December!

Wow, I cannot believe that December is almost gone! I have done very little craft-wise this month, because of a two and a half week trip back home for Christmas. The only thing I did was scrap 4 pages with the new December kit by Gina Marie Huff. I scrapped the first in the airport waiting for our connection, then did 3 more pages one of the first days of my trip. 🙂 This collection was perfect to scrap some of my December pictures! Here’s the new goodies Gina put together:

For an alpha junkie like me, these alphas are heaven!!

And here are my pages:

I had hoped to have more free time during my trip (I was planning to take detailed pictures of my December Daily album… but I haven’t been able to do that, so that will have to wait until I catch up with other things now that I’m back home!). But of course I’m not complaining, it was good to see friends and family! I love this last picture of my parents & me. 🙂

Christmas Cards: Mission Accomplished!

Last week I finished the last Christmas cards I needed. They turned out quite pretty! 🙂 Since then, all my (little) free time has gone in putting together the December Daily album (which is now 99% complete), so look out to see some pages of that soon. 🙂 I’m actually not looking forward to taking pictures of all the pages I made – there are so many! So the plan is to take pictures after I’ve added photos and journaling, not of the blank pages.
Anyway, here’s my 3 last cards:

I actually added some liquid pearls to decorate the tree, but don’t have a picture of that. Sorry! 🙂
Then I made a print only card:

This is my favorite; it was my first time using Martha Stewart’s micro beads – so pretty!

50% Sale!

Today there is a 50% off sale in Molly DeCrow’s store!! And she has a new set of templates out today too!

If you’re a follower of this blog, you know I’m not much of a template person. Not at all. I like to just throw pictures on the page and let them go where they want to. 🙂 But I have to say I truly enjoyed using the new templates by Molly – they made it really easy and quick to scrap all these pictures from DH’s birthday!
They are also sold individually.

I combined them with this gorgeous kit (which of course is 50% off to today!):

Here are my pages:

So yeah, this week instead of working on my December Daily album I scrapped. 😉 But now I’m going to focus on the album – I have just a few days to get it done!!
