December Daily - the First Half

I think I forgot how messy scrapbooking can be. I'm really a clean work surface kind of girl, and that went totally out the window. It was a total mess, and I realized that I worked on this entire album standing up! Totally weird.

So here is the base for the first half of the album:


1 & 2
 
3 & 4
 
I'm going to have to redo 6. I tried using some spray ink to show just one number on the bingo card. Well. I really don't like it at all. So I'll have to rework that page. 
5 (with a little glossy accents)



Seven is a baseball card holder cut to fit. 
6, 7 & 8


9 & 10

11 & 12
 
I think page 12 is my favorite. I sewing on a little pocket from one of my sheets of baseball card holders. I had no idea if my sewing machine could sew onto acrylic - but it can!

Are you doing a December Daily? What holiday crafts are you planning? I had a ton of things I made last year. I can't wait to get started!

This book is totally amazing!! I have the same MF album and I just can't decide what to do with it; you've now given me so inspiration to get crackin' on it. Thanks!

That is so cute! I'm going to be making an advent calendar and a 25 days of Christmas mini album.

Love it! BTW I always craft standing up unless I'm fussy cutting or something.

YAY!!!!! I've been waiting to see how you make your December Daily! I haven't decided whether I'm going to do one this year or not. I'm taking that Jessica Sprague class, so I'm hoping that inspires me to get moving this year...I'm on Day 3. Last year, I made the gift tags and some of the wrapping paper. I'm making some more tags this year in the hopes of making enough to gift to some of my son's teachers. I have a few more things on the burner, but we'll see how many of them I get to! :>
