I'm starting to re-visit my 25 Days books and thinking about getting a jump on this year's book. I've just completed two new title/intro. pages for my books. I've been loving the globe/map papers that companies are coming out with, so both of these pages use them.
I didn't have an intro page for 2011, so I just made this one...
The paper I used was on of my favourites from last year's Crate Paper's Sleigh Ride Collection. If you look closely, you will notice that this is the North Pole...LOVE IT! I didn't want to cover that up so I used some Heidi Swapp Ghost Alphas for "December". You can still see through them and that makes me happy.
The chunky glittered letters for "days of" are American Crafts Thickers by Dear Lizzy. The colour was absolutely perfect!
I'm crazy about the aqua and red combo for Christmas, so I added a few touches of red with the large "25" from Pink Paislee's City Sidewalks Collection and the "you are here" sticker comes from October Afternoon's Travel Girl Collection.
These numbers are from the City Sidewalks Collection also.
For this year I completed this page.
I like the trend for scattering sequins on pages, so I made a couple of bursts of sequins on the page. The "25" and "December" is a foil dimensional sticker from MAMBI.
I used some older chipboard letters from Heidi Swapp for "days of".
This cute Santa is from the October Afternoon City Sidewalks Collection. I love that he's pointing at my title and I positioned him to stand right at the North Pole on this map paper which is from Prima's Holiday Jubilee Collection. There was a geotag where he's standing and I really liked that, but it just didn't work to keep it, so I positioned him over it but left the title strip on the paper that says "North Pole".
Lastly, I thought I would include my intro page that I made for 2012, but then I never made a book for 2012. But, you know I will still make one (since I just finished 2010 a couple of months ago!). Everything is cut out with my Cameo and then the negative space is layered over a foil background sheet. It's much easier to do it this way rather than trying to fiddle with the detailed positive cuts.
I drew the 25 Days and then traced and cut it out with my Cameo.
