December Daily 2013 - December 4

Trust me, I am really trying to catch up here.

Here's the page I make for December Daily

December 4th, 2013

Finally, I kick myself, dig out all the holiday cards I had accumulated since January....


holiday stamps.....


and store bought cards....


handmade tags.....


wrapping up presents....


went to the post office and get them all out, and then pat myself on my back... YAY! I finally get something done for Christmas today.

I am linking page 4 of my December Daily with





Well, I am not done with all the cards and gifts I want to send yet, but at least I get the bigger part of it out today.

While I was digging out all those stuff, I also found old holiday cards printed in 2009


Ok, my question for you, do you have left-over cards like this, and what do you do with them since they are out-dated? Let me know if you have an answer for me! Thanks!

This is gorgeous!!

If you are talking about extra cards, you could use the photo's for some of the mixed media art.I don't do photo cards for that reason! I love your December page and aren't you just so clever to be finished with your cards, that looks like quite a lot! Have a beautiful Thursday, Kirsty, it warmed up to 52, Wednesday and is already 37. Brr...Yes, I am cold. But I love it!

For me I would cut the photos and re-create a layout or canvas MM... or even off the page projects....

Awesome to get stuff done at this time of year! I used to use old cards as embellishments, but sadly, now I just recycle them:(

I am still trying to get stuff done here.. I didn't make any Hand made cards this year :( I have done a couple of journal pages but no cards. So glad to hear you are a head of the game. That has to feel good. Can't wait to hear what you do with your old cards.

Hugs~

Getting my mail out is my very next activity. I really like your layout- that collection of stamps is impressive :)

I finally put a hole punch through the cards, letters and photo cards of past years and bound them with a book ring. Not a fancy solution, but I can easily flip through them and they store neatly in a photo box. I also only keep the *really* special ones anymore.

Angi Barrs said...

Fabulous! I really love those tags!

Loving your December daily wow!!!

Davi said...

WEll arent you so organized, cards done and mailed!! Love your page too :) I would cut out the pics and scrap them or make a mixed media page using them.

mandy- sea said...

Wow... I need a bit of what you are having!! Great to sort your cards out... and your page is fabulous! What a great subject for your DD! I'd scrap leftovers somehow getting creative with them (big smile)...so love that you are showing us your work at Lets December Daily!

dawn said...

WOW, look at all the beautiful cards you have, awesome! I just bought my cards finally yesterday, usually mine are mailed by Dec. 1st. This time I couldn't find any cards that felt right, I am pretty choosy about what I send out. I bought two kinds this time and love them.
Way to go on getting things done, it does feel great when that happens.

I save mine or at least some of my favorites and rehang them each year with the new ones. You can scrap with them, like make a page about that person/family using the card. Decorate the tree or somewhere else with the fronts of them, have always wanted to do that. I do throw some away too. You could put them in a photo album and just keep adding to it each year.
Hope these ideas help you.

LOOOOVE the layout, so cute!! Way to go on plugging along. Keep it up!
