Ciao a tutti , l'inizio di Dicembre è davvero dietro l'angolo e oggi SIMON SAYS STAMP MONDAY CHALLENGE  per entrare nello spirito del Natale vi sfida con questo tema: "O" CHRISTMAS TREE! Non è necessario che io vi dica quanto potete spaziare con la fantasia...
Questa è l'ultima settimana per la nostra Guest Designer del mese ANITA HOUSTON AKA THE ARTFUL MAVEN HAVEN, so che avrete già visto i suoi capolavori, ma se così non fosse eccovi il link al suo blog! Grazie Anita è stato un onore e un piacere lavorare con te questo mese!

Hello to everyone, the start of December is just around the corner and this week's theme at the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge is: "O 'CHRISTMAS TREE! It is not necessary I  tell you how much you can explore with your imagination this theme......
This is the last week for our Guest Designer of the month ANITA HOUSTON AKA THE ARTFUL MAVEN HAVEN, I know that you have already seen her masterpieces, but if you haven't  already made,  here's the link to her blog! Thanks Anita, it  was an honour and a pleasure  working with you this month!

Chi mi segue da qualche tempo sa che non sono molto dedita allo scrapbooking tradizionale, ma le carte della collezione natalizia 2016 di Tim Holtz mi hanno fatto venire voglia di provare a creare un piccolo December daily, con le pagine numerate e le copertine decorate che possono contenere anche tag o ricordi di viaggio. Ho mischiato anche carte di precedenti collezioni di Tim a dimostrazione che tutto può essere utilizzato! E poi sto per fare ( come tutti gli anni ) una breve vacanza in Alto Adige e spero di riuscire a fare qualche fotografia!

Who follows me for some time already, surely knows that I am not very dedicated to traditional scrapbooking, but the patterned papers of the Christmas collection 2016 by Tim Holtz  have made me want to try creating a small December daily, with numbered pages and  decorated  covers. It can also contain tags or travel memories. I also mixed up some papers  from previous collections by Tim to show you  that everything can be used, even the smallest scraps of paper!  In a few days  I will go (like every year) for  a short holiday in South Tyrol, and I hope to do some pictures  to be used to fill it !!

Ovviamente non ho solo tagliato e incollato, non ci riesco proprio a stare senza usare  timbri,, textures e tecniche! Quindi come vedete ho usato stencil sia con la texture paste all'esterno che con i Distress inks pad all'interno!
Non so se capita anche a voi, ma riordinando il mio materiale creativo, ho trovato questo mini album di qualche anno fa di 7 Gypsies che mi piace davvero molto e ho pensato di utilizzarlo per questo progetto. E' piuttosto particolare, ha due copertine, lo puoi capovolgere, o sfogliare le pagine interne in modo continuo! Spero riusciate a capire dalle foto comè è fatto!

Obviously I did not only  cut and pasted, I can not really create  without using stamps, textures and techniques! So as you can see,  I used stencils with  texture paste outside and with Distress inks pad inside!
I do not know if it happens to you, but when I rearrange my own creative  stash, I find always something that I forgot to possess! This is the case!  I like very much  this mini album by 7 Gypsies and I thought I'd use it for this project. And 'quite particular, has two covers, you can flip it , or leaf through  the pages to the same  side! I hope you manage to understand from the pictures how it's possible!

Il mio albero di Natale è in copertina e non solo!
My Christmas tree is on the cover and not only!

In questa pagina ho fatto un esperimento! Ho timbrato ed usato polvere da embossing sul Deco sheet di Idea-ology! Spero vi piaccia!

On this page I did an experiment! I stamped and used powder embossing on Deco sheet of Idea-ology! Hope you like it!

Le pagine interne sono volutamente poco decorate per lasciare spazio alle foto, una al giorno come deve essere in un December daily! 

The inside pages are intentionally aren't much decorated to leave  space for pictures, one a day as it must be in a December Daily!

Ora tocca a voi! Come sempre partecipando alla nostra sfida potrete vincere un buono a estrazione da 50$ da spendere sul favoloso store di SIMON SAYS STAMP!

You deserve an award for the BEST Christmas project--EVER! Each and every page is just magical and Tim's new paper (along with one of my old favorites, Merriment (Tim, please bring it back)) really suit your sense of color. It's impossible to pick a favorite layout but I am truly fond of the Peace on Earth page (so clever).

What a perfect place for photos of your trip--have a wonderful time!

butterfly ha detto...

What a fantastic album - as always, your attention to detail is phenomenal. I love the bold funky colour scheme, and those touches of gilded sparkle like the globe and the baubles and words are so perfect. I know I must have missed lots of treats here, but I'm looking forward to some proper catching-up time over the festive season.

Oh, Barbara! What a gorgeous December Daily! I love how the darker colors and plaids give it a more masculine or vintage feel to the holiday. Beautiful detailed pages, and love how you made an accordion book DD!
