I was able to create this album with 99% of supplies from my LSS, ScrapHappy. I decided to go a little different route with this one and mix papers from the Simple Stories 25 Days of Christmas line and Jillibean Soup's Christmas Eve Chowder line. I thought it would be fun to mix in a little bit of the traditional Christmas look, with a little of the more contemporary and I love the way it turned out! For the front and back covers of my album, I got some of the 8x6 acrylic sheets from the store. These are great to decorate, and help protect the pages in your album. The binder rings are also available in the store and I just used my Crop-a-Dile to punch through the acrylic and add the rings. To create the base for my pages, I took some old cardstock and cut it to 8x6 pages and then cut and added my patterned paper to the front and back. Once I had the bases, I added the numbers for each day and then started decorating. Here is my finished product:
I hope you enjoyed seeing how I made my December Daily and that you will take time to do one too this year! There is no formula or directions, just have fun and start creating!!
