Documenting December 2014 {Title Page}

Well, it's just a mere few days until December 1st and all I've been able to get done is my title page for my December Daily album. I've been second guessing all of the decisions I'd previously made and just had to tell myself to stop looking and get to making. :)

For my title page I gave hand stitching another go, finally tried out heat embossing on wood veneer, and used my newly purchased Tim Holtz Distress Markers. I have to say, I am a huge fan of all three of these techniques and will be trying to incorporate them more often.

I had originally thought I'd use a 6"x8" page that has the 2"x2" pockets, but this is much more my style. Loads of patterned paper, an assortment of embellishments, grid design, and of course some sparkly gold.

And since it's such a huge sale weekend, I'm happy to announce my entire Etsy shop is on sale now through Monday, including the new items pictured above! Use the code HOLIDAY2014 at checkout to save 20% off of your entire merchandise order. If you're on Instagram, head over and see me to enter to win all of the new flair that's being released for you and a friend!

Have a fantastic weekend!
