December Album 2016

{December Daily 2016} Creating the Page Protectors

Hi there! So today will be short and sweet because it’s my birthday! Yay! But I did want to keep moving forward with my process for creating my December Daily this year. Today’s video is about how I created my page protectors for my 6×12 album, but really it should be titled A Really Detailed Video on How to use Your Fuse Tool. Ha! So have a look, if you are interested!

I did want to include a note here and the Pinnable image I created, that shows the different options of page protectors that I created for myself.

Design Options for 6x12 Page Protectors

My goal of course, in creating these page protectors, is to allow myself options in the month of December. I will be placing the page protectors into the album so I can plan for the days, but I also know that there will be days that I might want to change the design or add another page protector into the album so I can accommodate the photos and stories I am wanting to tell. This is part of what makes the December Daily process work so well!

Also, here is one more sneak from inside the album, in case you came here through the Main Page and did not see the image above:

Ok, my next video I will be working with transparency dividers, and I am really excited to show you those. I have always loved using transparencies in my December Daily albums, and am really happy to include them this year as well. I hope to bring you that video tomorrow! See you then!

{December Daily 2016} Introduction and First Process Video | Creating the Album Itself!!!

Oh you guys, it’s the very best time of the year and the very best project of the whole year! I seriously get a giant lump in my throat every year when it is time to begin December Daily, and this year is no different! Here is my Introduction Video for this year:

And then, because that just isn’t enough for one day, I am also sharing my process video for how I created my album this year:

My album this year is an American Crafts album that was originally 12×12, and I cut it down to 6×12. Once I cut it down, I covered it in several coats of white heavy body gesso.

I then added a few simple embossed images to the front: the December stamp is from the Paislee Press stamp set included in that kit from Ali Edwards, designed by Liz Tamanaha. The 2016 stamp is from Kerri Bradford. I also added the tiny round Joy piece, from the Ali Edwards Main kit.

On the spine, since there was no label holder I only added this image from one of the art screens available in the December Daily offerings from Ali Edwards. I used Heidi Swapp art paints, and the result is beautiful.

I also have a few sneaks from inside the album to share with you! I plan to share my process for creating my foundation pages, start to finish, in the next few days.
