Day One & Two!

Those good intentions get me every time!!  December the 2nd and already I am behind on my album!  How does this happen!  Life, that is what, but I am okay with that!  I spent last night getting in the Christmas spirit by decorating out at Scrappin' Great Deals, in preparation for their big Anniversay Event that happens tomorrow!

Anyway, I will now show you the interior of the first two pages of my album, minus the photos and journalling!  At least I am part of the way there!!!

A little close up of the holly along the side of the journal card:

I discovered Platinum stickles!  How did I not know that this colour existed!  Totally in love with it! So that is it for today!  Stay tuned for more!

By the way, if you are interested in learning more about the concept of a December Daily album, this incredible artist - Ali Edwards, is I believe, the originator of the idea. She has some amazing ideas to share!!

'Tis the Start of the Season!!

Welcome December!  The most wonderful time of the year!!  Today is the release of Scrappin' Great Deals December Kits, and I have the Scrapbooking Kit to share with you today!  It's theme: An Enchanted Christmas!!

I blogged earlier about using the kit to create my very first December Daily Album. Today I have a little snippet to show you of the first page of it:

Love this cute little guy popping out of a box!!! He is another fabulous Mo Manning Image by Stamping Bella! I coloured him with my pencil crayons and mineral spirits.  The number one is chipboard coloured with a fabulous new colour of Tattered Angels Glimmer Glaze - Chianti!!  Add a little Tsukineko champagne metallic ink to the edges and it is perfection!! The holly is cut from a Tim Holtz mover & shaker die - Tree & Holly, and has also been treated to a little champagne!!  

I will show you the whole page after I add the pictures I took this morning of my two boys opening their Lego Star Wars Advent Calendar.  (I might be missing the Christmas connection there?? When did Star Wars = Christmas???) Ah well, they were both happy!  And that is part of the Christmas spirit at least! 

Enjoy your day!
