12 Days of December Documented

This past week at SIMPLE STORIES, we shared
all sorts of projects with Daily Grind, SN@P! and Spellbinders!
I received the Wonky Rectangles, Layered Poinsettias and Classic Ovals by Spellbinders,
so I went with a tag-style mini album focusing on the "12 Days of Christmas"
 
For the base of the album, I started with Spellbinder's Wonky Rectangles Nestabilities  
and used the largest (3.25" X 4.25") die. I first cut the shape from a thin weight chipboard 
and then various papers from the 6X6 December Documented

Although using smaller dies from the same set would also look just as sweet, I decided to
 go with an oval shape (2.25" X 3") from the Spellbinder's Classic Ovals Nestabilities. 

And I just fell in love with Spellbinder's Layered Poinsettias ...I use a lot of snowflakes for winter/Christmas themes, so this was a nice change! For the front, I used two of the smaller
 poinsettia shapes and then glittered the yellow centers.
Before attaching the little penguin guy to the top of the cover, I applied him to a piece of paper
 and then trimmed out; this added stability and also took away the sticky. To the bottom, 
I glued on a pom pom trim from May Arts Ribbon.  

Above and below are all of the pages to commemorate the 12 Days of Christmas.
 When adding photos, I plan to use one of the smaller ovals to die-cut my photos.
 Between each 'day' I have added a cut-down piece of overlay from the 
December Documented Collection Kit, as well as SN@P! Pockets and 
December Documented 3x4 SNA@P! Cards

 

 










This concept would also make a cute brag book for a new mom or grandma. 
Add more SN@P! pockets and fill with movie tickets or gift cards...a gift within a gift! 
 Let me know if you have more ideas or how you would use a mini like this!
Thanks for dropping by :)

♥A little about me♥  I'm currently designing for Doodlebug Design and Scrapbook Adhesives and have had the honor of serving on 20+ manufacturers or retailer  design teams over the years!  When I'm not working as a school administrative assistant, you can almost  always find me crafting cuteness for my Etsy Shop: Dot & Whimsy :) Aside from paper-crafting, I also enjoy making jewelry, cross-stitch, embroidery,  home decorating, reading and watching reality TV. But enough about little 'ole me...let's get on to the give-a-way!
With Valentine's Day right around the corner, I set out to find the perfect curation  of all things "red" and "love" in my stash.  The end result is this sweet ♥LOV…

Oh, December Daily, how do I love thee! Isn't this just the greatest idea, ever?  (scrapbooking wise, anyway) Welcome to my contribution to the  SIMPLE STORIES  DECEMBER DAILY BLOG HOP I'm so glad that you're joining us...I can't wait to hop around myself and see how the girls have decorated their SN@P Albums December Daily style :)
**You should be arriving here from Rebecca Keppel's Blog**
I have quite a few photos to share, so I'll leave most of them in a  smaller size.  Just click on each one to enlarge.
My vision for the album was to mix 'n match  Handmade Holiday, SN@P and Year.O.Graphy I wanted bright colors mixed in with more shabby-distressed look that Simple Stories is known for.    For the cover, I took a bright Turquoise Dot SN@P paper and a strip from Year.O.Graphy and stitched them together.  The title is a compilation of  sevearl SN@P sticker elements.
