December Daily 2016: I Finished!!

Hello Everyone! I am pleased to announce that I FINISHED MY DECEMBER DAILY! YAY! If you want to see a flip through of the whole album check out THIS VIDEO
This is a really photo heavy post but I wanted to include all the photos in one post. 

I used the Mistletoe Kisses Collection from Simple Stories. You can see how I made the cover in THIS VIDEO.

For the first page I wanted to keep it as plain as possible since I wanted the large photo to show through the pockets. 

 The "december stories" acrylic words is from Pretty Little Studio.

I took this photo with my cellphone and used the Color Story App to edit and add the stars.

I used Bella Blvd. paper on the back of the photo to make it sturdier.

Since I live far away from my family I included photos my mom and my sister sent me from their tree.  

In this layout I included a pocket to add a hidden photo. I used the candy as a pull tab.  

I also tried a new recipe so I decided to include it in my book!

In the 2x8 shaker pocket I added adhesive bradz from Simple Stories back to back!  

I thought this card needed a small extra detail and I stamped all over this card using white.

I saw that the Ali Edwards kits had really big tags and I loved that. Lucky me, I found these huge tags at Tuesday Morning for $1.99.

On December 6th my daughter read "Olivia Counts Down to Christmas" so in the little pocket she added her own Countdown to Christmas. 

On the shaker pocket I added sequins and acrylic stars from Pretty Little Studio.

This day we had breakfast with Santa. I used the big tags for portrait 4x6 photos.

On the back of the tag I made this Christmas tree shape with little pieces. I was inspired my Melinda Spinks to do this.

The big red foil numbers are from the Yuletide Collection from Pink Paislee.

This is the least Christmas-y spread on the album. I used products from Studio Calico.  

This day we decorated gingerbread houses and I included the box in the album.

On the little pocket on the right I hid a tag with a Shortbread Cookie Recipe.

On the 21st I had a cookie marathon so I documented the cookies I made.

This is a really old My Mind's Eye Collection. It worked perfect for this day. The huge paper is for journaling and making the photo on the back sturdier.

I took a photo of the cookie boxes I made as gifts and printed the photo 6.5 x 8.5.

Foil is so difficult to photograph! I wish you could see how pretty this looks in real life! On the Santa photo I added some glitter and shape sequins and I sealed the pocket with my Fuse Tool.

The back of this foil clear is plain red so I tried to mirror the 25 on the back.

These cards are from Elle's Studio. I asked my daughter to journal a little bit about Christmas Day.

In the last pocket I included pieces and manuals from their toys and projects my daughter made at school like the Grinch!

I hope you enjoyed these pages. Thank you so much if you made it all the way to the bottom! Did you finished your December Daily? 


April Lilli Featuring Winter Wonderland from Simple Stories

Hey Everyone! We are half way through January which means you still have 16 more days to get the Winter Wonderland Collection at April Lilli for 20% OFF! 

I made this cluster with the Bits and Pieces, and the 4x6 Sticker Sheet. I also added twine from May Arts.  

 To the cluster of paper I added a 6x6 Paper from the Pad. I always recommend to get the Collection Kit because it comes with the Winter Wonderland 12x12 Sticker Sheet and all the papers. A few of these items are on this sticker sheet.

I added a few items from the 6x12 Chipboard Stickers a and I used Tombow Foam Tabs on the Bits and Pieces.

I hope you enjoyed this layout! Make sure you check out the rest of the team! Stay tuned to February to see what will be the Featured Product next month!
