Simple Stories - December Daily Blog Hop!

Welcome to the Simple Stories December Daily Blog Hop! If you came from Donna's blog, you're on the right track! If not, make sure you start at the beginning on the Simple Stories blog so you don't miss a single bit of project inspiration along the way! 

When we were asked to do a December Daily album... I quickly volunteered myself because sure, that sounded like fun! I had no clue what December Daily was nor had I ever done any Project Life type of scrapping. I do however, LOVE the new Sn@p albums from Simple Stories! So this is what I came up with for my cover. 

I also am in love with the Handmade Holiday collection. It's so beautiful! 

I will admit.. the inside of my album is blank. In my defense, I am one of those types of scrappers who has to have photos in order to build the page or album in this case. I figured I would start this album on December 1 and add journaling and photos as the month goes along. At the end of 2012, I will have an album full of photos and journaling from December to pull out next year and look back on. 

These albums are soooo great for this type of project! Along with the 3x4 Sn@p cards and Countdown Cardstock stickers, this album will come together pretty easily. 


Now hop right along and see what Gail has in store for you today!

I like hearing/reading about/seeing the different approaches to using the same products. I have a small -- okay...a pretty large -- perfectionist streak which gets in my creative way. I'm trying to learn that there isn't one correct way and seeing your beautiful cover is another reminder.

Auror Willow said...

I love the cover on your Daily! I can't wait to start mine! I will definitely be using a Snap binder! Thanks for the hop and the chance to win some goodies!
