December Daily 2010 Preparations

Aargh, What a mess....!

If you haven't heard of Ali Edwards December Daily pop on over to Ali's Blog and find out all about it. I have decided to join in this year and am way behind in my preparations.....as usual. Everything seems to take so much longer than I anticipate and I take forever to make a decision :) I have already changed my mind and after cutting and covering my cover, I decided to change the size from 6 inch wide to 6 1/2 so that I can have a margin and use my Bind it All to bind it together rather than rings. Not sure if I will try and save my cover or make a fresh one.

First Cover

As this is my first year I am pretty much following Ali's design and have used her daily templates which you can find here. I managed to find a few reasonably priced acetates at the Hobbycraft Show last week and being very frugal I cut each one in half to spread the load a little. I've also been printing a few off myself with designs from the Silhouette Store.

Printed Acetates
I've also used some designs from the store to attach to the front of each acetate with the date.
I've cut some extra numbers and used glossy accents to give them a glaze.I can't make up my mind whether to cover the back of each day with patterned paper or leave it blank.....see, told you I have trouble deciding.....

Will update when I've done a little more,

Thanks for looking,

Sue
