Wrapping up December Daily
And just like that, December Daily is over.
This was my second year doing this project and I really loved it. True, my style isn't super crafty. Oh sure, I learned how to use my Silhouette this year, but overall, I kept it pretty simple.
Here are the final pages.
On the back side of the wrap up page is a full page image that looks like this:
If you've followed my album this December, you know that I bought a PictureMate Charm about midway through the process. (And no, it wasn't a freebie from Epson. I shelled out the cold, hard PayPal cash for it.) After I blew through the first starter pack of paper and ink, I reordered a set of the matte paper plus ink, and I am seriously in love with it.
I'm a huge fan of Ilford Gallerie papers when I print on my HP, but the Epson matte 4 x 6 paper feels just like it. It has a smooth, luster, matte finish. And, the photos look great.
I have a dilemma now: because I am committed to doing Project Life digitally in 2014, I'm wondering how to get the best use of my new little PictureMate. I don't want it to just sit on my desk, sad, lonely and wondering why no one seems to care. I'm either going to have to come up with a new project that requires prints, or just start scrapbooking good old fashioned pages more often.
Now THAT'S a crazy idea. Scrapbook pages.
Thanks, Ali Edwards, for all the December Daily inspiration. You are cool and I'm happy to call you my friend.
