A few months ago there was a thread on 2Peas about December Daily, and a very wise Pea had an idea to do a perpetual December Daily. Something you could add to each year, and maybe use the 7 Gypsies spinner or the drawer to keep it all contained. I thought this was a great idea!
Here is my version of a perpetual DD that I'm going to do.
I call it Tags in a Tin
Here are all of my supplies. I gathered them together in this basket. I think this will save me a lot of time to keep the supplies together so I don't have to go looking for them every day.
The white file folder I'm using to keep the stamps in, and I've got some loose graph paper clipped to the front for practice stamping or rough draft journaling. I'm using 2 sets from last year which are on the older 8 1/2" x 11" sheets, December Daily and Good Cheer, so I need the folder to hold these large sets. I'm also using A Date With Ali to get the year 2011 on my tags.
The tin container is something I found at the Target $1 Spot. I may upgrade to the 7 Gypsies drawer, we'll see.
I've got papers and embellishments from Basic Grey Nordic Holiday, lots of Christmas washi tape from Martha Stewart Crafts, and bakers twine from Twisted Sugar.
Here are the tags. Some are the Avery shipping tags, some are Technique Tuesday Technique Tiles, and the colored cardstock tags I cut out with the Sizzix Tim Holtz tag and bookplate die.
Since this is going to be a perpetual book I thought I'd pull some photos from prior years and try out a few tags just to see if I'd like the small size. Last year my book was 6" x 8" so these tags are a lot smaller.
I did the journaling on the back of the tag using a Basic Grey die cut. "december" is from the Studio AE kit and the numbers are from December Daily.
Here are a few more
I love the way the tape looks on these tags. Its such a quick and easy embellishment. The date stamp on the center tag is from Lets Call it a Date.
And here are the backs of the tags with all of the journaling. The journaling block from the December Daily stamp set is something I used a lot last year. I used it here on the center and right tags.
So I didn't exactly pre-make my pages, I just cut out the tags and gathered my supplies. I think this will be a fun project to do, and to add to each year.
