December Daily

Hi all! Hope you enjoyed your weekend. I have some pictures to share of my December Daily so far. Today I'm sharing the cover with you.

Just a little note about December Daily ideas-I had a big post on Friday with a whole list of resources I've found and am probably going to use in my December Daily kit. Check those out here!

So this year I bought the Studio Calico December Daily kit. It has been a great starting off point for my album. I also sorted through a lot of my stash early this month to have everything in one place when I started the album.


It's still a work in progress but I'm able to share my cover today. I knew I wanted to mist it with red and white and cover the front with some sort of layered collage of 'stuff'. There's lots of red and white and a hint of green.


I was inspired by a number of things I saw on pinterest and am trying to incorporate all the things that I added to my 'December Daily' board.

I also loved something I saw for the spine of the album. I added a piece of divine twine and a few little pieces, a 'peace' key and a little circle tag with a sticker on it, hanging on the spine. I love that look so incorporated that into the album as well as a little embossing at the bottom of the cardstock with the trees from one of our Christmas cards. A few little word stickers finished it off with a 'merry christmas'.


On the back I wanted to try using some stickers as masks and so I found some old stickers and then misted over them with the limited edition Holly Berry Mr. Huey from the Studio Calico kit. I added a little label and a little bling and called it quits there.


I did a little masking with the '2011' on the cover as well. I also love this plate. I've had it forever but hauled it out because I love the look of cream and red together. I love the way it turned out.


I'll be back tomorrow with the inserts I did.



  1. Love your cover! The misting is awesome! I can't wait to get my album in.

  2. this is wonderful. is the ablum part of the kit? if not, who makes them? thanks

  3. Looks really nice. I agree with the cream/red combination. I think next year I'm going to try to stick to those colors. I got a little carried away with color variety this year. Beautiful! (Ann/travelturtle)
