Sorry for being SO quiet last month- I'm finally home, settled in, and getting back to crafting! We've been getting into the holiday spirit around here with decorating, baking, and shopping- and I've opted to do a December Daily this year. I'm taking more of a loose approach- I won't organize it by day as we don't do something Christmasy EVERY day, but I'll be sure to capture the important things like our family traditions. I'm already late to the party as we're already a week into December, but I'm hoping to catch up this weekend. Today, I finished the cover to give me a little more motivation to get crackin'.
Nothing too fancy, but simple and clean- just my style. I wanted to make sure I didn't layer too much, that way it will be able to sit next to other albums on a shelf nicely.
I started with a single coat of Modge Podge just to give it a bit of a finished shine, then adhered the Crate paper (my favorite Christmas paper EVER).
I'm not usually big on glitter, but I think it works nicely here and helps tie everything together. (By the way, I'm using the December Daily kit from Studio Calico, plus a lot of other bits and pieces I ordered online).
I'd probably have a little more of this album done if it weren't for this other project I've been working on...
Well friends, thanks for stopping by and being patient with my infrequent posts. I promise- I'm back and will post more often now!
