December Daily

Last year I looked in awe of Janelle Wind's 'December Daily Journal'..... it was just beautiful! This year, she decided to do another...... and I decided I might too!! This is Ali Edwards idea, you can read about her 2008 album here. So, Friday night I set to work to get the foundations of my book.... I made my pages all different sizes - to make it more 'scrappy' and I think it turned out a treat! Today, I will share with you some of my favourite pages......

This one I think is my favourite. I sewed on 2 buttons for the closure of the page:

I really like how Janelle used vellum or something like that for some of her pages.... I cut out some templastic and it worked well! (totally LOVE those Journal punch-outs I purchased a little while ago - though you cant really see it for the sunlight.... I will try to take a better pic when I finish the page!)

2 Journal tags, one for small pics and one for journalling:

Here is my Christmas Day page:

Here is the side view:

I am really looking forward to this, and I shall show you pages as I finish them. I have most pages embellished already....... though some will wait until I have pics ready to go in as I can embellish on the actual pic! Oh and, I still have to do the cover and back page..... not sure as yet what I would like to do for it - card stock or chipboard! My SIL Roseanne came round Saturday and wanted to join in too..... so, I helped her out with a few pages and then she was off and racing! Her book looks amazing!
Anyone else going to do this?
I hope everyone is enjoying your weekend..... tomorrow, I shall post the Turnover tutorial! It turned out great and I am very pleased with it. So come back and check that out!

Love the scrapping Sarah, but NO I am not going to start any scrapping as I have so many unfinished quilts and so many stitcheries I want to do...I may never live long enough as it is..I do have to leave some time for breathing and well...eating..
Rainbow smiles :-} Gloria
