I'm making a December Daily album this year.
Every year I admire these projects and, well, this year I'm in! I'm excited about this project because last year a Christmastime my husband was very sick. We found out that he had stage 3 colon cancer last November, he had surgery on December 15th, then started 6 months of chemo in January. It was a rough holiday season, and I took almost no pictures. But this year thats all behind us. My husband's follow ups are all cancer free! So now that we're (somewhat) back to normal I'm looking forward to a happier holiday this year.
The book I made is 6" x 8". I used Technique Tuesday's Technique Tiles for the base.
I used these 3 stamp sets - December Daily, Life in Pictures, and Holiday Happenings for the little collage on the cover.
I used some patterned paper from October Afternoon's Hometown collection. I was looking for a small print that would look good with the vintage/office supply look of the stamps. I Mod Podged the paper and all of the stamped elements to the cover of the book. One thing I learned the hard way a few years ago is that some inks bleed when you coat them with Mod Podge (example here), but Memento inks don't.
Here's a close up of the stamping. I haven't thought of a plan for how I'm going to do the inside pages yet, but I did fill the book with black cardstock pages because I thought they'd look old time scrapbooky like the cover.
Looking forward to this!
