December Daily - Post 2

My scrappy friends....I have had the best weekend!!  I spent most of the day Saturday working on my December Daily.  I'm trying to get most of my divider pages done as well as getting a lot of cuts completed on my Silhouette to make the "daily" process easier.  All I have to do now on a daily basis is just take the picture, print and journal.

Off topic LOL......They are starting a new "Clarity" series at our church that is just amazing.  Every time I leave there, I feel refueled and ready to tackle my new week.  I am truly blessed and feel so happy all the time.

OK enough rambling, here are lots of pictures I want to share with you.  This post is picture heavy so be prepared hahahaha.  I have completed my first 4 days of my DD except for the journaling which I will do tonight.  I have added journaling to some of the pictures in photoshop.

Hope everyone has a great week.

Cover page:

For the cover page I used Tim Holtz Grungeboard numbers and letters. 
I painted them, sprayed them with Lindy's Stamp Gang and added LOTS of Rock Candy Stickles.
Then I used the December Daily Ali Edward stamp set and stamped the sentiment: 
"Capturing the magical moments in December"
I stamped that on a banner die from MFT, added a brad and distressed with Vintage Photo.

Cover page:  I still have to finish it but I have not decided
what I want to insert in the two 4x6 slots......hhhmmmmm maybe something
Silhouette'ish ... hahahahaha
The Title:  December Daily 2011 is from the SIL

First divider page.  I still have to add "1" to it. 

Day 1:  I have to add the journaling to the side strip.   Those that know my family well
know that I have a son who is OBSESSED with baseball.  According
to him "Baseball IS LIFE!!!! so you KNOW my December Daily had to have a
baseball page.  Coincidently, December 1st he had a game.
The final game of the season was Saturday 12/3.  THE SHARKS ARE UNDEFEATED BABY!!
They are having a mini championship series which consists of two more games then it all
starts up again in January :)

Day two:  I have to add the number to the
divider page.  I will add it inside one of the circles.  I also have
to add a little journaling on the side strip.  My December Daily would
not be complete without a page of our "Cutie".  She had a deep dental
clearning done Friday and she was groggy the entire night - hense the pictures to the left LOL

I printed the picture in 6x8 and added a bit of journaling to it.  Just a random picture
of Cutie which I took last week.  It says: 
"Our Princess "Cutie". 
The one that makes our family complete!!
We love you!!

Day three:  I have to add the number to the divider page and
finish the 8 x 8 page on the left.
Kasi and I took Cutie to a new groomer.  HE IS AWESOME!!!  Then
we took her to get her picture taken with Santa.

The number border is cut using a Kerri Bradford design and the
"3" has gold stickles so that it stands out since it's the third day.

Day four:  Our home decorations.  I have to add the number to the
divider page but since it's a bingo card, I may change it out to something else.
I printed out a picture of my tree 6x8 and added the journaling  right
on the picture.  Thank you Dayi for showing me this fabulous idea ♥ (*wink*)
The journaling says:
This December we will be documenting
the 25 days leading up to Christmas.
We are truly blessed each and every day.  Thank you Jesus.
You are the reason for the season!!!

The rest of the pictures are just random divider pages that I ♥.

I created this divider from an acetate 12 x 12 that I cut down to the exact
size of my refill pages.  I tool two paper sacks, trimmed them, sewed them shut
and added stamping, sticker letters and bling.  I created the tags for the
kids to write down their letter to santa and leave it in the stocking.
"Santa always returns the letters to mommy so she can save them" (*WINK*)

For this specific divider, I cut down my 8x8 refill page, added a strip
of the acetate, used double sided sticky take, added charms, sewed on some
trim on the end, did some misc sewing and added pearl bling.

This divider page is actually an acetate I purchased at Joanns.  It's has white
swirls and bling along the edges and a birthday cake.  I covered the birthday cake
with card stock, added pattern paper and these glitter chipboard letters.
The back side of this is the same except it has the word JOY in green glitter.

OK folks hope you have enjoyed my first 4 December Daily pages.  On Monday, December 12th, I will post pictures of days 5-11.  Hopefully I will have all the numbers added to the divider pages as well as all the daily journaling.  BIG HUGS TO ALL!!! T
