I'm soooo excited to start my December Daily and its my 4th one!
Each year I learn more about what I love/like, dont like and what I'd like to try (whether it works or not - there's always Plan 'B' - and I've often reverted to that! :P :P :roll: )

Here it is (I've just randomly grabbed ribbon and tied on the rings... its there to show a 'kinda' finished look.... I'll wait until the album is complete before choosing the ribbons properly)

Image

I had in my mind very early in the year to use these Prima Resist Covers, so bought them and put them aside till now. Ooooor you might like this one or maybe this one.
The covers are 7 1/2 x 9 1/2ins so pretty much the insides would be about 7x9ins. At first I thought this might be too big! But thinking about my previous albums - there are really important days where I've had to do a few pages to cover one day - so maybe this time, I'll do say a 'tag' page for a small event day - and a large page that fits to the covers for the big event days for instance. See - we keep learning :P
There's so much scope with these covers. I did a Canvas Album year before last - and swore I'd never do another (just a tad bit of extra work) - but its the one I LOVE the most out of all of them... so here I am again - having another shot at a slightly different one! (Let's see if I'm sorry or not by its end :lol: :roll: )
Image


I've just got a couple of steps below how the cover developed

Step One
As its a 'resist' cover, that means you can spray your colour onto the surface and the image or scripts underneath will remain visable. I cut out a couple of stars - one big and one smaller and placed on the cover to act as a mask and sprayed. As for mists... I LOVE the search box in the shop as it brings up more than any other way just type in 'MIST' and try 'SPRAY' too. Anyway here's a fabulous yellow like the one I used Tattered Angels Jingle Bells over the top.
Image



Step Two
Before the stars came off - I sprayed with a orange red to deepen the colour.
(Dont forget to spray inside the covers too so it looks finished when opening the book)
Image



The paper (mask) stars were not thrown away - I used Dimensional Magic on them as well as the little glittery centres that go on the stars. If you love products like MME Lost and Found Christmas that has lots of glitter (it does tend to rub off and get everywhere) then Dimensional Magic will seal it and yet it still looks fabby and glittery!
Image

Other products used:
MME Lost and Found Chipboard Elements (sold out)
Thickers Nutmeg Glossy Chestnut
Teresa Collins Christmas Cottage Trims String (this set of trim has red seam binding on it!)



Day 1
(which is a double page as it was a biggy day, did blur out some names etc :wink: ) One side has flaps and the other side has one photo becoming a pocket and lots of little photos and a ticket etc poked into it. Paige was a 'Blossom' and 'Mr Lizard'
Image


Here's extra detail on the first page (which is the other side of the cover - didnt want to waste space :P ) Hannah was Wardrobe Mistress and did a fabulous job

That's just lovely Mandy. Starting mine this weekend, need to decide on a size. Just off to glue inserts in my Christmas cards and I can start.

Cheryl, if you do one, you will be hooked for sure. I could never see much sense to it all before I did my first one last year. It was all totally made from bits of stash and only small (around 6x4) and I was so surprised at what I filled my pages with.

Oh Mandy! I loooooove seeing your DD's.
I have ideas for mine this year and started it the other day, but finding the colours I wanted have proven to be hard.
So I've just done some shopping with about 4 different brands of papers and I'll decide when I get them.
I can't wait to get them so I can play. I have been so out of scrapping this year.
I've gone with a more simple theme this year {well thats what I'm thinking now but will surely change! haha}
Thank you for sharing your DD. You always inspire me!

Hee hee hee Bec, you are incorrigible!
And thanks for your sweet words :biggrin: I know what you mean about picking different products for your DD! Last year I stuck to two brands... and loved them... but this year, its going to be a bit of a 'bitsa' of all things I love. Probably wont stick to any colour scheme either... it will depend on the photos/pages at the time :P I wish Dec 1st will quickly come around too Deb!!! I want to start into mine already!

Cheryl.. deb's right!! You gotta try it!
Its fun and you will love your end result! Deb was a 'not my thing' person too.... and oooh... she fell hard!!! hee hee

Last year a whole week of my life went missing at Christmas time - the week Declan was born - there are things that happened that I just simply do not remember - friends visiting at the farm, shopping for Mum's Christmas present, all sorts of strange things - this December we have a LOT planned so I am determined to have one of these ready to go for the 1st of December - and I am seriously thinking I need to have one ready to take to USA with us in January for CHA etc as well.
