Today I wanted to come by and share with you my preparation for my December Daily album.
I had so much fun putting this together and even though I have done minimal preparation, it is going to make it easier come December.
I really love the Hello December range of products from Stampin’ Up. I love that everything is coordinated so well and so all that is left for you to do is to simply put it together.
I didn’t want to add too much to the front cover and I was a bit too nervous to stamp on the front cover however I jazzed it up a bit with a few trims. I have used a mixture of gold twine, real red and emerald envy twine finished with some gold sequin trim and some mini jingle bells.
I used the stamps from the Hello December Accessory pack to stamp on the spine insert. I love these little phrase stamps. I have used Basic Black, Real Red and Emerald Envy inks to achieve this look to match in with the other colours featured.
I fell in love with the Emerald Envy 6×8 album. It is one of our gorgeous in colours and it looks absolutely gorgeous with our Hello December range of products.
The first opening page I have used one of the pages from the variety pack that has all the 2×2 squares.
The Accessory Pack comes with lots of 2×2 cards and are gorgeous for creating these kinds of pages. I plan on adding some photos, some embellishments and some shaker pockets to this page.
I love the 2016 acetate card from the accessory pack.
I plan on adding some sequins and tiny beads and having this as an opening shaker pocket.
At the back I have added one of the pocket pages and added a 3×4 card at the front.
This will hold any memorabilia that I collect during the month.
As you can see I have pretty much only decided which order the pages will go in and placed the cards in the pockets.
I still have to decide which photos will go where and place numbers and embellishments on the pages. This however won’t take me long as I plan on keeping things pretty simple this year.
I really hope you have enjoyed having a look at the basic preparation for my album this year.
