I decided to try something new to me this year and make a December Daily Album. Here is a detailed look at the pages and a video of my album without any photos. I will do a video with the photos in the album in January so you can see how I used the flip flaps and other extras that I put into it.
I had a lot of fun with this! A list of materials used is at the end of the post. The entire album (with the exception of the 3-ring kraft binder) was cut using the Artbooking Cartridge from Close To My Heart.
I will post detailed photos on here tonight when the kids go to bed. So come back later to see the photos of these pages.
So I have a confession to make. I'm a clean and simple scrapbooker! Yup that is me - always have been and I always will be. That is what drew me to the Scrapbook Generation sketches and I fell in love. When I'm not using my How To Guides or Workshops on the Go kits, SG is where I head for some simple yet stunning sketches. That is why I am SOOO excited to be able to participate in a blog hop with other SG addicts like me :)
Without further ramblings welcome to the SG Blog Hop for December, if this is your first stop you might want to start at the Scrapbook Generation blogand then hop along from there. You should have arrived here fromLori's blog.
I also added a few extras from the Sparkle & Shine Embellishments. I love that the pattern paper comes with these zip strips like the one I added on top of the photos. The star was stamped with the Workshop on the Go stamp set.
I can't wait to get my holiday photos into these layouts (I created a few more I'll be posting throughout the month as well as my December Daily and a few other holiday projects so come back and see more)!
Thank you so much for stopping by!
You can find the SG sketches in their books and as downloads in the SG store, and there is a free one every month in case you wanted to try it out.
Next on the hop is Mandi, leave a comment on each blog and one person will receive a free sketch bundle of their choice from the store! The winner will be draw on December 9th, so you have one week to leave a comment.
In case you get lost at any point, here is the list all the blogs
Hi there Happy December :) This month will be super busy for me on the home front (I'm sure it is for all of you as well) but in addition to birthdays, school responsibilities and holiday activities we added buying a home and moving in to our list of things to do :)
Anyway, one of the first things I thought of when I saw the Close To My Heart December stamp set
Welcome to the December Hop! I am so glad you are here. If you just arrived this is a full circle hop so you can just go from blog to blog but if you want to start at the beginning (or see the full list) you can go to Adeline's blog. You should be arriving from Alyson's blog.
This month's special is the opportunity to get a brand new Picture My Life kit when you join Close To My Heart! This extends until December 15th (and makes the perfect gift for yourself or a creative person on your list this year). Our stamp of the month is called Special Care and is available only from December 1st through December 31st.
You can get this stamp set one of two ways:
1. Purchase directly from your Close To My Heart consultant or on my website here for $17.95
2. Place an order of $50 or more and get this set for only $5
With it being December I am busy with all the handmade gifts that I make for family and friends. I found a great recipe for creating liquid handsoap and immediately thought of this stamp set - it is perfect for creating the tag for my soap.
I turned the tag over and attached a stamped image and a piece of white cardstock to (1) provide a spot for writing on the tag and (2) cover the adhesive from the inside.
Here is another look at the completed project.
This set will work great for laundry room wall art, thinking of you cards, baby card and more. I have a baby card I created that will post tomorrow so come back and take a look at another way to use this stamp set.
Now it is time to hop on over to Wanda's blogand see what she created.
