50 days to Go

Well, that's till Christmas, but only 25 (I'm not counting today) till the 1st of December, and yes that means Daily December album can begin.

I'm putting my own together this year, out of the mountain of Christmas goodness that I already have. Saying that, I did do a little shop at Papermaze for a couple of Christmas papers that I fell I love with.

Initially, I thought I'd go down the "gold" route that is so popular at the moment, and then the kitsch and vintage lover in me came bubbling through and I just couldn't resist adding colour and bling.

So here it is; first up my papers etc.
 Next, here are a few of the loose embellishments.
I'm still debating on which album I'll use. I have a gold 4x4 we are memory keepers, instagram album that I'm thinking about. but then I worry it will be too small.  Still I have a little bit of time before I have to commit to anything.

So there you have it ... my Christmas album. I'm sure as I go along I'll add other bits from my stash, and I still have yet to cut out frames etc., using my silhouette, but I thought I might just show you how I'm getting on.

I do have a Daily December board if anyone is interested


Also, can I say a huge, huge thank you all, for the lovely kind comments that you left on my week in the life posts. x

  3. Look forward to seeing your album grow through December - I am going totally off piste for me and going to try my hand at art journalling my version of JYC - eeek!! It is scary as I am not a messy crafter and I have no idea what real form it will take - just that it will have to fit the covers already made - I will blog my journey!!

  10. That looks like a great start....I need to get mine together.
    I must admit....the only time I did a very small December album I regretted it and I've never gone smaller than 7 x 7 since!

  12. This is looking great Sandra, I'm in two minds or it three... over a 4x4 gold WRMK album, a 6x12 WRMK album (also gold) or simply adding it too my existing PL 12x12 album (not gold - but I do have a gold one waiting in the wings). The gold bug has well and truly got me!
