Hip Hop!!! December Daily

Happy Hip Hop!!
I am so excited to show you all the start of my
December Daily 2010.
I have been participating with the Ali Edwards December Daily every December for the last 2 years and love this project from conception to finish..
It is the one project that gets me excited to created a Holiday album every year. I have come to love the basic facts of starting really early and working on the basic pages . To see the project of in the beginning of a plain state to something extraordinary that you will cherish for years to come.. filled with memories and documentation of any normal day in the month of December.
(This is a project that is overwhelming if you are not prepared in the beginning.. so there is lots of time to get started if you want to.. It is not a project that you have to fill the pages of anything exciting.. it is just to document your everyday life leading up to Christmas . It can be a basic photo of your morning coffee or tea, your pet, your favourite warm pj's.. anything goes. You don't have to have kids.. it is just a special album of everyday life. )
If you want to see my previous albums check out the labels on the side bar. I have posted my December Daily from 2008 and 2009 there.
I am really excited about the look of this album.. It is totally different than what I have done. The papers are more elegant with rich and neutral colours. The fun part of it is that most of the Teresa Collins papers and transparencies used I had the stamps to match.. funny how that all worked out. I have used Ippity, Unity and some Melissa Frances Stamps.. But mostly Ippity!!
Now here is my December Daily Album

Here are some of the Details.
The album uses different textures.. paper, felt, and of course canvas. Yes, I am addicted to canvas cloth!!hehe
I made this album using chipboards sheet cut 6.5 x 11.. the inside pages will be 6x10.5. Covered with some of the papers from Teresa Collins Noel line. The papers for the tags and inside number features are actually paper I made myself..I wanted a little canvas for the inside as well. I will post a Tutorial of this on Sunday.. easy peasy!! The Canvas on the front is actually a pocket that holds two canvas papered tags with some Ippity Stamped images and sentiments. I kept it all neutral so I inked the design images in the Unity Haystack Ink and the sentiments using Tim Holtz Vintage Photo distress ink.


( stamps used, Ippity Kissmas & Mistletoe, Season of Joy, and Love in Return papersand tag teresa collins, felt yellow bicycle, ribbon recycled from a box of chocolate, canvas cloth homedepot)
This is my album all together.. It will grow in size about double once I decorate the pages with photo's and embellishments. the back cover is all Canvas.. just plain and simple.

I hope you all come back and visit me next Friday..
I will be featuring the inside of my album .
It will just be the basic pages.. and then in December starting the 2nd ..
I will have the beginning of the first pages done.. I am so excited.
This is also the theme of today's Hip Hop.. to do something December Daily related.. if can be anything.. from a small journal, to a recipe journal.. to something bigger like a December Daily. I personally can't wait to go check out what the DT have made.. I am sure you will be excited to Hip Hop.. so grab that coffee or tea and check out the great Hop.. starting at the Unity Blog.
Now time to go check out the wonderful Eva.. I can't wait!!


Remember November 14th starts the Ippity Fall Release and Thursday November 18th is RELEASE PARTY!!!! oh the fun we will have in November!!
Have fun!
Hugs,
Angie
