I've never done a December Daily before, but I wanted to give it a try this year. Ali Edwards posted earlier this week with a place to link to foundation pages blog posts and I thought, "Hmmm... yes, maybe I should start this thing before the first day of December. Good idea, Ali." So I sat down last night and figured this whole thing out. This is what I'm going to do:
Page size: 4.25" by 5.5"
Base pages: Kraft Cardstock from Papertrey Ink
Distressing: Edges inked with Vintage Photo Distress Ink of all elements
With that background, here you can see what I came up with.
This is the way my pages are going to be set up. Base + photo + number + accent/journaling.
Pink Instax Mini 7S that I ordered today from B&H Photo and Video. I can't wait to get it! It'll be perfect. (Note: they also have the best prices on Mini refills that I've found. Only 13.75 for 20 exposures.)
Natalee by Studio Calico) for the numbers. I figure stamps would be easier (and cheaper) than letter stickers.
There you have it. I'll keep you updated as I decorate the cover and get started on my December Daily. This is going to be a challenge to myself; I'm not really the type of person who can stick with the same thing every day consecutively. Wish me luck!
I need to go make pretty things. I fly out to go home on Monday and will be gone for a whole week, so I have lots of work to get caught up on before I leave.
P.S.- If you're looking to get into the Christmas mood (I am!), you should check out the Glee Christmas album that came out yesterday. It's wonderful. :)
