December Day By Day: December Title Page

Happy Friday! 
I've decided that I will be playing along with the December Day By Day happening in the Elizabeth Craft Designs Planner Facebook Group. So, needless to say that you will be seeing lots of posts of the different days in my planner through out December on my blog.  For this post, I thought I would share with you how to recreate the December Title page to mark the start of my December Day By Day. 


To start, you'll need the page from the Planner Essentials Die - 1. Choose a piece of patterned paper from the Christmas Market Collection by Carta Bella and die cut the page out. Ink the edges of the page using Black Soot Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.


From the Planner Essentials Die - 14 die, you'll need the star reinforcements. Choose a piece of patterned paper from the Christmas Market Collection by Carta Bella and die cut the reinforcement stars out. Ink the edges of the stars using Black Soot Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.


From the Planner Essentials - 12 die, die cut the base of the tree twice out of green patterned paper from the Christmas Market Collection by Carta Bella. Die cut the dotted tree out of red patterned paper from the same collection. Die cut the zig zag tree out of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Ink the edges of all the trees using Black Soot Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam. You will also want to die cut a total of nine stars out of White Soft Finish Cardstock using the stars from that die set.




Next, you'll need to choose two patterned papers. From the first patterned paper, die cut the 3 1/2" Stitched Indented Rectangle. Flip that patterned paper over and die cut the 3" Stitched Indented Rectangle. From the second patterned paper, die cut the 2 1/2" Stitched Indented rectangle out of it. Ink the edges of all three rectangles using Black Soot Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.


You'll need one doily. 


From the Planner Months die, die cut the December word out of green patterned paper from the Christmas Market Collection from Carta Bella.


Out of the Blackboard Numbers die, die cut the numbers 2019 out of the same patterned paper that you used for your page.


Choose three patterned papers that coordinate with the papers you've already used from the Christmas Collection by Carta Bella. Die cut a planner label out of each of the papers. Cut two of the labels in half. You will need three of the halves. Set the other half of the one label aside. Ink the edges of all of the labels using Black Soot Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.


Adhere the reinforcement stars over top of the circles on the page.


Adhere the doily to the middle of the 3 1/2" rectangle. Adhere the 3" rectangle to the middle of the 3 1/2" rectangle. Foam square the 3 1/2" rectangle 1/2" from the right and 1 3/4" from the top of the page. Adhere one of the half labels to the top right side of the 3 1/2" rectangle. Adhere another half of the label to the top right side of the 3 1/2" rectangle. Adhere the third half label to the bottom left side of the 3 1/2" rectangle. 


Adhere the 2 1/2" rectangle 7/8" from the bottom and 1/4" from the right of the page. Adhere the trees together. Use foam squares to adhere the zig zag tree to the middle of the rectangles. Use adhesive and foam squares to adhere the dotted tree to the left of the zig zag tree. 


Adhere the December word to the label. Foam square the label to the middle of the trees. Adhere the 2019 underneath the December label.


To finish the page, adhere the nine stars as desired around the page.


Here are a few closeup photos of the finished page.
