December Daily Album 2014

I hope you’ve had a wonderful holiday season filled with joy and family.  I’ve been pretty busy with the holidays, projects, and work.  But, I have returned on this last day of the 2014 year to share my December Daily album that I’ve finished.  I’m happy with the way it turned out.  Even happier that I got to do one this year.

Just a heads up…to make up for not blogging in quite awhile, this will be a long post. 😉

Yep, I used the Magical Studio Calico Handbook that I planned on using for my 2013 December Daily, BUT didn’t get it (along with a few other Christmas supplies I ordered online) until March 2014.  I guess I can laugh about it now but at the time I was pretty upset about it.  Anyway, I couldn’t wait to use it.  I was excited because it was the first time I used this format for my December Daily album and I loved it.  It made the process quicker and easier during the busy holiday season.   I really love the red with trees design all over the cover of the album.  It’s SO pretty!  For this year, I used the Home for Christmas collection by Pebbles most of the time.

In the photo above, I added a cut piece of the Home for Christmas pattern paper to the opening of the front cover. It fit perfectly as my title for this years December Daily album.

In the photo below, I added another cut piece of the Home for Christmas Home for Christmas pattern paper to the side bracket along with some wood veneer letters and numbers by Studio Calico.  I used Q-Tips to dab some white paint onto the letters and some Rudolph Mr. Huey’s Color Mist onto the numbers.

My goal is to get it done before her next birthday coming up in March. LOL! And, I’ll post it up on my blog as soon as I can get it done. My hubby says What? You have to finish that album? Why don’t you change it to Payton’s almost 6th Birthday! HA HA HA…very funny!

The package has three different sizes of bells – small (which are cute and so teeny – tiny), medium, and large. The cute, teeny tiny ones are in this close-up photo.

December Daily: Days 1-9

Well, I’m still a little behind on my days, but I managed to get Days 1 – 9 done. I may go back and add more things here and there. I’ll share more photos with you if I do decide to add more to my pages. I’m also still deciding on the design of my cover so I don’t have that ready yet…I’ll share it after I’m done with it. With these pics, I’ll share the specific products I used on each page. Hope you enjoy them:
