Let's create: December Days 17-25

 Hello Sassy friends
Fridays seem to roll back around so quickly... I'm looking very forward 
to the start of the school holidays!

Thank you for stopping by to see how my December Days album has turned out. 
Hopefully the way the majority has already been planned, should help making documenting over this crazy month very easy indeed.

Welcome to the last post, part 3: Day 17 to 25
Day 17
Glitter cardstock, vellum, wood numbers, Merry & Bright stickers, ephemera

Get more out of some ephemera pieces by snipping them in half
Day 18
White cardstock, doily, wood numbers, ephemera, kraft envelope, patterned paper
I've given the moustache from the ephemera pack a coating 
of white glitter and then assembled it over the Santa die cut
It's hard to tell from the photo but this has been arranged on top 
of the black spotted acrylic page divider. The circle was left over 
from an earlier page and I've just tucked Santa inside
Day 19
White cardstock, doily, wood numbers, ephemera, kraft envelope, patterned paper
A square run through my Cuttlebug with a Couture Creations embossing folder.
Try stamping with Versamark on kraft. I love the effect. Heat emboss selections.


Day 20
White cardstock, wood numbers, ephemera, patterned paper, glitter alphas
Hide some journalling and a pic or two under a flap 
and embellish with some faux baubles. 
Simply trim and fold a piece of card, trim the end if you like 
and tuck your photo/journalling inside.

Pop a small hole in the top of the bauble die cut from 
the ephemera pack and machine stitch to your page

Day 21
Patterned paper, glitter stickers, wood numbers, ephemera
Create a cute shaker pocket with some of the spotty vellum.
 1. Trim a piece, 100mm across by 170mm high.
Fold up at about 100mm down the length.

2. Optional: Punch some shapes out of the vellum

3.  If you want to punch shapes in you pocket, insert a bit of acetate inside so you can see the confetti more clearly and prevent the bits from falling out.

4. Stitch three sides closed with a sewing machine.

5. Insert confetti and sew shut.
Tip: Place a bit of adhesive on one or two of the shapes 
inside the shaker so they don't all fall to the bottom.
For the date, I have made a feature out of the number printed on this bit
of Simple Stories paper that I trimmed to fit inside the album inserts.
To make your own frame, simply trace the shape onto some tracing/baking paper
Then place the traced shape onto a paper of your choice, and cut out.
Mount with foam tape.

Day 22
Custom die-cut, doily, wood numbers, ephemera, patterned paper, journalling tag
Create this sweet tree using scraps and then machine stitch down.

Day 23
Patterned paper, wood numbers, Sn@p card, journalling tag
Day 24
Glitter cardstock, wood numbers, ephemera, Merry & Bright stickers, patterned paper, journalling tag
 Heidi Swapp has done a gorgeous free printable with a December theme.
 This cutie has been punched and set in an Epiphany Crafts round tool.

Day 25
Custom cut file, wood numbers, ephemera, Merry & Bright stickers, patterned paper, journalling tag
 For my final day I wanted to echo the notion of gift giving and have hence, 'wrapped' my last page!
 It's a bit tricky to explain exactly how I did this, hehe.
It was very easy actually: just fold in the canvas page and then measure
how much ribbon you will need roughly, by wrapping the area.
 Make it neat by threading the ribbon through the actual canvas itself.
1. Measure how wide your ribbon is.

2. Cut two slits in the canvas as shown below

 3. Now thread your ribbon through the slits

This is what it looks like when opened...
Thank you again for your interest in my December Days album.
If you are going to be making one, be sure to tag us, 
we would so love to see your creations!

Till next time!
