Hey all my name is Samantha, I'm 32 from England. Engaged. I have been handcrafting cards since I can remember from making mothers day cards at nursery to selling them to friends and family now. I love seeing the reactions on peoples faces when you make a unique handcrafted card just for them. I have also been a keen scrapbooker/photographer since I was about 5 when my parents started to foster and I always kept a scrapbook for each child we cared for - which goes with them to their new families so they don’t forget any precious memories of their childhood.

December Daily - Tags

Last year when I was in America I saw the DCWV Advent Calendar Kit as per below photos as soon as I saw it I wanted it! But not to make an Advent calendar I wanted to make a December Daily like I have saw loads of people do on YouTube.


I made a 6x6 album from a cheap Click-Ring folder which I cut down and covered in it in the Chipboard from the pack. I also used some vintage red card and the white scalp boarder which is cut from the packaging.


I made the tags almost to as directed in the instructions but I altered a few of them as there was either too much embellishment for one little tag or I wanted to keep the embellishment for another project :-)



I will start the inside pages from the 1st December which I may video if I have time. I will be using a mixture of recycled cardboard, envelopes and cardboard packaging which I will cover with patterned paper for the pages all with a variation on size.

Made a video of me making some of the tags and of the completed album cover. Sorry you will have to ignore my ramblings :-)


Thanks for looking

Hi Sam

Thanks so much for your lovely comments on my blog, and also your lovely messages on DC :)

I'm loving these Sam, the calender kit looks so cute, and bet it's great to put together.

Love the idea of your daily Christmas album too. I know somone who's already done this and it looks great, and they are also about to do another this year.
So really looking forward to seeing all turn out. I love too how you cut the folder down to size, brilliant!

When you get time Sam, take a peek at Pinterest, or sign up, if you're not already. It is just great!! So many wonderful ideas. It works like a pin board of ideas, so anything you like you can pin under your profile.

I'm on there, and have a whole host of mini albums/journals and Christmas journals saved. Here's the link...
