Maya Road envelope mini

When I saw the Maya Road envelopes at Anthologies, I couldn't pass them up. They were all so cute! I decided to use them to create a mini album. I used Making Memories Just Chillin' paper and die cuts to cover the envelopes and make the tags. It was a bit of work but I think it was worth it.

My December Daily 09

Just wanted to share a few pictures of my December Daily. After looking at the Flickr group of the December Daily's, I realized that mine is very different from others. I created mine out of lunch bags and I embellished my pages much more than the others. I plan on doing most of my journaling on tags that will slip into the bags.

I used a few different paper lines including Cosmo Cricket Jolly by Golly, Making Memories Mistletoe, Basic Grey Eskimo Kisses and DCWV Christmas paper stack from a couple of years ago.

Earth Love mini

I've had my Earth Love paper for a while but was busy with other things and finally got around to making a mini out of it. I LOVE this line from Cosmo Cricket.

How are the December Daily's coming? I have my pictures printed out but still need to work on the journaling. I know the point is to take time each day to take the photo, print the photo and do the journaling but I'm doing well just getting the pictures taken. =)

A few things I've been working on

My little one is walking now so she's keeping me quite busy. But I have managed to get a few things created. When I started working on my December Daily for this year, I realized that I wanted to create one for last year since that's when Ella was born. So this is what I came up with.

I joined a Christmas Tag swap at Life on the {Scrap}beach .
Below is my creation. I used my Cricut and the Christmas Cheer cartridge to make the tag itself, the tree and the gift. I used stickles to dress up the tree and the ribbon on the gift. Then I embossed the to and from. I'm excited to see what tags I get back!

I have a few other things to share but I'll save them for another post. I hope you all are enjoying this holiday season. I am looking forward to spending time with family and eating good food. =)
