December Daily Album | Wilna Furstenberg

This year I am doing the December Daily (as inspired by Ali Edwards) collaborating with Basic Grey! I love the Christmas Line Aspen Frost and used it mainly for the foundation pages of my album. What a stunning Christmas collection! I LOVE the color combination of this collection and thought it would be perfect to work with on my Album.

Last year my album had some day dividers and I decided i wanted to do it again this year. You can find the download to the divider Silhouette cameo cut file here as well as the circle number cut file here. There are 2 number cut files – small and large.

The actual album is from last years’ December Daily Studio Calico kit (i got an extra one). I covered the front with Christmas die cuts using the Silhouette Cameo and then spay painted it white, using probably 5 layers that dried completely in between. The inside page protectors are from simple Stories. I am looking forward to start with my album December 1st. Knowing myself, i don’t do a full 25 days. I only document 10 or 12 days every December that serves as a reminder of the joys of the season.

Thank you for coming on this journey with me!

  1. Hi Wilna,

    This album is gorgeous, and so inspiring… like always. Thank you so much.
    I’m starting to gather stuff for this year’s december daily.It will be my first one.
    I’ve tried to download the silhouette file for the dividers, but dropbox says the file is corrupted.
    Do you think it would be possible to give me another link so that I can download it ?
    Many many thanks,

  2. Hey there! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any issues with hackers?
    My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended
    up losing months of hard work due to no back up. Do you have any
    solutions to prevent hackers?

  3. I drop a leave a response when I like a article on a site or if I have something to
    contribute to the conversation. It’s a result of the sincerness
    communicated in the post I looked at. And on this article BasicGrey Guest Designer : Wilna
    Furstenberg | BasicGrey Blog. I was moved enough to write a thought :)
    I actually do have a couple of questions for you
    if it’s okay. Is it just me or does it look as if like some of these comments appear like they are coming from brain dead people?
    :-P And, if you are writing on other places, I’d like to keep up with anything fresh you have to
    post. Could you list all of all your public pages like your twitter feed, Facebook
    page or linkedin profile?

  4. I every time used to study paragraph in news papers
    but now as I am a user of web so from now I am using net for articles, thanks to web.

  5. It’s really very complex in this active life to listen news on Television, therefore I only use internet for that reason, and obtain the hottest news.

  6. Thanks for the good writeup. It actually was once a amusement account it.
    Glance advanced to more introduced agreeable from you!

    However, how could we be in contact?

  7. First of all I would like to say awesome blog!

    I had a quick question which I’d like to ask if you
    do not mind. I was interested to find out how you center yourself
    and clear your thoughts prior to writing. I have had difficulty clearing my mind in getting my thoughts
    out there. I do enjoy writing however it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are generally wasted just trying to figure out how to begin.
    Any ideas or hints? Appreciate it!
