Fusion Challenge: Shaped December Daily Page

If you didn't get a chance to check out the last Fusion Challenge gallery, you should most definitely do so. SO many great entries, so difficult to chose just one. I expect that this challenge is going to be similarly popular, with all the silver-glittered goodies.

Using the photo and the sketch, I created another December Daily page. I haven't been the best at making the DD pages ahead of time, but I really feel after this weekend I'll be able to focus my efforts more on that project. For this page I used several silver glitter star dies from Papertrey Inc., and the Leafy Branch die from Top Dog Dies to give it more of a laurel wreath look. The clear Pretty Pink Posh sequins give another kind of sparkle.

I didn't completely adhere all the stars and I'm enjoying how much I'm drawn to touch them. The red star in the back is an extra barn star I had from this project last year.

One of the nice things about making your own shaped pages for December Daily, or any mini album, is that you get peeks of the pages coming up. That's a good reason to keep a consistent feel throughout the album (in terms of colors, style, fonts, etc.) To make this page I took a strip of mat board (will punch holes where needed for the album posts) and used double-sided patterned paper as an arm to hold the shape out. The photo is just temporary until I fill it with a December memory. If you will, imagine large script writing in ink on the bottom of the circle.

Here are some fabulous projects by our design team!

WinnersWill be chosen by all of our teammates in two weeks. We each will choose one favorite. The winners will be announced at 4 am (PST) in two weeks!
