WE'RE DOING DECEMBER! Whether you pre-plan your December Daily or create as you go along in the Christmas month; make your own covers or decorate ready-made ones, use Project Life style with plastic sleeves and pockets or create your own pages.

Mandy's Door Covers (Continued)


The last time I posted (see here) the front cover below to my December Daily was finished (kind of)

Just wasnt sure what to put behind the door, but liked the blue and cream one underneath....

Soooooo, going with the transparency idea.....
this Fancy Pant's Quickcuts seemed perfect....

Cut it down to fit the door and punched some holes for the jump rings....

 Snap decision..... couldnt figure how I could possible fit any journaling or photos etc on the door behind without it taking away from the look of the front cover (didnt really want the Dec 1st page showing though ...

 Sooooooooo decided to stick the transparency in between and  adhere both the doors together to make one solid door- much like a sandwich!

 Then flipping that over... still have the high 'windows' and those patterns are not staying!
 I really want that little top of the Christmas tree peeking through...

And at this stage dont know if that brown shuttered back door will stay yet???
Its just placed there...........because .... it was there LOL!

So the solution for pages for each day will be to add in little envelopes, both solid and wax paper ones...and patterned paper etc measured to fit from the bottom of the doors to the bottom of where the windows begin... problem solved ...and the little Christmas tree transparency can still peek through!  There are more doors that can be fitted in yet (if it works out) so this is not the front and back cover here... the Christmas tree door may very well be  in the middle of the album with many pages still to come after.... we'll see how it turns out as we go along in December.

Here's the cover properly finished this time around
(I've added a lovely little trim down the bottom too)

Its still very much a journey of what might happen with this little album... making it up as it goes along is total fun....  any set plans usually set by me, undoubtedly get tossed out the window somehow...
Soooooo have long given up making any!  hee hee

Not long to go until the 1st December!!!
