December Daily at The Cutting Cafe

 I see a lot of people are working on their December Daily albums.  It is such a nice way to document and enjoy the festivities and joys of December.  The inspiration at The Cutting Cafe this week is the December Daily sets that Regina offers.  I decided to do something a little more concise than a full month of pages.  I decided to go with twelve.  Perhaps I was influenced by the Twelve Days of Christmas!  First I created journal cards using the numbers from the Christmas Daily set and the scallop frame from Jot It Down.
Then I printed sentiments from Christmas Daily and December Daily 2.   I created the book from a  Canson art paper so it has a nice heavy textured feel. 
 I binded the pages with red and white twine.  I'm not quite through with it yet, but these pages will show you the direction I'm going with it.  
 I added a tag to this page that can be removed so I can use the front and back of the tag and add a picture to the journal card.  Here are pages two and three:  
 Whatever you decide is your take on the December Daily Album, Regina has the sets to help you out.  All the other DT inspiration will be up on Wednesday evening, so be sure to drop by the blog
We went to the Farmers Market yesterday and no one had Sage!  Apparently, everyone lost their plants due to the extreme weather we've had. Finally, we found a package at the new Whole Foods Market - they only had one package left!  So glad we found it, I think fresh sage makes a huge difference in the dressing.   I'm getting so excited as its getting closer to Thanksgiving - can't wait for Lauren to get here!
