Happy Hip Hop and more importantly-
HAPPY VETERANS DAY!
Today the Unity gang are all starting on their December Daily's!
And when I said started, that's right where I am- STARTING point! ;)I haven't yet done one of these types of journals, but did sign up for Shimelle's class last year and am looking forward to doing better this year!
Here is my cover and inside front page- I cut the cover out of the clear acrylic wrapper my Grand dies™ came in! I decided to use My Minds Eye's Holly Jolly line, and thought this Santa was the perfect 1st page!
The labels five shape is from this months KOM Picture Perfect, and the "December" sentiment is from the Here's the ticket scrap booking set.
Here is the cover separate from the inside front page- I cut out two of the labels 5 shapes, and placed them in the same place so you wouldn't ever see the backside of either.
Here's a few quick photos on how I made the pages- I used my Grand Calibur™ to create the pages!
Left side- base plate of the new Grand Calibur with die cutting edge up. (This is the Grand Scalloped Square) Right side- cutting plate, layer on top, run through!
*This machine can cut up to a full sheet of card stock making it ideal for making mini books like this!
When you got to emboss, leave the paper and die in tact, and cover with the embossing pad, then embossing plate.
Here's another page I am running through- (I still need to add days/journaling tags to these pages) You can leave excess hanging out if using 12 x 12 paper.
And the page is cut out- ready to be decorated! I think I am going to use my BIA when I have all the pages cut out and ready to assemble together, just debating a side or top opening....
I'll share more when I have a few more pages done! At the rate I am going, it will be January! ;)
starting is half the battle I think!
