My December Daily Album 2012 ...

I decided a month or so ago to do a December Daily again this year.

Last year I bought a kit from Studio Calico and while it was very good this year I decided against the kit they had for sale as it was a bit pricey.

So I just ordered some bits and pieces from their store to make up my own "kit".

I started with this album that I painted with white Gesso.

Handbook Today Album


Then I filled in the "today" with an embossing pen and embossed with red powder.
Zig Emboss Pen - Rounded Tip


Rouge Zing Opaque

 After that I decorated the cover with bits from the Studio Calico October and November kits that I had.

The spine is decorated with red and white twine and 3 bells.

So far for the inside I have cut some cardstock for pages and decorated them a little with red and green washi tapes and I have cute little number banners using my Silhouette Cameo to use for the days.

For the title page I have cut "hello December" a file by Loni Stevens in the Silhouette store.

And a couple of the pages so far ...

The font I used with my Silhouette Cameo is Honey Script, a free one I found online.
