December Daily Albums

When I saw Marianne Mess' December Daily album, I knew I wanted to see more of it immediately. She was kind enough to share her book with us today, and it is a real treat...

She was inspired by Ali E, like many of us. Her book uses the Creative Imaginations Creative Cafe Spirit Scalloped Chipboard Binder (9x6.5).In her words, "I love when an album really reflects me as a person and an artist: cutting edge, yet traditional and a combination of all the bits and pieces of life I’ve picked up along the way."
When creating this book, she used mostly scraps from her stash. If it was too big to fit, she simply cut it down and made it work. Lots of texture & fonts--blended all together to make it work...
For paper and inserts, she used...
Cosmo Cricket, Basic Grey, Bazzill Basics Scalloped Rectangle Cardstock, Making Memories, Creative Imaginations, Bird Chipboard Coaster Book by Maya Road, Lucky Neutral Date 12x12 Transparencies by Creative Café...
I love how she used the bird chipboard and covered it with paper. I'm so lifting that idea!!
Some of the embellishments used are:
Tinsel Town Holiday Press Ons, EK Success Holiday Stamp, Making Memories, Seven Gyspies, Heidi Swapp Date Stamp, American Crafts, Scenic Route Parker, and Misc. Ribbon...

Thanks for sharing your December Daily, Marianne! I will be showing mine when I have a few photos to share. I'd love to see yours--so feel free to leave a link in the comment section!

Have a great weekend!
