December Daily

I finally finished my December Daily album!!  Well, ok, almost finished.  But I'm really really close and I decided I should just go ahead and bind it together and post pics, so it's not summer when I actually get it fully completed.  I just have 3 days to finish, so shouldn't take too long...just need to get some pics printed. So, the rest of this post will be very picture heavy with shots of all my pages.

For my DD, I ordered the amazing October Afternoon Very Merry mini album for my 2012 album.  Now if I were to be completely honest I would say that I also ordered the entire collection of Simple Stories Handmade Holiday for my DD album, but decided not to use it for this one.  I'll save it for this year's!  :)

I changed up the OA mini album a bit since  I wanted to make my album 8x8 -  so I could scrap more pictures and bind it with my Cinch (that has been collecting a very nice layer of dust).  The bases of my pages are AC white cardstock covered with OA paper.  I used a few pieces of other OA lines and added a few extra embellies of my own and lots of washi tape (I just can't get enough of it...real or digi). Here it is:

A few important things to note when using the Cinch:  Make sure the guide is fully pushed in or pulled out before punching and make sure your paper is in the right way.  I learned these things the hard way...oops!  Oh well, nothing a little washi can't fix!  The Cinch really does live up to it's name though.  It is FABulous!  Seriously.  I can see many more books in my future.

As always, thanks for popping in to check out my little crafty blog.
