First Day Let's Celebrate December Daily- Part 1 - Adventures With Ellie

First Day Let's Celebrate December Daily- Part 1

Happy Wednesday All. Also Happy Decemeber! How did that happen is what I have been wondering all day.

Well with the start of December comes the start of my sharing of what I will be doing with my December Daily Album. Today I wanted to share an accent that I made for today. I seriously was channeling Jenn McGuire & Tim Holtz last night when I was working on this little piece.



To create this accent page I used a sheet of  acetate punched the 3 holes to create a place to attach to my album. Then the fun began I took one of Tim  Holtz Tags and got to work.. First I die cut w/my Slice the #1 and used it as a mask as I got busy with different colors of Distress inks. Then I thought well I love candy canes as much as the next one so I grabbed my cute $1.00 Micheal's Craft Store stamps and stamped with Watermark ink and embossed them with clear powder and added more Distress ink and wiped off the excess ink to reveal it. Then I used the sheet I had used to cut out my Number and used that as a mask to be able to stamp the letters inside the number (its another $1.00 stamp set). Added a bit of ribbon that I have in my little jar of left overs (I just can't throw ribbon way that is AGAINST the Law lol) I attached them to my album using my little stapler and adding brads for the accents. On the side of the number I added a bit a bling and at the bottom I added a bit of green ribbon trim to finish the tag off.


When I finished and attached the tag to my acetate sheet what did I see behind it? The adhesive.. OH NO can't have that.. There I went and channeled Jennifer again and remembered what she does cover it up.  So I die cut the label and covered the back w/it.   I will take a picture later on today and share the back of it as the other side of that patterned paper (which is from My Mind's eye) actually has a ledger print where I will be able to journal. 

I have yet to take any pictures because it is a rainy,cloudy very dark day and well my pictures are not coming out as I would like but I will try later on.


Well I hope you enjoying stopping by and get inspired to try to make your own Album to remember your Holidays.  I hope to come with the end of my First Day but if not I will share tomorrow.

As always thank you so much for stopping by !
