I am using a SNAP album from Simple Stories. It's red and kraft. I've yet to embellish or personalize the cover. I just can't "picture" it yet, so I've decided to hold off until I have a clear picture of what I want it to look like. As you will see below, I've done a lot of the work already. I anticipate that I will have to make some changes and adjustments as the month goes on, and I am okay with that.
Here's a look at what I've got so far:
This is my title page. I had so much fun making it, and even stepped out of my comfort zone and used the Heidi Swapp Gold Lame ColorShine. It's beautiful!
The dividers were chipboard, but I wanted to add something to make them pop. I added letters, and painted over them in gold paint (Martha Stewart Paint that I purchased from Michael's)
|This is the first page of my album. We always go tot the Christmas Tree Farm the day after Thanksgiving to get our Christmas Tree, so I definitely wanted to include that in my album even though it happened in November.|
|And this is our receipt from the Christmas Tree Farm.|
|This page will have two pictures from when we went to the Opryland Hotel to see the Christmas lights.|
|I also had some chipboard letters laying around that I've never used, so I decided to paint those gold as well. This is an instagram picture as well, so excuse the quality.|
|Here's my dedicated December Daily cart. I finally found a Raskog cart from Ikea in stock online, so I snatched it up. I LOVE it. I should've gotten at least 2.|
Here are some items that I am using to embellish my December Daily this year:
Mister Huey's Doris
Wonderland Wood Veneers Snowflakes
Wonderland Die Cut Frames
