December Daily Daybooks with a Stache of Cheer!

When my 10 year old daughter learned that I was going to complete a December Daily this year she immediately decided she wanted to do one with me (she knows how to melt my heart!).
I'm sure this will quickly turn into a new mother-daughter tradition!
This is the daybook I made for her to use as her December Daily. She picked out the papers and I cut, scored, and sewed the binding for her. I didn’t embellish the inside like I normally do on my handmade daybooks because I wanted her to be able to make it her own.
However, I couldn’t resist embellishing the cover for her! lol
The snow speckled overlay I picked up at the Scrapbook Convention so I'm not sure who makes it. I hand sewed the binding using some red embroidery string I had laying around the house.
The mustache is from a punch I found at Hobby Lobby and the washi tape is by Recollections from Michaels. I used AC foam thickers for the year.
The paper used is an assortment of Christmas themed papers by Echo Park, SEI, and Basic Grey.
These are just a few of my favorite pages.



When I hand sew my daybooks I always use an envelope to hide the inside stitching. I just unseal an envelope and place it in the center of the book, sew, and then re-glue the envelope! Easy Peasy!

This cute circle sentiment is from Whimsie Doodle Digi Stamps. It punches out perfectly with my
1.5 inch circle punch.

My daughter was telling one of her close friends about December Dailies and her friend quickly became excited about the idea. So of course I whipped up a similar book for her to use! lol


Thanks for stopping by! Hopefully I will be back soon to show you my December Daily!
Gentle Hugs!
