I've been stockpiling information, memorabilia, photos and more to get my Project Life album up to date and I'll be sharing a lot of pages and more about that next week but in the meantime I thought I'd share some December journaling cards I stamped up a few weeks ago showcasing the October Studio AE Stamp Set as well as Ali's December Daily stamp set for this year and one of her holiday stamp sets. I always love just how well her different stamp sets work together.
I used all Hero Arts inks for my journaling cards and I absolutely love how they turned out.
If you are stamping with the shadow and mid-tone inks and don't like how the wet ink looks right after stamping, give it a few minutes because as the ink dries you get the most beautiful, rich color.
These mid-tone inks are definitely my fav's:
I am not doing a dedicated Decmeber Daily album this year.
And I'm okay with that.
I thougth long and hard about it and decided that Project Life is enough for me right now. And I can include a lot of that "December Daily" info right in my Project Life album. Stamping up my journaling cards each day should provide that DD creative outlet that I enjoy so much! ;)
If you want to check out how I have scrapped December Daily in the past, check out these past year's blog posts:
By the way, the journaling card featuring the hanging bell may well be my favorite of the bunch. It was the last one stamped, too. The string and bow the stamped bell is hanging from was hand drawn by me. Easy peasy but it makes the design.
