I know things look a little quiet around here. I decided to take down a lot of old posts. The photos weren’t taken well, they weren’t watermarked, and well, 2013 is about doing better!
With that in mind, I am so happy to share my December Daily with you! This is the first year I’ve done this and I really enjoyed it. I did lose some momentum after Christmas Day but I am glad I persevered and added the last few days of the month. My supplies weren’t too extensive; a kraft card and envelope pack from Michaels and a variety of supplies from My Mind’s Eye All is Bright (6×6 paper pads, chipboard stickers, layered stickers, mat stack and washi tape). I used some Authentique holiday paper for the numbers on each page. The covers are Tim Holtz grungeboard covered with distress ink in Fired Brick. The journaling throughout is printed on kraft cardstock, in a font called Santa’s Sleigh. (What? It was totally perfect!)
A quick note about the journaling: I saved some time and paper by printing several days at a time, so I could always run a full 8.5×11 sheet through my printer and waste less. I kept a piece of scrap paper on my desk to jot down the information I wanted to journal, so that I didn’t forget any details.
The album is huge! I didn’t realize how big it would become. I added Christmas photos we received from friends in the back. (I was just about kissing my Crop-a-dile after I punched all those holes. It served me well!)
Enjoy the peek into my holiday and please let me know how your DD is going. I’m very happy mine is done before Valentine’s Day 🙂
Awesome job Cheryl

Love the December Daily Cheryl … its organized MME chaos fabulous-ness! All the tabs, layers, mix of patterns, sizes of paper, etc make me very happy. 🙂 I saw your well deserved kudos from MME on their blog and had to follow it back to your blog to check it out in more detail!
Unorganized MME chaos … sounds about right 🙂
