How can it be that December is almost upon us?? I know that I'm not ready for it to arrive. We are already starting to gear up for the holidays and Ryan is really excited. I managed to hit some Black Friday sales but I'm nowhere near done with my shopping. Plus, I'm starting a new job, so my free time is going to be elusive. I decided to do a December Daily this year and I'm really hoping that I can keep up with it. I don't want it to become a burden. I do want to make sure we do enough to celebrate the season so that I have enough to add to my album. Here's the cover.
I love it so far. I decided to go with a Snap album. I added some bits and pieces to the front inclusing a Crate border sticker and chipboard snowflake, a shipping tag, a doily (of course) and some Elle's Studio goodies.
I've even organized my goodies so they are there for me to reach. I'm ready to go! Wish me luck...
Here are a couple of other projects that I don't think I've shared yet.
This first one is a page that I used a ton of Silhouette leaf cuts on. All of the paper and stickers on here are Crate Acorn Lane.
I arranged the leaves on the page and just started gluing them down where they were. Some were added with foam adhesive for a bit of texture.
I think it would be fun to recreate a page like this using snowflakes.
Here's another project I did for Crate recently. Our November Creative Weekly theme was to focus on gratitude. Of course my friends and family are at the top of my 'thankful' list, but I decided to take a different course here.
I took pictures of all of the little things I was thankful for on this particular day and documented them here.
The background paper is my new favorite -it's from the Sleigh Ride collection. Most everything else is from On Trend.
I'd like to do these kind of 'gratitude' pages more often. I think it's a good way to remind myself of all the good things in my life each day.
Well, that's about it for today. Thanks for stopping by and have a great day. :)
