Ali's December Daily 2009 starts tomorrow. I completed my album and hope to follow along. I used My Scrapbook Nook December kit for the cover and some of the inside pages. The circles were punched out from the glitter paper using 3/4" circle punch. The album is by American Crafts that I got last year for something different. I love it. More photos and details on the inside pages this week. I used the embellishments that I am selling in my Etsy shop for some of the pages.

I added little rhinestones that come in the kit, to the snowflakes on the acetate sheet. I used white puff paint on Prima letters. The flower center is painted with Elmer's glue and sprinkled with red glitter. I found this to be the easiest way to add glitter. For the layout I used the die cut paper with the black cardstock as my base. The photo is of us from last Christmas. Alex looks so little there. I can't wait to see what he does this Christmas. The round journaling note is cut from the back of Making Memories Trims & Treats package. The number is from a package of numbers from Shabby Chic...all in the kit or sold separately at the store.

ATTENTION!!! Shimmerz Paints is having a Design Team Call! Shimmerz is a cutting edge manufacturer, and looking for individuals who are not afraid to think outside of the box. Get Messy! Shimmerz is looking for artists and designers who can create a variety of projects such as layouts, cards, altered art, and whatever else you can do!
You can find all the details on Shimmerz blog.
Come and check us out. I was recently asked to join this wonderful team and I love it so much. Shimmerz is so easy and fun to work with. You have to try out!
For this layout I used rub-ons to create my own patterned paper. I have a box full of rub-ons and sometimes I don't know what to do with them. These particular rub-ons were on a sheet, 8 1/2 x 4 inches. I placed them on white cardstock and started rubbing. What is fun about these is that you can paint them with any Shimmerz color to match your layout. I know you have some. I used Royal Red and Golden Wheat Shimmerz paint and December Sky Blingz . I didn't add anything else. This is what Shimmerz and Blingz looks like. It reflects light and it shimmerz.
***I have some new things in my Etsy store, I am slowly trying to update. If there is something that you see here and like, let me know.

This is a new Holiday Planner printable stamp set. The set features 3 assorted sheets for planning your: Gift lists, Christmas Card list and Misc. Christmas notes..The 3 sheets are approx. a little bigger then 7 by 3 inches....The sheets come 2 on a page...The set also comes with 18 other assorted images.I added a printable stamp from the Christmas Circles Set 2 that I punched out with my Marvy Uchida scalloped punch. The tree printable stamp is from All About Christmas set. The base for this planner is a manila folder. I have been saving directions from Taylor VanBruggen, and then the other day I found this video tutorial. This Holiday planner set was perfect for the project. The notes fit perfectly in the pockets. I even used my favorite Avery label. The Cutting Cafe' sets are so easy to print, cut and put together. I used Making Memories Mistletoe patterned paper and SEI ribbon. This was so much fun. I want to do a different project with this accordion file folder.
Let me know if you have any questions.
***Regina is hosting a giveaway and this Holiday Planner printable stamp set can be yours. Leave me a comment and I will draw one name on Sunday morning, November 15.
I have something fun planned, coming soon.
