Happy Wednesday! I am excited to post about a new project I am working on. It is a December Daily Album documenting the 25 days up until Christmas. The idea is Ali Edwards' and you can read about it on her blog here. I think that this will be a wonderful project that I will cherish years from now. Now on to the pages I have done so far.
It is the tabbed acrylic pages from Zutter. On the acrylic I tied a bow with some ribbon I had lying around. I painted the bare chipboard numbers with Tim Holtz Distress Crackle Paint and because it tends to chip off I heat embossed it with clear embossing powder to help it stick and give it some shine. On the tab I added a little bling. On the cream cardstock under the cover I stamped the circle with acrylic paint then printed "days of" on the same color cardstock and cut it out and inked the edges. I stamped "Christmas" with some Studio "G" mini alpha stamps on the same color cardstock and inked the edges of that also.
I havent done page one yet but I am thinking about a red envelope with a christmas card inside. Not sure...anyways...
I used a transparency frame with a AC Thicker number.
I used an envelope that I learned how to do from Marion at http://www.apieceofcraft.com/ I embossed the tag with snowflakes using bridal embossing powder.
This is a random chipboard tab from my stash.
I used some Making Memories paper with a rub-on number.
This is a page from a $1 scalloped chipboard album. I cut one side straight and covered in patterned papers. The back side I stamped brackets with acrylic paint around a scrap of lined paper.
I found these Christmas recipe cards at Micheal's. This will be a great page for making cookies! I glued two different ones back to back.
This is a peice of transparency and I glued a patterned paper tree to it. The number is a felt Thicker.
Well, that is all I have so far. Its fun to hunt for different things to make the pages out of. I can see now though that I need bigger rings to bind it with. Happy Scrapping!
