1) I got my SC box of goodies on Tuesday, and wow, it's like Christmas came early this year. Since my UPS notice had my box listed as 3lbs, I thought it would be the regular sized SC box, but nope, it was my first time ever getting one of SC's bigger boxes ;) It was filled to the brim with all the lovely things I ordered in December, as well as January's kit and add-ons. Oh man, you all have to get your wallets ready; January's kit and add-ons look absolutely beautiful! At the very least, you must pick up more SC patterned paper this month; the designs are definitely in my top favorites of SC's exclusive papers. Not only are the designs gorgeous, I'm digging the blue/green/yellow/beige color combination. I'm printing out some photos tonight so I can start working with the kit tomorrow. I'll definitely have sneaks to share sometime before reveal.
2) I had the pleasure of being a guest on the JBS Inspiration blog this month. I really enjoyed working with their red/black line. Follow the link here to see the layout I made.
3) Finally, a December mini-book update! I've been having so much fun with mine, and I love how bulky it's getting. I'm so glad I decided to do this project this year. I don't have pages for every single day, but that's okay...it's getting quite full anyway :) My SC December 09 kit patterned papers are almost all down to scraps (which means I'm moving towards my goal to finish up that kit!), so I've started pulling papers and embellishments from past SC kits to use in my mini. My room is an absolute mess, but that means I'm being creative, right? Hehe... I've also pulled out all my SC stamps, and it's been fun using some of the older designs again. Love love love my SC stamps. Okay, here are some more pages to share:
As always, let me know if you have any questions, and I'll try my best to answer them. Oh, if you noticed in my photo above of some of my SC happy mail, I picked up the SC Days of the Week stamp set, Doilies stamps, various colors of Mister Huey, and the Making Memories Noel envelopes. I'm excited to use them in my December mini!
I'll end this post with some December Dailies that I'm loving and are inspired by (other than Ali's, which is a given!).... Kelly Goree, Elizabeth Kartchner, Lisa, Vee, Denise Nichols, and Wilna Furnstenberg. What are some of your favorite DDs this year?
