Day Ten With ME!

We are on Day 10 of the Twelve Days of Christmas at Imaginisce and today is my day.
Are you looking for a quick and easy project for preserving your family's December memories? Well, with Imaginisce's Cottage Christmas line, you can have just that. This Christmas Countdown paper contains a number tag for each day. Combine that with your base pages and some bling and you are good to go.





The front and back of the album are 6" x 6" chipboard pieces covered with some of the Cottage Christmas papers and held together with 3" binder rings. I made the inside pages from a variety of products--envelopes, transparencies, tags, etc.

As you can see, each page is embellished with little more than paper, the Christmas Countdown numbers, ribbon, and a little i-rock bling.



All the gorgeous ribbon that I used can be found at Really Reasonable Ribbon. The 1.5" Red Gingham is a fabulous match for Imaginisce's Cottage Christmas line.

So, how would you like to win the ENTIRE Cottage Christmas collection for yourself? Here's how to ENTER:

1. Follow my blog and leave me a comment telling me your favorite page in my December Daily.
2. Pop over to the Imaginisce Facebook page and like us.
3. Follow the Imaginisce blog and leave a a comment for each of the entry tasks you completed. The more tasks (comments) you leave, the more chances you have to win.

Thanks for stopping by today. And be sure to check the Imaginisce blog tomorrow for your chance to win a set of Roly Rosies and Pop Up Posies AND the Petal Roller tool.

Toodles!

I love the #7 in your beautiful book. Well, I think they are all pretty cool but you made me choose :) I'm a follower!

Auntie Em said...

I can't pick just one page from your album...I LOVE them all!!! It's one of the most inspirational and cutest ideas for a countdown album I have come across this season! Love it!
Thank you for sharing! :o)

I am a follower...got to see what you come up with next!!! Cheers!

Wendy Crowe said...

It's so hard to pick one! THey are all so different! I love the ribbon on Day 13 - the holly on Day 7 - the snowflakes on Day 21...I could go on and on! What a great project!

Kelly Massman said...

It's kind of hard to choose which page is my favorite! I love them all! But, I'd have to say, my favorite is: 11 because I love the green, and the clear snowflakes are fun! TFS!

Heather said...

It's hard to choose just one. I liked them all but, if I must page 21.

PamS said...

Your album is so cute. Choosing just one page that stands out more than the others is impossible. I do like the envelope size of page 18. It looks like it could hold lots of stuff. I also like the bow on page 13 and the holly on page 7 is adorable. I love the entire book.

My Serendipity said...

This is sooo cute! each page is perfect but I do like #7 because I love the holly leaves!
Very nice!

Michelle said...

Really? I HAVE to choose? LOL Oh this is a tough one!! LOL I love the whole thing!! But, being I have to choose, I would say pg. 3/4. I love the snowflake transparency and the patt. paper used on 4 and the kraft and Santa. But, honestly, I really do love the whole book!! (and I am already a follower) ;)

Lesabe said...

I think I love day 18 of your album. I like the idea of being able to put something in the little envelope. Maybe a favorite memory so far that year from me and the hubby and then next year the same, make it like a tradition. Love the idea!

Your album is wonderful - hard to choose a single page that I like best! I really like high contrast, so day 2 is particularly eye-catching for me with the dark background!
