December Daily | Handmade Holidays Day 1

Cheers to a new holiday season! I am so excited to be starting my December Daily album again.  I love all the inspiration from Ali Edwards and have been watching her old album videos and going through my old albums as well. 

I chose this grey album with gold scripted Merry Merry Merry,  along with the main Ali Edwards kit.  I also got the Pam Garrison mini kit. 

I made a pretty simple title page this year, but I did include this awesome chipboard piece I've been hoarding for years.  The five stockings were just too perfect for our family. 

I had to spruce up the inner cover a little too. 

The back is just a very quick and very short intentions page.  I've thinking about the joy and magic of this season a lot lately.  Going back to family time.  A break from school and the car and running around. I stacked the acetate shapes from the kit and journaled around them. 

We got our tree after Thanksgiving, so I already have a lot of moments I want to include in the album.  I added this star transparency in between these pages. 

I stitched some wooden stars with red string. Love that extra texture. 

The first spread I added was from an event back in November, but it was too special.  I have a lot of before December moments in here actually. 

Avinash had the role of Esteban the Magnificent from the Day the Crayons Quit.  I used a green crayon to make this little doodle and photographed it.  Then I typed my journaling on the image and printed it out. I added a little star and a stamp from the AE cheer kit. 

It is one of my most favorite hybrid pages I've ever created. 

I backed the journaling with rainbow hearts patterned paper from SC.  I added a big red chipboard A and a word strip about applause.  I took so many pictures of the play with my big camera, but somehow my phone picture turned out the best. 

Thanks for looking at my pages!
