The truth is I do love Christmas, I love the feeling, I love hot coco by the tree and decoration and candy canes and making presents for my family. I have always wanted to participate in the popular December Daily. Last year I made a Christmas Journal and loved it but am really looking forward to the daily part of this challenge. If you want to take a look at my last year's journal, you can find the link here.
The pages are not all the same size. They all vary. The widest page is 4 3/4 inches and the tallest page is 7 inches. The front and back cover measure 6 1/2 x 4 1/2 inches. I know that is smaller than some of the inside pages but I love that. I love the randomness. There are 35 double sides pages plus the covers. Yes, that is huge I know. It's about 1 1/2 inches thick and I love it. I wanted to have plenty of room to start the day after Thanksgiving and end on New Years day. I wanted a couple extra pages for Christmas and Christmas Eve.
2 Get your Christmas paper and glue ready. I used Sobo glue from Hobby Lobby. It's quite pricey at $5.99 a bottle however, it's a quick hold, sturdy glue which I wanted for this project. That way I don't have to wait for it to dry before cutting off my edges. You could also use an ATG glue but I didn't want to spend the money as I would be using a lot of it for this huge book.
I'll have more posts about making embellishments and my pages as I complete them. Thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoyed it and participate. If you'd like to join our challenges, come see us in the Facebook group, Daybook Delights. We'd love to have you.
