I couldn't resist - after picking up the album from the post office this morning I have begun to assemble my Daily December album!
I'm waiting on an order of chipboard pages and transparencies so there isn't a whole lot more I can do until they arrive. Although I am planning on putting numbers on the pages (a leap of faith for me!) I don't even want to do that until I can arrange and rearrange all the pages in the album.
Inspired by the Crate Paper Snow Days line, I am planning on using a lot of bright colours. After all, Christmas is in summer here. I was wondering how those colours would work with the more traditional reds but to my eye they are working well. (If you disagree, its TOTALLY my quick and dodgy editing of the photos!)
I am loving the look of pink and red paired together, so much so that I think that will be the colour scheme on my Christmas tree this year. Pink and red mixed with silver and white. White/cream will also definitely make a big appearance in my album, although it may not look like it from the photos above. I love Molly Irwin's use of white backgrounds with little splashes of colour in her 2009 December Daily and will incorporate that idea too.
This is the first time I am attempting a December Daily album and I am incredibly curious to see how these ideas actually translate into a finished album. Wish me luck!
