December Daily 2012

The month has been so busy for us. I'm sure it's been busy for you too. We are busy in a good way, but I haven't found much time to blog.

This month I've been keeping up on a December Daily album. I decided to keep the album small (8" X 5.5") and I'm keeping the design simple. For me simple means that I'll be able to finish it.

For the cover, I punched a bunch of little circles for confetti and then sewed them in between that fabulous sheet of gold polka velum and a kraft paper.

I was at Target in the Christmas section and saw a set of gold sharpies and knew that they would be perfect for this album. They work perfectly on this. I'm thinking about addressing our Christmas cards with the sharpies too.

The album started off with a little intro page. I built the album from scratch using patterned paper and kraft cardstock. I tried to alternate solid and patterned papers so there would be a nice background for photos plus a more solid page for journaling.

I'm printing off the little square pictures on my home photo printer. Although some days it's hard to find time for this, it's always fun to look at once it's complete. I'll be sharing more pages soon.
