December Daily 2013 Prep

I mentioned a few posts ago that I'm going to tackle December Daily this year as a hybrid project.  I've been having fun gathering supplies.  I've been mixing and matching all brands, but am choosing the pallet to be mostly chalkboard blacks, red, gold, stars, shine, glitz...

I chose not to buy the Studio Calico kit because I thought the price was excessive -- and I didn't love every piece of the kit.  I did include many Studio Calico items though, as I browsed around.  Here is what I have assembled to make my personal kit.

Chalkboard prints:
 Red stripes and various others:
 Gold glitter paper:
 Letter stickers:

I've chosen the Simple Stories Snap Binder to be my album.  I painted it with Martha Stewart Yellow Gold Acrylic Paint.  I got the wooden snowflake from Joann's and brushed it with Stickles gold glitter.  The banner sticker is Studio Calico and the foil numbers are American Crafts.

The first page is just a page protector filled with Studio Calico confetti and stitched shut with my sewing machine.  I also cut a word art with my silhouette that I manipulated from Ali Edwards brush files. I pieced together several different files to make it look like I wanted.

I've also had fun looking back through my past digital projects.  Gosh how I miss those precious baby faces!  You can see them here:
