Wanna win a Christmas RAK?

In the spirit of giving this holiday season, I would like to send one of my blog readers this Christmas kit that I put together. The kit includes MANY goodies from manufacturers such as Heidi Swapp, Tim Holtz, 7Gypsies, Making Memories, Elle's Studio, K & Company, Hambly, Every Jot & Tittle and Magistical Memories that can be incorporated into your December Daily Album project or anything your heart desires.

To win, all you have to do is sign up to be a FOLLOWER of my blog (you'll find the prompt on the left side) and leave a comment on this post by Wednesday at 9 PM EST. I will randomly pick a number and draw a winner on Thursday! :-) If you already follow my blog, then just leave a comment.

This week, I will officially start documenting things for my December Daily. I've already started putting it together, but I have lots more pages to complete. Here's a sneak peek!

I am using the Prima fabric album, which I painted with Making Memories cranberry acrylic paint and red velvet Glimmer Mist. This was an idea I got from Amanda (on Ali Edwards' blog). I love snowflakes and I found these chipboard snowflakes in a Stampin' Up kit that were just perfect to use as templates. I also used a holly berry tree that I had in my stash for added detail. I will likely keep the covers pretty simple so they last a long time.

Front and back covers

Inside covers

I am painting the interior canvas pages and using lots of embellies, stamps, etc. throughout. Here's a glimpse at a couple of my painted pages.

I have lots more to come so stay tuned! And please share your Christmas album and/or other holiday creations with me. I'd love to see what you're doing!

Merry wishes and joyful dreams!
