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!

    I’ve tried to download the silhouette file for the dividers, but dropbox says the file is corrupted.
