The simplicity of it was intimidating to me. And the fact that I had only one shot to get it right. With scrapbooking this is a terrible way of thinking- you can ALWAYS cover it! With more paper, more paint, stitching, velum, more cloth, really whatever you want!
I decided that I wanted to carry the excitement of our Christmas decor through the mini as well. I don't know what it is about gold & me right now, but we've formed a bond.
I've been having quite the flirtatious affair with my metallic gold spray paint, so that was an obvious choice for my cover and portion of pages.
Like I said before- imperfections are to be expected. And if they bother you that much, they can be covered. You can see that a couple places in the snowflakes are smugged or missing(?) not sure what happened there, but I don't mind it. My "title" is going to cover most of it anyway!
I used this old label maker my employer was just going to throw away! (it's pretty old and I hope I can find more tape for it because I LOVE IT)
Keepin the cover pretty simple for now. I have stuff in the mail, I may add to it, I may not :)
SO that's it so far! I'm planning a Cookie, Beer, & Cheer Party (it's actually this weekend) and so the my last minute ornaments/stocking/decor are taking priority this week.
Is anyone else doing DDs this year??? I'd love to see! Post links in the comments!
