I just realised earlier this week that the Cute Card Thursday Challenge is just so perfectly themed for my December Daily!
the theme is It's just a number to use a number/age on your project!
I have seen lots of people preparing their December Daily already this year and can't wait to see them now that December is here and pages are being filled!
If you would like to make one visit Ali Edwards who has lots of ideas and inspiration on how to make and fill your daily! Especially check out this post of hers!
To make my daily, I used some chipboard that had been used as packaging in some 12 x 12 papers. I cut it to 6 x 8 inches.
I used my Simple Stories '25 days of Christmas' papers to decorate the covers. Then I punched holes with the cropodile and added large eyelets. I am using book rings to hold it all together which is convenient as it keeps it neat while I am working on it but also means I can move around the inner pages.
The cute image on the front cover is a Lily of the Valley Stamp coloured with distress inks.
I am also entering the Little Red Wagon challenge with this book they asked to use eyelets!
The Simon Says Stamp challenge this week is anything goes!
Also, the Pollycraft challenge is 'christmas fun'!
I added this fabulous journalling page on the inner cover so that I write about what December means to me and why I love it!
Because the December daily is essentially a countdown to Christmas, how perfect was this paper to slot in the front.
I have lots of inner pages prepared in here, as backing papers ready to hold all the photographs and other mementos I want to add to it! Better get my camera charged up, it is going to be busy this month!
My biggest hurdle will be printing off the photographs. I don't print at home so think I may have to go and print them weekly, I certainly don't want to go to the store every day but I don't want to have to wait for them too long either!
It is important to keep up with this project as I know I won't feel like finishing it after Christmas, tried that once before and it didn't work!
The back cover, I love that the Simple Stories pack had so many appropriate quotes and sentiments for this project!
Thank you so much for dropping by, I hope you can join us at CCT this week and if you are making a December Daily please let me know so I can come and take a peek!
