prepping for the season...

It's the time of the year I love... Christmas is approaching and I always seem to have a crafty list as long as my arms. So many great ideas to put into play. Maybe one of these years I'll get a good jump start on the season and complete all of my lists.

On the top of my last few lists has been doing a December Daily. I love the whole idea, yet I'm never on top of things enough. This year I've tried to get started and am making progress. I envision a shabby chic, pages of all sizes and shapes, envelopes decorated and stuffed with journal and great embellishments.

To get started I've used some bits and bobs I had left over from my Crafty Secrets Christmas Cd's 5(Retro) and 6(Vintage) Christmas,  and created some journal tags to put into clear pockets. They were so much fun to create using all my leftover scraps. I hardly throw anything away, and it's paid off here:)

Using some dies, twine and buttons along with half pearls and some stickers its easy to create oodles of these. Pennants of all shapes, sizes and colours are seperated by some 3D tape and layered on top of one another.

For these I chose to repeat colours, patterns and shapes so they all have some uniformity throughout my journal. I hope to pop back soon with some other pages of my December Daily album.

Until then my friends!
