December Daily 2013 | Hot Cocoa

For the next couple of weeks, I’ll be posting pages from my December Daily album. Even if you are not creating a December album, I hope you will find the ideas useful for other scrapbook pages.

My December Daily is arranged as an ABC scrapbook rather than a page per day, so I can complete the pages “out of order” if I want. Most pages are full-size 6×8, with a few pocket pages mixed in. Today I’m sharing a clear page:


H : Hot Cocoa

I wanted this page to look like a mug of cocoa with steam coming out of the top.

Everything was stitched with clear thread onto a 6×8 transparency, then inserted into the page protector.

Supplies: The “mug” is a 3×4 transparency that came in the Studio Calico December Daily kit. The confetti and clear snowflakes also came in the kit. The clear letters (“hot” and “c” for the handle) are Heidi Swapp ghost letters from my stash. I love ghost letters! (See Clear Scrapbook Pages and 3×4 Halloween Album). The red twine is by American Crafts.

The facing page is the 6×8 red-and-white striped paper; I plan to add a photo of my kids drinking cocoa. :)

    What a clever soul you are! Steam! You take the Dec. Daily to new hights of simplicity — sort of — I mean, steam and all, ahhh ….
