There are tons of posts and projects related to scrapbooking holiday activities. I think most of them are called "December Dailies." At first I didn't think I would want to do something like this because I just wouldn't have enough activities and wouldn't have the discipline to get it done. I admire everyone who is doing these. Now, every time I do something holiday related this year I think that is something that could be scrapbooked in a daily album. There is still that discipline thing; maybe next year.
For now, I'm just doing a page or two on favorite activities. I did one last year on holiday decorating and here is one on making Christmas cards. I started doing them for myself a few years ago and then I made some for my Mother to give and for my aunt to give. I also make a lot of Operation Write Home holiday cards and we've done a couple of Christmas themed card classes in the past couple of years.
For this page, I spent a lot of time on the background. I wanted to capture the images I'd used on the cards without overwhelming the photo. Several of the squares of Crate Paper's Peppermint collection are stamped with gray or black images I used on cards this year. Then I placed them on the diagonal and zig zagged over the whole thing.
The page is for Scrapbooker's Anonymous challenge in December to use a holiday theme, glitter and tags. I'm not a big glitter fan but did have these Thickers and of course the page is holiday themed. For the tags, once I got started it was hard to stop. I think there are 6 - several from the stickers and die cuts with the collection kit.
The page also has label stickers as instructed in the final Products You Love class at Two Peas. Through the 2P's classes, I've really seen how versatile label stickers can be. These are part of the collection kit but I also bought quite a few October Afternoon label stickers in my last order.
Have you made Christmas cards yet? I mailed mine late last week. I haven't received many cards yet. Oh, that is another thing I could put in a December Daily is a photo of the cards we receive.
Thanks for visiting today!
