December Daily Inspiration

At Scrap Shotz it has become an almost tradition to have a month of inspiration as we head into the Christmas season. I show you some quick and easy last minute gifts or home decor items or something to dress your table with and even gift ideas (that maybe you want to see under the tree this year) - you never know what you will see here!

So let's start off the first few days with our December Daily!!! For this year, I wanted to be simple, easy and something my children could participate in. I used the WRMK Envelope Board to create 31 envelopes of varying sizes, using up my Christmas stash or any paper that had red, green, white, blue, gold, silver (well any matching colours!) - and wow, did it ever make a dent in my stash!!

I also used the Spellbinders dies to create a label on each envelope that I embossed with the Tim Holtz embossing folders (wood grain and brick wall). Adorning each label is a die cut snowflake and the uber cool December Daily thickers from Studio Calico --- seriously one of my favorite items this year!

My daughters and I will be journalling each day using the journal cards from Simple Stories, American Crafts and Smash Books. Each girl will be using the American Crafts Project Life pens because we just adore them....I mean we really really love them! (I use them just for writing everyday because I love them SO much!) I have taken a picture each day and will print them off and put them into each envelope with a corresponding journal card. It is a fun activity I do with my girls each day...well, in reality, it is every 2-3 days. 

How is your December Daily faring? I would love to hear!

Join me on the blog as I work to inspire you and/or spread some Christmas cheer throughout the month of December!
