but I truly couldn’t resist it. And once I had embossed it in our gold powder – it was perfect!
Overall, I’m very happy with the result – now to fill up more pages!
So my December Daily journey continues and I’m actually finding it really fun having pics to remember events every day. Im beginning to understand why lots of people PL everyday!
My eldest however….not so thrilled about the pics I have been making him pose for!
My new Picturemate Printer (it’s supposed to be for Christmas so shhhhhhh!) is helping me keep up and get my journaling done. Too easy!
My front cover is almost finished, and I will upload it once its complete. Its not very traditional for an Australian Christmas – but I’m very happy with how it is coming together.
Are you doing a December Daily?
I have loved doing Project Life since I was first introduced to it earlier this year. It has made my scrapbooking sooooo much easier!
So this year – I have taken the leap – and am doing a December Daily!
You must have heard all the hype so far! And you can choose to do it anyway you like!
I am planning on doing a mini album and a page a day…I’ve looked to Pinterest and Facebook for ideas and inspiration on what to include. I can think of a few ‘events’ that will make this easy…other days….ummmmmmm 😉
So, I haven’t quite finished the album cover – you will need to wait just a little longer…..but here are my first two pages:
I am using the gorgeous products from Stampin’ Up!s supplement catalogue – the Hello December cards and accessory packs.
If you would like to join in the fun, let me know. I would love to hear about and see your creations:-)
