I plan on making Tim Holtz's 12 Tags of Christmas again this year, IF Tim decides to do it again. I've been collecting Tim's products, Christmas stamps, ephemeral, paints, etc., etc., etc. I love Tim's Tags. It like having 12 days of classes with a Master Teacher.
Now I've decided to participate in Ali Edwards December Daily. I've sort of tried to figure out the album, but I do get the drift of it: document the first 25 days in December with photos. The important thing is to create your book ahead of time. This is exciting.
Tuesday I worked on the guts of the book. I created my photo page in PSE. I added my favorite and memorable Christmas songs on the bottom of my photo page, along with the day of the month.
I've made my own transparencies by painting circles. They look cool!
I need to work on my foundation pages. I'm using a cream cardstock at the base, then I plan on using a variety of Bo Bunny, Graphic 45, and several other of my favorite paper lines. My main goal for the book itself is to use my older products and try not to buy anything. We'll see how that goes.
First of all I made my cover for my December Daily over the weekend.
I added a separate title page "December Daily." The paper is from Websters Pages. I added Snow Cap to the house to look like a snowfall had occurred. The calender is a Tim Holtz stamp from Stampers Anonymous. I inked it with a combination of the Fall and Winter Limited Edition Distress Inks. The title was the most fun. I used Dabbers Espresso to "ink" up my foam stamps and stamp/paint the title.
I'll share the features of the album next Wednesday. I'm sure as I go along I will learn what to do and not do next time.
Don't forget in the midst of December Daily and (cross my fingers) 12 Tags of Christmas, D's Paper Studio will be hosting the 12 Days of Home for the Holidays.
Have a Crafty Day!
