December Daily 2009 : Day One

01_DecemberDaily2009

WELCOME TO DECEMBER DAILY 2009

Here's to keeping it simple: a photo, a few words, and a mini flash card from Kari Craft all tucked into the pocket of my album.

I may add something from later today on the back of this photo or I will use the back as part of Day Two. I am thinking about stitching along the top after I make something for the back.

SUPPLIES : 
25 Days of December Photo Overlays (made it larger and moved the line in Photoshop); Magic Flash Card from Kari Craft; Garamond

Here's what the page looked like before adding the content:

SCRAPBOOKING FOR GOOD : I recently donated signed copies of my books Life Artist, A Designer's Eye for Scrapbooking 2, Sharing Your Story, and an original canvas from my Life Artist book to Becca Sutton who is raising money for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation. These items are all available for bidding through an auction she is hosting here.

    Thanks for the inspiration. I am doing a December Daily for the first time.
    I did our Advent picture in the morning and had it all ready to put into the book last night. However, I ended up having an unexpected experience last night. I get to decide or add another picture on the back.
    This is so much fun! Thanks again.

    Ali, how do you find all these great little shops, that sell such useful stuff for scrapbookers, on Etsy. If I try to search on paper goods, I get sucked in for hours.

    Hi Emily - I use an HP Photosmart B8550. This is my second HP Photosmart printer and I really like them - not super expensive and the quality has been really good.

    I haven't had that problem ReNi - I do both printing at home and uploading to a developer. So far so good (6 years or so).

    Hi Heldy - I have not created a pre-made album for Shutterfly like the Everyday life album. I do have digital templates available through Designer Digitals that you can customize with your own papers and such. They can be found here: http://www.designerdigitals.com/digital-scrapbooking/supplies/product_info.php/products_id/8601
