2014 December Daily Covers

Hi you all and welcome, tis the season for a cold I found out :) Feeling a bit better today but yesterday I was recliner bound. I did find out that youtube is a great comfort when your not feeling well :) I started watching the Glitter Girl series (I'm surprised I hadn't watched it sooner she's got some great ideas :) Last night I was finally starting to feel better enough to do something crafty on the small scale so I decided to get my covers done for this year's December Daily.
I try to keep as much of the original gold print on the cover that I possibly could and still did some of my own thing on the cover. So I got this little Christmas kit in an early swap box and made sure that it was in the kit to get used up I had planed to use it for the covers. So most of the pieces had been used for the covers. I added a border of washi tape, a border of that scrap green paper from the card I made last week and a scrap from a border strip that I used in the past week. The alphas all came from my current kit, the bits and pieces came from the little swap kit. I thought the tag would be a nice place to put the year and I wrapped around the green glitter string like you would on a tree.
The back cover:
 So the back cover includes this fun placemat I got over the summer with a bunch of doilies I bought at a flea market (the lady want to get rid of everything in the bag so gave it to me for a couple of bucks, she did not know how big doilies are in scrapping right now) it included these placemats, doilies in various shapes and sizes and some other mats too. You'll see a few throughout making the daily and maybe some layouts too this month. I included more of the tape from the front and the larger card that was in the kit and a few little pieces. The season greetings sticker I put crackle accents on it to make for a flair button, but the crackle does things different than the glossy accents. You can't see the writing but you can see the red and the crackle makes it look like a snow flake so I'm good with the way it turned out. Guess I best just use the crackle for glue to get it out of my stash.
 A close up of the front bottom section. I've got a few more pieces left to the little kit and will use it in the daily or on a layout there is one large block that will be great for a title block on a layout.
and a close up of the top.
I'm so glad that I got to get this part accomplished and looking forward to filling in the inside. I haven't been taking many pictures but have ideas and there are challenges to tackle for the days I don't have pictures for. I've got 3 things to tackle this week and get crossed off my list and then I can start getting really crafty so till then have a fun week and enjoy the season :)
I'll be linkying this to Let's December Daily for their covers link up
