It's a Blog Hop with Kiwi Lane Designs

Hello everyone and welcome!  Thanks for hopping along with us today!  I'm with the Kiwi Lane Design Team and am sharing a fun project for you all today......

We've all heard of the December Daily and I don't know about you but I haven't executed the making of one or shall I say the "idea" of making one in time to actually use it during the month of December!  

Well this year I did and here it is:

The mini album is made with Doodlebug Designs North Pole Collection and Kiwi Lane's designer templates.  I love this collection because of it's bright and festive colors. 

Now because there are 25 pages in this mini album I'm not sharing all 25 pages today.  Today is a sampling of what's to come :)  And because I was organized enough to complete the album in time for December doesn't mean that I am on top of getting the photos in it for the last five days of December, ha!  So with that said, hear are some of the cutsie pages to tantalize your crafty taste buds.

This page is made using the Mini Scallops design templates.  I layered them and popped them up using foam tape.  I then layered the scallop circles for the bird embellishment.  Added a little twine, mini tags and bling.  Gotta have some bling ;)

Here I used the two ornament templates from the Christmas designer template package.  I also use the circles template to cut out the inside of one of the ornaments to create a frame.  

A fun Christmas tree made with the scraps of paper that were casualties in the making of this album.  

And here is the red circle from the inside of the ornament that was shown on one of previous pages.  I'm all about using scraps, negative pieces and whatever else I've got laying around me while I'm working to incorporate into my work.  

Supplies Used:  Doodlebug Designs North Pole Collection, Kiwi Lane Designs Christmas, Mini Scallops and Circle templates, The Twinery baker's twine, Thickers, foam tape, Crop-a-dile, corner rounder, adhesive. 

To share all of the December Daily, I plan on posting every Monday throughout December, to display the previous weeks photos and pages. So I hope you'll join me this coming Monday for some more fun!
