Spotlight on Holiday Expressions Blog Hop

Welcome to the Spotlight on Holiday Expressions Blog Hop!

If you came from visiting Wendy Coffman, then you are in the right place.  If you just happened upon my little corner of the blog world, simply start here and continue hopping until you return here -- our fun hop is one big loop for your viewing pleasure.

For today's project, I chose to get a head start on my December Daily album.  The White Pines Picture My Life set is perfectly designed for a December Daily!  It contains a title card for each day of December from the 1st to Christmas day along with 25 journaling cards and a handful of other title cards.

I snagged this great 8x6 Kraft album from Hobby Lobby; it came with 8x6 pocket pages in a variety of layouts.  To cover the end of the book, I used the Cranberry cardstock from the Paper Fundamentals - Adventure pack.  Then, I used cards from the White Pines Picture My Life along with the White Pines compliments pack to create the rest of the cover.  It was so fun and easy because CTMH has done all the work to coordinate everything is this collection!

Supplies used:
*Picture My Life White Pines Scrapbooking Program
*Paper Fundamentals Adventure
*White Pines complements
*Cocoa Exclusive Inks stamp pad
*Fern Extra Thick Baker's Twine
*Bitty Sparkles
*Red Enamel Gems
