December Daily Part 2

Hi friends, Welcome back to my December Daily, Part II! This is a collection of what I did for the 1st Seven days, and little changes I added to the previous pages. The first thing I did was to complete the cover of my little "book". I added a cute poinsettia with an a gorgeous button given to me by Viviana Colondres. Not only did it match the colors perfectly, but it added a whimsical touch to the page.  I also added a chunky charm to my book!!!! This took me longer than I will admit ,but I finished it with jingle bells, pearls, baubles, and even a tassel and an antique pearl button. I am soo happy with the result! Day three...We watched The Grinch Movie, and this motivated me to work with all greens.  This was fun to do, and I also re-purposed some bits that would otherwise be discarded to make an embellishment. I love how even making paper crafts, we can be reminded of those little details: what appears as unusable, can often times be made beautiful.

Christmas December Daily (pp1-2)

Hi friends!  The Christmas season has begun, and this year I'm making a December Daily to go along with celebrations and memory making! I used my Tonic Craft Kit #15 for this quick and easy project. This allowed me to cut out all of the pages I intend to use, as well as all of the journaling cards in one day! Easy Peasy! I began with the Authentique Colorful Christmas Collection , and some adorable dies from my stash. My cover has a cut-out from the collection, and I layered it onto a snowflake frame , as well as a photo mat die , and then embellished it with a gingerbread man, Vintage Christmas lights, and sequined tulle. The Red Cardinal has a huge significance for me, so I incorporated him onto my cover. I wanted him to look extra special, so I spruced him up using red and black ink, as well as glossy accents .  For my first page, I began with a little Gingerbread couple sticker from the collection. This is neatly tucked into a small envelope I created
