September Mini

While fooling around at the desk over the weekend I whipped up this simple little mini. My plan, in an effort to jumpstart the creativity, is a little image-a-day September daily. I know September is going to be nuts. Adjusting to the new school schedule, all the after school activities and the full-time work schedule is not going to be easy. I figure this little project will force me to take a photo each day and write a little blurb - think creative thoughts maybe?

It's tiny, only 2 1/2 " x 4"and simple. (I made the cover out of the packaging from a Pink Paislee product.)
Room for a wallet sized photo (trimmed down) and a brief bit of journaling. That's all. No pressure. The little cards (numbered 1-30) are Pink Paislee Daily Junque, as is the pointing hand.
materials: cards, sticker: Pink Paislee; label sticker, stamp: Studio Calico; number stickers: Sassafras Lass; ink: Staz On

I'm not sure if that is the final binding - I guess I will see how thick it gets once the photos are attached. I'm thinking my December daily this year is going to be similar, tiny format, too! How about you? Making a December daily this year?

Cute!! I'm excited to see this as it fills up. :)

I'm doing December Daily this year but have decided to do it completely digi. Otherwise it just gets in the way of all my "regular" scrapping.

You know, I always think I'm going to do the December daily and it never gets done...sigh...maybe this year will change?

I have these very same journaling cards and haven't decided what to do with them...I'll have to stalk you to see what you come up with! Yes on the DD, but still thinking about the format.

LOVE that mini!! I have those cards, but just used one on a layout - so I would need a new set.
So adorable!!

I've never made a December Daily, and not sure I will either... Not before we (might) have kids. December is not really a special month for me where I am in my life atm.

But I love this! Yummy colors :) Thanks for sharing the idea!

Great idea! I've never tried one of the "daily" journals before - but this looks manageable! Thanks for inspiring me :)
