I bought the Studio Calico DD kit with the intention of having my base pages done before December but the kit didn't arrive until December 1st :( Because December is so crazy busy for me so my window of opportunity had closed. But hey... starting so late means I have a lot more inspiration to draw on from others that have completed their albums, that's a plus right!
So I scoured the net and pinned a few images and...
...here's the front cover. I had to get a little creative with this as I managed to get a chocolate smudge on it...gahhh! So a doilie was always going to be a part of the cover...hehehe.
Note to self: Don't eat Christmas chocolates while crafting.
Then glued squares of patterned paper around the edge, across half to create a background for the journal pages. The journal pages were based on Cathy Zielske design and digital stamp sayings are from Ali Edwards store.
This is the layout I finally decided on. One side is the journal/chipboard insert and the other is a plastic pocket for photos. I will have to get just a little more creative for some of the days, I have heaps of photos to include and not enough plastic pockets. Just not sure how to display them, I'm thinking I need pull out shizz-nazz stuff or accordion style flip pages. Still working on that part!
So there you have it, this is what my December Daily 2012 looks like!
