|Finally am posting some pictures of my December Daily 2010.
If you want to see all of the pages, you can view them on my flickr page.
I think this is my 3rd or 4th DD. Looking back, I learned 2 main things:
1. Don’t try to create the page ahead of time. Stick with the dates only and allow for creativity later.
2. I rarely have ever finished a DD once Christmas passes….so, I prepared up to day 25, added 2 more pages and that’s all. Obviously, I can always add more pages, if time allows.
This year, i wanted a “vintage-feel”.
Thanks for looking!
|I’m enjoying this project.
Not much pressure. Doesn’t require much time.
I should also be working on my December Daily for this year,
So much to do,
So little motivation.
|Yesterday was a good day! I actually scrapbooked for a while…and I decided to try out the Sunday Sketch from Studio Calico. You can see their sketch below…and then my version…|
|This is my son after getting his temps. I used some random keys for the masking and I think the vintage cards are from October Afternoon.|
|Next, I had a picture that I love of our dog, Chewy, waiting for his pancakes. My husband started a weekly tradition of Pancake Saturdays….hubby gets up and makes pancakes and bacon, while I make the coffee…we all look forward to Saturday mornings, the 3 of us + Chewy….|
|For the masking, I used some hearts that I had cut out with my Cricut.|
|…Most of the supplies used came from Studio Calico monthly kits…and I love the fabric Thickers!|
|Finally, I had a picture that I took of my new glasses. On the day that I turned 40, I went to my first eye-exam and ended up needing bifocul reading glasses. Welcome to the 40’s, lol.
For this layout, I challenged myself to simply grab random supplies and use it.
|The brown strips I bought a few years ago and it has sat in my stash forever.
Below it I used a polka-dot tape, from the $1.99 bin at Archivers.
|The “details”, I had cut out using my Cricut.
So, that’s all. Feels good to have scrapped some layouts, using supplies on hand.
Today’s the last day of summer break. Where did Summer go?
