Happy Sunday to you!

Today kicks off an exciting week of hopping between Imaginisce and Cheery Lynn Designs! What a wonderful mix of perfect scrappy goodness!!!


My project is fairly large so let's kick this off!

First off, I have a secret... I have an *ahem* rather luxurious assortment of Cheery Lynn Dies. Some might say it's a habit of collection of sorts, but I just love them! They are so pretty and add so much to a project! When we received the products for our exchange, I was giddy!

I received the: Large Sunflower Doily, Olive Branches and Daisy Lace Bracelet to work with. What to create? As you may have seen, we recently released the all new Christmas Cheer collection. I've always wanted to create a "December Daily", but haven't attempted it. I thought this would be the perfect way to use these products together.

The first thing to do was to choose an album. I selected one of the divided page protector types along with one refill of regular full page protectors. It's a 6x8.





I used our i-Rock Mini Iron and i-Rock Motif to decorate the spine.


I also dug out some number pages from an older Imaginisce collection that I had. Ironically, I only had the numbers and some rub-ons left. The colors coordinated perfectly for this project, so I decided it was time to use those up! The photo's here are taken with the page protectors on.


This is the first interior page. I used the Cheery Lynn Window Frame A for this and trimmed beneath it with the Anastasia border. Santa and Rudolph are peeking through the window on the top.




Anastasia Border used here on the left 4x6.


Olive Branches decorates my "3".

Daisy Lace Bracelet peeks out under my layers.


The French Lattice Large die is used here on top of vellum and white cardstock.

There are a variety of dies used throughout my pages and you'll see them accenting elements in addition to being a featured part of a page. I added others dies as I went along the way from my personal collection and noted them.

Some techniques used here are re-use of packaging as layers. The relief frames from our stickers were used on days for "9" and "13" I loved how nicely that worked to frame the numbers. I am going to embellish more with my i-Rock and i-Top as I work my photos and memorabilia in through the season.
