December daily mini - Por Else

Hello everyone! Last year I joined in on the December Daily 'hype'; documenting every day in december. It is a project invented by Ali Edwards, to keep track of december. It's a month that goes by so quickly.
I really liked to do it, but documenting every day is not possible because of work and you know.. life! This year I wanted to do something like December Daily, but simpler.

I decided to make a mini album with tags. When december comes, I only have to print my pictures, embellish it and ready! Here is how I made it:


I selected the papers and embellishments I wanted to use for this project. I used Crate Paper 'Snow and Cocoa' and their new Christmas collection 'Fa la la', plus some specialty papers, like vellum and white glitter paper, and Project Life pocket pages.


I cut all the papers and patterns to size. I used some self made stamps on some of the papers to get a cohesive look through the album.



The real fun begins by decorating some of the pages with embellishments, die-cuts and stickers. I used the die-cuts from the Crate paper Christmas collections, sticky notes banner shapes from the Carousel collection and epoxy heart stickers by Funny Sticker World. A fair warning; try not to decorate too much, because you still need space for your pictures later!


These faux suede tassels I bought a long time ago, were a perfect match for decorating this mini. They were just a little too big, so I used a sharp pair of scissors to cut the tassel straight. Jewelryhooks are perfect to attach the tassels to the binder ring.
I love to use binder rings for these mini albums, because you can add tags and mix up the pages at any time you want.



Punching shapes out of paper is a perfect way to embellish the pages. For instance; I punched out a lot of glitter hearts, and attached these through the entire mini. This way it seems like everything belongs together.
Last, but not least I stitched some of the tags with red thread, for a real Christmas feel!


I hope you enjoyed this tutorial. I post a flip through on my Instagram @sgrselse, if you want to see the entire album!
Let us know if you are joining in on December Daily, and how are you documenting this special time of year? XOXO Else
