Day 22 was created using a beautiful altered coffee sleeve that was made for me by my friend Jamie (YT: ScrappinStampers). After drinking and nibbling on about half of the wonderful treat bag that it contained, I cut the front panel off, re-adhered the pom pom trim that was on the bottom of the back panel at the top of the front panel, and hot glued 3 edges of the sleeve onto the page to create a pocket. Jamie’s Copic coloring is just amazing and now I will have her artwork as a permanent part of my December daily! I made a journaling card into a tag by adding the dies I cut out using my Diemond Dies Holly Leaves Die Set with green glitter paper and red card stock (I put Glossy Accents on the berries, which gave them a shiny, realistic look).

Day 23 was two pages. The first is just a card that I made using my free digi, Happy HOWLidays. This was the card that I made a lot of to finally get some cards out so I thought I should document that in my December Daily. I hadn’t really thought of it before, but the inside of the card makes a perfect journaling spot. The next page was a fun one. I used some left over wrapping paper. This kraft paw print paper made me gasp with delight when I first saw it wrapped around a gift sent to me a month or so ago so I salvaged as much as I could and had been hoarding it for a special project. I used the Tim Holtz Sizzix Movers & Shapers L Die called “In the Bag” to create a little faux shopping bag, adding a twine handle and a hand made double twine bow. This was a great way to represent all the Christmas shopping I’ve been doing as well as the doggy bag that I got at a holiday dinner I attended at Maggiano’s (part of the menu has a two-fer; order one dish for dinner and they make a second one for you to take and eat at home the next day for free!). The little decorative tag I made using a dimensional sticker and one of the smaller tag dies from the Diemond Dies Nesting Tag Die Set. I used one of the larger tag dies to create a journaling tag that slides in and out of the doggy bag. As I’ve said before, I think this tag nesting die set is one of the most useful dies I own–it has been indispensable for my December Daily album.
Day 24 was a simple one. I simply used another one of the tag dies, some left over glitter paper and bit of gross grain ribbon, and the last scrap I had of one of my favorite papers from the Graphic 45 “Bohemian Bazaar” collection. The tag is finished off with the Lawn Fawn scripty joy die. I die cut it out twice and offset the words to create a kind of shadow effect that helps the word pop off the busy background. A little journaling on the back of this tag was all the page required.
