Ready for a little holiday scrappin' project?

Have you heard of the 25 Days of Christmas Album, or December Daily project? It's a fun way to document and preserve all the great holiday happenings during the month of December.

Every year, I say I'm going to tackle it. For the last three years, I lost interest and saw it more as a MASSIVE undertaking in an already jam packed month.

So, this year, I said WHATEVS, I'm going to do it my way. No expectations. No overblown, product heavy pages. Just me, Avocado Arts stamps, some pics (shot on my iPhone and printed right away on the wireless printer), journal cards and a glue stick. I'm going to SMASH™ it in a Project Life™ stamp it all out with AVOCADO ARTS™ sort of way. Keeping it easy, real and quick to document.

I pulled together a red SMASH™ book, some journaling cards, three inks, a little bit of holiday patterned paper and the October, November and DECEMBER 2011 Avocado Arts stamp sets.

I stamped out some journaling cards for documenting the months happenings, keeping it simple. I have a few more to make and I'll be ready to roll. Check out the ideas below...

Here's the beginning of the book showing the journaling cards. There's a few sneaky peekies in here of the December 2011 set.
Super simple stamping using the October, November and AvocadoType sets. I cut the Merry Christmas sentiment in the October set apart and added the 2011 from AvocadoType.
Simple peppermint kiss stamping from the November set.
Some December sneaky peekies, October and November set.
More simple stamping using October, November and December's set.
I just love those Santa shorts. This will be the perfect journaling card for our visit with the MACY'S Santa in New York. You know he's the "REAL SANTA" after all.
-Enjoy, Lisa :)
