December Daily Album : Day 14 + 15 + 16

It is definitely starting to fill up now (which means I think I need to get some bigger rings to hold it all together).

Day 14:

(Patterned papers: Making Memories; Rub On & Transparency: Hambly)

(Merry Felt: Fancy Pants; Bakers Twine: Shim + Son’s; Word Stickers: Making Memories)

And moving on to the back of Day 14 and the beginning of Day 15:

(Patterned Paper: Martha Stewart; Scallop Punch: Marvy; Santa Paper + Accent: K&Company)

And moving on to the back of Day 15 and the beginning of Day 16:

(Patterned Paper: Basic Grey; Small Felt Flowers: American Crafts; Epoxy Circle Sticker: Love, Elsie)

To make the circle I punched through the printed out photo/journaling block + punched through some patterned paper for the back. I taped a piece of transparency on the back of the photo paper and placed the two circle accents back to back. Makes a nice little window through to the other side.

And the back of Day 16:

(Green Patterned Paper: Making Memories; Epoxy Circle: Anna Griffin)

While looking for that red polka-dot patterned paper on Martha’s site tonight I came across these cool ornaments: red + white candy. These are really pretty too.

Also, if you are looking for a good sale this week check out Designer Digital’s “Double D’s Days of Christmas.” They are also offering a freebie each day of the week (from the 14th through the 26th – it does look like you need to register to access the freebie area of the site).

Hope you have an excellent, festive, spirit-filled week.

    I just love this album so much, it just gets better and better! I think I may try to put together a transparent album between Christmas and New Years since I’m off from work! You should have enabler alerts on this blog because between Hambly and now Fancy Pants, I’m doing a lot of shopping! I guess tis the season. :)

    Thanks for posting your album it is truly an inspiration.
    I decided to do one of my own. Although I wasn’t able to start ahead of time and get the base pages ready. The pages I have been doing are moving along famously though.
    I’m not into the transparency thing but I am experimenting with using different sizes and that has been AWESOME. So much fun doing something different each day.
    Just wanted to say thanks.
    Here is a link to my album and blog.

    Good Morning Ali.
    Thank you for your amazing inspiration. I would like to ask you a question. What kind of camera do you use. My husband is purchasing me a new camera, and I love all your photos.
    Wishing you and your family a fabulous Holiday Season.

    Ali – you rock! I love logging on everyday and seeing how your album is progressing. Someday I will do that too. My focus this year is taking pictures to fill up one I made a few years back that you inspired – the black one with the christmas paper circles (like a domino). Thanks for always inspiring us! Stacy

    Ali, How do you take pictures of these projects without getting a glare or blurriness? When I use my flash there is a glare, if I don’t it is blurry. What setting should I change on my camera? Thanks for sharing! Cara

    Ali – thank you so much for sharing your art and your process with us – truly inspirational! I’m taking Shimelle’s christmas journal class and it has made my holiday to spend that creative time … every day. I also really enjoy the quotes that you post in your side-bar and wondered where you find them? are you just a much better google-r than I or do you have a secret source?! this one “There are a thousand blessings in every moment, if you look. Each breath and heartbeat, every color, texture, taste, smell. A lifetime of blessings, beauty, love.” is absolutely beautiful. Again, many many thanks. – Mary

    Really enjoying this daily album of yours. I made a really sweet little 3×5 kind of more of an index card deal on a ring. Meant to do some each day or even every few days. Have only managed a couple of days.
