This year I am trying my hand at a December Daily album. I thought it best to tackle this task with a pre done kit and there was no way I was going past the Studio Calico kit. I loved just about everything about it and it has made life just that little bit easier pulling the album together.
Armed with the kit, and the gorgeous new Words or Whatever Christmas products, I was away.
For the beautiful embossed chipboard album cover I have painted it with white paint. I have then added the chipboard Star Cluster Banner which I have coated in a gold embossing.
My title page I have kept super simple (which isn't like me and I might add to it or change it if I have time this month but it is doing the job for now). I have used the gorgeous dark wood veneer Christmas Birds and Ornaments (WV083D) and the chipboard 'December Daily' title (WOW2042). The flair button came in the Studio Calico kit. I have used one of the kit papers and added a piece of vellum to the frame area (which is really hard to see in this picture).
After watching Ali Edwards videos for her December Daily inspiration, I thought it best to add this little half page with the calendar and my 'To Do' list for the month.
The calendar 'Dec' is Words or Whatever chipboard Girly Alpha Uppercase (WOW1386), and the chipboard Mini Star Banner (WOW2017) is embossed in green.
December 1st is our day to put up the Christmas tree in our house, and I had some fun snapping these pics of the tree, our newest decoration and the never ending battle that is our tree lights.
The dark wood veneer 'Triming the Tree' title (WV094D) did have the little tree on the end, but as it didn't fit, I cut it off and used it on the journal card. This is the first time I have cut the dark veneer. It is brittle, but easy enough to cut and it worked out really well.
We haven't had tinsel on our Christmas tree since we got together, so this year I decided that it needed it. Plus I had the 'Tinsel fixes everything' card which I thought was very appropriate.
I will be back next week with some more December Daily and other Christmas inspiration for the Words or Whatever Christmas release. Don't forget that the WOW blog has new inspiration everyday for the month of December, so make sure you take a few minutes to head over and check it out too.
