Since I already had a perfectly good book to start with from last year, I only made slight changes to the cover and changed out a few pages inside. I present to you, December Daily 2009:
The red polka dot paper is flocked (yes, flocked!) and I absolutely love it. I can tell I'll be holding on to every little scrap of this stuff! The title was created on my computer and printed out on Vintage Cream cardstock. I used my Vintage Labels set from Papertrey Ink to add some embellishment and cut it out with my Label One die. The snowflakes are from my Rustic Snowflakes set and I used white acrylic paint and a foam brush to stamp them on my cover. I love this look!
On the inside, I swapped out a few pages to utilize some patterned paper that I LOVE right now, like this great paper from Cosmo Cricket:
And more of my favorite patterned paper from 7gypsies (it's flocked, too!). I love this stuff and manged to hoard a few pieces from last year and was lucky enough to find more at my LSS the other day:
And one more favorite from Melissa Frances, another paper I hoarded from last year:
I made my pages all different shapes and sizes and I just love how you can see some of them peeking out from the others. I am, once again, excited for this project! I know where I went wrong last year and I will not let it happen again! I will get it done, I will!
