December Daily 2013 D's Style

I enjoy creating my December Daily each year.  Ali Edwards inspires me with her graphic designs, her photos, and motivation for December Daily.

I create my own "kit."  This year I'm using the Snap System from Simple Stories and the paper from Graphic 45's The 12 Days of Christmas.  I'm currently creating 25 tags one for each day.  For now, I would like to share with you the cover.
(click on the photos for a detailed look)

When I was creating my cover I kept singing the old song "Silver and Gold" from the 1964 CBS Special "Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer" sung by Burl Ives.  It so reminded me of my childhood and my children's Christmases when they were young.  I needed a keepsake to remember those memories.  

I painted the bare part of the album with Gesso then added Glass Bead Gel to create the look of falling snow.

I used Blue Fern Studios chipboard Shabby Flakes, Baroque Tree, Let It Snow, and Tattered Diamond Bits.  I ink up the chipboard with Ranger's Embossing Ink and added Ranger's Queens Gold and Silver Embossing Tinsel to the respective pieces.  

I added American Crafts white flower ribbon, Tim Holtz Idea-ology's book corners, a Wilton doily, and the center of the doily with a free digi download that I added Xmas Stickles to.   To the mix I had to use a few sequins. 

Thus is my cover.  Onward and Upward with the 25 tags. 

12 Days of Home for the Holidays
