introducing monthly moments: december

Hi everyone, welcome to the first day of the Papertrey Ink December release countdown! This is going to be a fun month of projects to see from the whole design team. This month is the release of my Monthly Moments: December collection. I am working on a December Moments album and so I have a layout to share with you today from that.

All of the new stamp sets and products that I am sharing today will be available to purchase on December 15th, 10PM ET, at Papertrey Ink.


A little later on in the countdown, I will share all of the details about what's included in the Monthly Moments December collection. But, on to what I have to share with you today...


This is the cover page for my December Moments album. I am using one of the smaller 6" x 8" albums to hold my pages for the season. You can find the albums that Papertrey Ink sells over in the scrapbook section of the store. I am sure you can see that I used a bit of the glitter striped paper that I shared last week on my layout and I plan to use it through out my album.


I die cut the "december" word several times and then layered the pieces up to create a thicker title for the cover page. I added the "moments" word with the new Type Strips II set that you will hear more about later in the countdown. The pine sprigs and berries from the Monthly Moments: December set are stamped in Ripe Avocado and Pure Poppy.


I love the journal card this month! It has holed spaced along the edge so that you can stitch it up if you would like. I created a shaker journal card by layering a piece of die cut acetate over the wreath journal card from the Monthly Moments: December journal card collection that I also die cut with this month's journal card die. I stitched up the sides, added the sequins and snowflakes (they come with the Monthly Moments: December die!), and then stitched the top shut.


You can see more new products from the Papertey Ink December release and projects created with them over at Nichole's blog. Laurie, Laura, Betsy, and Maile are sharing projects over on their blogs today too. And visit the stamp designer blogs to see more with their new products this month: Dawn, Betsy, Melissa, Lizzie, Lexi, and Erin.

Thank you for stopping by today, I will be back tomorrow with more to share!
