December Daily -- Clear Pocket Pages 1-3

Man, I take forever to do everything.

I am ashamed. And kicking myself for not starting on this sooner. What was I thinking anyway???? (not really ashamed, please don't throw me a pity party, but you would think I'd know better!)

Well, here we are with one more day to go before December starts and I have 1 cover and 3 interior divider pages done. My hope is that tomorrow I'll complete 3 more pocket pages and at least get started on the remaining transparency dividers.

I did get all the paper cut for the pages so that is golden. I still haven't decided if I'll just buy Ali E's digital overlays and print those up on white cardstock or create my own. I'm leaning toward purchasing since I'd have to make the others and it would take me a while....and her's look so great!

Here are the three pages I completed today. Really had fun doing these. This could easily be addicting!



Pin It






And this little detail my be one of my very favorites!  So happy I did these!  Photo doesn't really do them justice. But I love the texture and shape on the beads.



Process details:  I used the Pink Paislee page protectors for these.  Had to cut off the tops but it gave me a nifty smaller pocket so that was kinda cool.  Unfortunately, they don't make these anymore.

You'll notice that there are some pockets that use stickers but you can't tell what they are stuck too.  I cut out some packaging that was clear, cut it to the size of my pockets (2x3) and then stuck the stickers and stamped right on top of that acetate using Stazon ink.  Also did that with some 7 gypsies tapes.

On the page for day 5, I stamped the sentiment, punched it with a CM square punch and then used old style photo corners to give the framed look.  I then punched another square and stuck it to the back so it wouldn't look hokey when you turn the page.

Thanks for all your sweet words yesterday and always. You always encourage me, I just want you to know! It means so much to have friends on my paper journey. I do hope you're all feeling encouraged today and inspired to create something that is wholly you!

Be blessed!
