December Daily 2016

Hi there!

It's been a crazy few weeks, but I managed to squeeze in some scrapping here and there and I finished my December Daily for 2016.  I'm pretty happy with it. 

I uploaded most of the album to Flipagram and created a little video of it.  I can tell this is going to be an addicting new program!


Here are a few my favourite layouts in the album.

I really enjoyed using the Simple Stories Classic Christmas collection.  It made putting my pages together quite easy.

That makes 4 December Daily albums.  Yeah me!!

Thanks for looking!

Let it Snow

Hi there!

Happy New Year!  I hope you had a lovely holiday.  Ours at the Hoobanoff household was busy and kind of last minute.  For some reason, I just could not get organized for Christmas. So, I was quite behind in my December Daily album.  Crafting always seems to come last on the "to do" list. And then one day, just before Christmas, I watched a video from Shari Carrol from Simon Says Stamp, and that pushed me even further behind! 

The minute I saw this project, I knew I had to try to recreate it. I have amassed quite the collection of buttons, so it's a great way to use them up. I didn't have the same type of mixed media but I made due with metallic Gelatos and the colours of mist in my stash.

Shari used a circle stencil, but I chose to use a snowflake stencil that I received with my December Creative Scrapbooker Magazine. And I used cheese cloth on the bottom instead of the threads.  Because the clip is so large at the top, I thought a larger title would  balance the clip at the top and keep the tree as the focus. I cut the title with my Silhouette and sprayed it with Perfect Pearls to give it shimmer. There is a lot of shimmer all over the project, but it doesn't show very well in the photos.

Here is Shari's project.

I loved working on the project.  It was quite time consuming having to let all the mists and gesso dry.  But, I love it and was happy to make the changes I did for my own spin on it.  Thanks Shari, for the inspiration!

I have now turned my attention back to December Daily. I will hopefully have a post next week with my favourite pages and that I will be able to report that the album is complete.  Fingers crossed!

Thanks for looking!
