I AM TOTALLY EXCITED....CHRISTMAS DAILY.....

Okay I am totally excited that I was able to complete one of these AMAZING CHRISTMAS DAILY journaling books....WOW WOW WOW ....I did it in a day in a half....along with cooking, cleaning, being a taxi and more.... Last week I had released a huge set called CHRISTMAS DAILY...the idea for me to design this awesome set came from Carol Sheetz.......What an awesome idea she had...She also referred me to the one that Ali Edwards did this year and the rest was HISTORY....I decided to use the same concept as Ali.....basically her concept was not worry about decorating the book with a bunch of bells and whistles ....(embellishments...smile)....but more focusing on truly living each day from Dec. 1-25 and jotting things along the way....so that is what I did...I just put very little on each page and plan to sit the book in the kitchen along with a pen and a camera....each day any of the 6 of us in the house can jot down their thoughts, take a photo and decorate the page....I AM TOTALLY JUICED about this book....I used all kinds of scraps that I had left over from cards, stickers and more....One awesome thing that I just designed over at the Cutting Cafe that really came in handy with this book is a new LINE SET OF BACKGROUNDS STAMPS...this set was perfect for the book...as you will see in all of the pages there is some type of journaling tag/card for whoever does a page to write on....these were all made using this new set....you can view the set here....
Okay here are a few pages from my CHRISTMAS DAILY BOOK....
here is the cover...I took two pieces of chipboard and covered the fronts and backs of them.

view of all of the pages inside
that number 1 is from the CHRISTMAS DAILY SET
that red circle was made using the LINES BACKGROUND SET
another tag I made using the LINES SET...this page is also in half.
hopefully on this page, I won't be the one journaling...my handwriting is HORRIBLE. this journaling sheet was also made using the NEW LINES BACKGROUND STAMP.
another half page, you can see page 10 behind it.
this is just a bulb in a page protector all by itself...just cut the page protector in half and stapled the sides...see I told ya really quick...BUT OH SO FUN...journaling will just go on the top of the bulb....that other journaling tag behind it goes with page 12.
so do any of you LOVE KRAFT paper as much as me....LOVE THIS STUFF
hopefully I will be putting a HUGE picture of my little one...wanting to open up a present 2 DAYS BEFORE CHRISTMAS...
This particular page, I didn't glue anything down besides the number 25 and the tree under it...just dropped the black photo corners and tag inside....NOT SURE WHAT WILL BE GOING ON THIS DAY.....so that's all folks...BASIC AS CAN BE...JUST THE WAY I LIKE IT....


Okay as some of you may know, I had originally offered this set for free as a way of thanking my awesome customers over at the CUTTING CAFE......there were over a thousand people that downloaded the file...TOTALLY AWESOME....well just in case a few of you didn't get a chance to download the file, I am going to put the download back up through midnight of Thanksgiving..............
THIS OFFER IS OVER.....

OK -- you have totally inspired me to create my own album! You make it seem so doable both creating and keeping up. I know what I'll be doing this long weekend. :-) I think this is the year to give it a try.

Wow - I love this album: it looks so cool. So much work went into this and it shows. Great job. Every year I think about doing one of these and I can't get started because I get easily distracted and then do other things..........I do get to enjoyalbums made by others (like yours) and just hope my engine goes far enough to get one done........there's always next year, right? I run out of steam by mid December. Thanks so much for the download........love all the words and numbers which is so helpful to consider when making one of these babies.......hugs, Patti
