December is almost upon us which means times are getting exciting for those creating a December Daily type album. If you've been following my blog within the last month, you'll know that I'm doing Project + December. I'll be combining my Project Life and December Daily all into my Project Life album. In December, I'll have a Page at the left of my blog where you can simply click to find all my Project December posts in one spot. I'll be updating my blog with my Project December posts weekly as I get the pages and inserts completed. I'll also be having lots of other fun posts including my fireplace mantel makeover inspired by an antique shop visit, the much anticipated slow cooker posts + recipes, more Christmas cards + packaging and lots more. I hope you'll join in on the fun!
So today I have one more pocket type insert to show you that I have ready and waiting for my Project December album. My product picks are papers, buttons and vintage images from October Afternoon's Make it Merry collection, My Mind's Eye enamel dots, red & white baker's twine, parcel tags from my shop, vintage postage stamps, Washi tapes and an 8 x 10 Project Life page protector.
First up I trimmed the red and green plaid paper to 8 x 10. Next I adhered vintage October Afternoon images to some parcel tags.
I adhered them to the OA poinsettia patterned paper then stitched over all three tags. I embellished the postcard image with my vintage stamps + a date stamp with the 2012 Christmas date. I finished the tags up with a brad, an enamel dot and a tied button.
Using several of the Washi tape, I adhered the tag flap section to the 8 x 10 plaid paper. Lots of layers of Washi tape should keep the flap adhered nicely. I might add a photo under this flap, showing the cards all displayed or perhaps a list of who sent us cards this year in a typed list format.
I inserted the 8 x 10 portion into the 8 x 10 page protector. The page protector is what will create the clear pocket that I'll insert all of the holiday cards we receive. I might tuck in the cancelled postage from envelopes too for fun.
And that's it. I love this one and can't wait for my pages to be filled with holiday goodness. So tell me, how are you coming along with your December Daily album? I would love to hear about it!
