Ali very sensibly advocates plenty of forward planning, in order to complete the album in December with the minimum amount of fuss. Here's how mine is looking:
An 8.5x11 cord-covered album by American Crafts, purchased here. I've added a Santa tree decoration as an embellishment, purchased here.
The opening title page is 8.5x11. I used cream Bazzill Bling cardstock, Basic Grey's Eskimo Kisses patterned paper (the 6x6 size, as I preferred a smaller actual pattern) and Ali's December Daily logo (which she kindly offered up for free via her blog). The font is Impact and last line reads: A record of the minutiae of life for the XXX family in the run up to Christmas.
You can join in the fun and link your December Daily project directly to Ali's blog here. I hope some of you will join in with me during December. Scrapping projects are always much more fun when shared with friends.
