SUPPLIES : #2: Tim Holtz; Basic Uppercase Stamps: Hero Arts; Joy Letters: Little Yellow Bicycle; Ink: StazOn Black Cherry; Journal Card: Jenni Bowlin

Today I worked with a baseball card page protector that was cut down to fit inside the 8x8 page protector that came with the album I am using. I really like keeping a couple of them "open" to the pages that follow. 

Here's a look at the page inside the album:  


Here's the before image: 

And here's a look at what the photo I put on the back of Day One:

I was thinking this morning about the process of building my December Daily. I was thinking how I don't always love the individual pages but what I do love is the totality of the project, the end result. Don't let a lack of love for any one page keep you from moving forward and don't let a quest to make it all perfect stop you from documenting the goodness of the season. 

As I begin opening up my Christmas tubs and transforming our home into a den of twinkle lights I am reminded how much I love to savor this season. 

Bring on the twinkle. 

I also have a few new holiday things available at Designer Digitals 


second volume of December Daily templates to go along with the first


If you need some simple gift tags I created a new set that are now available at Designer Digitals. The downloadable file includes PDF files that are all set up and ready to be printed (in red & green). These were all punched with a Marvy 2-Inch circle punch


If you are still looking for fun digital or printable numbers to add to your December Daily these Half-Circle Number Embellishments I released back in July would also work really well. 


I posted a video tutorial on how to work with these elements here.

In addition I put together a short tutorial on working with the 25 Days of December overlays that I used on my photo in Day One. You can click on the link below to see a larger version.
