December Daily 2013

It's true, I caved!

Not only is this my first year doing Project Life (which I've been terrible at sharing on my blog) but I'm adding my first December Daily to the mix too. I wasn't planning on doing a December Daily Album but I kept seeing everyones covers on Instagram and I couldn't help myself!

But, I will not be doing December Daily! It's true! I made this album for my 6 year old niece, so she can record her traditions and add things she wants to add to it. I already talked to her before I made it and she was excited about it. I asked her if she wanted to make an album like my Project Life one but all about Christmas and she gave an enthusiastic "sure!"

Instead of buying all new Christmas materials for it, I just went around my room and collected everything I wanted to use. I knew the colors I wanted were red, white and brown, maybe a little green too.

I took out 12x12 papers, went though all my 6x6 stacks and, got some ribbons and some tags from Elle's Studio and Chic Tags! If you haven't checked out Elle's Studio or Chic Tags, do yourself a favor and do it!

And here it is... My 1st December Daily Album cover! I LOVE how it came out!!

For the base of the cover, I used Authentique's Peaceful collection and the paper is called "Chill". The woodgrain is from KI Memories called Forrest Bonfire. I cut the cute vintage looking Santa out of a We R Memory Keepers paper called "Ho Ho Ho" from their Merry & Bright collection. And the fun red text paper is from Crate Paper's "Peppermint" collection.

I used Studio Calico wood veneers in "Magical Thought Bubbles" and the alphabet in "Darling Dear".

The glittery thickers are Delight. And the super cute Christmas Tag is from Chic Tags!

I only have the cover done so far but will start putting together the inside this week! I'll post it when I do!
