I have never done a December Daily and thought it sounded like a fun idea but I needed to do something small and simple. My book is just a 4x6" album. I will put one or two pictures and some journaling/embellishments in each day. I think my kids are going to love this little album.

Here is the front of my album:

I did my little title cover with the brand new A Day In December stamp set and the Stitched 3 x 4 Journal Die. Every single stamp in that little collage is from the new A Day in December stamp set. 

I made a calendar for my first page along with some journaling cards to add details to along the way.

For these I used the A Day In December Stamp set, the new Get Schooled stamp set along with Type Calendar stamp set and the Stitched 3x4 Journal Die and the Stitched 4x6 Journal Die.

I stamped and cut or die cut a bunch of miscellaneous embellishments for my book as well.

All of the above come from the new A Day In December stamp set (except for the Stitched Boots Dies).

And some other items to add right in with my pictures.

I have the days of the month on the Build a Banner Dies so that I can easily keep track of each day's events. A lot of these sentiments came from the A Day In December stamp set but the Stitched Fun Ticket die's sentiment is from the FREEBIE from the sale. It is called Shine Bright. I also used the Vintage Stitched Label Dies and the  Christmas House stamp set for the sentiment "At Christmas, all roads lead home!" I used the What a View Die, the Stitched Heart Layering Dies and the Label Font to make a little embellishment for a picture with Santa. And I used the Just Simply Live set for the other dies and stamps above.

I'm pretty excited to put this book together. It should be nice and easy now that I have all of my little journal cards and accent pieces ready to go. Have a wonderful day! Hugs- Glora

    I am so so excited to start my DD and you totally inspired me to create today! I love the items you made for the book. I think my kiddos will like it too. I like the idea of creating my own paper with all these amazing stamps! plus kraft paper is my love ;)

  27. Making some of the embellishments ahead of time is a wonderful idea. I often make die cuts to the very smallest of papers to have extra on hand and use up what's left after die cutting. Good luck with the book.
