Tim Holtz Style December Daily 2017

Hi everyone and welcome. I've been caught up throughout the week creating a Tim Holtz style December Daily for 2017, sharing the 'work in progress' on my Instagram and Facebook pages as I've gone along. As promised, it's now time to reveal the 'finished' journal - I say finished because it's now ready for completion with photos and memories from each day through December, hence the term December Daily!


The covers have been created using Tim Holtz Christmas Baseboards, sturdy 4x6 inch decorative bases that can easily be hole punched and then decorated. Tim's new Festive Greens Thinlits dies from Sizzix work beautifully with the Holiday Greens Thinlits dies, and if you cut them from Classic Kraft Stock then they are also pre-coloured! Here are some close ups of the cover details;




Here's a video walk-through of my 'completed' December Daily so you can see each page and element in turn;


Inside the pages are made from a mix of Holiday Paper Stash, Christmas Kraft Stock, Christmas Cabinet Cards, and Idea-ology Christmas Ephemera. I did some simple stitching around each page purely to add detail, though it also adds security to the pockets and tuck spots. The smaller pieces of Ephemera and more die cuts help to decorate the pages whilst leaving plenty of space for the photos and journaling which will be added throughout December. It's as though Tim had a plan for this as his Countdown Brads are the perfect way to mark each date. Hide the back of the brads with Design Tape and Holiday Flashcards. I even created some transparent pages by stamping the Nordic Background with Archival Ink on acetate, layered it with another sheet of acetate and sandwiched a Woodlands die cut in between. Don't forget to use your Metallic words stickers to help document the photos and of course you can always add some stamping and Remnant Rubs! To finish a collection of holiday themed charms, altered with white gesso, have been hung using jump rings from the spine. I would just mention that the 'essentials' for creating a good December Daily include Carnation Red Enamel Accents for those dimensional berries, Matte Distress Collage Medium and Dina Wakley White Paint.


I hope you've enjoyed seeing inside my Tim Holtz style December Daily and feel inspired to create a memory book of your own. And as luck would have it The Funkie Junkie Boutique have a 35% off MSRP discount on Christmas/Winter products through November 24th!

Whatever you're up to for the rest of this weekend take care of yourselves and get creative! Jenny xxx
