December Daily - Part 4!

Welcome to the last part of my Graphic 45 inspired December Daily project! Thanks for joining me!

Last Thursday we created pages for days 11 through 21 for our December Daily Journal. Let's keep going today and create the last 10 pages for December 22nd through December 31st!


Thank you for taking this journey with me for the last four weeks! I hope you had as much fun making your December Daily as I did making mine!

If you missed any of the posts for the other segments of the album, I have links on the right sidebar! I'll keep the links up through January 7th. For a complete supply list, see Part 1.

I hate to see the project end, but let's get started so you can complete your project before the 25th!

Page 22

1. Cut chipboard to 5x8 inches.

2. Cover the front of the chipboard with Fashionista Buttons a la Mode papers (5x8 inches). Sand all edges and distress with white pigment ink or white paint.



3. Use notepaper as a journaling block. Distress edges with brown ink and attach to the right side of the page.

4. Adhere sticker number "22" (K & Company) to the top right of the journaling block. (As always, use items you have in your stash! I know you all have stickers, rub-ons, papers, and more hiding away in your stash! My directions are just guidelines to get you started!)

5. Attach a Graphic 45 Christmas Emporium chipboard tag to the left side of the page. Glue green rhinestones to the ends of the tag. (Teresa Collins)

3. Place adhesive on three sides of the notepaper to create a pocket. If you feel your pocket needs more stability, first glue the paper to some thick chipboard.

4. Attach the pocket to the left side of the page and tuck tickets and tags into your pocket.

5. Using rub-ons or stickers, create a circle graphic in the upper right corner of the page. (I used a rub-on large enough to "hold" my chipboard numbers.)



6. Attach a chipboard number "30" to the upper right corner of the page.

7. Punch binding holes.

Page 31
1. Page 31 is actually the inside of your back cover! You decorated the back of your cover during Part 1 of this tutorial! We are now ready to finish our journal!

6. Attach the Father Time image from the Christmas Past Tags to a scrap of chipboard. Distress edges and tie silver ribbon to the top of the tag. Use foam squares to attach the tag to the right of the number 31.

7. Using stickers (or another method if you choose), spell out "New Year's Eve" across the top of the page. I used pennant and letter stickers (Jenni Bowlin) to create a banner, then tied baker's twine bows to the ends of my banner.

8. Punch binding holes.

Binding the Album
For information on binding your album, see Part 1. I used an O-wire system, but you can see that my wire is too small to allow my album to close. I don't mind as I want my album to fan open when it sits on the table.

 
I decided not to tie ribbons to the spine of my album. Normally, I add tons of ribbons, but this time I wanted simple! I only added a charm, tied on with a bit of baker's twine.

That's it, folks! I hope you enjoyed this journey! Remember, if you missed any of the segments, check my right sidebar for links through January 7, 2012. After that, you may check a new page, called Tutorials, which will appear at the top of my blog after the New Year!

Best wishes for a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
