December Daily 2014 – Foundation Pages


It’s time! Woo!

I have prepared pages in advance of December as usual. The finished album will be just over 6 inches square this year.

I have made the ‘number’ elements for each day but left some of them loose. For the purpose of planning though and getting my head in gear I set a number to each page when I took the photo below. I now have a record so I can go back to it for reference but have the freedom to change pages around if I want to.


My colour scheme as ever is red, white and kraft with silver and some clear elements.

Here’s a closer look at some of the pages.


I love using cut down page protectors. I’ve sealed the raw edges with washi tape or sewed them closed.


Here is an example of where the number is not fixed to the page yet. I added a little negative punch out of the snowflakes to remind me that I love using little strips of the negative shapes in projects.


Here I filled up the page with embellishments and sewed boxes around each to hold the elements in place.


An example of a cut down page which allows you to see further ahead into the album.



One of my all time favourite go to pages, a red envelope.


White on white for this page with added glitter.


Another fav technique, fold out pages. Here I added that cut out strip of Amy Tangerine card. I might use it on this page and I might move it to another day but I have it there in the photo to remember.


Can’t get enough of these.


More embellishments sewed into the pockets.


Added a little banner of circles to this one.


Another narrow page. And more sewing! Love me that red thread…


Using an old embellishment here, a fragment from Tim Holtz. I added some paper behind the plastic and glued it on.


And finally a transparent page. I found this lurking in my stash from many years ago when I tried printing on transparencies. More sewing to fix that metal edged tag to the page.


I have a little stash of goodies in a box to use during the month so we are almost ready. Just need to make the covers now. I’ll be back to share that in a few days.
