December Daily Album with Allison Waken - Part 1

Hi everyone! Allison here today with a fun mini series throughout December. I'm going to be sharing my December mini album with you as the month goes on. I know MANY people look forward to some sort of holiday album or project (as I do) so I hope you'll enjoy following along with me each Saturday through the end of the year.

Today I'm sharing a peek at my cover and title page!

I went simple and classic this year. I LOVE these Remarks Sugarflake dimensional stickers. They adhere really well! The cover is painted with a few coats of gesso and a couple coats of a matte waterbased sealer for protection. 

This binder is sized at 8.75 x 9.75" so the inserts will be 6 x 8" or broken up depending on the page protectors.

For the inside I kept it plain with just a pop of paint on the corner for fun.

I like to do each day leading up to Christmas in my album so I'll have 24 days. Each day will be a spread (or more with inserts) so I designed a "title page" for the front of the album.

Supplies: White (71081) - Carstock, Merry Mail Room Paper (35858) - Kringle and Co, Reindeer Training Paper (35853) - Kringle and Co, Peppermint Parlor Paper(35863) - Kringle and Co, Poinsettia Greenhouse Paper (35850) - Kringle and Co, Coal Mine Paper (35856) - Kringle and Co, Autumn Stickers (42296) - Remarks, Sugarflake Dimensional Stickers (42278) - Remarks, Holiberry Die Cut Cardstock Shapes (85611) - Bits, Black Boho (53423) - Thickers, Mistlebow (59167) - Acrylic Stamps, Kringle and Co Printed Ribbon (89430) - Premium Ribbon

Next week I'll share how I'm storing all my supplies for easy use and tips on having pages ready to go (or not) depending on your preference. Any questions are always welcome!

Are you doing a December album of some sort? If so, be sure to link to them in the comments so we can see what you've been up to as well!
