December Daily 2012


So, I decided to create my first December Daily this year, I am only going to December 25th.Oh my was that alot of pages! This December daily has a little twist to it...I challenged myself to use only what I had available in my craft room.I have to admit that was a challenge! I did have to order larger owires, which have not arrived yet. When they do, I'll decorate the cover a little more and post it.  I think some of these papers go back about 8 or 9 years!lol Even though they are older papers, I have always loved crafting with a vintage flair, so they are still something that I would choose today.I should warn you before you go any further...this post is pic HEAVY! I guess this is when a video would be appropriate, but I have never tackled that one.

The above letter opens up for a couple of pictures to be placed inside.

Below you can see that there is room for several pictures and journaling.
It's a little hard to see, in the picture below there  is a piece of clear cardstock between pages 5 & 6. I stamped a  little PTI Fancy Flourish with white staz on. Through out this book I have use PTI's Fancy Flourish, Grunge Me, Countdown Details, Tim Holtz Mini Holidays, and Just Rite Elegant Fronds.
I used this image of the little girl several years ago for my Christmas cards.I love her!

Just wanted to show you that this opens up to journal inside.

I plan on baking cookies around the 9th & 10th and I had this adorable sticker that I put on clear card stock. I made a recipe card on the back side using PTI Recipe Box.
Page 10 & 11 are on a piece of of acrylic.Fortunately I had goodies in my stash that worked perfect!
The hinged picture above opens up for a couple of pictures to be added.I thought that I could jot a few things down in this little book.

It's funny that I didn't even realize, until I saw the pictures, that I used this same santa in a smaller version on the previous page.

Another spot for a picture and some journaling.
Are you still with me? lol  Sorry this post is sooo long!

December 22 is my oldest DS 28th birthday. When he was little he loved to play with any kind of building blocks and cars and trucks. When I happened across this paper in my stash, I knew it had to go on this page.


Always trying to find hidden picture or journaling spots.
Have I lost you? We are almost done!
I love how I added another little piece of paper and angled it for an extra tag.
Well, if your still with me, thank you for looking at the longest blog post ever!!
I wish you a Merry Christmas and a Healthy Happy New Year!
