Latisha Yoast (you are here)

Today I am using the Spellbinders LF-114 Grand Circles die template to create this mini-book, it is actually my December Daily album for this upcoming December (this is my foundation, my pictures will be added in Dec).  My December, is going to be really busy an also very special, so this is the perfect way for myself to remain in the moment this holiday season, and a great way to remember the little things I often forget about.  To create this album, I went through my pattern paper, card stock etc... that I had been hoarding for that "special" project, and cut/embossed the paper using the largest die in the Grand Circles die template set.  I then simply embellished each page, so that when each day rolls around, all I need to do is journal and slap a picture down (easy peasy right!).  There are 7 dies in the Grand Circles set, ranging is size from 4 1/4 inches up to 7 1/4 inches, this would make each die around $7 (is that not a steal or what!)  Because I used so much product on this project, I will write a supply list for each page at the bottom of this post.  You can click on each picture, to enlarge it as well.









Simply leave a comment on my blog to be eligible to win the http://spellbinderspaperarts.com/blog/holiday-hoppin-with-spellbinders!  One winner will be chosen from all the comments on all the blogs participating today.  Comments made in the first 48 hours of this post will be eligible to win.  Winner’s names will be published on the Spellbinders Blog on November 22, and they will have 48 hours to reply to Spellbinders to claim the prizes.

Thank you!
