December Daily series: December 19th

I missed posting a picture on Instagram yesterday but look for the recap tomorrow!! Here is how I created the card!

Tuesday, December 17, 2013


Hey CSM!!! How is everyone?  I hope your December has not been too crazy for you all!  So this layout was a fluke really... my dad gave me a ton of photos from my childhood.  These two popped out at me.  My dress from 8th grade prom was black and white and my 12th grade prom dress was light cream. But the Sr. prom pic was far enough away that I thought black, white and red would just work. My date was wearing a white tux so that sealed the color choices for me.
I was inspired by the latest 213 in 2013 video for the Two Peas site... here is my post there. Have you guys gone back to scrap old photos like this??

Lover Of Purple

So I have been all about Two Peas this past few weeks... and I really got inspired by a video from the Seeing Double series. As I was watching I really knew excatly which pictures I wanted to use and everything... Well you know what they say about plans!!  Anyway I looked thru my pitcures and found two pictures I had posted on instagram and then printed via Walgreens and decided to use those.  I am soo happy with this layout!!
Purple is by far by favorite color and I don't get to use it a lot while scrapbooking about my boys. So I was definitely excited to start looking thru my stack of purple papers and bits!! The only thing about this layout that I didn't like was I HAD to use my favorite paper ever :) ... Bird Song collection Enlightenment by Graphic 45. I even posted on Instagram about not wanting to use it... I was hoarding it I know. Listen I had 2 sheets... I used the first sheet to create my Filofax cover and this sheet I was holding on to... but it was just to prefect not to use! I used papers from: Graphic 45, My Minds Eye, Studio Calico, Sn@p, Recollection by Michaels and American Crafts. Heidi Swapp, Studio Calico, American Crafts and other bits from my stash for the embellishments!  Here is the link for the TwoPeasInABucket video by Lisa Dickinson and here are pictures on my layout! See if you get inspired by it too!! I'm posting on my TwoPeas account also... Look for the post in the Gallery!!

December Daily my way!!

So the December Daily craze has started again!!! I am on this bandwagon, but only in the wheel well! When The Coco Martha mentioned it to Swtdreamz03 and I at the Scrapbook expo in Sept... I was like what is that???  I didn't think about it again until Oct. And before I checked into it I just figured it was a daily calender!! So I decided that I would create a flip calender, but couldn't find exactly what I needed. So I went with a clipboard, and I am sooo happy with the outcome!!!  Now I started this back in October so I would be finished by December, but it turns out that I am only on day 18 so I have some still to finish up.  I am doing a daily video of all the cards... today's video was only 50secs so these are short videos! I am hoping none will be longer than 2 mins!
I have a few videos done about the cards that I will share below and don't forget to follow me on instagram  (craftyscrappymamas) so you can see the still pictures of the cards each day.  I will do a weekly group picture post on here too!!! Happy December!!

***A few people have asked why am I doing a calender and not a full on December Daily book... quite simply I didn't know it was daily scrapbooking at first.  And there would be NO WAY in my crazy life that I could scrapbook or even print the photos for the days every day!! This just works better for me and my family!!  Enjoy your holidays!!***
 PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE share below your links to your December Daily!!
