I have been wanting to do a December Daily Album for a long time, but I knew with my schedule that there was no way that I would have the time to dedicate taking pictures and journaling everyday. Then I opened the Annual Inspirations from Close to My Heart and I saw my answer – the My Crush Holiday Happenings Book! A Kraft hardcover, spiral bound book packed with 30 – 8¼” × 6½” pages in a mix of styles: printed vellum; printed, cardstock-weight; and page protectors in various styles. You’ll notice that I also couldn’t pass on the My Crush Holiday Happenings Assortment and My Crush Holiday Happenings Badge Buttons.
I embellished my cover with the word Christmas and 2014 cut from gold glitter paper with my Cricut Artbooking cartridge. I love the Glitter Paper from Close to My Heart as it is Cricut compatible and doesn’t shed.
I also took some time to sort threw the Holiday Happenings Assortment and pick a few of my favorites to pre-insert into my book as you’ll see in these pictures.
Of course no good project can go without some inspiration from Pintrest so I searched December Daily Album and came up with some magnificent ideas there as well. Including some sketches to use for my pictures.
I can’t wait to share more of my album as December progresses.
