December Daily

Hey there and Happy Friday! So happy that today is my last day of teaching for the year!! @ weeks off will be SO NICE~ And while I am off I will be sure to a catch up with my December Daily album. All has been documented in photos but not printed out. But I can show you what I have put together so far.

I of course bought the DD album that Trish put together and it was full of awesome goodies! Trish even has some awesome step by step directions for each page - love that! But I could tell right away that mine would take a different path - and that's ok -- it turned out super cute and I am having fun filling it all up!

I decided to make my cover with felt - and as you can see nothing was measured - and I am fine with that - just kinda wanted to homey feel to it. I did a lot of stitching kinda haphazardly and that worked out perfectly.

For the inside pages I utilized what Trish had already put together and made it work for my "vision". I loved that scallopped lace paper - so pretty - I didn't want to hide it so I put it first!
This page used a baseball card sheet that I cut to size. I actually did this in my album last year and I loved it so I put it to use again. Oh and I found the pack at the dollar store - so I am still using them from that same pack!

Inside of the kit there are many little envelopes that are so perfect for hiding some journaling or movie tickets, etc.













As you can see I just kind of went with the flow without too much thought going into it just so long as it was pleasing to me - and in the end that is all that matters right?
I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!
