December Daily 2011 - Foundation Pages

I can't believe that it is time for the December Daily album again! This will be my 4th year doing this project and I love it more each year. It's a great way to get into the magic of the holiday season. This year I am changing how I do things. I am leaving most of my pages blank, I am not even adding in numbers for most of the days, to keep things more free when I  add in my photos and whatever else I have for the day. I think this is part of the reason that I did not finish my album last year, it was too hard to change and I got bored with it.

Here is my cover page for this year. I used a piece of wood paper and cut it down to 5x7. I added some Fab Rips from Studio Calico around the outside and stitched a piece of fabric on the front. I stamped the December on a gold piece of paper and cut it out along with some other embellishments.

I have been checking out the foundation pages that Ali created for her album this year and I loved the stitched page protectors. Here is one of the few that I am still adding to the album.
Most of my pages are just card stock in white, red and green but I do have a few pages that I have added numbers too.
So that is the start of my album! I am really excited to get started, I have even been thinking about starting this weekend. I will try to be better this year about sharing my album in progress.

Are you working on a December Daily this year? I would love to see it if you are!

It is Beginning to Feel Like Christmas

They are putting up the decorations in the park outside my house and I have been busy working on cards for my classes. I have also been working on the foundation for my December Daily album that I will share with you all this week.

Today here is a look at the cards I am teaching today.

Are you getting ready for Christmas yet?

iPhone Photo Love

Just thought I would share some of my favorite iPhone photos from the past few months.

I got a little carried away taking photos of Cinderella's castle when we were waiting for the parade at Disney World in September.

Happy Monday!
