To make the mini I took 8 sheets of solid 12"x12" cardstock and scored them down the middle. Next I cut them in half. After folding this gave me 32 6"x6" sides to work with. I like doing it this way in case I want to staple, sew or use brads; that way it won't show on the other side. When I've got the pages all filled in I'll bind them with a wire binding and add it to the December Daily collection.
In hopes that I'll stay on top of it this year I collected all of my Christmas-y stuff in a a couple of boxes - stamps in one and other embellishments in another. Since the pages are all cut out and ready to go it should be pretty simple to whip something up. I'm using the calendar in the background to jot notes about each day so that when I get the photos printed (once a week) I can refer back to it to know why I took that photo. If I don't get a photo that's okay too. I can just write about something (or have a family member add their 2 pennies!) - a favorite memory, something one of us said or did, plans we have, whatever strikes my fancy.
Dec 1st and 2nd are ready to go...
Better get off the computer so I can get Dec 3rd done. Ciao!
