November was one crazy, caffeine blur. I won NaNoWriMo (a challenge to write a 50k novel in November) for the first time, clocking in at 50,240 words with only an hour to spare. It was fun, exhilarating, and exhausting! I am SO ready to do something other than creative writing.
Hello December Daily.
This is my first year participating in Ali Edwards' December Daily, and can I say I am SO excited!! Because I spent every free moment writing in November, I didn't create any foundation pages. Starting my DD album Monday, I realized why so many people create pages BEFORE December (because it saves time), and wish I would have too. Oh well, next year.
Today, I made my intro and my reason why pages. It felt GREAT playing with paper again! For my intro page, I cut this star transparency to 8.25" by 5", then hole punched the sides with a hole punch. I layered a red tag, dollie and some labels in the bottom right corner and glued the December Daily rubber banner that came with the kit on top. I stapled a tab from the kit with my tiny attacher.
I heat embossed the deer wood veneer with gold embossing powder. The "twenty 14" was stamped from the DD kit stamp set, with versamark and then heat embossed as well.
I think it came out very cute! Here's what it looks like in my album.
On the back of the star transparency is my reason why, which I wrote on a project life card. I stamped "embrace and celebrate," from Ali Edwards' Story Stamp, Get Real.
I finished off the page with a couple of embellishments, a clipboard banner and star paper clip.
Who else is participating in December Daily? What's your battle plan for tackling this project?
I don't have a photo printer at home, so I'll be making my daily pages on the weekend after I spend my photos to my local photo printer. What I am doing daily, is taking photos, editing photos, and journaling my daily story. Hopefully, this will help me when the time comes to create my pages. We will see!
