For my January Stampede project, I finished up my December Daily album -- about December Daily here. This is the second year I participated, here's my first. All I needed this year were my Mama Elephant stamps including the latest January release, (which by the way, are darling and perfect for scrapbooking or card making) and the following:
I envisioned capturing December 2012 using neutral tones (ivory, white, nude, kraft, woodgrain, translucent, and light pink) complimented by crisp black and a shiny metallic gold, instead of the usual holiday colors. I also knew I wouldn't have time to actually add to the book on a daily basis, so I threw everything in a box, wrote everything in my Google calendar, printed all my iPhone December photos, and put everything together with the Bind-it-all the first weekend of January -- well after the holiday craziness. Here's how it turned out:

Cover:
Mama Elephant stamps used: Smitten, Polar Pals, Believe in Magic, Type It, and Midnight Letters


Here's a snippet of the book:
