I spent some much needed time today scrapbooking and working on my December Daily. I wanted to share with you the products I am using, the pages I created so far and a freebie. I try to do a page every day and I like to do the previous days page. As the day goes by I snap random pictures of my day, write down thoughts and memories and save important elements I want to include in an envelope near my work space. That way when I sit down to do the page I have everything I need.
This year I’m using a BasicGrey 7×9 journal. I found this at Michaels on clearance and picked up one along with several of the page protectors that come in 3 different configurations. You can find the same BasicGrey Capture Program Journaling Binder on Amazon for about $13 bucks here. I love the different page configurations and I really like having the pages in page protectors but because it is a binder you can add interactive elements as you want. I plan on recovering the outside and making it more festive.
I picked up this mambi sheets paper stack at Michaels over black friday weekend. I love the black white and gold color scheme. I think it’s a gorgeous color combo for Christmas and more unique too. Plus, I have a lot of stuff to match these colors whereas red and green is more scarce in my stash. I recommend going to Michaels and picking this up a paper stack with a coupon. The All That Glitters Mambi Sheets is $16 on Amazon.
With these supplies and some stuff from my stash I created the following two pages. The title page and the first page featuring the Christmas tree. The graphic that is over the picture of my Christmas tree is the freebie today. This is a transparent Oh Christmas Tree clip art PNG file that you can add to your photos using your favorite photo editing program. It comes with white text.
The ‘hello December’ title is a premium SVG file that you can buy here. It’s $0.99 and I really love it because it comes in one piece. You don’t have to attempt to glue the letter straight. The hello was hand lettered. The lines are fairly thick so it cuts beautifully at the size I used it at.
Until next time, happy crafting!
