Hi Everyone...it's Kathy today with my first-ever December Daily mini album! I've always been a bit intimidated by the thought of taking on a December Daily, but the new Santa Express Collection made it so easy! I started out with a Doodlebug Plain & Simple Chipboard Album. I love how the pages are all different! I covered the pages with some of the fun papers from Santa Express. I also created a few extra pages using Doodlebug Textured Cardstock so that I had enough pages in the book. I then went to work decorating! I kept my cover fairly simple using the Merry Tree Doodlepop as my center. I used some Limeade Teensy Type letters for my title.
I then went to work on the next 25 pages using all the goodies in the Santa Express Collection... take a peek!
Don't you LOVE the Holly Berries Sprinkles Shapes??!!!!
Doodlebug's Doilies were a fun addition to the album as well...the colors are perfect!
I created a tie envelope using Lily White Sprinkles Vellum. I plan on putting some cookie recipe cards inside! (I make cookies every year for the neighbors!) Of course I embellished it with some cute Gingerbread people!
The Limeade Chevron Treat bag worked perfectly with Santa Express too! I used one to create a pocket for a journaling tag.
I also created an ornament shaker and filled it with some coordinating Doodlebug Sequins!
I will say that my album came together MUCH quicker than I expected, and I'm really happy with the results! And now for a freebie for you! I created a cut file for all of the number flags in my book, and would love to share it. Click here to download your copy! That's it for me today. Be sure to keep checking back to get more Santa Express inspiration from the design team! Thanks for stopping by!
