My December Daily cover.

 
As promised, I'm sharing the cover of my December Daily album with you today.  I call it a December Daily even though I'm almost positive I won't be documenting every day of December.  I plan to journal a little something every day on a notepad, which will then be transferred over to my December album, along with photos and embellishments.  I want to document the moments, the feelings, and the magic, and will include the dates, but may not document daily.  And I'm okay with that.


This year, I made it a point to truly realize that my hubby and our bunnies are my new immediate family.  This was a hard transition after getting married, for both me and my extended family, to realize.  But I feel like this year I have been working hard towards remembering this.  Therefore, I decided to title my album "Guzlas Holiday 2013."  I want this to be an album featuring me and my hubby and OUR HOLIDAY.  I want this to be an album we can put out every year around the holidays for people to look at.  This will be our holiday album!


For my album, I painted the cover red, then painted it white again.  I originally thought about leaving it red, but it was way too vibrant for the cover.  So I painted it white, but didn't add too many coats, so the red would show through a tiny bit.  I then spray misted a doily over the cover to reveal the spray misted pattern.  I cut the doily in half and adhered to the cover.  I added a strip of the gold washi, a border strip, and the "holiday" sticker.  I then added "2013" on top of the sticker.  I used a Mister Huey zig zag mask to paint some gray paint on the bottom and top and added some paint and mist splatters.  Finally, I added the red glitter Thickers and adhered four of these absolutely stunning stars.  They are bark stars by Prima and I am so in love with them I might just buy 5 packages.  I must use them on everything!!!

Are you doing a December album?  I would love to see your progress.  Share the link in my comments so I can check it out!
