December Daily 2012: Cover, First Few Pages, & Day 1

November went by so fast. Can’t believe we’re in December. I started working on my December Daily album and wanted to share it with you. This year I decided to go with the Sleigh Ride Collection by Crate Paper, the Wonderland Collection by Studio Calico, and the Once Upon a Christmas Collection by Little Yellow Bicycle for my December Daily. I’ll also mix in items from previous collections and some new stuff.

For the front, back, and inside covers, I hoarded my supplies from the Once Upon a Christmas Collection by Little Yellow Bicycle. I love this image of Santa and used it for my front cover. This pattern paper is called Vintage Santa/Brown Houndstooth. I colored the image of Santa using some colored pencils. I used a Holly Jolly Clear Stamp (59216) from the Hollyday Collection by American Crafts for my album title.

I tried to keep my December Daily simple, traditional, and a bit modern for this year. Mostly just having fun with it. I hope you’re having fun with your December Daily (if you’re joining in this year). I’ll try my best to stay on track and not fall behind on it this year. I’ll post more of my album as I go. So far, so good. Happy to be doing it again. Happy December and Happy Creating, Everyone!
