December Daily 2011 (Starting Foundation) - Adventures With Ellie

December Daily 2011 (Starting Foundation)

Once again Ali Edwards has started to bring us the awesome project of December Daily.  For me it makes me smile extra big as it was actually the reason last year I thought of starting up again with my scrapbooking so you could say its a mini happy Anniversary for me too.

 This year  Studio Calico & Ali teamed up and had themselves one INSANE amazing Kit available . Unfortunately it was out of my super squeeze budget

Of course I had to do it again this year so I decided to gather up supplies I've had and a few I purchased to start to create my album. Today I will share what I have so far. I am waiting on a couple of goodies from Two Peas to be able to have the last bits to finish my album.

This year I've decided I'm not going to until the 31st. Instead until only the 25th. Also I thought why not use a clear album & so that is where I started. Picked up ideas from Pineterest as well as Ali and so far this what I have.

I have been working on right now on 1-12 even though even those are missing. I plan on using Ali's Dec Daily Overlays for the picture of the day. I am purposely having lots of pockets this year so I can keep any memorabilia and journaling.

 This is the cover to my album :

Since the cover is clear I wanted to use something that felt like December & I knew I had to use one of Kerri Bradfords- December Additions - The Pages I used the snowflakes page & cut it w/Vellum. I guess w/the light you can see the adhesive but otherwise you can't see it in natural light. I used American Crafts for a simple title of this year. (If you do use them add a bit more adhesive to them so they can stick & be a bit more permanent.)

I saw got the Confetti page from Ashley at her Etsy store. I had purchased one before & thought I'd try to make one for my album. I don't sew so I figured a way to make my own w/no sewing.

I cut the number "8" with my Silhouette and the confetti as well. I'll have a separate post on how I created it as I plan on making a couple more of them.

So far I am pretty happy w/what I have & can't wait to have all the pages complete & waiting for the December fun to being.

Will you be joining along and making a December Daily this year. I would love if you would share what you have done so far. As always thank you so much for stopping by.
