Running late for my life...

Hmmm.... it's the 6th of December and no December Daily post yet. eek! You think that's late, actually I bought the album to do it last Christmas and didn't do it at all!

Anyways I have some photos of it to post, the photography is extremely average the light isn't good today but I really didn't want to use it as a reason to procrastinate.

The December Daily is an album to record all those things you do in December, all those fun Christmasy things that you forget about because you're so freakin busy. If you want to read up on it pop on over to Ali's blog and have a read.

I don't print my photos at home, so it will be empty for a little while, I might get to print some every week hopefully.

I will pop up a few photos every day, so check in and let me know what you think.

Soooooooo, the album isn't really fluro orange it just looks that way. Felt is bad to photograph, partly it's the fabric and partly my photography skills or lack thereof. I like the album though, it came with a few pieces of random shapes papers and generally a December daily is done that way, a bit different than my regular albums and I love the freedom of it.
Album by Making Memories

The title page was pretty easy work as the title had to fit into that small space.
Love this paper.
Paper - Making Memories Noel, Lettering - Making Memories Reverie

I am loving my Tim Holtz distress ink, can you tell? Walnut Stain is my favourite, everyone else seems to like TeaDye better but not me. For some reason in a small album or mini's I ink everything and in my 12x12's I don't use ink at all. Random. Who knew I had these ink rules.

Papers - Kaisercraft Poinsettias - Hero Arts Ribbon - May Arts Cuttlebug folder - Swiss Dots Cardstock - Bazzill Merry Christmas Metal tag - Kmart ha!

I decided not to put numbers on my pages early on in case I want to move them around, I will add them though as I put the photos on.
Papers - Kasiercraft Embellishment - K & Co

Off to prepare dinner now... life getting in the way of my crafting again!
Happy December

Just a little card today...

I know I said I'd have my December daily up today oops! I have done it I just haven't photographed it. I might get it done today yet, we'll see.

I made this simple wee card for a sweet lady Beth, who gives me these bags of ribbon scraps so that I can take them to Kindergarten for crafts. Just this week I received another bag full of red and green ribbons perfect for the children's Christmas cards. I am so grateful for this, Kindergarten doesn't always have the budget to do all the things we wish to do. She may never know how her kindness effects these little people, but I'm lucky enough to see them light up when they finish their creations and proudly take them home. I may just have to take the camera on Monday to see if I can capture a couple of those moments.

Anyways that was a lot of babbling for one little card!
