December Daily


Hi scrappers, this is Kate from Sassy and Scrappy and I'm excited to share the foundation of my December Daily album with you.  I'm sure many of you have heard of this, but if not, it came from the mind of the very creative and talented Ali Edwards.  I purchased a kit from Studio Calico this year and it included the album, paper, embellishments, photo sleeves and stamps.

To decorate my cover I used some Mister Huey mist, twine, ribbon, border stickers and alpha letters.  My usual style is a little cleaner, but I'm happy with the color and texture. 


A picture of the inside cover of my album.  I actually love it and kind of wish it was on the outside cover, but it just felt too big and bulky.


These daily cards are a product created by Ali Edwards and there are a variety of colors and styles.  I chose to print my cards on kraft card stock with a green border.  The album is an off white color and so I didn't want to print on white card stock, I felt like it clashed.  I'm really happy with the way my cards turned out.






These 4x6 chipboard pages were also included in the kit.  Some of them I covered with paper and others I painted in coordinating colors.  I have an example of a painted page in the picture below.


Day 1-my apologies for the blurry picture.  The story I focused on was our annual family outing to the tree farm.  The journaling on the left tells the story of the picture and the rest of the day.





Day 2-a very uneventful day for me.  The picture shows a pile of "things" I collected during my errands.  Some days are a little less exciting than others, but that's life.


Day 3-I chose to use a picture I took while out with friends playing BINGO.  I love the wood veneer letters I used, and they seemed to fit the retro look of the BINGO cards perfectly.


Day 4-my sweet nephew in the tub.  I just can't get enough of that face.

And there you have it my friends.  Next month I'll include more photos from my album.  I'm sure it will include a lot more embellishments and details.  Thank you for visiting today and I wish you all the happiest of holidays.
