December Daily Day 1

I got a lovely box of goodies yesterday from twopeas with all of the stuff I had ordered for December Daily!  I’m structuring it a little differently than I have in the past since I wanted to play with divided page protectors.  I decided to go with the Daily Flash system from October Afternoon and, for the most part, I’m happy with it.  I was a bit dissapointed that the 4×6 pockets are not a true 4×6- more like 4 1/4 by 6 1/4.  I was hoping to be able to just drop photos in the pockets, but it seems that I’ll have to mat them all.  Also, any premade 4×6 cards will not work.  I’m using mostly Crate Paper’s Bundled Up for paper and embellishments and OMG.  I have not been so in love with a Christmas line in years.  I have a feeling I’ll be ordering a lot more of this for my regular 12×12 December layouts.  :)

I love the pockets!  I’ve been kind of in a funk lately with my scrapping and this was enough of a format change to make me love it again.  I kind of viewed each pocket as its own little canvas and, while I did try to make sure the page worked as a whole, I wasn’t overly fussed by it.

I considered adding some sort of embellishment to this picture, but decided to leave it alone.This is Raptor at our new Children’s Museum.  (Which is the bomb by the way.)

This card is from a cutapart sheet by Jillibean Soup.  I inked the edges and added some twine to a Thicker number 1.

IMG_4460I did trim the photo down a bit side to side, but not top to bottom.  You can see how much of the mat shows.  Like I said, a bit annoying, but not horrible.  I added some twine and a few enamel dots.

I’m hoping to play with it some more today!

    Great idea to consider each block as an individual piece. Fun start to your album!
