December Daily- You Are Done.
So it turns out having too much Xmas supplies is as bad as not having enough. One of my biggest issues was choosing what to use.
This year I ordered the Studio Calico DD kit & Kelly Purkey's DD kit. And then I couldn't resist a few extras from Basic Grey, October Afternoon, Crate Paper. Not to mention the ton of supplies that I had left over from all the other years of Xmas bits and pieces. So I had so much to choose from when I finally got down to business in making my album.
But it's finally done.
Cover supplies include: Studio Calico DD kit: album, washi tape, Crate Paper boarder sticker, SC wood veneet, AC gold letters, BG blue letter, sequins. Kelly Purkey kit: 'Joy' card, background paper polka dots. Tree is a Chapters ornament that I stuck on there with a load of glossy accents.
I stuck with 25 days instead of my usual 31 because I was ready to be done-and by the look of the size of the album so was it. I will admit that the 4 by 6 size made it very easy to complete the album in record time seeing as how I didn't prep anything ahead of time. I also stuck to focusing on one event per day rather than trying to cram everything from each day into the album. In the past that's made it very overwhelming.
Even though it took me a little longer to get it all done this year I was pleasantly surprised with the ease with which it all came together.
So here's a bunch of photos of what it all looks like.
And my very favourite-the last page...
How can you not be in love with that sleepy puppy? Christmas IS exhausting. This was taken using my iphone on the way home from our Christmas day festivities. It was a fluke that it turned out so perfect. Might be framing this one.
A few of the pages I love the most are December 4th-
The stamped sentiment is from an old SC set but it was so perfect for this pattern paper.
Then there's Dec. 9. It was so hard to chose photos from this one because it was such a fun night.
I love this shot. In the car, rear view mirror, using the iphone.
This was one of the few interactive elements I did to include a few more shots. It's a little strip of photos that folds out. It's adhered on top of the page protector.
And that's it. She's just full enough and she is lovely. I am so pleased that it's all done.
