Welcome to December!

December 1 -wow!  How did that get here so fast?  So many crafty things will start today in blogland - Tim Holtz's 12 Tags of Christmas; Shimelle's Journal Your Christmas; Ali Edwards December Daily to name a few.  I'll definitely play along with Tim's tag tutorials and will be working on a JYC album with hipstamatic pictures.  In addition, I'll be jotting down some favorite events of the season in a little mini album. Are you doing any December art?  Over at Gingersnap Creations, the theme for the month is Snow.  Here's my first entry - its a theme entry featuring my favorite snowman stamp from Club Scrap, stamped on sticky back canvas and stickled.  The background is plaster, plainted with a color washes of purple and blue then also stickled.  Gotta get some sparkle going for December!

Well....December has hit us like a ton of bricks...or should that be a ton of snow....so a snow theme seems like a pretty apt one.
At least I'll have time today to get started on JYC as work has been canceled!!May even have a go at a Timmie tag.
Love that little snowman.

I'll be doing something but nothing too formal or complicated - taking things as they come this year!

Happy December! Love the idea of using hipstamatic pics, can't wait to see it all come together :)

glad you are doing Tim's tagsagain - watching your creations last year is one of my creative highlights from december 09.

I'm thinking i'll do some mix of stuff prompted by Shimelle and Ali E but not sure how it will work out.

your little snowman seems like the perfect spokesman to welcome in the new month! i am going to do shimelle's journal your christmas this year - i can't wait!

Super cute! I'm still on the fence about doing any kind of Christmas journal. I think in my mind I'm hoping it will just happen on its own (ha!). Otherwise, I'm still busy sewing and finishing up gifts for my family.

Happy December Rinda! I'm doing JYC but like last year I'm calling it "Our December" - more of a catch-all, anything and everything album,

I'm doing JYC prompts mostly,mixed in with Dec Daily pages when the prompt is something I feel have well covered in previous albums.

an awfully sweet snowman he is. I like how you did the snowflakes in red, they really POP off that gorgeous background!

December art... finishing up the Christmas cards, some Graphic 45 projects and a photo/art project for each day in December... I figure it will make a fun little album and get me practicing some photography skills!

I, too, luv all the crafty things that are occuring in blog land. This will be my third year of Ali's December Daily and I am taking Winter Stories class as well and play along with Tim...LOL
Enjoy the season,
Catherine
PS...was in Shimelle's blogging class but was traveling and did not post much.

This is lovely! Very sparkly and just right for December. I am taking part in JYC, although I also use December Daily bits as well. Have done my first page for today - really enjoy creating a journal over the festive month, this is my fourth year and it is lovely looking back at earlier ones.

Sorry it took so long to stop by for a visit, but I had a ton of things going on today. Congratulations to you also for be a Gingersnap Creations Visiting Artist! I feel so honored to be in such great company? Love your plastered background and the "snowperson" is too adorable! Catch you next week!
